Kathryn's Birthday Wishes

Afternoon everyone in the UK and Europe, good evening to friends in  the east and morning to all our  American friends.
Yesterday saw the start of STAMPlorations 3rd birthday celebrations. Today were are back with more fab inspiration using the STAMPlorations celebration stamp sets.
Here is mine using the brand new Kathryn's Birthday Wishes stamp set.


I used a couple of stamps from the Balloons and Banners set as well as the cute little girl and large balloon from the Kathryn's Birthday Wishes.
I first stamped the little girl on some scrap card, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. Placing Kathryn on my top panel from which I cut a balloon aperture and then embossed with a EF, I marked where I wanted the balloons to go. They were then stamped and masked to create the group on a piece of card under the aperture. The happy birthday from Balloons and Banners was stamped on a banner die cut and tucked under Kathryn. The coloured balloon panel was glued flat to the base card then the top panel was popped up on pads.

For even more fab inspiration please check out the STAMPlorations blog and join up to win some fab prizes. All Ts and Cs are there on the blog.
