Happy Birthday!



Hi Friends!

This morning I am sharing a card designed with the June Stamp of the Month, Texture Tiles 2 along with previously released stamp sets, Special Blend and Choose Faith (all from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps).

I incorporated several online challenges into the design- the Splitcoaststampers SC696 Sketch Challenge (modified a bit with the #4 and #5 elements on the sketch) and the CC672 Color Challenge as well as the Simon Monday “Food and/ or Drink” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). De-static two pieces of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the stacked cup image from Special Blend  onto one of the panels and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from Special Blend onto the other.

2). Die cut the stacked cup image with a stitched rectangle die and color the image using water-based markers.  Trim the sentiment by hand and mount both the sentiment and the cup image onto navy cardstock.  Die cut a piece of designer paper with the same stitched rectangle die and also mount onto navy cardstock.

3). To create the background panel- die cut a piece of white cardstock with a rectangle stitched die.  Press light pink ink onto a silicone craft mat, spritz with water and press the rectangle die cut into the ink.  Lift up , dry with a heat tool and repeat the process (if desired).  Ink the bold word images from Choose Faith (I used “GRACE” and “JOY”) with light pink ink and stamp repeatedly onto the panel.  Ink the brick wall image from Texture Tiles 2 with navy ink and stamp onto the background panel.  Mount the panel onto navy cardstock and mount again onto pear cardstock.  Adhere the panel to a white card base.

4). Mount the pear designer paper rectangle directly to the card front on an angle (per the sketch) and tilt the stacked cup image (again adhere directly to the card front).  Mount the portion of a white paper doily behind the sentiment and mount the sentiment with dimensional foam.

5).  Add a few buttons to the sentiment  and finish off the card with a clear glitter pen adding shimmer to the stacked cups and clear enamel drops to the dripping coffee.
