The Stamps of Life: Make a Wish!


Hi, friends!  I am so excited to be sharing my first card using products from The Stamps of Life as a DT member!!!  If you haven't heard of this fun company, you HAVE to check them out!  Such fun products!  Come and take a peek at the card I have for you today...


I decided that I need to start building up my stash of masculine birthday cards because I just do NOT have any on hand EVER!  For this card, I started by creating a card base with the new Love Story papers.  These papers aren't just for Valentines, friends!  LOVE the fun bold patterns in this pad!

I stamped a candle image from the candles4birthday stamp set with Licorice ink and die cut it with the coordinating Candle Club Die Set.  I decided to try some pointillism coloring with alcohol markers and I LOVE the way it turned out!


I added a stamped sentiment from the same candles4birthday stamp set.  It was also stamped in the same Licorice ink as the candle and I punched it out as a banner just for fun!  All of my panels are backed with Licorice cardstock.


All that was left to add a few enamel dots, and voila!  A fun and bold masculine birthday card!  I do believe this one is destined to be sent to my brother for his birthday next month!  Luckily for me, this card is easy to recreate and so I'll be making more of them soon!  What do you think about it?  I'd love for you to leave me a comment below and let me know!


I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~



That's all for me today, all!  Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I hope you come and join the fun of these fabulous challenges and that you grab these goodies from The Stamps of Life!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
