I have four fun filled birthday cards to share with you today. The first one features the new Birthday Chalkboard Greetings stamp set and the Blueprints 17 Die-namics


Using Versamark Ink, I stamped the sentiments from the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings and a few swirls from the Chalkboard Greetings Too stamp set on a piece of Black Licorice card stock. I embossed the sentiments with some bright Zing embossing powder. I created a shadow effect on the letters with a white Prismacolor pencil. To finish off the chalkboard look, I added some Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink to the edges of the card stock.


The chalkboard was die-cut with the Blueprints 17 Die-namics. I used Chocolate Brown card stock and I added a little Chocolate Brown Hybrid Ink to bring out the wood grain.


I used the same Birthday Chalkboard Greetings stamp set and Blueprints 17 Die-namics on this card, as I did on the first, but the here look is quite different.

This card has a cleaner chalkboard than the first card as I didn't add the extra shading or any extra ink.


I used the much lighter Kraft card stock for this card which also changes the overall look.


For my next card, I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings stamp set in Lemon Drop Hybrid Ink.


I die-cut the balloons in Lemon Drop and Razzle Berry card stock. The Razzle Berry balloon was stamped with the Happy Birthday Background stamp. For the Lemon Drop balloon I used the Diagonal Stripes Stencil and Lemon Drop Hybrid Ink.

On the inside of the card, I added another sentiment from the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings stamp set.


My final card tonight is a sweet one. It features the new Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set, the Birthday Greetings Background, the Pinking Circle STAX Die-namics, and the Diagonal Stripes Stencil.


I stamped the cupcakes on a piece of X-Press It card stock and I coloured them with Copics. I added a touch of Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze to the top of each cupcake for that extra bit of shimmer.


The background was created with the Birthday Background stamp and Diagonal Stripes Stencil.


Thank you again for joining me this week. Your sweet comments always brighten my day! Don't forget to check out the MFT Blog to see all the fabulous creations the design team has to share with you.
