Michele's 50th Birthday Bash!

Happy Friday crafty friends! Today, I am super excited to be hopping along for Michele's 50th Birthday Bash! Michele is the owner of CAS-ual Friday's Stamps and we are blog hopping to celebrate 50!

You have the chance of winning one of 5 $50 dollar gift cards! One winner will be chosen from the CAS-ual Friday's company blog and four others will be chosen randomly from comments on the various blog hop posts. Good luck and enjoy the hop!

The entire list of blog links can be found on the CAS-ual Friday's blog. You will have arrived here from the super talented Virginia Lu's blog.



My project features some of my favorite CAS-ual Friday's products! I knew I absolutely wanted to use my Truth Is stamp set these flowers make my heart flutter! And I figured what's better than a rainbow to bring in a big birthday!


I started by stamping my blooms with Catherine Pooler's Lime Rickey Ink (all of the inks used on this project are by Catherine Pooler) on the side of the panel so that I could accommodate the Birthday from the Shenanigans stamp set.  I then stamped my sentiments, I used CP Midnight for the happy and the sentiment on the bottom of the panel and a mix of the CP pastel collection for the birthday. These inks stamp so smoothly that it was easy to create a rainbow with the birthday sentiment.  


I then stamped and gold embossed a series of the blooms on a separate piece of Neena 80 lbs card stock so that I could color with my Copics in rainbow colors.  I then used the Truth Bloom die and die cut all of my flowers. I used foam tape to give some dimension on all the blooms and cut the excess on the sides. I topped off the project with a mix of Lucie's Little Things Rainbow gems and some black Nuvo Crystal Drops for the flower centres. 

Your next stop on the hop is the super talented Michelle Wallace. Don't forget to leave a comment for the chance to win! Enjoy :) Happy Birthday Michele!


Thanks for taking the time!
