SHC - Spotlight Birthday ....

.... Morning! It's so hot and humid. I love the sunshine, but could do without the humidity. And the thunderstorms are just amazing - I watched one on Monday night that made the garden light up like midday!! And yesterday, I spent the afternoon sheltering in my craft room. I made several cards for my Seven Hills Craft blog post. Here's the first card:

Stamps: My Favorite Things - Spotlight Sentiments
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: MFT - Basic Stitch Lines
Accessories: Hero Arts White Cards; Sakura Stardust Pens

I stamped the birthday sentiment along the bottom half of the card, used glitter pens to highlight the open letters - making it a real 'spotlight' and finished by adding some die cut detail above the stamping. The inside is blank.

I also made a birthday card which I'm submitting to The Male Room - TMR#141 where it's their 7th birthday, and also to Cupcake Inspiration Challenge - CIC#499 where the theme is nautical.

Stamps: My Favorite Things - Spotlight Sentiments, Whimsical Greetings; Lawn Fawn - Smooth Sailing
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Kaleidacolor - Caribbean Sea
Accessories: Hero Arts White Cards; Kaisercraft DP - Costal Escape; SU Card - Granny Apple Green

I stamped the sentiment directly on white card using a multi-coloured stamp pad. I then cut some design paper to go above and below the sentiment - the colour suggests sky and sea. I edged the design paper with thin strips of green card. I finished by adding a little sailboat and some birds flying off in the distance. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of green card and on the white panel stamped a greeting, added another little boat and some tiny stars.

I made a further eight cards using the birthday sentiment stamp - each card stamped in different coloured inks.

I can either use the cards as they are - so very clean and simple, or I can dress them up as I did above using design papers, die cut edges. This is a fun stamp and I'll share the finished cards soon. That's all for today. Bye for now.
