Happy Birthday

Good Sunday morning all!  I started with a piece of card from my background stash.  I used Sun Yellow, Burnt Orange and Lava Red Pixie Powders on this piece.  Next I cut the Birthday Big Bold Word die/stamp combo out of black card.  I added the black outline to a white backing piece.  Next I covered a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet and coated it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I cut the Birthday die out of it and kept all the fall away pieces from it.  I paper pieced them back into the black outline giving the Birthday a bit of sparkly bling.  I stamped the Happy part of the sentiment on to a piece of leftover pixied card and cut it out with the tag in the die set.  I added it to the middle of the card with mounting foam.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Perfect for a quick make, Perfect for all kinds of background paper, so many ways to use the big dies/stamps and after all the experimental work you've done and passed your knowledge to us how can we fail lol.
Congratulations on your new family Prince June H.

Good morning Sue.
Why would I get up before seven on a Sunday morning if I didn't have the blog to look forward to?
I wasn't too sure that I liked the big bold dies when You first showcased them but I've grown to really like them and to appreciate their versatility. Todays offering is absolutely beautiful.
Thank you Sue.
