BLOW OUT ALL THE CANDLES!!!!!



Hello everyone: I'm a little late posting this card, I've been doing some SERIOUS rearranging of my craft room, purging some papers, embellishments, stickers, glitter, ribbon, yarn and other goodies to donate them to my granddaughter Anastasia's Art Club in school, the kids are in dyer need of supplies, I'm also going to go get them some glue, tape and coloring pencils and other stuff, for their art projects.
But anywho, here is this card that I'm linking to the Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" challenge and the Stamp Ink Paper "Card Maker's Choice" challenge (we're suppose to use our favorite stamps and papers but, in my case, all of my stamps are my favorites, I chose this one for the Seize the Birthday challenge), and the LiveLoveCards Masculine Challenge, I figured this card could go either way but the fact that it looks like this chickens are all "boys" made me take a chance and submit it to this challenge.


Ok, just the expression of concern on some of this chicken's faces makes me smile but then, add the gazillion candles, this cake looks like it could be mine, hmm.. I think I can count almost 65 candles, sheeesh!! I kept it pretty simple, (ah...it's not CAS at all, ok? just simple without the clean part), I used colors that kind of match the chicken's crests and.....what are those things under their beaks called? Anyway, just stamped t his Penny Black image called "Best of Luck"  onto a panel of Canson water color paper and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers, I sponged a bit of Old Olive for the grass and a litle of Broken China distress ink for the sky, added 4 Candy Dots and that was it. Here is a picture of the finish inside.


Here are the banners that inspired this card.

  1. Hi Maria! What a fun card! I absolutely love it! I need to check out that Penny Black stamp set...I just love their images!

    Good luck on the craft purge! I am doing the same as well as we are moving soon (a military family always on the move!). Thank you for sharing this card, it really brought a smile to my face :)

  2. Thank you for visiting, I apologize for not including the name of this stamp but now I went back and fixed for you. I bought this stamp a long time ago, you can probably get it at Ebay but I bought it at Amazon. The link is up under the picture of the card, the stamp's name is "Best of Luck" and it looks like this chickens are totally ready in case of a fire, LOL!
    Good luck with your own craft purge, it's amazing how much stuff we accumulate over the years, I saved the best of pattern papers and stamps and embellishments, gifts from friends and things like that.
    I hope you move where you can still be able to make your cards, with a craft store near by.
    Big Hugs.

  6. This is so funny! It reminds me of my mom's 78th birthday cake, which literally set off the smoke alarm! LOL Thankfully, no damage done--except for a burned cake. Love the colors you used in this, & thanks for the chuckle! ~ Andrea
