Bits and Bobs #5

Hi and welcome back to my bits and bobs series. Rummaging through my drawers I came across some Honey Pop. I have had this for many years and in many different colors and I don't think I have ever used it! It is fun stuff and is great for using inside a card for a fun surprise. I will get to that in a bit.

On the front of this card I used a background I found in my stash where I used a stencil, patted Distress inks on the stencil, spritzed with water and pressed card stock on it with my hand. I thought it would be a fun background for a birthday card.

I found these candles in my image file that are from Close To My Heart. I colored them with a colored pencil and Gamsol, fussy cut them and adhered them to the background. I punched the flames out with a circle punch and added Stickles glitter. I had the candles all lined up in a row to see where to place my saying when they moved wonky, but you know, I liked that better! So sometimes a mistake can be better!

Here is the Honey Pop I was talking about earlier. I made a balloon with it so that it pops out when you open the card. You have seen this in party decorations I am sure. Anyway, it comes flat and you stamp your stamp on it and fussy cut as normal. Place a glue dot on both sides of the image and adhere it inside the card. When it opens the image puffs out. I really need to use this more often!

I also had this bird image already colored in my image pile, so I fussy cut him and added him to the inside.

I hope you enjoyed my bits and bobs card today. I hope this inspires you to dig through your stash and find some fun things to play with again!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

The background is totally perfect for a birthday card, and I do love your fun surprise for the inside of the car

Fantastic card, inside and out. I just love the colors! Really bright and cheery for a birthday card, and I love the bird inside. Such a surprise to have him and the honey pop balloon when you open it up.

The honey pop is so much fun. I love the way you adhered it as if the bird is holding the string! So cool.
