The Birthday Card today has 3 new items that I would like to point out to you.
Item # 1.......
The Happy Birthday verse comes from the "Big Day" Stamp Set. This is a Sale-A-Bration product that you can earn for FREE with a $50 purchase (beginning January 6th).
Item # 2.......
Chalkboard Paper is a new StampinUP product that is in the Occasions Mini Catalog (beginning Jan. 6th as well). You can get 10 6" x 12" sheets for $7.95.
Item # 3........
There will be 3 colors of the "Color Box Chalk Ink Pad" to pick from in the Occasions Catty. (Aquamarine, Rose Coral, and Yellow Citrus). For my card I used the "Rose Coral" and I think it blended pretty well with the Calypso Coral Cardstock I used for the one balloon on the right.
Other colors for this card project include: Crushed Curry, White, and Old Olive.
For the coral balloon and the verse I just stamped the images with the ColorBox Chalk Ink Pad and then heat-set them both with my heat gun to keep them from smearing.
Thanks very much for stopping by today- now go stamp something yourself! (smile) Lori
