Crafter's Companion's is turning five and we are having a birthday blog hop to celebrate it in style!
The blog hop starts on August 6th and ends midnight Pacific standard time on August 10th. Every design team member will be giving away a Popcorn the Bear Party Time stamp set to one lucky commenter so be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs to increase your odds of winning. (Must also be a follower of the Crafter's Companion Information blog, this blog, and a U.S. resident).
Each design team member will also have one "secret" letter that will spell out a "secret" phrase. When you have all the letters for the phrase, email the phrase to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win $100 GIFT CERTIFICATE!
I decided to go big with my project, and made a huge birthday cake card that measures 6 1/2 inches by 11 inches! I used the Cricut Cartridge Birthday bash for the card base.
I used Crafter's Companion gorgeous pearlescent card stock, as well as one of my favorite Humphrey the Elephant Stamps, Auld Lang Syne. I love how versatile this stamp is. You can use it for any kind of celebration, parties, New Year's Eve, birthdays, congratulations, or anniversary.
To color my stamped image, I used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The small nib on the pens make it easy to control where your ink is going and blend the colors beautifully, unlike water-based markers. At about $2.00 a marker they are also one of the most reasonable priced alcohol markers I've found.
