Hello everyone! I have a birthday card today that focuses on both the Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes Stamp Set illustrated by Stacey Yacula and the new Skinny Stripes Horizontal Die-namics.
I stamped all of my fun images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Copic Colors Used:
- Blues: B0000, B000, B01, B04
- Oranges: YR12, YR04, YR07, YR18
- Fox: Y35, YR12, YR04, E08, E09
- Grays: W00, W1, W2, W4, W5
- Greens: YG00, YG01, YG05, YG17, YG67, G28
Once my images were finished, I went to work on the background. I trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and then diecut some stripes onto the bottom portion using the Skinny Stripes Horizontal Die-namics. I absolutely love this die set because it adds so much interest to your card while still looking neat and orderly. I masked off the bottom portion of my card and then splattered the top with some diluted Green and Blue Watercolor Paints.
I then took another panel of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and blended the bottom of it with Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. I placed this blended panel behind my top panel so that my ink blending would show through the horizontal cuts in the front of my card. I added my images to this front panel with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares. Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Black Licorice Card Stock and adhered it to the front of my card with some liquid adhesive.
