Challenge#84: Emboss, emboss, emboss……..

The TWIST is to make it for a male!
The Random Number Draw prize will be Stampin’ Up’s
I began by using embossing paste coloured with re-inker and circle stencil.  Once dry I cut to desired size for my card front and mounted on cs of the same colour.  I used my large letters and number to die cut HB2U (Happy Birthday to You) in silver foil.  I then embossed those with a Kaisercraft embossing folder and added them to my card base with foam tabs.
Excluding the drying time this was a pretty quick and easy card and I think great for a boy/young male adult.  Mr M (20) did confirm he would be happy to give to one of his mates for an upcoming birthday.
Hope to see you in the challenge. Remember no stamps!

Rainbows and Unicorns…


Today I am sharing a card using Jane’s Doodles Unicorn and Birthday Wishes stamp sets.

I am linking up to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday here no toppings for me this time

For my regular readers this will not surprise it was a specific request by Mr M for a friend.  Mr M and his friends have regular games days/nights where they play board games for about 12-14 hours.  And before you ask they do play board games because we regularly have the event out our place.  Any way one of the girls is having a birthday and this is the resulting card. The boys all chipped in and bought an add on pack for one of her board games – cause they get to use it too! Not so silly.  It did remind me of the kind of gifts partners buy each other like a kitchen appliance or garden equipment! Everyone gets something out of those types of gifts.

Enough of my waffle. I created the cloud base using embossing paste and a cloud stencil. I stamped and coloured my images with alcohol markers and popped them up on my card front.  I used my alcohol markers to colour a small section of cardstock and punched out the little hearts, adding them to the card front and adding a wink of stella.

Thanks for stopping
