Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far!

Today is Seize the Birthday Thursday! My team mate Lindsey chose our new Topping and she wants us to create a scene 🙂 ! As always you may enter any birthday themed projects into our gallery, if you don’t want to take the Toppings option!


I created a scene using some cute Hedgehogs from HedgeHUGS stamp set (30-794) from Love & Happiness Release by Penny Black.


I stamped the hedgies on Bristol smooth paper in black and colored them using Karin brush markers. I fussy cut them and set them aside.


To create the background I started off by watercoloring a Canson Mix Media panel in violet, light blue and green. After the panel was dry I ink blended some clouds in Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar and Salty Ocean DIs. I splattered white ink all over the panel and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. The sentiment from Dream.Love Sentiments set (30-786) was white heat embossed on the background panel.


I cut the grass using the Garden Edgers die (51-549) from some white cardstock and ink blended them in green using Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover DIs. I stamped the “happy birthday” sentiment from Wishes set (30-103) on the die cut grass piece and foam mounted the grass and the hedgehogs on the card.


Now It’s your turn to play along! Please stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from our Surprise Party Guest, Carol Mayne from Just Me: C and my talented team mates!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

Have a great day!
