Sharing a birthday card.......Shhhhh, it's a secret!

Let's see if I can do this so you can click on the pictures and get a larger view. This card is for my granddaughter Gabrielle who is turning 7. You will notice that not all of the stamps or supplies used are from Stampin Up. The more I use the clear acrylic stamps I have been collecting, the more discouraged I am with them and the more I'm becoming one of the "Rubber is the only way to go" people. I have never, ever had a rubber stamp break on me. I have some OLD stamps since I have been stamping/crafting forever. However, some of the newer acrylic stamps are breaking while taking them off the storage sheet for their first use!! Others are breaking after being used allot in one day. I hope to have so many Stampin Up stamps in the near future that I don't find myself reaching for the acrylic stamps anymore. Having said all of that, here is the card I made. Some other materials used are.......puff paint, gelly roll glitter pen, sakura glaze pens. The people and pets are from the Stampin Up- All in the Family stamp set. So cute!!! Post a comment, tell me what you think!! I'd love to hear from you all.

Love how the puff paint creates dimension!
