Rainbow Striped Birthday Card

Happy Friday! :o)

Today I want to share with you  a birthday card I made for my niece Mia, my cousins daughter, who turned 6 this week. 

I've played again with a CAS(E) this Sketch #160 and made this CAS (clean and simple), Rainbow Striped Birthday Card.


This is my 3rd take on the sketch. You can find my first take on this sketch here and second here.

Here is the CAS(E) this Sketch #160.

How I made the card...

I cut a panel from watercolor paper. I could go with one layer card because watercolor paper I used is thick enough, but I want to be very rational with this one and save on it because it was quite expensive.

I stamped a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Birthday Wishes' stamp set on the panel and drew thick lines in watercolor technique using Distress Inks, a lot of water and flat brush, following a Rainbow color pattern. After drying, I drew thinner lines using Distress Inks, a bit of water and rounded brush.

When I was satisfied with color of stripes, I dried the panel and glued it on a top folded white card base. I highlighted the sentiment with a white gel pen and coated thin lines with Clear Wink of Stella and my card was finished. :o)

    Hand Lettering #5: Personalized Birthday Magnets

    Hello everyone!!! :o)

    Today I want to share with you two hand lettered personalized birthday magnets I made.


    First I made yellow one for my friend Danijela.



    When my boyfriend saw it, he asked for a same magnet, but in blue, for his friend. :o)



    How I made magnets...

    I cut 2" diameter circle bases from a Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

    I stamped adorable Pisces from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set on circle bases, hand lettered word Pisces in block letter handwriting style and friends' birthdays with Roman numerals. I wrote them on different days, but I went with same lettering style on both so I'm sharing them together. :o)



    I prepared various hand lettered samples during my personal challenge Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2017 to color during a 7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker. These two also.

    I colored both circles in watercolor technique, using Distress Inks, and left them dry on air.

    A friend gave me bunch of magnet sheets last year to make my own magnets. I cut magnet circles with large scissors and glued them together with colored circles with universal UHU glue. I pressed magnets with a 32 cm x 32 cm, 1 cm thick glass plate and left them pressed for an hour. At this point my magnets were finished.

    I needed that something something as a final touch on the yellow one. I coated yellow Pisces with Clear Wink of Stella. Love the shimmer and my friend too!!! :o)


    Dimensions: d = 51 mm (d = 2")

    • Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set
