Seize the Birthday: Monster Star Stencil..


Happy Friday!

As promised today I am playing along with Seize the Birthday again - this time with the topping -

I LOVE using stencils on my cards and I am a big fan of the Tim Holtz layering stencils.

I have nearly all of the mini ones, so handy and they come in sets of 3 which I think is VFM.

For this card I made a fun stenciled background using the star shifter stencil - these stencils are great if you want to use multiple colours in different positions because the stencil actually has a star-filled in, so you can place it over the colour you have already done. Sounds complicated - honestly, it isn't, watch the master Tim Holtz demonstrate in this video.

I knew I wanted to colour my fave Monster in orange and green, so I used those colours to create my background.

The Monster is by My Cute Stamps, sadly no longer on sale and he was gifted to me by a friend. I coloured him using Copic markers AND my new love Sakura glitter gel pens - SO much sparkle.

I added a die-cut speech bubble so that I could add the sentiment and the little numbers, as this is a 1st birthday card.

I love how it turned out.

Have a great weekend, I am off to dinner tonight with some friends I haven't seen in forever.
