Birthday Celebration Card CASE and Daughter Turns 14

It’s time for a birthday celebration! My daughter’s is turning 14 years-old – today! 😮 The card I have for you today is the one I created for my daughter, inspired by a fellow demonstrator.

Birthday Celebration CASE Card

Birthday Celebration card CASE using Stampin Up Balloon Celebration stamp set using Island Indigo ink.

For Megan’s birthday, I wanted to create a unique card. One that would incorporate the stamp set Balloon Celebration, plus Large Numbers Framelits Dies. I came across a fabulous card on one of my favorite websites – SplitcoastStampers. In face, I liked the card so much, I decided to CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) it, and use the same watercoloring technique she learned from a YouTube video shown below.

The inspiration for this card came from a fellow demonstrator, Stesha Bloodhart. The video, teaching the watercolor technique, was created by a demonstrator in Germany, Steffi Helmschrott. I love how different this watercolor looks compared to others I have tried.

Today is actually my husband’s birthday too. However, today Megan is having a “friend” party at our house. This is her first party in a very long time. We are usually in the throws of swim team at this time of year, but with the pool closing it has freed up a little bit of time to celebrate.

I just pray everything goes well for my daughter’s party this evening. We have a small house and do not generally host parties here. We are planning to roast marshmallows for s’mores by the fire pit, have a water balloon toss, make slime. I’m also make Mostaccioli and salad for dinner, plus we’ll have birthday ice cream cake. I’m hoping that will be enough, but will probably look up some other ideas just to have a plan B!

On Sunday with will have a family party for both my husband and daughter. Check back tomorrow to see my husband’s birthday card!
