Today May has THREE cards for you today (since it's our 3rd birthday!) using our new Happiest Birthday stamp set!
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 

It's May here sharing three different ways to use the brand new Happiest Birthday stamp set. I created three cards to celebrate the Neat and Tangled 3rd birthday, and here are what I came up with: 


I used the party hat from the set to make a corn ice cream for my first card. With the help of circles from the Dala Horse stamp set, I was able to stack my ice cream scoops. All the images were colored with Copic markers.


For the second card, I created a little scene with a happy bear tossing confetti in to the sky. Isn't he look so adorable? :)



My bear is having fun writing words in the sky with a firecracker stick. :) FYI, I cut out my stamps(confetti+sentiment) with scissors to create a curved line so that it looked like flowing light when stamping.

I made a video showing how I created my first card, watch it below!


You can watch the video here on the blog, or in HD HERE on YouTube. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE!

That's all I have today. Hope you enjoyed seeing my birthday cards!

  122. Hi May ~ Happiest Birthday is an adorable multi-use set of stamps! The party hat ice cream cone is clever and out of the box (loved the video too) in the first card. The bear tossing confetti in the air in the 2nd card is so charming and I love the way you used the sparkler to make the firework effect on the 3rd card. It was great to get a reminder that we can cut the words apart on the sentiment stamps and not ruin the stamp itself. As always, the video is definitely a bonus (I'm a lefty also!!). Thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us. You truly are aMAYzing!!
