He had a great time and said he wished his birthday was every day. I don't think our bank account could handle that, LOL! We're having his birthday party at the house this Saturday with family, friends, and lots of kiddos. We have two blow-up water slides so there will be lots of wet & wild fun! Unfortunately, my house is a disaster because I've been working on DT cards, so I have lots of cleaning up to do before then....UGH!
The challenge this week at CropStop is to use "Summer" as your inspiration. I decided to use Happy Tilda....she's just so happy about summer and Isaiah's birthday party, haha! I think this image is adorable and so versatile for various celebrations. She just makes me smile...almost giggle!
She's covered in lots of Stardust Stickles. I also added Glossy Accents to her shoes to give them that shine. For the background scene I used a free digital image from Make It Crafty called Rainbow Landscape Set. The scene is colored with Copics and the sky and grassy areas are shaded with chalk. I also cut out additional cloud shapes, added liquid applique to the top to give them the puffy look and raised them on pop-dots.
I used my SB Labels One and traced the template to make my window. I used my X-acto knife to cut out the window and around the roses. The flowers in the corner are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The beautiful ribbon came from CropStop. The beautiful dp with roses is from Pink Paislee Sweetness. The sentiment came from two different Close to my Heart stamp sets and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
You can see better in the side view where I cut the window out of the front of the card and attached my scene to the inside. I also used pop-dots behind Tilda. The pink polka dot paper came from my stash. I used Scor-tape to put my card together. You've got to try it...it's amazing!! I use it for all my 3-D projects too because it holds like nothing else! The other great thing....you don't need scissors to cut it! You just tear off what you need....easy peasy!
I hope you get a chance to play along in our CropStop "Summer" Challenge this week. We also have an additional contest going on until June 30th for our "Celebrate Summer" blog hop. You can see all the details on this contest here. Each Creative Team member has a different challenge for you. The more challenges you complete and link up before June 30th, the more chances you have at winning some awesome prizes!! I hope to see you there!
Have a great week my friends!
