MFT April Release Countdown Day 3!

Hello crafty friends!  I am so excited to share with you the newest Pure Innocence Stamp Set from My Favorite Things.  It's called "Birthday Pinata" and it's just the cutest!

For my card today, I created a fun little birthday party scene.  Pinatas were one of my most favorite things to have at a birthday party when I was little, so this set brings back a lot of fun memories.  I combined this set with a tree limb from the Harvest Buddies Stamp Set and a cute little bunny from the Sweet Forest Friends Stamp Set.  I thought that the branch was a perfect addition from which to hang the pinata.

For my background, I diecut a piece of smooth white card stock with the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 2 and then lightly blended some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink onto this piece with a Clarity Stencil Brush.  I then colored in some grass with some green Copic Sketch Markers (YG0000, YG01, YG11, YG25).

I stamped my images with black ink onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then colored them with Copics (all colors used will be listed at the very bottom of this post).  I then used the coordinating dies to cut out my images.  I adhered them to my card with some 3D foam squares for some added dimension and used a piece of twine to "hang" my pinata.  Before I adhered everything, I stamped my sentiment with some black ink.
