For those of you wondering where I’ve been. I caught a bad cold on Christmas Day that persisted through New Year’s. I certainly did not want to the start year in bed but I did. I missed a few days from work and now feel like I’m finally over it. I missed posting my project for the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments but managed to create these two birthday cards using the stamp set Another Great Year. I have two friends with birthdays and I wanted to use this very fun stamp set. I made two cards in two color stories.
Another Great Year 133041 clear $17.95, 13308 wood $23.95 Great price for so many stamps in this set!
This first card I used the color challenge colors at Hand Stamped Sentiments – Wisteria Wonder, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.
For this card I stamped the “Happy Birthday” first in Strawberry Slush on the Whisper White layer, cleaned the stamp, then inked up the stamp with Versamark and stamped on Strawberry Slush cardstock and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool. Using my paper snips I then cut out the “happy” and “to you” banner pieces so I could layer them over the Strawberry Slush stamped image to give it dimension and a bit of a “split negative” look. For embellishments I used the Mosaic punch to punch the tiles from Silver Glimmer paper and used a sponge dauber to color with Coastal Cabana ink. I used Wisteria Wonder CS for the flower punched using the Punch Pack. Finally to finish it off I used rhinestones.
I finished the inside of the card with more of the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP, Strawberry Slush, ribbon and stamped the mosaic tiles from the stamp set “Mosaic Madness”.
Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge ends Jan 27, 2014, noon CST
The next card I created using the colors of Crisp Cantaloup, Pistachio Pudding and Pool Party. The DSP I used to pull these colors together comes from the new Occasions Catalog – Sweet Sorbet. Oh so pretty! Love the colors!
I used the same layering and embossing technique as the previous card but used different colors and stamps and Voila!
