Hope Your Birthday is a Smash

Welcome friends! I am delighted to be guest designing at CropStop today! CropStop has a fabulous selection of crafting supplies.

I've seen a few cards created with the new Lawn Fawn Year Seven stamp set and thought the pinata looked so fun! After stamping, colouring (including some Nuvo drops for a little bit of added detail) and cutting my pinata, I created a background using Martha Stewart fringe scissors and three colours of cardstock. I then used an MFT die to cut the fringed background as well as a white mat.

For the card base, I stamped the fun treats from the Year Seven stamp set in VersaMark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then layered the white and fringed mats on top with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive before affixing the pinata with foam dots. I tied some orange jute string for a bit of fun detail.

The banners were cut with dies from My Craft Spot (no longer in business) and stamped and heat embossed with the sentiment from the Year Seven Set. I finished things off with some bright yellow enamel dots.

Please head over to CropStop to check out the array of crafting supplies available. I'll be back next Friday with another CropStop guest design post!
