Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Party Time


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Christmas Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

Party Time

It's time to put on your glad rags and party!!
We are showcasing  Your Next Stamp Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! 

 Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Here's my card on which I used Rainbow Sparkle Gumdrops and Watermelon Party GumdropsI made a birthday party card because it was really my birthday when I made this. I made it just for me celebrating my own :) Hope you will like it, too. 

For the background, I did stencil using Celebrate Stencil and distress inks and Detail Blending Tools  then I diecut the panel using Wonky Rectangles Dies
I colored candles from Birthday Borders Stamp set using my Copic markers and diecut the image with Birthday Borders Coordinating Dies.

Sentiment from the same set was heat embossed in white using Fine Detail White Embossing Powder, which I found is super fine to be used in small and/or thin sentiment and highly recommendable. 

I foam mounted candles and sentiment on the panel then I foam mounted the panel onto the Schoolhouse Red Card base
I then embellished my card using Rainbow Sparkle Gumdrops ,  Watermelon Party Gumdrops and May Arts Ivory Twine.  I really love fun colors and sparkles of these gum drops from Your Next Stamp

So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting
