As is probably the case for most of you, I need birthday cards to send to family and friends more than any other type of card.  Here’s one that I made using a couple of darling lamp images from Unity’s “Shine On” stamp set.

Paper piecing is so much fun and these lamp shades were the perfect subjects for it.  And as usual, a marker was used around the edges of the designer papers to help define and pop the shapes of the cut out lamp shades.

Hope you are all having a happy summer weekend.  Thanks for dropping by!  Happy crafting!


Stamps: Unity “Shine On” and “Birthday Chic”

Papers: Papertrey Ink “Select White” and “True Black”; My Mind’s Eye “Stella Rose – Gertie”

Inks: Memento “Tuxedo Black”; Black Marker

Accessories: Hero Arts Accent Pearls; Gingham Ribbon; SU Corner Punch
