This month I am featuring the Humorous Birthday Innies.  And just wait and see…these can be used on the outside too!!

My first project is a clean and simple card. It uses the Birthday Borders Set to compliment the sentiment. I colored the candles with polychromos pencils. Then using the first sentence from one of the Birthday Innie phrases by masking off the bottom part, I embossed with white powder on black to stand out on my candles.

My second project is an art journal page or double page spread rather… I used the center two pages of my mini art journal and had a ton of fun.

I used the GG Celebrate digital stamp. I blew it up so that the cake part was big enough to cover my journal page (that is why I love digis!! You can make them as big or small as you want!) I colored it with copics.

I used the same sentiment that I used for my card but then followed it with the Fire department sentiment. In order to make it look like those candles were burning bright enough to need a fire department, I colored a layer of yellow ink over the entire colored image. I was afraid at first but I went for it. Then I fussy cut that cake out, added some yellow ink in the middle of my journal page to tie it together, the glued the cake on top – it kind of looks like fire doesn’t it?.

Using the Typewriter text background and Texture Tiles 1, I added a little texture to my pages. It cut the sentiment into little strips and glued it down and I think I love it!

I hope you had fun hoping along and were inspired by all you saw! NOW head over to see what Sheri has created for you!!
