Birthday Fun with Birthday Pals

Hi Sweet Friends! 

I hope all of you are having a great week so far!  This card was created with the brand new  from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS), Birthday Pals Clear Stamp Set along with the coordinating dies (the coordinating dies are only available in the Birthday Pals Bundle) and I paired it with the previously released set,  Grunge Elements 2.

This fun stamp set is perfect for birthday cards for kids of all ages!  

I incorporated the Freshly Made Sketches FMS250 Challenge for the design and it is also one of the cards I created for the August 2016 Splitcoaststampers’ MISSION- Cards for A Cause (The Birthday Party Project conducts birthday parties for homeless children in shelters and other transitional housing- see more details here)

To create this card:

Create your own background paper by stamping the Grunge Elements 2 images with turquoise, melon and tangerine ink onto a piece of white cardstock.

Trim the stamped background into the angle per the sketch, mount onto melon cardstock and add to the white cardstock background panel. 

Stamp the sentiment from SNSS Birthday Pals Clear Stamp Set using archival black ink.

If needed, trim the background panel once more and mount onto the melon card base.

Ink the frog and balloons from the SNSS  Birthday Pals Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink, heat set the ink and color the images with water-based markers (I used a bright melon, turquoise and olive green),  Use a water brush to blend the color and die cut with the coordinating dies.
Added a few sequins for more fun!

Add highlights to the balloons and spots to the frog with the Sharpie® White Extra Fine Paint Pen.

Adhere the balloons and frog with dimensional foam to the card front to finish off the card.

Quick, easy and fun!!
