QF Happy Birthday and CC3C


The Happy Birthday sentiment on this card is from Quietfire Design's new set of Happy Birthday's.  Lots of choices for just the right Happy Birthday and it is available both unmounted and mounted on cling... woohoo!!!!

Linda Letbetter has started a new round of challenges working through Tim Holtz's newest book Compendium of Curiosities 3.  All the details for the challenges can be found HERE.  There are also prizes being given with each challenge and this first challenge is being sponsored by Inspiration Emporium.  Our first challenge is Paint Marbling found on page 43 of the book.  I've done that technique on a #8 manila tag using paint colors shaded lilac, evergreen bough, and picket fence.  Over this I've stamped Wendy Vecchi's vintage doily background with picket fence paint.  Across the top of the tag I've stenciled using a leaf from Wendy's From The Garden stencil and her Archival Ink leaf green.  The edges of the tag have Distress Paint tarnished brass.  The flower is made using Wendy's Art Parts (Just Flowers set and Lots of Leaves set) - painted with Distress paint and stamped with Wendy backgrounds using Archival Ink.  The center flower is a Finnabair vintage trinket.  The brad is colored by heating and adding Adirondack embossing powder.  For Happy Birthday I die cut Tim's tattered banners from manila card, chose one to use, painted it, stamped the sentiment with Archival Ink jet black, added tarnished brass to the edges, and folded in the ends.  The tag is adhered to a folded white card and I trimmed the top corners to match the tag.

Excellent! Your use of Art Parts on this tag is brilliant, nicely set off by the Paint Marbled background. Good work!

I love watching the UK TV Show "Masterchef - the Professinals". It shows what professonal Chefs tackle challenges with the Tasks and materials and techniques given.
Baby, there should have been a "Masterstampers- the professionals". You are it.
