Happy Birthday Kim - Surprise Linky Party!


As you may have guessed, I am hosting a surpirse birthday party here on my blog. 

We have a wonderful and dear friend that is celebrating her birthday today -

Kim Heggins of Cupcakes, Cards and Kim - isn't she beautiful!!!

Welcome

Kim is on my design team at Happy Little Stampers. She currently creates for my CAS and CASE teams. Kim is a wonderful team player and is so enthusiastic. She is also on a number of other design teams (The Challenge, 12 Kits of Holidays, Simply Create Too, ColourQ) - one busy bee! 

I really wanted her birthday to be special for her this year and bring all of us crafty friends together and show her how much we love her.


Here is my card for Kim -



I decided to try colouring on black cardstock. I LOVE how it turned out. I embossed the first flower and then covered it with a mask and stamped the second flower. I kept doing this until I was happy with my design. I also embossed the sentiment.

I simply coloured the flowers and leaves with pencils.

I had so much fun making this card that I even created a second card and video tutorial for you to try it out yourself!



I have used the new set from Happy Little Stampers called 'Doodled Flowers'.

Doodled Flowers - PREORDER


Below you will find the linky so you can join in. I will have it open for 2 weeks giving you plenty of time to wish Kim a Happy Birthday in your own way and to also spread the word. Please link back to this post so others may join in.

  15. I've done the pencil on black but colored it white first. Now I see I didn't have to do that. Your cards are so striking, Kylie, and thanks for throwing the party for Kim. I'm so far behind but I plan to get a card in before the deadline.

  17. Your birthday card is amazing. Thanks a lot for sharing these photos. My sister’s birthday is about to come and need some ideas for her birthday. I want to host this party at one of indoor venues in NYC and hopefully will arrange things perfectly.
