On the Grow Birthday Card

Hi everyone it sure was a hot day here again and for the next 2 days too, so it was a good day to stay inside and play in the craft room!

I think this is about one of my favorite stamps that I've gotten recently. I LOVE to color, even as a little girl. One year for Christmas I got a box of crayons with 96 crayons in it and I really had a hard time letting anyone else use them as I didn't want my boy cousins' to break them, I wanted them to last forever! I really had a fun time with my blender pen and ink pad and markers the other day coloring this. I will definitely be making more cards with this stamp!

See the plaid background? I did that with an ink pad, brayer and the new Stampin' Up Stripes embossing folder. You ink up your brayer and apply the ink to one side of the embossing folder, run it thru your machine, than re-ink the folder again, but turn your card stock, than run it thru your machine a second time and that is what you get! I found this techiqune HERE, you will have to scroll down the post to see the card, Jan's card is so pretty too!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: On the Grow, Petite Pairs
Ink: Pool Party (use this with the blender pen to color the glass jar with), Black StaZon, Pretty In Pink and Black

such a lovely card, Mary! Love the way you raffled the ribbon. I used the same technique for an ice cream card I made :)
Thanks for sharing, Mary :)
