Freaky Birthday Greetings with
Unscripted Sketches #205

Happy Wednesday! How about another fun stamped card using Viva Las VegaStamps! and Unscripted Sketches #205??? This card is just so fun and festive! I totally fell in love with this stamp and made me laugh out loud.

This card began with Viva Las VegaStamps! "Alligator Present" #9129. It has a blank little tag in the image and the "Don't Freak Me Out" #18327 fit perfectly in it's place. I stamped both in black on white cardstock painted yellow using Mustard Seed Ranger Distress Ink and a brayer; then hand colored image with my markers and waterbrush. I added some shimmery details and polka dots with my Gelly Roll Stardust pen. I cropped to an oval shape and matted with a contrasting blue cardstock. The border is the "Happy Happy Birthday" #10479 stamped about 10 times to create a pattern stripe using Clearsnap Colorbox Khaki Green Dye ink.

**TIP FOR THE DAY** Try out different themed stamps for different occasions. Play around and have fun! Cut your images apart to use just a section, or stamp a repeating pattern. This gives you endless possibilities with your stash of rubber stamps.

A fun cards using just a few stamps!


Supplies used: STAMPS - "Alligator Present" #9129, "Don't Freak Me Out" #18327, and "Hippo with Party Hat" #1454. Other supplies: varied solid color cardstocks; Staz-On Black ink; Miracle Tape; photo corners; Ranger Distress Markers; Mustard Seed Ranger Distress Inks; Clearsnap Colorbox Khaki Green Dye Ink; Gelly Stardust Pen and a water brush.
