Happy Birthday Hand Made Card with Ink Blending ON the Stamp!

Ink Blended Stamp Happy Birthday Card 2 I tried something new today!  YIPPEEEE!

My first YouTube video was 8 or 9 years ago…my first Facebook Live was…ummm….I’m not sure how long ago, but it’s been a while!

Today we married those two and I did a YouTube Live!  I actually had to try three times before I got it right!  The first time I made a card start to finish and wondered the whole time why no one was on with me!  Once I finished I realized that the video wasn’t public.

Back to the drawing board.

Second time, I realized very quickly that I had made the same mistake.

Third time was a charm!

Kelly hung out for a bit and we talked about some office-happenin’s…can you guess what is in our shower at the office?

Did you know we have a SHOWER in the office?  Along with a kitchen, a couch and all the stamps your little heart desires.  Who’s comin’ for a sleepover?

Then we got to the stamping.  I actually remade the card I did on take #1 with a slight twist.

I love these background blocks with blended ink on them!  What a fun backdrop for the line art presents (or envelopes or paper airplanes from the Happiness Enclosed Stamp Set!).

Ink Blended Stamp Happy Birthday Card I cut the layer down, added another layer die cut with the Postage Stamp Die, I added my sentiment and some sequins (to cover my smudges!) and I was done!
