Today both my boys were lucky enough to be invited to birthday parties, so Marius took Kyan to his and I accompanied Laurenz to my good friend Trisha’s place to celebrate the 7th birthday of her oldest, Rhyan. Now Rhyan is dear to my heart as I have known him since he was 6 weeks old (give or take) and boy was he a little baby being premature – but to look at him know with long 7 year old running legs, you’d never know!
Now you are probably asking yourself what could this possibly have to do with stamping? The birthday cards of course! I have recently purchased the Beware Pirates Stampset and I’ve got to tell you it is soooo much fun to stamp with! My colour scheme started with a really fun Pirate wrapping paper I found in Big W, and I could instantly see that it would tone with my favourite retired colour – Kiwi Kiss (or Old Olive if you have that one), Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise with of course Black and White…
I started with creating my own DSP by stamping the images in different colours randomly over the Whisper White mat:
and then stamped the central image with versamark and embossed with Black Embossing Powder and a heat gun.
and let’s not forget the envelope!
