Golden Birthday

Hi stampers!  I have a card today that was inspired by one on the SU "blog" this week. One of the posts was all about gold and I loved it!  I pulled out my much neglected shimmer paint and recreated their card for my little cousin Kyleigh's first birthday.  It almost goes with her present which is the sweetest most adorable little spring jacket with polka dots :-)
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  None!
Paper:  Whisper white, calypso coral, 2011-2013 in colors DSP stack
Ink:  None!
Accessories:  Sponge dauber, champaign shimmer paint, vintage faceted buttons, linen thread, sizzix alphabet (name escapes me at the moment), chipboard
All I did was use a sponge dauber to randomly place polka dots with the shimmer paint.  Would be pretty with the other colors too I think!  It does take a while to dry.  I set mine aside over night and assembled it the next day so this isn't a great last minute card :-)  I also sponged the number with the shimmer paint.

Oh and in case you wondered (since I don't do square cards much) it's 5 x 5.

Happy first birthday little cousin and happy stamping!


  1. Simply adorable! Love the gold dots; I'll have to remember to try that. --Doris

  2. This card makes my heart happy. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us.


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
