Got Cake?

Hi there.  Having more rainbow fun and dropping in quickly to share (surprise, surprise 😂) another rainbow CAS birthday card.

 

 

To start, stamped the bear and cake with Memento black ink on Neenah cardstock, coloured with Copics then fussy cut out.  Created the plate by die cutting an Oval Shadow from a scrap of white cardstock and outlining the perimeter with a black marker.

 

 

Die cut ‘Celebrate’ three times from more white scraps and stacked them for dimension.  White heat embossed the second part of the sentiment on a black strip.

 

 

Took a white A2 rectangle panel and coloured the bottom with the same markers used to colour the cake.  Adhered the panel to a white top folding cardbase, then assembled the card.  Added clear shimmer to finish.

 

 

 

Spring has just begun, so I hope you’re not sick of seeing rainbow cards from me. 😉   Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!

DeLIGHTful Rainbow Birthday

Hello there.  I’m back to another rainbow birthday card and this was a really simple one.

 

 

On a scrap of Neenah cardstock, the image was stamped with black Memento ink, coloured with Copics in rainbow colours and die cut out with the coordinating die.  My alignment was a little off, so I had to do a little fussy cutting to even out the white border.

 

 

The sentiment from the same set was white heat embossed on a black A2 stitched rectangle from my stash.  The ray background was just stamped with white pigment ink. The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and Crystal Glaze was added to finish.

 

 

 

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Happiest of Birthdays

Hi there.  Green is not just for St. Patrick’s Day! 😉  Here’s a birthday card I created using a NBUS stamp set I’ve had for quite a while.

 

 

To begin, the wreath and some individual leaf images were stamped on X-press It paper with black Memento ink.  The individual leaves were used to fill in the sparse areas on the wreath and make it look fuller.  They were coloured with Copics, then fussy cut out since I don’t have the matching dies.

 

 

Then on a Wonky Stitched Rectangle panel die cut from hot press watercolor paper, masking was used to clear heat emboss the music strip background.  Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint distress inks were applied to it with a Clarity brush and excess ink was wiped off with a tissue for a little emboss resist.  The sentiment from the same set was white heat embossed on black cardstock.  I was going to add some green sequins, but decided to add some green splatters instead.

 

 

The panel was adhered to a white top folding cardbase before all elements were assembled.  To give the wreath some depth, shading was added with a gray colored pencil.  Crystal glaze on the green leaves finished off the card.

 

And that is all.  Thank you for visiting. Enjoy your day.

Otterly Mermazing Birthday

Hello there.  I’m back to share another birthday card for another niece who is turning 10 at the end of the month.  I was going to make a shaker, but since I have to mail it, I decided to finally give a window panel card a try.

 

 

The ottermermaid and rocks (from the same sets) were stamped with Memento black ink on scraps of Copic-friendly paper and coloured with Copics.  The images from the otter set were die cut out with the matching dies, while the images from the mermaid set were fussy cut since I don’t have the matching dies.

 

 

The card base was prepared from Mix Media paper.  2” was cut from the bottom of the front, and cut in half into two 1” pieces.  A piece of acetate was then attached to the base front to one of the 1” pieces, re-forming the front.  Covered up all but the 1” window with Whisper White cardstock.  The bottom 1” area was covered with a waves dry embossed piece from my stash.  The sentiment was stamped on the acetate with black StazOn ink.

 

 

For the inside through the window opening, an area was masked then distress inks in rainbow colours were ink blended with a mini blending tool.  Assembled the card and added clear glitter and white gel pen details to finish my first window panel card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your day.

Unicorn Rainbow Birthday

Hello there.  It’s a lovely sunny day here today!  Seems appropriate to share a rainbow birthday card I created for my niece who turned 6 this month.  Love any excuse to make rainbow cards.  😉

 

 

On a Neenah stitched rectangle panel, the unicorn was stamped with black Memento ink and masked.  Several wavy edge masks were die cut from masking paper with a snow drift die.  They were then used to mask off sections and distress inks in rainbow colours were blended with a mini blending tool.

 

 

Removed the unicorn mask and coloured with Copics.  The sentiment was black heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.

 

 

 

The panel was mounted with foam adhesive to a white top folding card base.  Clear shimmer was added to the rainbow and some sparkly clear sequins finished off the card.

Thank you for stopping by.  Unicorn kisses and rainbow wishes… 😂   I know it’s cheesy, but it’s just that kinda day.  😆
