Today we are showcasing the "All Aboard" and "Birthday Express" stamps

Here's what I've created for you!


I had so much fun creating this card! I used this cute little image of the giraffe from the "Birthday Express" stamp set. I colored him up with my Copic markers and added some Clear Wink of Stella to give him a little sparkle.


My sentiment is from the "All Aboard" stamp set. It really coordinates well with these images! 

Don't you just love my background! I do!! 

I had wanted to try creating a Bokeh background and my first attempt was bleh! But this one came out just perfect. I used Tim Holtz Distress inks in the following colors to get this look: Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade, and Cracked Pistachio. Such a fun technique that I know I will try again!


My banner was hand cut. I didn't have quite the right shade of solid cardstock so I created my own by inking my white cardstock with my Distress inks.

To finish the card off I just had to add some sequins!

I hope you enjoyed my first sneak peek! Can't wait show you some more!


Be sure to join us tomorrow for another great new stamp set.
