I also used the new stamp set Let’s Party! πŸ™‚ I white heat embossed those stamps on the panel, and then blended on some Distress Inks. The word Celebrate is from the new Celebrate die set! I used my always-go-to paper strips and then die cut the word out. I think this card screams PARTY! πŸ™‚

You can check out all the fun new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

I used my Zig pens to add some color to these cuties. πŸ™‚ I also used my go-to TT die, Memo Pad Card die.

I kept this card pretty simple and let the new word die Celebrate do the work!jill_celebrate-word-die_00

I also used the Star die frame from the Super Star dies and I embossed with the Celebrate Balloon dies. OH, and I also used the Celebrate mat from Let’s Celebrate Icons dies. Such a sparkly little number, this one! I like having this card on hand to send for any celebratory occasion! πŸ™‚

This sentiment from the new Many Candles Stamp Set, is too funny! πŸ™‚ I stamped the candles from the set repeatedly and use some Stickles to add a little glitter sparkle!hawkins_jill_birthday_wm

I thought it would be fun to stamp some white on kraft. I think this card rocks for giving a guy on his birthday. πŸ™‚ I double stamped and off stamped for a fun effect. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_candles_00_wm

I also enjoy that this sentiment offsets the snarky one, right? Ha! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_candles_wm

For this last Birthday card, I used the new TT set, Let’s Party! πŸ™‚ I think this stamp set screams festive, so I went with a very loose watercolor. It’s a party! πŸ™‚

I’m used Distress Inks to color this fiesta!

Let’s Celebrate!

Happy Friday! I’m back to share another card using Paper Smooches February release!

This fun idea popped in my head one night.  πŸ™‚ I used the new Let’s Celebrate Icons dies.

I had this cute little fish sitting on my desk, and he looked like he wanted to visit a friend ❀ . I thought of these balloons as the sacks you take fish home in. Those sacks have greenery on the bottom, right? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ 

jill_lets-celebrate-icon-dies_00

I colored one fish in with Copic Markers and the others with Zig watercolor pens. I also used the Mirror Blocks to stamp the fish swimming toward her friend. This sentiment is from the new, Let’s Celebrate stamp set. The fish is from the Courteous Cuties with the dies. I super enjoy all the critters in that set. ❀

Oh, and the heart is from the Cozy Coffee die

Be sure to check out the Paper Smooches Blog!! It’s a party this month! πŸ™‚
