Gumball Birthday

Happy Sunday everyone! We're sitting around in our jammies just having a nice, relaxing day. I made purple Play-Do for the girls so we've had fun playing Diary Queen and dentist with those little play sets that make the fun shapes.

For today's card, I used Karen Lockhart's new Gumball Machine stamp. Can you remember the days when you'd beg your mom for a quarter so you could get a giant gumball or some junky toy? Some of my finest jewelry as a child came from gumball machines.

I loved getting back to some coloring so I used various shades of Copic Sketch markers for the gumballs and some warm greys for the gumball machine. I put a thick coating of Ranger Glossy Accents over the glass portion of the gumballs and let it dry. It's amazing how much this adds to images that have a shiny look to them.
I cut out my image using Spellbinder's Labels die and then mounted it on a Spellbinder's Classic Scalloped Rectangle die. I finished off the corners with some shiny sequins. For the Papertrey birthday sentiment, I used a small label cut from the Spellbinders Labels 1 die set. These labels are hot right now so this is a good die set to add to your collection. The glittered background papers are all from My Mind's Eye(purchased at my local scrapbook store). Ribbon and base card colors are Papertrey Sweet Blush. Buttons are from Archivers.
I finished the inside of the card off with another PTI birthday sentiment and some punched circles from the patterned paper scraps. The circle shapes help continue the theme of the round gumballs. A playful little birthday card to add to my collection.


What's coming up: More Lockhart creations, NEW Just Rite stamps, Papertrey Anniversary Set and my Easter Inspiration Station.

Sweeeeeet! I love your addition of glossy accents to the gumball machine. You are right, that really makes a stamped image look like real candy.
