TCBJ Birthday Facebook Hop!

Today is the Day2 of the Too Cute By Jessica’s Birthday Facebook Hop featuring Craftin Desert Divas. TCBJ is turning  3 and we are celebrating with some new SVG Files & Digi Stamps along with freebies and fabulous prizes.


Here is what I made for the celebration:


As soon as I saw the “Birthday Girl with Balloons” digital stamp, I fell in love with it. For this hop, I wanted to create something soft and sweet with this sweet girl! I would like to mention that pistachio ice cream and orange sorbet was my inspiration for the color scheme.

How I created this card:

  1. I sized and printed “Birthday Girl with Balloons” digital stamp. The girl was printed on the cardstock and the sentiment on the vellum. I fussy cut the girl image and colored with Copic markers.
  2. I die cut the banner out of silver glitter cardstock, and cut another one with white cardstock. I colored the inner pieces of the white banner die cut and pieced them with the silver glitter banner. I also die cut a little bow to embellish the balloons. All the dies are from CDD’s “Party Dies.”
  3. I prepped the background by water coloring and splashing with Distress inks (Cracked Pistachio & Dried Marigold). I let it dry completely and die cut the background panel with CDD’s Fancy Frame die.
  4. I swiped the Versamark ink around the white card base and heat embossed in silver.
  5. I adhered all the elements on the card base and finished off the card by adding some clear wink of stella & glossy accents on balloons and the party hat. I also adhered some CDD’s “Sunny Days” sequins.


I hope you enjoyed the card!
