Your Next Stamp August Feature Day - Make A Wish

It's time for Your Next Stamp's August Feature Day
This month's theme is "Make A Wish."
My mind went directly to making a birthday wish by blowing out the candle.
This month's new release Let's Paw-ty had the perfect cake image for me to use.  I stamped the cake, masked it off except for the candle then stamped using the Starburst Background set (largest starburst) just behind the candle with Premium Dye Ink Sunflower Yellow and the sentiment just below the cake using Whatnot Sentiments Nine.  I finished off the card by dry embossing my border using Stitched Scallop Rectangles Die Set

Supplies
Stamps: Let's Paw-ty, Whatnot Sentiments Nine, Starburst Background (Your Next Stamp) Paper: White Cardstock (Papertrey Ink) Ink: Premium Dye Ink Pads Black Olive, Sunflower Yellow, Copic Markers: E57, E37, E35, E000, E00, E11, BG0000, BG000, B01, RV25, RV23, RV21, Uniball Signo Broad White Gel Pen Accessories:  Stitched Scallop Rectangles Die Set (Your Next Stamp), Cuttlebug, post-it note Techniques: Dry Embossing, Masking

Your Next Stamp DT DARE - Color Me Happy


 Hi, this month's DT DARE theme at Your Next Stamp is - Color Me Happy
I went for a literal approach LOL.  I stamped this adorable flower from Let's Paw-ty all over the letters from Bold Happy Birthday Die Set.  I colored them in simply with Copics, easy peasy.  I made a shape card using the new Scallop Rectangles Die Set.  But I went about it in a little unusual way, I had trouble cutting through two pieces of my heavy #110 cardstock base.  So what I did was use an 80# base and it cut like butter then I cut two separate scallop rectangles, one for the front and one for the back.  The one for the back I cut the top of slightly to be level with the card base fold.   I used my "Happy" die negative to line up and pop up my "Happy" with foam tape on my card front just after I stamped "Birthday" using Spin and Twirl Carousel stamp by masking off the "Happy" in "Happy Birthday".  

GIVEAWAY
Now, just hop on over to
