Happy birthday, Stampin' Addicts!


So I hope you enjoyed the Birthday Blog Hop this past weekend!  I created this card in honor of Stampin' Addicts' first birthday, using a little help from Mojo Monday's sketch and colourQ's color combo this week...

Arielle's color picks were Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Apricot Appeal, and Green Galore.  Green Galore is definitely a color I don't use very much!  I balanced out these bright colors with Basic Black and Whisper White, and my card measures 4-1/4" square.  To create the focal point, I stamped the turtle from Fox & Friends in Green Galore, then added a little cupcake on top of his shell from Crazy for Cupcakes.  The Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set has a pedestal with several cupcakes on it, but I simply stamped and cut one out.  I then colored in the cupcake using the ink pads and Blender Pen.  Too cute!

If you haven't checked out Stampin' Addicts yet, you really should!  It is a positive community for stampers, centered around Stampin' Up!.  Feel free to give me a shout-out over there.. my username is simply Melissa!

See you later!
