Timeless Textures... Happy Birthday

This is another one of the cards we made recently at our Timeless Textures Stamp-a-Stack Class.

I mentioned in my last post that this was a set that maybe you're not sure what to do with it when you first see it...  or maybe you don't even really like it at first....

Well, that's exactly what happened to one of the gals at the Stamp-a-Stack class.  She really didn't think she even liked the set...  but, guess what....  after making 12 card with the set, it started to grow on her...  I don't think she left the class saying she liked the set, but.....  She came to see all of the possibilities of the set and just shared with me at a recent class that she does, in fact, really like the set now!  I feel like I've done my job :)

We start our card with a Crumb Cake card base, added a Whisper White layer, then started our stamping...
We stamped "Happy Birthday" from the Perfect Pairings Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set (yours FREE with a $50 order thru March 31!) in Blackberry Bliss ink.

Next, we stamped (from the Timeless Textures Stamp Set)....
-the grid of dots in Blackberry Bliss ink
-the water splotches and "circle rings", I'll call them, in Crumb Cake ink (I think those rings kind of look like something the bottom of your cup leaves on a tablecloth... how about you??)

We also stamped the balloons (from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set) in Tempting Turquoise ink and then punched them out with the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch.  These 2 items are bundled together for a 15% savings on both items!

We popped the balloons up on Dimensionals and added some Linen Thread "balloon strings" and a bow to the card.

We also added a few Rhinestones to the card for a final, finishing touch.
