Happy Birthday

Hi guys, I've been colouring this adorable Yay It's your Birthday Tilda with my distress re-inkers for my latest card for Swedish House Crafts,
Suha has some gorgeous Magnolia collection stamps and dies, plus lots more fabulous dies by other manufactures  too, some of which I have shown here!!
I will list all the products used at the bottom of my post!!

I made an easel style card this time using a die from my stash but then I used the Gummiapan Old Papers die for my next layer, I love the edge on this die and of course being nesting dies, the next sized die up is big enough to be used for the base of a card too, at the moment it is sold out but if you get in touch with Suha she can add it too a wish list for you,

So after colouring my Tilda up, I used a Gummiapan stitched ovals die to cut her out, then used the next size up as a border from one of the gorgeous Pion Design papers  from the  Theodore and Bella collection, I love this collection as there is some gorgeous paper designs plus some beautiful images in the collection too,

If you look closely you may be able to see I cut a slit on the top and bottom of her hand so I could wrap some twine round between the slits so she looks like she's holding the Balloon string in her hand,
I cut the balloon using a fabulous Balloon die again by Gummiapan, this fit one of those said images from the Pion papers perfectly, the balloon die also has a matching Balloon stamp, that's very handy to have in your stash too, hmmm I can feel an idea coming into my head!!! Lol

And it's much easier then trying to cut a Balloon shape by hand, lol

On the base of my easel card I finished it off with a couple of Stitched banners Die, again a Gummiapan die,  I find all these dies cut cleanly and easily first time and are a good price too, why not check them out!!
