Wishing You a Happy Birthday (A Wish For Everything)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, Happy Halloween! What a different experience it is going to be for many this year!  Halloween isn’t a big thing in Australia, although it is gaining popularity.  Not much happens in my neighbourhood most years.  The card I am sharing isn’t one you’d necessarily pick as being Halloween but I thought it seemed a perfect option for today.  The card uses items from the Magic In This Night suite which is the main offering from Stampin’ Up! for Halloween this year.  Stampin’ Up! is also the source of inspiration for my card.  I’m CASE-ing (Copy And Share Everything) a card they shared on their Facebook page yesterday.  It immediately grabbed my attention and I wanted to share the idea with you all.

First up, you’ll need the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper.  Find the black floral image design, grab your Paper Snips and start cutting out all the different images.  To add colour, I scribbled the Pretty Peacock Stamp ‘N Write Marker on to an Acrylic Block.  With my Water Painter, I picked up some of the ink and watercoloured some of the images.  I had initially tried to colour directly on to the paper but I found it was too dark and you lost some of the detail of the paper.  I adhered the images to the cardstock panel.  Next up, I added my sentiment.  The stamped images are from A Wish For Everything.  The die is from the coordinating die set Word Wishes.   The sequins were the finishing touch.  I used the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins as that was all I had on hand.  I first coloured the Balmy Blue sequins with the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends Marker but it wasn’t quite the right colour.  I then tried colouring over this with the Pretty Peacock Stamp ‘N Write Marker.  It did work but it can wipe off so I probably wouldn’t use this in the future. I’ll stick to using Stampin’ Blends to colour sequins and rhinestones.

Here’s the card

Isn’t it awesome? I love the dark colours with the Pretty Peacock.  It’s so different!  I think it would also look fabulous when combined with Blackberry Bliss too!  I hope you’ll give it a go!

I like this one, Kylie. Those dark colors look incredible, and very sophisticated. When I first peeked at your card, I thought the images were stamped…then I read your post. Wowzers! I almost never think to color b&w designer paper. You clever girl, you! The sequins look amazing, too. Really pretty! Hope all is well with you. Our Covid numbers are going up and up. And of course, Trump had to visit the state today…ugh! So glad this election is nearly over. Take care. xoxo

It’s so different, isn’t it?! I actually gasped with delight when I saw the SU sample. I had to CASE it immediately. I rarely think to colour B&W paper either, unless it is like a colouring book page. It looks so good though. I’ve got the card sitting up on my desk and I really do like it. You’ve really got the double whammy with Covid and the election. Thank goodness at least one of them is nearly at an end! Big hugs to you!
