Little Birthday Hello!

Birthday Hello!

This card went together quickly thanks to my Stampin' Up set "Little Hellos." I used Memento black ink with the following Copics:

Fish and Balloon Y21, Y17
Fish Bowl B00, B01, B02, CO1

The blue polka dot paper is Stampin' Up Pattern 6 x 6 paper pack. I also used grey and yellow card stock. On the yellow cardstock I used the little dot stamp from the SU "Delight in Life" stamp set with aqua and blue ink and then I edged it with the SU scalloped edge punch. Love Tim Holtz Tissue Tape (Nostalgic) so I added a strip of that and then topped it off with some Twinery Twine which is becoming a new favorite of mine.

To finish it off I added a Prima E line polka dot flower and a polka dot glazed brad from BG Parisiennes. Loved the coordination of the dots and I couldn't believe I had all this on hand... I love when that happens.

My first Stamping Bella card with my new Ketto stamp. These stamps are made in Quebec, Canada, and I absolutely love them and the detail they have. I made this card for my niece who is studying dance at Ball State. She lives to dance so I thought it was only appropriate for this special birthday card for her.

Archiver's recently started carrying these stamps. I was a little surprised because I didn't realize they weren't cling stamps when I purchased them, but I solved the problem. I used a little temporary adhesive on the back of the stamp, placed it on the mounting block and stamped away.

I used my Copics and of course I had to add some bling. It was very fun.
Hope you like it.
