Surprise Birthday Blog Hop for Korin!!


If you came for RI What If? Wednesday Sketch post, just scroll down to the next post :) Thank you xoxo



Hello everyone~

It is a day early with a very special birthday surprise....tomorrow is my friend and the owner of Sweet ‘N Sassy Stamps, Korin Sutherland's birthday! A group of her friends are getting together today for a fun early birthday party, since tomorrow is the fantastic April Release Blog Hop for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and we didn't want to take the spotlight from that. After all, Korin deserves her OWN day in the spotlight! So please join us as we celebrate her birthday a little early!


Happy Birthday Korin!!

Wishing your special day is as fabulous as you!!




I created her birthday card with one of March Release, Rhubarb’s Birthday Wishes set. Since I am in the Digi DT, I use their digi stamps most of the time but I equally love their clear stamps too! Plus, I cannot make this cute Rhubarb sit in my box, can I? ;)

I also want to mention that this card was used the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS152).

I colored the image with Copic markers and a few of the parts were layered for the dimension.The image was cut out with SB Nestabilities Squares and the mat was sponged with Distress Ink. Then it was layered on the Lacey Squares mat. The sentiment was stamped on the pennant that was cut with SB Nested Pennants. The card was designed with the cardstock and the Echo Park Dots & Stripes Candy Shoppe 6x6 paper. The white background was dry embossed with SU Sizzix Textured Impressions Stripes. The polka dots circle mats were cut with SB Nestablities Circles. To finish off, the ribbons were attached on the two corners and the rhinestones were embellished.



Below is the whole birthday party train....prepare yourself for some fantastic cupcakes and ice cream from these talented ladies!!
