{ It's Your Day }


Just playing around with some new dollar stamps I got from Michael's. I like the designs of the acrylic dollar stamps much better than the rubber ones. Plus you get 5 stamps for a dollar! I had fun making the bright cheery birthday card. All the coloring was done with a blender pen and water color crayons. I used Stazon ink so it wouldn't bleed with the watercoloring. The dots around the punched circle were done with a Basic Black Write Marker. This card is pretty straight forward, a simple one layer card. Hope you like!

Supplies:

Stamps: Michael's Acrylic Dollar Stamps
Ink: Stazon Jet Black
Paper: Misc Off White Confetti
Embellishments: SU Ribbon, Misc Ribbon
Other: 2in Circle Punch, SU Hole Punch, Pastels, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Blender Pen Write Marker

Nothing "simple" about this card, sweetie...it's adorable!!! When you post cards like this and beginners see them, they are inspired because it's a card they can make! It's nice that you include your techniques, too.

Question Lindsi: I notice you use SU Water Color Crayons. Are they easy to use? I have been thinking of getting them.
Thanks,

Extremely easy to use!!! I love them. I use a blender pen to color with them because I'm not to good with a brush. But I love them! Definatly worth the $$$. I find myself using them much more than the pencils, markers or pastels.
