MFT Birthday Candles

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon. I just finished this trio of cards that I started yesterday and I sure do like this My Favorite Things stamp set and die.  When I went to the MFT shop in Eustis last month, we used this set during our class and I had to splurge and get it.

First, I stamped the candles in a variety of colors, so I could mix and match. I stamped some white card stock with yellow and orange ink before cutting the flames.

I used the scalloped die from MFT Blueprint #20 for the background mat. This sentiment is part of the Make A Wish stamp set. My hubby said he liked the blue polka dot bow with the sequins.

I used the Wonky Stitched Frame by Avery Elle for the background.

After using two white backgrounds, I decided to add a little color. The stars grabbed my attention when I was flipping through card stock (The Stamps of Life ~ Laugh Collection). Then, that gave me the idea of using stars for the flames. The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Supersized Birthday Greetings set.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Stay Creative,
