How come it is already August???? Who is sitting on the fast forward button? Would this person please get up so that time doesn't fly by so fast!
Recently I noticed that my favorite sentiment stamp set had disappeared! I hate loosing things! But especially this set! It is small but I like the font and think it's very versatile! Of course it's discontinued and impossible to find anymore online. I looked and I looked and was very afraid that it had fallen into the trash can a while ago since it is not very big!
Last weekend I found it hiding underneath some ink pads! I am so happy! And will be extra careful with it from now on! In case you want to know, the Happy Birthday on today's card is from that set. It's by Hero Arts and is called "Classic Sentiments".
To make the card, I mixed some Liquitex Heavy Gloss Gel with Marvy Ink pads and applied it over a stencil. I don't know why I don't use my stencils more often - it's so fun to play with them! Then I white embossed some stripes (an unmounted stamp I had for a long time and had never used) on grey, die cut the numbers, die cut them again out of foam and glued everything together. Some washi tape on a black strip of paper and there it is!
In the close up you can see the shine and texture of the gel better!
Stamp: Hero Arts (sentiment), DRS Design (stripes on the numbers)
Dies: Memory Box (numbers)
Other: TCW (stencil), Liquitex Heavy Gloss Gel
ETA: This card won "Honorable Mention" at the Male Room!
Inkspirational #88 "Photo Inspiration"
I was inspired by the turquoise sea and the shape of the swing. Oh, I so want to be there...
