Happy Birthday Backgrounds

It's color challenge time at Hand Stamped Sentiments and we are mixing Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive.  This is a sweet combination, however I switched out the Marina Mist for the new Balmy Blue.  The new hue of blue is a tad softer and so lovely and totally yummy.
I cut the Happy Birthday Thinly three times.  Twice from scratch cardstock and once from the Share What You Love DSP.  I glued them all together to create dimension without having to use Stampin' Dimensionals.  I do this because the thinlit is so detailed and snipping itty bitty pieces of dimensionals would be too much of a pain.  I also added a thick coat of Fine Tip Glue to the top of the happy birthday cut out.  This gives it tons of shine and even more dimension.

The rows of Balmy Blue candles were stamped with the Birthday Backgrounds Stamp Set.  There is also a bit more shine in the background.  Each of the candles has been detailed with a dusting of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper add just a bit more sparkle to the card.  The last touch was to add Basic Rhinestone Jewels to each balloon.  I like that little bit of silver to tie into the glimmer paper.


  1. What a festive, fun card! The bit of sparkle puts just the right finishing touch on!

  2. You're truly an Artisan! What a lovely birthday card! So smart of you to to adhere the Happy Birthday to scratch cardstock to add dimension. Thank you for sharing your creativity with Hand Stamped Sentiments.
