CI Celebrates 3rd Anniversary

Creative Inspirations is celebrating their 3rd Anniversary!

How exciting!!

We've decided to have a "BIRTHDAY" themed blog hop!

You should have came here from Kassi's blog, if not, please start at Creative Inspirations Blog as you don't want to miss out on all the fun!

I have been in LOVE with CI's shimmery paints since I first got my hands on them!!
They come in a wonderful variety of colors!
And most importantly, they are soooo SHIMMERY and beautiful!!

Here is the card I created for the hop:
I used CI Paints in:
Tutu Pink
Tickled Pink
Sky Blue
Autumn Wheat

I first stamped the image using black pigment ink and then embossed it using CI Deliquesce Fine Black embossing powder!

I then used the paints to color in the cupcake image!  A fun stamp set I received from a sweet friend!

The "Happy" is from the Lovey Puns Animals from My Thoughts Exactly.  The entire sentiment actually reads "Happy Valentine's Day", but I masked each letter of the "Happy" to create the letters on the banner.

The "Birthday" is also from MTE!  The set is called Big Thoughts, a wonderful mix and match set with many sentiment possibilities.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and embossed with one of my favorite Deliquesce Embossing Powders from CI!  It's called Super Sparkle Pink!!  So pretty!

Lastly a close-up of the shimmer:

Your next stop along out Birthday hop is Sandie's wonderful blog!

Here's a look at the entire hop list:
