KinderStampO's "34 Birthday Candles and Counting" Blog Hop

Hello Scrappy Friends. Welcome to KinderStampO's Big 34th Bday Celebration. Jessica lined up over 40 blogs for you to visit to get some birthday inspiration. The hop began at Jessica's blog, KinderStampO, and will end there as well. Ok, so lets get started....

You should be arriving from Jessica, Creative Stamper.
[Lovely name by the way, lol. And the host has an even lovelier name :)]

Today's birthday card project features one of my favorite tools (if you can call it that). Aside from using my cricut machine, I enjoy coloring digi stamps or rubber stamps. I find it relaxing to pull out my stamps and crayons and go at it as if I was still in elementary school. Granted I sometimes take over an hour to color an image such as this one but that's besides the point :)

Picture 1:
I chose this image because my bday is 2 weeks before Halloween and ever since I can remember, I've always had my birthday associated with the holiday. I even received an Orange Halloween cake from a friend on my 21st bday instead of a regular birthday cake. lol. So because of that, I like the cutie gothic bday images such as this one.
Picture 2: Pinky digi stamp from Tiddly Inks
Colored with my Prismacolor Pencils

RECIPE
A2 Size Base: 4.25x5.5
Layer 1: 4x5.25
Layer 2: 3x4.75
Happy Birthday Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart "Loopy Loop" Edge Punch
*I'm not certain of the name because I threw the packaging but it was something around that line.


In case you get lost, you can find the complete lineup at KinderStampO's blog.

Thank you Jessica for hosting this big bash and allowing me to be part of it. Happy Birthday!!!

** Your next stop is Jill,The Scrapaholic
Happy Hopping!
