Birthday Wishes

Samantha with you again, and today I'm sharing a funky little birthday card! 

To be honest, I really just wanted to color and play with my favorite colors! Sometimes cards can be as simple as that! And it was SO much fun making this card with that cute little chameleon!! I love him! 

To create this card, you'll just need some time to have fun and create something to make you happy!

I started by using some embossing paste and my favorite stencil ever to create the fun little white on white background.
While that was drying, I cut a strip of white cardstock, the length of the card and started blending with Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.
Then I stamped on that background with the cute little leaf image!
Next, I stamped and colored the chameleon with Copics and then fussy cut him out!

I heat embossed the sentiment and also used a die cut for the word "Birthday"! Love mixing stamps and dies that way!
I popped up the sentiment onto the card front and it was done! :)

I used the Jungle Fever stamp set for the chameleon and little leaf images. The sentiment was created by combing the Mini Birthday stamp set and a word from the Tiny Sentiments Die! The stencil I used is the Skinny Chevron Stencil.

I really had fun making this card, and I think that's mostly because I used colors that make me happy, and images that are just plain FUN! So be sure to LIKE what you are doing when you make a card! It sounds so basic, but it's true! If you're happy, your card will be better for it! 

Did you know that Create a Smile stamps sells WAY more than just stamps? There a variety of exclusive chipboard shapes, stencils, acrylic blocks, washi tape, flair and Pretty Pink Posh Sequins to name a few other items! Make sure you check it ALL out here!!
