A Birthday Weekend!

I got a little bit of stamping done this weekend, which is pretty remarkable since my weekend looked like this:
And that doesn't even show the three dishes I made for the family gathering, or the five other dishes made in the same kitchen....which doesn't include the cake, haha! (My awesome husband made the cake, btw!)

But of course I needed a card from his parents and a card from his sister! I made two, sort of similar, haha...and let his sister choose which card was from her, she chose the first.

This one uses the newest returning sketch from Nacho Average Challenges! I'm so excited they're back and I really hope to keep playing with them! This uses the May 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit, a retired set of Star Dies, and retired sequins! But, it totally suits my son!
And if you're curious, I used packing tape stuck together for the window, and lined the star edges with the edges of Dimensionals sheets to hold the sequins in. And yes, those sequins are Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar!
Stamps: May 2016 Paper Pumpkin
Ink: Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Whisper White card stock, May 2016 Paper Pumpkin
Accessories: May 2016 Paper Pumpkin, Stars Dies(retired), Big Shot, Dimensional (edges!), In Color Sequins (retired)

Next, I wanted to use the Mojo Monday sketch that has now passed. I decided to use that star I had just cut out again, haha! This one is pretty simple, Again I used a retired stamp set, and these star sticker bits came from the May Paper Pumpkin as well!
Stamps: Words of Truth (retired)
Ink: Night of Navy
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Whisper White card stocks
Accessories: May 2016 Paper Pumpkin, Big Shot, Stars Dies (retired)

And that is all the stamping I have done for a while! *sniff sniff....
Maybe this week I can get more done??
