Birthday Friends

I’m sure some of you are old enough to remember this nostalgic look.  I remember wearing dresses like this in grade school.  Do you?  This new suite of products is just adorable.  It reminds me of my grandmother’s kitchen.  

I was inspired by a card by Debi Meissner’s card.  You can see her card and her blog here. I love her style and  how she made the window shopping look. I changed mine up a bit, mostly because I couldn’t figure out how she had her chef facing the other direction.  Gonna have to look up that technique.


Again, today, I used the blender pen for rich color and shading.  I also pulled out the brick mask from Party Pattern masks sold as a companion product with the embossing paste but just as handy with straight ink.  My card base is actually Thick Whisper White with cherry cobbler bricks.  It was a still too stark so I softened the whole thing with Sahara Sand. I added a bit to the striped awning as well.

I used a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper cut at 1/4 inch thick for the window frame.  The Stampin Trimmer works great for cutting inside.

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Stamping
