So, It’s this guys birthday today! I just LOVE this picture of Chris…. it truly captures just how much fun he is, how he can let loose. This is one of the reasons why I love being in a relationship with him….. because 99% of the time we are having a TON of fun!! (that other 1% is the adulting part of life that is never fun LOL)
So wish Chris a HAPPY HAPPY birthday! No one ever believes me when I tell them how old he is because he doesn’t let his age define him and I look up to that!
For his birthday we will be spending time on the beach, I’m sure some yummy oysters will be eaten as well.
I created this birthday card for him using Tim Holtz’s Hipster stamps along with the Sizzix Framelit’s Dies. They came out with a die for each hipster, and I just LOVE how it helps build dimension on your projects! The dies cut out the tiny glasses, his beak, tie and head 🙂 The balloons and party hat are from the Crazy Things Stamp Set, which also has coordinating dies.
I watercolored all of the images with Distress Oxide inkpads. I recently got the 12 new colors and I just HAD to play with the bright palette! I used Black Soot on the background and splattered some of the other bright colors (Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron and Fossilized Amber).
For the card base I stamped the newsprint from Tim Holtz’s Newsprint & Type background stamps in Black Soot Distress Oxide. I LOVE the detail you get when you stamp with these ink pads!!
A lot of foam tape to assemble the card, tons of dimension on here and then I added a bit of small talk stickers from the occasion set.
I am entering this into Tim Holtz/Sizzix’s “Get Hip For Summer” Giveaway! You can find all the details on Tim’s blog here and join along! I think Chris would look great in those Sizzix hipster sunglasses 😉
