Birthday Celebrations Blog Hop: Daffodil Trellis Pyramage Tag by Leigh!

Howzit Creative Friends!
I hope everyone is continuing to stay strong, healthy and happy as can be during this terrible time😘
I’m busy catching up on my blog hopping and loving all your fabulous makes shared so far in our Birthday Blog Hop and I’m so happy the hop is helping you stay creatively happy and busy🥰. I can’t believe we’re nearing the end of our Birthday Celebrations but don’t worry the fun will not end April 30 coz May brings us MerMay and Halloween in May, Woohoo🥳


If you’re just joining us today then here’s the scoop!
April is LeighSBDesigns Art Stamps Birthday month and I kicked off the celebrations April 1st with our Birthday Blog Hop which has a Birthday Bunny FREEBIE as my gift to you for playing and there's prizes up for grabs sponsored by Ike’s Art and LeighSBDesigns Art Stamps!  The Blog Hop is open all month long with multiple themes for you to create with so hop on over to my April 1st post for all the info and the Birthday Blog Hop Linky Party is at the bottom of that post🥳


My inspiration for today is Spring themed with a grungy vibe featuring Daffodil Trellis🌼
I had so much fun making my striking pyramage project!


Pyramage is a fun technique that involves stacking the same image multiple times in decreasing layers to create a pyramid.  I printed out Daffodil Trellis 3 times and used Stacked Tags dies by Tim Holtz to die cut out each layer.


I coloured each layer with Prismacolor Pencils and grunged them with Tea Dye Distress Ink and applied Black Soot Distress Ink to all the edges.  I mounted each tag onto heavy weight black cardstock and trimmed leaving narrow borders.  Then layered each tag on top of each other using black foam tape.  I also grunged up yellow ribbon and tucked it in between layers.


 Give the Pyramage technique a try and share in the last stretch of our Birthday Celebrations Blog Hop🥳.


Don’t have Daffodil Trellis in your collection yet then snap it up now, I’ve put my Daffodil Trellis as well as a few other designs perfect for Spring on sale until April 30🌼
 Enjoy😘

I’ve got another Birthday themed card for your inspiration today🥳

I had lots of fun creating a colourful Party Hats design as my focal point using the 4 different party hats included in my Party Hats Pack🥳


In Photoshop I lined up all the hats and tilted each one at a different angle!  The 4th hat in the pack is plain so you can add your own design to it.  I added the candles from the Oddleigh Cupcake set, fun right!


I coloured the Party Hats  up with Copics and used a white gel pen for highlights.  Then die cut out the panel using a Spellbinders large deckle rectangle die.


For lots of pretty sparkle I used yellow Studio G glitter glue on the Party Hat rims, pom poms and tassles and candle flames.  I used the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder for the card background.  For added interest I mounted the Party Hats panel onto the card with pop dots.



Wishing you all a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
