Have a Cool Birthday

Yes, it's the first day of fall and yes,  I'm sharing a super summery design.  This one was inspired by the celebration theme of the first Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge.

Have a Cool Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Concord & 9th
The popsicles are from Concord and 9th's Sweet and Cool stamp set.  They are made from watercolored paper coated with some clear glitter from a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.  The glittery coating looks kind of ice crystal-like IRL!

I arranged the popsicle pair on a white panel, using foam tape to adhere the top one.  The set's "have a cool birthday" sentiment was stamped next to the popsicles in black ink.  I added a bunch of different sized clear sequins around the popsicles. The finished panel was adhered to a pale yellow card base that coordinates nicely with all of the colors in the popsicles.

Materials Used:
Sweet and Cool stamp set, Sweet and Cool dies (Concord and 9th); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Lemon Chiffon cardstock (My Favorite Things); Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); watercolors (Michaels); sparkling clear sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); foam tape


  1. Lori, this is fantastic! I love these colorful popsicles and the addition of the "icy" glitter is brilliant. Thanks so much for joining us for our Where Creativity Meets C9 Celebration Challenge.

  2. Thanks for convincing me this stamp set needs to be on my wish list ;)
