Birthday With Friends

Hi and welcome to my blog. What can be better than celebrating a birthday with friends? My stamping friends and I celebrate our birthdays at a favorite scrapbook store where we spend the day stamping, chatting and eating cake! It is always a fun day. We just celebrated a birthday the first of this month and we are ready to celebrate again in July. I want to show you the birthday tag I made with these cute House Mouse friends. I just bought the stamp and numbers dies today!

I followed Tim Holtz's techniques for his June tag. I sponged a tag with Distress inks. I then took out some white tissue paper and stamped the music and birthday on it. I covered another tag with white school glue and adhered the stamped tissue paper on the tag and smooshed it around a little to make wrinkles. When this dried, I used Tim Holtz's numbers dies on the tag. I adhered this tag over my background tag for the colors to show through the numbers. The image was stamped, colored with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut and pop dotted to the tag. The ribbon was colored using Distress inks. I also added stickles glitter to the cupcake.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Hi April, I love your tag! I am a die hard House Mouse lover. I used to own my own group called "The best of House Mouse". Apparently we are neighbors here in South Carolina! I am in Easley and would love to hear from you and find out where you are! By reading your profile, it looks like we have some things in common. If you choose to contact me, my e-mail is pepperirish @ yahoo dot com.
