SISC #15 Inspiration Photo for a Birthday Card

Hello out there! It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge with the Groovy Gurlz! I’ve got an inspiration pic to share with you.

SISC15Bday

The mission is to chose one of the color combos on these fabulous cakes and make a birthday card! I love the colors on the cake on the right, so that’s what I used.

Beachy-Keen-1

So let me be straight with you. This card doesn’t look finished to me. I think I need to add some Stickles to the circles (in silver). It just needs a bit ‘o glam. But, it’s late and I am exhausted… so I will have to play around with it at a later time. I do however, love how Beach Maddie came out!

Beachy-Keen-2

She’s rockin’ a bit of a tan. And her hair has been kissed by the sun. Not your tyical birthday card, I know…but we like to groove a little differently here right? Plus, when I thought of this senti, I knew I had a winner!

Beachy-Keen-3

“Hope your Birthday is Beachy-Keen!” Cute right? Thanks! So other then the lack of glitz, I thing the card is super cute. And it’s just a teeny taste of what’s to come!!! (…hint)

So go and check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz projects now! You are sure to love ‘em all! And then, it’s your turn to play along! Don’t ya wanna win some free digis??? Join the insanity!!!

Erica said…
This is beautiful! Love the layout and the way you colored Maddie!

Hey Alison, thank you so much for always stopping by my blog to show me so love. I love your card. I almost did the same thing with the circles but less is more with a masculine card.
Beth said…
I love this!! You did an amazing job toning in her skin - geez, Girl!! Beautiful work! I think it looks fab - I always think my cards don't look finished and then I crush them into "overdone"... lol Great card!!

Too cute! I like how you carried out the polka dot theme in addition to the color scheme. I think it looks finished, but you do love your sparkle ;o)

Alison, this is a terrific card! It totally represents the inspiration photo really well! Love the big dots of paper and the pencil work on Maddie ;D

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
