Happy Birthday!

I’ve been playing with the new set called Kimono Kids this week. Its what I call an open image, or one that is stamped in outline and has to be colored in somehow. I chose to stamp it on colored cardstock and then cut the pieces out and mount them on whipser white.

This card is also in celebration of someone’s birthday! Leanne, of Weeinklings, is celebrating her birthday today! She is a very talented stamper who is always giving me sweet words of encouragment! Thanks Leanne for allways being so sweet! Hope you have a great one! 🙂

I used colors from Diva Coffee Break Designs and this sketch from Just Add Ink.


Stamps: Kimono Kids, Staring You (retired)
Ink and Paper: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Temting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Whisper White Craft Ink
Other: Square Punch, Old Olive STriped Grossgrain Ribbon, Antique Brads, Pop Dots, Itty Bitty Flower Punch, Vintage Brads, Scallop Trim Border Bunch, white embossing powder
