Hello crafty friends! I am so honored to be guest designing again for Gina K. Designs today and am showcasing the brand new Let’s Celebrate Stamp Set illustrated by Beth Silaika. This set is filled with wonderful sentiments as well as some great celebratory accents for your projects. * (Affiliated links used where applicable at no extra cost to you.)
To start, I stamped a cute little hippo and a cake from the Hippo Bird Day Stamp Set and some balloons from the Beautiful Balloons Stamp Set onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored these images with Copic Markers and cut them out with my Brother ScanNCut Machine.
Copic Colors Used:
- Hippo: W00, W0, W2, W4
- Blues: BG0000, GB02, BG05, B07
- Pinks: RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66
- Purples: BV0000, V12, V17, V09
I then set my images aside to work on the background. I trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and then blended it with some blue Distress Oxide Inks (Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, and Chipped Sapphire). I blended the darkest color from the outer sides of the card and moved toward the center of my card with the lighter colors. Once done, I then splattered this piece with some water droplets, blotted it with a dry paper towel, and then set it aside to dry.
Once my panel was dry, I then trimmed it down to 4″ x 5.25″ and used a stamp block to stamp some confetti from the Let’s Celebrate Set onto my card panel with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. Once this was dry, I next heat embossed my sentiment as well as some white confetti pieces with some Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Lastly, I adhered this piece to an A2 vertical white card base and added my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for some extra dimension.
