Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I made a Happy Birthday party card! I believe this is the “happiest” birthday card I have ever made. So it is very appropriate for a themed blog hop. The We Must Celebrate stamp set was the perfect set for what I envisioned.
If you noticed that my animals are not in the line like their stamp is, you are very observatve. I cut them apart!! I know it is a shock to a lot of you, and it is the first time I have ever had the nerve to do this. I have to say that it will not be the last time I do it. I love the versatility it gives. And I cut them so that they nestle back together on a large clear block just like they originally were. A win/ win for me.
I colored the guys with the Stampin’ Blends, my favorite product right now. The DSP is the FREE Bubbles & Fizz DSP from Sale-A-Bration. The layers are Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral. I made a banner and gave it a jaunty angle to go with my happy guys on the card.
The measurements are below the list of blog hop names. I have some funky measurements because I started with a piece of Whisper White that was on my desk and loved how it turned out. So I had to work with those measurements.
