Hero Arts Oldtimer’s Happy Birthday


Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun 3-D birthday card featuring birthday sentiments for ‘old’ people as well as a pop-up instant one-step camera from back in the day! Remember those?! I used several Hero Arts products – Irreverent Birthday Messages stamp set, blessings Stamp & Cut, Intense Black ink, and White Embossing Powder.

Before I get to my project details, quite a few of the Hero Arts stamp sets have sold out recently in the a2z Scrapbooking store and unfortunately the Irreverent Birthday Messages stamp set was one of them. I work ahead and had this card made prior to this stamp set selling out. Seems this has been happening to me a lot lately, lol. But I have good news – you can special order it at no extra cost when you order your other Hero Arts stamps from a2Z Scrapbooking!

The stamped image and sentiments on the front are all from the Hero Arts Irreverent Birthday Messages stamp set.


I stamped a genuine (from the heart) sentiment above the camera from the Hero Arts blessings Stamp & Cut set in Hero Arts Black Intense ink. I went back to the Hero Arts Irreverent Birthday Messages stamp set for the sentiment on the ‘instant camera picture’ which I embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I had one of these cameras and I’m pretty sure I chuckled throughout the entire process of making this, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
