Happy 12th Birthday

Hi there! Jean here! The holidays are finally over, time to put my Christmas stamp sets away. Well, perhaps not, Ivana did re-purpose some Christmas stamps and made a great non-Christmas card with them. It just goes to show how versatile TCM stamp sets are. 

My niece's birthday is coming up so I decided to make a birthday card for her. She loves pink so I have a VERY pink card for her! :)

I used I've Got Your Number, Life is a Carnival, Telegram,  and Timeless Tags. You know me, I love to combine different images from different stamp sets.

I took the cotton candy image from Life is a Carnival and stamped it in Hero Arts Shadow Inks Soft Blossom and Soft Brown. I stamped it in repeatedly and built up the layers.

 I stamped the number 12 from I've Got Your Number and layered it over the sentiment tag from Timeless Tags. I'm in love with baker's twine these days and so I added that too.

 Here's another shot of my card. There are so many layers here I just can't count them anymore. lol.

 See how many sets you can combine to use in your card and get inky! Thanks for stopping by today! Come back tomorrow for our January Blog Hop! See you there! :)

Мне очень понравилась идея многослойности со штампом!!!Красивый прием в декоре открытки. И коричневый с розовым в сочетании нежно смотрятся!
