Inkadinkado Humorous birthday card

Yay, it's time for another challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge, and this time we are hoping to bring a smile to your face.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.


I pulled out a very old stamp set from my stash and came up with this CAS design for my friend who loves tortoises.

1) Die cut two of the Stitches Arch Stax dies from My Favorite Things out of white card.

2) Stamp the tortoise and greeting from the Inkadinkado Humorous Birthday stamp set in permanent black ink onto the smaller arch.

3) Once it is dry, colour the tortoise with Zig watercolour brush pens and add a shadow underneath.

4) Emboss the arch with the Papertrey Ink Canvas Impression Plate.

5) Watercolour the edges of the larger arch with the same blue colour used on the tortoise and use it as a mat.

6) Finish off by attaching the arches to the base card and stamp Happy Birthday from the Happy Little Stampers Doodled Flowers stamp set - I love that font!

Why not click over to the HLS blog to see what the team have to show you, and then create a card to bring a smile to someone who needs one.

I'd like to play at a couple of great challenges that have big birthday celebrations going on

AAA cards #116 - 4th-year birthday bash

Casual Fridays Challenge #200 - 8th-year birthday celebration

Creative Moments Challenge #144 - anything goes with an animal

HOw cute! Love this sweet little turtle, and the half-circle presentation of his little self was just the perfect die to show him off. The sky blue mat is a nice spot of color to draw the eye into the frame. Somebody is going to smile very big when they open this card and read the sentiment. TFS & Hugs (and thanks for your recent visit and sweet comment too!)

Love love love! This card makes me smile. Both colors and layout look great. I love the colorful frame of the bow in the color correlating with the colors of the turtle. I really love this card :-)
