Wednesday’s Card: Birthday Stack

Birthday Stack

Birthday Stack

I love this stamp from Hero Arts! This card is so easy… it’s really just a lot of cutting. I also thought it would be cool to stamp the presents each on a different patterned paper… I’ll have to save that for another time.

I drew the outlines (white on gray and black on white) so that they would not be perfectly straight – I think it adds a little handmade touch to it. I made the candle hang off the top of the gray piece to add a little dimension. I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I like the way it came out.

I’ve been asked to be a guest blogger at Two Peas in a Bucket!! I created a special card and video for them, which I will post as my Wednesday video next week. Until then… have a wonderful week!

    I LOVE this card. I’ve had the Hero Arts stamp for quite a while, and was trying to figure out something interesting to do with it. Thanks for showing me. This is a fabulous card.

    Good morning again, Darlene: Goodness!!!!! you have the most amazing, creative and inspirational ideas I’ve ever seen anywhere. Thank God I ordered the SU Owl Punch, my dear Darlene otherwise, I don’t know if I ever would have come across your amazing videos and blog. Every day, I sit here in my craft room and I watch in awe how you make this incredible cards and, just so you know, the video of your owl card, the first one I saw helped me do this same card for my little 9 year old granddaughter, who loves owls and she loved it.
    I feel blessed to have this chance to get to know your work and to learn so much from your talent and generosity.
    Thank you and God Bless you, always.
