Hey – here we are with a brand, spanking new challenge and this time it’s easy-peasy! One thing we girls here at APFP all have in common (amongst other things) is a deluge of birthdays in the month of July!! I think I have 7 in my family alone!! So, to help us out a little with the demand we thought we’d make this challenge a simple “Birthday” theme – anything goes as long as it is a card made to celebrate someones big day.
For my card I got out my favourite ink colours at the moment – shades of coral, peach and aqua. I love the Mini Blooms set from PTI and although it can be a tad fiddly with all the little die-cuts – the overall effect is usually worth it. I don’t know if it shows that well in the photo but I painted the raised die cuts with my clear Wink of Stella brush and it looks super sparkly in the light!!
Over to Kate: “Do you have a few basic card sketches that you fall back on when you’re really against the clock? This is one of mine – so I know it’s not going to win any prizes for design but it’s a trusted favourite when I need to make a card in a hurry!”
Over to Aimes:
I challenged myself to play with some of my scraps for this challenge and created a little birthday scene:
It’s hard to see, but I also used my cloud die as a stencil and inked some subtle white clouds in the background 🙂
We hope you get a chance to join in and share your birthday creations. Have a look here for all the challenge deets. The challenge closes at 9am on Monday July 29th and one randomly selected peep will win a $5 PTI gift certificate!
See you soon,
Caryn, Aimes and Kate xxx
