Happy Birthday TSB!


I'm so excited to share with you today that one of my most favorite companies is celebrating a birthday!  That's right The Stamping Boutique is turning 2 years old this month and I am so honored to have been with Tracey Malnofski on this journey since she opened her store! If you had not had the opportunity to work with Tracey then you are missing out, but you still have a chance at TSB is having a DT call.  Check out all the deets of the DT call here!

Now to start off the "Birthday Celebration" which will run for entire month of September, a challenge was issued today by myself to create a birthday project.  This can be anything your little heart desires and each day of the month one person will be chosen to pick a FREE image from the store- yes you heard me right, there will be 30 winners this month!!!

I created this card for the challenge and chose to work with the image called "little girl with a balloon", which is colored with copics.  I decided to follow the sketch over at Cardabilities, papers are from CTMH.  I followed the tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers to create the fun fan fold flower (say that 3 times fast, lol). This was my first attempt at this type of flower, but I know there are more in my future.


Now what are you waiting for head over and enter the challenge here with you birthday projects.  You do not have to use a TSB image and you can enter as many times as you want!

I am entering this card in following challenges:

Cardabilities- sketch
Desert Island Crafters- used 5, 6, & 8
4 Crafty Chicks- celebrate
Art Impressions- lots of dots
Crafty Purple Frog-birthdays
Cute Card Thursday- punch (used border punch to create flower)
Moving Along With the Times- handmade flowers
Paper Play- make your own flowers
