I didn’t have much time to craft last night but I really fancied doing some colouring. Luckily the My Favorite Things Birth-Yay stamp set is perfect for this. There’s one image (as you can see on my finished card) that contains four animals standing on top of each other. That means there’s no need for masking, no need for fussy stamping, and you can just stamp and go. In the end I turned my coloured image into a clean and simple birthday card. I really enjoyed making this one, and will likely make more in the same style in the future.

Making the Card
I didn’t need many supplies for this card, so making it was super easy. First I used the largest Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die to cut a rectangle out of a purple polka dot piece of paper from the Time for Tea Designs Paper Pad. I then used the second largest stitched rectangle die to cut out a piece of Crafter’s Companion stamping card. I then stamped the image from the My Favorite Things Birth-Yay set onto it in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and added a sentiment to the top. I tried a Lawn Fawn ink pad for the first time in doing this, and absolutely love the colour!
Next, I coloured in my stamp using Copic markers. This was super relaxing and I really enjoyed doing it.
To finish, I cut a piece of Heffy Doodle Grape Soda Cardstock in half and made a score line down the middle to make my card. I stuck both rectangles to the front, added the ‘Let’s Celebrate You’ sentiment to the inside, and the ‘Just For You’ stamp from the Lawn Fawn set to the back.
All in all, I think this card took me about 90 minutes and I love the end result. Sometimes, less is more.
