Happy BIG birthday..

Hello everyone,

and happy Wednesday to you. Time for another challenge over at the Stampotique blog. Today's host is the lovely Kathi and here's what she said :

'21, 25, 50, 60th Birthday or Anniversary -- It's time to celebrate! Let's see a project that celebrates those sometimes scary milestones of life!'

So, I made this card: 

I figured, if it is scary you don't want a number on there, lol... 

I started with a blank card panel on which I stamped the presents. I also stamped them on white card stock and coloured them with my trusty Copic Markers. I then cut the image out. 
Next I coloured the panel with Distress Inks and a blending tool using yellows and oranges. I dripped some water over it, dried it and then dripped some white ink to make the spots a little more obvious. I also did some background stamping and a little doodling around the edge. I then glued the coloured presents on top of the stamped ones on the panel. 
Lastly I stamped the sentiment, cut it out, doodled around the edges and adhered it to the panel. 

I used the following stamps:

I hope you will play along with us this week. You never know, you might win one of two $30 vouchers at the end of the month. Just remember only one entry per person per challenge and NO digi's. 

Thank you so much for stopping by ! 


  1. Hi Corrie!
    Seems to me that if I received such fun card for a milestone with no number written or adhered onto it, I would be even more pleased to receive it of course hahaha!!!
    So a great card, brilliant as usual! Bises! ~Coco

    I love the sentiment because isn't it what we all say about certain birthday milestones!
    Brilliantly bold background. I so love how the way you expertly work with colour. I have much to learn!

  5. Love this Corrie, great way to celebrate the 'big' birthdays without the dreaded number xx

  6. Love your card and its rich bold colours. x

  7. What a fabulous pile of presents - love the golden text and bubbles in the background too. I can't believe I wasn't following you already... that would explain why I keep missing things!! Have signed up now (finally!).
