January Birthdays


Hi everyone!
I have lots of birthday cards to send out this month.  I had a blast making these the other day with the help of my Misti for stamping the sentiment in the same spot on each card.  I made 8 of the same design, just changed up the colors on a few of them.  Here is another awesome color combo that my friend Catherine shared on her FB page and on SN.  I knew I had to try it out.  LOVE!!!!


I masked off a strip using post-it tape, sponged the colors, flicked on some water to get the water drops and lastly flicked on some black soot ink for the black spots.  I stamped the snowflakes in the coordinating Distress ink colors.

And one last one.


I am adding these over at Time Out Challenge: Theme is birthday with an optional twist of sponging.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Bring on the Snowflakes (SOA Holiday Magic Collection), Birthday Classics: January (PTI)
Accessories:  Rhinestones

  8. What amazing sponging you have here on these beautiful cards Kristie - love them. Can't help thinking that the sentiment would not be appropriate here in the Antipodes :-)
