Today is a very special day because my nephew Skylar turns 6 today! I absolutely adore this little guy and can't believe he's turning into such a big boy.
To celebrate his birthday I started out making one card and ended up with one small banner and card.
For the card, I found this puzzle piece in my stash that has been sitting around for years. It was white and plain so to add some color I used Distress Inks with a blending tool.
I then stamped some fun robot images with the new Maya Road robot stamps.
Now that I am finished I will photocopy in color his puzzle then break up the pieces and mail it all to him.
Now I couldn't stop here because I had to make Skylar something with the Maya Road cupcake chipboard piece. If you like Maya Road cupcakes, snowflakes and the coffee mug you will want to get a Puffy Velvet Fabric Marker. I picked mine up at a local rubber stamp shop.It can create faux frosting, snow, and foam and it adds so much dimension to your projects. Once you apply it, heat set it with a heat gun and watch it rise. I am addicted to it! I also used the word "party" from the cupcake chipboard set and the new orange velvet scalloped ric rac. Here's the birthday banner I made for Skylar.
Have a great day!
