Happy Birthday day! Time to show a couple very different birthday cards made with Unity Stamps. I certainly appreciate all of your support over the last few days.
The happy owl (I do like the owls) comes from the “Hugs, Kisses & Birthday Wishes” sentiment kit. This one has a LOT of great birthday sentiments – I went with a simple Happy Birthday sentiment on the front – the inside sentiment is “I hope your Birthday is full of cake and balloons and love and laughter”. What a great sentiment!
I stamped the owl on watercolor paper and used my zig clean brush markers and a water brush to paint all the fun balloons and owl. The edging is done with Distress Oxide Mustard Seed. A colorful background panel and bright yellow cardstock makes it all pop.
My second card is a simple, masculine card. I used the “Vintage Older Than Me” stamp – one stamp with all kinds of goodness on it. I stamped in GinaKDesigns Dark Chocolate ink on a kraft panel, then put that on a Dark Chocolate frame. This was pop-dotted onto a wood design piece of designer paper on a pale grey cardstock. I did have to use a white gel pen to pick up the last line – I can never seem to get the letters on a dark background to show up. Takes practice I guess.
I hope you have been enjoying my GIU week. These are links to the first 3 days.
Tomorrow will be my last day and I am looking forward to sharing again with you.
Until then – Hugs Mary Kay
