Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the My Favorite Things July Release Countdown Day 5.
My cards today, I am featuring the Celebrate with Cake stamp set & Die-namics, Birthday Speech Bubbles stamp set, Big Birthday Sentiments stamp set, and Big Birthday Balloons Die-namics.
For my first card, I used the Celebrate with Cake & Birthday Speech Bubbles stamp sets. First, I stamped the images, to make three-tier cake, from the Celebrate with Cake set on heavy white card stock using several colours of hybrid ink: Latte, Summer Splash, Sour Apple, Pineapple, Grape Jelly, and Red Hot. I then die cut them with the Celebrate with Cake Die-namics. Next, I die cut a piece of white card stock using the scallop rectangle panel die in the Blueprints 27 Die-namics, and then stamped the speech bubbles from the Birthday Speech Bubbles set on it with Gravel Gray hybrid ink. I mounted all elements as shown to an A2 sized white card base using dimensional foam tape, then embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
For my second card, I used the Big Birthday Balloons Die-namics as my supply. I ink blended the balloon die cuts with rainbow colours using mini ink blending tool – Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Seedless Preserves Distress inks. Next, I stamped the stuffed bear from the Beary Special Birthday set on watercolour paper in Black Licorice hybrid ink, coloured it with Peerless watercolors, then die cut it with the Beary Special Birthday Die-namics. For the background, I stamped the Scattered Surface Background on an A2 sized white paper panel with Gravel Gray hybrid ink. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it, Big Birthday Sentiments stamp set, on black card stock in white. Finally, I mounted all elements as shown to an A2 sized white card base using dimensional foam tape, then embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
