Happy 23rd Birthday!

I used the fun new Simon Says Stamp Birthday Numbers stamps/dies set to make a couple cards for my amazing Noah's birthday this month!!...
He IS Noah, so rainbows are totally a MUST(he is MY rainbow, and although I love rainbows, he is  the reason I REALLY love rainbows like I do!!)
This first card was actually my second card, when the first one didn't turn out as I planned.  For this card, I stamped, embossed, and die cut the numbers.  I used an acetate sheet as a "ruler" on the letters, to color them with a striped patten.  My coloring with markers wasn't perfect, but it turned out pretty good.  I simply moved the piece of acetate up the number, coloring the number up to the end of the acetate, using acetate, I could see where I was and where I wanted to be.  I stamped the candles and flames from the Simon Birthday Borders stamp set with my MISTI for positioning.  I also added a sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set.  I added some Wink of Stella glitter to my numbers:)!  Here's a close up

This second card was actually my first attempt, but it went through some changes before it made the cut...
I used strips of patterned paper, adhered to a light weight piece of cardstock, then stamped the numbers onto the striped papers.  I THOUGHT I was going to cut out the patterned paper numbers and add them onto stamped and die cut numbers, but they just didn't look right...😞.  Soooo, I left them as they were, without the depth, over a border of "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" stamped sentiments.  I stamped the sentiments with my MISTI for perfect placement.  I did, however, stamp from top to bottom of an entire card, but another of the things that didn't make it, I cut two of them off, added a black strip, and popped up over a blue patterned piece of cardstock, like the patterned paper of the numbers.  Here's a close up...
These numbers are fun...and have wonderful possibilities, colored, made from patterned paper, die cut or hand cut...FUN!!   Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
