a happy twinkie birthday

Twinkie is one of those precious little Stampotique stamps that make me so happy.  His joy is infectious.  I made this birthday card for one of Alex's friends at school.

The brick wall was embossed on gold mirror paper and coloured in with permanent markers.  Tim's crazy bird accessory presents were also stamped, cut and coloured in using gold mirror paper.

The background was torn from an old book now used for .. well, my crafting amusement and eventually a memory book (whenever I get around to it).

Valentine's day is just around the corner and I get to share my love with a whole craft room of very talented ladies.  Here is the card that I put together for my stamp club Valentine swap:

As you might have guessed, for those who know me, there are a few layers involved in this little 5x4.
Layer one: Tim's tissue paper torn and randomly glued onto grey cardstock
Layer two: acrylic paint through heart stencil
Layer three: washi tape
Layer four: die-cut heart
Layer five: die-cut love
All mounted on my cheat: a pre-fab ombre card purchased at Michaels.
