blog for Diane

[theme #30 required elements: 
for birthday= cake and candles; 'happy' and 'wishing' in the sentiment; and
for heart/love= 2 peach textured heart shapes]

Diane always has the sweetest images! This little chef is another prime example of delightfully wonderful coloring skills exhibited by Diane! The whimsy charm of 8 layers of cake would be a dream come true for many foodies! Having the hearts match the frosting and the slimline base cardstock is a terrific way to create a superb birthday card!

[theme #30 required elements:
for birthday occasion= cupcakes; sentiment "HB2U"; and
for heart/love= the cupcake paper has little red hearts; love stenciled 3 times]

I've kept the card fairly easy to make once I triple offset stenciled the 'love'. 2 layers are ink and the top/last layer applied was the bold purple acrylic paint. A bit messy but a different way to present how 'love' can be used in a project. Also the lettering and number stickers for the birthday sentiment could have been lost below the stenciling. Outlining the gold glitter stickers with black marker helps define those. The pink with white dot print repeats the sprinkle dots on the cupcakes. Simple yet effective ways to make a cute birthday card!


DT member Willa Jean

[theme #30 required elements: 

for birthday= stamped sentiment

for heart/love = 7 little enamel heart shapes]

Willa's crafted a wonderful springtime birthday card! She's coordinated this very well because the enamel heart shapes echo the floral print colors, and the scrap strip panel's color is the deepest orange tone from the floral print. Well done!
