So Much Happy - Birthday Cards

 Hi!  I didn't get to play with my stamps much last week because the cabinets for our game room arrived and needed to be primed and painted!  Painting is typically my job when we have projects around the house, and I am not fast.  I think the cabinets turned out great and am so HAPPY they are in!  Next project - Paint the improvised counter top!

When I did get to spend some time stamping, I decided to use the So Much Happy stamp set with coordinating Happy Dies.  This is the first card I made.  

My hubby thought I needed to make something a little more colorful for the next one, so this is what I came up with.  He thinks it's perfect for a young boy.  What do you think? 

For the stars in the background, I colored each star individually on the stamp, then stamped.  I repeated the process every time before stamping, being sure to color each star the same color previously used.  When using this technique, always make sure to start with your lightest color.  I also turned the stamp a little when stamping, so it wasn't all exactly the same.  

The ingredients for the 2nd card is below.  Happy stamping!
