MC July/13 - Sugar Free Lollipops - HB

click on card to enlarge. Enjoy
I acquired some design element stamps from gg designs and new right away they reminded me of the swirls in lollipops BIG GRIN... it's something I don't eat anymore - too much disgusting sugar content. but these as I say are sugar free and 0 calories. ROFL. It's also my friends birthday - she's a Leo...

I side folded a 4.25"w x 5.5"h white card. stamped the centers of the lollipops with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

I didn't have a circle rubber stamp the right size, so cut one out from some Speedball "Speedy carve" rubber. You could also use fun foam for a quick stamp.

Inked up the round stamp with Distress Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick & Persimmon.

Drew in the candy holders with a grey brush pen and outlined it with a black fine tip pen. Tied tiny peg bows in matching colors and adhered to card.

Wrote in the words with a pointed pen and Sumi ink in my Fickle font.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday" (Happy Family Days set) one of the newest stamps from Quietfire Design

As a final detail, used a yellow and red colored pencil to create a border.

And it fits for these challenges:

This card is full of wonderful creative details. What a cool way to use the swirl stamp and to create your own circle stamp. The lollipop sticks look so dimensional and your Fickle Font is charming. Thanks for joining our Happy Birthday challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
