Rainbow candles for a Happy Birthday!

Hi there!

I know… three posts in a row? 😉 crazy times, hehehe 😉

Today I want to share a card I made for a dear friend of mine…

Shimmer and Shine - Rainbow candles happy birthday - Stampin'up, Big News, star mask, Project Life cards and labels framelits

I wanted it to be cheerful because he’s truly an inspiring person. Happy birthday, Jimmy 🙂

The candles are from the Big News stamp set, stamped in rainbow colours. They’ve been mounted with foam tape and the “flame” has received a coating of Wink of Stella. The white panel is die cut with the Project Life framelit. The card base is made with a Basic Grey cardstock and I used the star mask to draw the little stars with a gel pen.

I seem to have an addition with pink tones at the moment (see my last card!)… I’m longing for Spring 🙂

Here is a quick but very effective card I made with two of my favourite products of the Spring Catalogue : the Butterfly Thinlit Die and the Something Lacy background stamp.

Shimmer and Shine - Congratulations. #StampinUp, #SomethingLacy, #ButterflyThinlitDie, #GrandesNouvelles


I stamped the Something Lacy stamp with Versamark on vellum, then added white embossing powder and heat-set it. The card base and the butterfly are both cut from a Pink Pirouette cardstock. The sentiment is from Grandes Nouvelles, it has been stamped with silver ink on Whisper White cardstock and hand-cut to make a fishtail banner. I added a pearl for an elegant finishing touch.

Here is a close-up to this wonderful butterfly… isn’t it pretty?
