Birthday Hop

Hello and welcome to My-O's 32 Birthday Blog Hop! Shannon is turning 32 and what better thing to do then have a hop with us crafty people to celebrate!! If you stumbled upon this hop by chance, excellent!! Just make sure you start back at the beginning to give Shannon, the birthday girl, some warm wishes and for a chance to win some awesome yummy candy!! If you came here from 

Sylvia you are on the right track.
Now I wanted to try something I hadn't done before. Remember how I used to be on the design team for Amazing Mold Putty? Well, since I love this stuff so much I created a mold using a Happy Birthday rubber stamp. It's a square foam one and it worked like a charm, (hehehe). You will understand the pun in a minute. Once the mold set up I then paint brushed some green pearl ex into the lettering
 and poured the clear cast resin. It did need to set up for about 29 hours, but it was well worth the wait.
 I also added a green rhinestone to it. It submerged into the clear cast resin and looks awesome. My picture taking ability is just not that good. Do you see how the pearl ex highlights the wording? Isn't that just awesome? I then drilled a hole into the side of the casted piece with my dremel and added a keychain to it.
 Here is the backside of the keychain. See the words are protruding out from the back. Very unique looking.
 Well no birthday is complete without a card. I created this card especially with Shannon in mind. She loves the color green so I did the background with green inkpad, added some cardstock out of my scrap bin. The flowers were in my "to be used some day" bin and I added some homemade stick pins. I also used the same stamp that I created the keychain from for the sentiment.

So I want to thank Shannon for inviting me to her birthday hop and I hope you have found my project interesting.
Thanks for hopping along today. Your next stop in the festivites is Diane
