StampNation Birthday Bash

Welcome to Day #3 of StampNation‘s 4th Birthday Bash!  Today’s challenge is to make a “Card for a Kid”!  FUN!

Oh, how I love this card…let me count the ways…

In this video, we’ll make a Kids’ Birthday Card with Simon Says Stamp!

Stenciling– I first used the stencil as a stamp to add a gorgeous sparkle to the background.

Rainbow colors with Distress Ink.  Nuff said.  Who doesn’t love that?

Farm Animals – what kid wouldn’t smile at these?  Who am I kidding?  What ADULT wouldn’t smile at these?

Chalkboard Technique – this trend has some serious sticking power!  It’s been popular for a loooong time.  I’ve been at CHA this year checking out new trends and products coming out in the crafting industry and there is still a bunch of chalkboard stuff!

This darling set by Simon Says Stamp is perfect for this technique…especially if you don’t want to COLOR!  🙂

Wooden Embellishments – this is another trend that has been around for a while and I love it!  I haven’t used wooden embellishments a ton, but I think I need to use them more.
