Kaleidoscope of birthday colors!

Good Morning, friends!
 I'm getting a late start to my crafting/blogging today
 but I'm here! :)
I love color
The brighter, more vibrant and bold, the better! 
To me, bright colors are cheerful and happy
 and really make for a wonderful surprise in crafting
 ~ those POPS of color!

I've committed to making a birthday card every Monday in March
 with a stamp from The Project Bin!
Today, I have 2 cards to share 
and I've used the stamp set Born Yesterday.

  It's always fun to find new ways to get creative with card making.
For today's set of cards, I went on a treasure hunt through my supplies
and spotted my alcohol inks and yupo paper.

I created a variety of backgrounds in various colors
 and just let the inks do as they wished.
I am IN LOVE with how these came out!
It's a fun technique and with this creative process, 
you probably won't get the same look twice!

Here are the two completed cards using the stamped sentiments
in a creative way to showcase both the paper and the stamp. 

This is how they came out:

Card #1 

And card #2! 
 Once the background pieces are dry (I always leave mine overnight),
it's time to assemble.
I picked two backgrounds at random 
and added them to the stamped sentiments from Born Yesterday.
These are stamped with Momento Tuxedo black ink. 

These colors just make me smile!

 March is bursting with birthdays in our family - and extended family - 
so it's nice to have some on hand ...
ready to go!

You can find this stamp set that I've used in the shop

We also have an inspiration blog that you can see each week day ...
and there's a brand new stamp set about to be released that is just DARLING!
Keep watching! ♥

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
