We’re celebrating Bob the Builder’s birthday today! This patient, generous and amazing husband of mine deserves some recognition. He works tirelessly behind the scenes on nearly aspect of Lisa’s Stamp Studio. He’s my IT guy, purchasing agent, installation team, my sounding board and an amazing business partner. Seriously, I wouldn’t be blogging or making videos without his help. He’s ubber smart and have I mentioned patient? ((smile))
We celebrated Bob’s birthday on Saturday but I wanted to him to have a small gift and a card to open this morning before he left for work. He’s an avid movie buff so I opted for an AMC Movie Gift Card which fit nicely into this card using the Bird Banter stamp set. I’ve included a video tutorial below along with pictures and cutting dimensions for his card. Today’s video will provide additional tips and tricks using the Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers to color in the parakeet and balloon shown here.
Happy Birthday, Bob the Builder – I adore you!
