A little known fact about me is that I spent 13 years being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I rarely blogged my Stampin' Up! creations in the last many years due to SU! policy--and frankly, the difficulty I had in trying to understand the rules over blogging--mostly because I was representing other companies by showcasing their stamp designs. I was really more of a hobbiest and used most of my SU! purchases in the process of writing tutorials or for various paper crafting projects. Now, that I am no longer a demo (something I am often sad about), I have challenged myself to get out my long hoarded stamps and make something!
This is a card I made for a work friend. He's a rocker! LOL!! Anyhow, the guitar guy and the background images are called Extreme Elements and Extreme Guitar...so extreme! I started by creating a colorful background using distress oxide inks...these things are addicting! I love the different texture affects you can achieve.
To add the Happy Birthday, I used the current set, Labeler Alphabet. To find a SU! demo who can order that for you, head on over to the Stampin' Up! website!
TTFN. Be Awesome! Jane
