Little Birdie Crafts - Birthday Girl

Hello friends, thanks so much for dropping in.  We can never have too many birthday cards on hand.  I have used one of the Little Birdie Crafts newly released clear stamp sets - this adorable girl is perfect for birthday cards and many other occasions.

I have stamped both the image and the sentiment from the Birthday Wish clear stamp set onto white card stock using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. Next the image has been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  I have paper pieced the dress and balloons by stamping them on patterned paper and fussy cutting/hand cutting out using scissors and gluing them onto the co-ordinating image.

The completed image has been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Nestabilities Francesca Label Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  Before removing the die cut I have sponged around the inside edges with Imagine Memento Ink in Angel Pink and a Sponge Dauber. Next I have used the Little Birdie Crafts Chevron Stencil and lightly sponged using Imagine Radiant Neon Electric Yellow..  Remove from the Die and Pop up onto a pre-cut card front using largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies using Chevron 12"x12 patterned paper and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.

A Strip of patterned paper has been adhered across the card front - faux ribbon.  The die cut image has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The sentiment has been trimmed and layered onto slightly larger black card stock, then popped up under the Die cut image also using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares. A flower from a handmade embellishment has been adhered to the right end of the sentiment.

A double seam binding bow is glued to the left of the image, followed by a Little Birdie Crafts Flower to the knot of the bow.  A coat of Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellishment in Shimmer has been added to the balloons and allowed to dry.

Leaving you with the inspiration of the Scripture in 1 Thessalonians 2:13 which says, "And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe." Have a blessed day!
