Happy Birthday to You!!

I made this card for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #147 - Birthday Girl. I used the Tin Roof stamp and embossed it in silver. I cut down that panel with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. Next I layered the panel in a piece of silver cardstock, and mounted on this on a card base of blue violet from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from All About You by CAS-ual Fridays. I cut the words apart to make the sentiment horizontal and stamped it on a stitched fishtail tag of the same blue violet cardstock and embossed it in white. The die cut You is Is from the 2 Yous dies from CAS-ual Fridays. I die cut 3 white and 1 blue violet and layered the 3 white die cuts together and embossed the top 3 times with silver embossing powder and finished by mounting them on the blue violet die slightly offset.

Thank you for coming by and having a look.  Susan

It's amazing how different the Tin Roof set can look, depending on what colour you've stamped it in! It looks fabulous in silver and I love the embossed sentiment. Almost look like melted metal! Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!

CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection
There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.

Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!! These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.

Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook …

Michelle's 50th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

You should have come here from Kelly's Blog. If you want to see the whole blog hop list or start from the beginning go to the  CAS-ual Fridays Blog
Here is my card to celebrate!!





I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…
