Voila’ Birthday

Good Morning and welcome to another Saturday of fun with Stamping 411. As you may or may not know I am one of the “Operators” over there. I’m joined by a great group of Gals that make this so fun. So why don’t you hope on over and play along with us.

Here is the sketch this week:

….and here is my interpretation: ( I cheated a bit on placement)

Sketch 128

I have showcased the “Voila “ Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! and made it into a Birthday Card. I used some of the Night and Day Designer Series Paper to stamp the Chef’s jacket and hat with. Then I did a little paper piecing. So very little coloring here. I sponged the walls with so Saffron as it seemed appropriate. I then felt like this little guy needed a floor and why not a Black and White Tile floor to match the theme of the card. I just used my ruler and marked off block with my black Marker and colored some in. that’s it.

Dimesnions for the card are:

Real Red Card Base: 5 1/2” x 8 !/2 “

Black Mat: 4 3/4 x 3 1/2”

White Image Piece: 3 3/8” x 4 5/8”

The Tray was colored in with my Zig Painty and the Dome was stamped on some Brushed Silver and cut our.

The little Happy Birthday was stamped on white that is 1 3/8 x 1 3/8 and I used marker on the edges to give it a matted look.

I so appreciate you stopping by and I hope you’ll visit again soon.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

Lee, this is adorable - I love his houndstooth jacket and that tile floor is just fab!
I've owned this stamp set for over a year and have never used it - I just might need to break it out now!
