Hello and welcome to another Crafty Wednesday challenge, right here on my blog. I'm so glad you decided to check out the February theme and maybe you'll join in too! It was great seeing so many of you playing along last month showing your new goodies or old favorites, it was fun visiting your blogs and seeing all your creativity. Be sure to scroll down to the end of this post to see if you were last month's winner or one of my top picks!
This Month's Theme:
So for this month I picked a nice and easy one..........
Add A Sentiment.
This can be any type of sentiment, quote or verse. As always, the linky tool is at the end of this post along with the simple guidelines.
I used a cute stamp from Penny Black's set Birthday Critters, heat embossed my usual way using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Ultra Fine Embossing Powder on Bristol Vellum paper, then colored with Copic markers and cut out using a Circle Nestabilities Die and my manual Big Shot die cutting machine.
These pattern papers are from my stash, I've had them forever and I'm in the process of trying to use up more papers again. (It was my new year's resolution for 2019 but I've not done well, so I am trying again this year.)
The sentiment "Make a Wish" is part of the Penny Black set Sweet Wishes, a favorite set for whimsical birthday cards. I added staples for some interest and ribbon, which I really need to use up more of as well.
A close up below...As you can see I used a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush on the Happy Birthday banner and party hat. The sparkles on the designer paper were already part of it. I think the flowery paper is from a paper pack by DCWV.
