Happy Birthday!

I made this little one for my nephew, who's 12 today!  Happy Birthday, Matt!!  I've used Pennant Parade for the party hats layered over the Square and Large Square punches.  The background I ran through my Big Shot using Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes which is a super exclusive Hostess Set in 2011-12 catalogue.  I've used the Stampin' Write markers to ink up.

Stampin' Write markers are a superb way to inking up your images with multi-colours.  These are available as a set of the all the core colours £89.95 and comes in a super storage case with room for all the current in colours.  In Colours can be purchased separately for £11.75 each or indeed, if you prefer, you can buy them singlely for £2.95 to get your favourites.

I {Heart} Anniversary!

Happy 15th Anniversary to my Dad and stepmum, Morag!

I've used a new technique for me here.  I've stamped a heart image from the I {Heart} Hearts set onto a clear block.  The image doesn't stamp perfectly so I filled it in using my Stampin' Write marker in Rose Red.  The resulting image looks like it's been done in chalk and, I think, gives it a really hand done look!  The sentiment is from Teeny Weeny Wishes and completed with 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in Whisper White topped with Rhinestone jewels.
