A Sassy Birthday Card | Embossing with a Stencil

Hey guys! Today I am sharing a sassy birthday card using the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I love this card, I think it is hilarious!

First I stamped a whole bunch of candles from the set onto Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with Versamark ink. I embossed them with Alabaster white embossing powder and then cut them all out with my Scan N Cut 2. For some extra detail I shaded the flames on the candles with a white Prismacolor pencil.

For the background I taped the Abstract Triangles stencil from Simon Says Stamp over a piece of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock. I smooshed my Versamark ink pad over the stencil and then embossed the design with clear embossing powder. I cut the background down to 5 x 5 and blended some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink along the edges.

I popped up the background onto a 5.5 x 5.5 card base with foam tape. I then glued down a layer of the candles along the bottom of the card with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I popped up a second layer of candles over the first with foam tape. Using some scissors I cut the bottoms of the candles to be flush to the bottom of the stenciled background.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink onto Bazzil Licorice Twist cardstock and embossed it in white. I then fussy cut the sentiment out and glued it to some vellum. I cut that out so that the sentiment would have a vellum border and then popped it up on the card. To finish up I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

Rainbow Texture Paste | Celebration Video Hop

Hey crafty people! Today I am excited to be sharing a card I created for a video hop celebrating It’s Me, JD hitting 50,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel! We celebrated with some rainbow themed cards and there is also a giveaway! If you want to find out more about the giveaway head over to It’s Me, JD’s blog.

To start this card I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to 3.5 x 8.5. I then picked out a sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and stamped it on the panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Next I taped the panel to a craft mat with the Abstract Triangles stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the top. I dyed some Ranger transparent gloss texture paste with Distress Oxide ink and spread it over the stencil. I used the colors Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass.

3.jpg

In order to dye the texture paste all you need to do is smoosh the ink pad onto the craft mat, add the paste, and then mixed it up with a palette knife. Once I was done added the paste to the top of the panel I washed the stencil off and did the bottom half of the panel as well. Next I removed and washed the stencil, the craft mat, and the palette knife and then I set the panel aside to dry for about an hour.

I popped up the panel onto a 4 x 9 card base with foam tape. To finish it up I added a few Moonshine sequins from Simon Says Stamp.

Make A Wish Birthday Card with Glitter Paste

Hello my friends! I hope you are all having an amazing day today. I am sharing a clean birthday card design using stamps from Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp.

5.jpg

I took a piece of Neenah Solar white cardstock and taped it to a board. On top of that I placed the Mini Staggered Circles stencil from My Favorite Things and I went over that with Fallen Snow Glitter Paste from Brutus Monroe. To make it sparkle even more I took the stencil off and sprinkled Unicorn Dust glitter over the whole thing. The glitter sticks to the paste.

I stamped a mermaid from the Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant onto some Neenah Solar White with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored the mermaid in with Copic markers and cut it out using my Scan N Cut. Next I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Tiny Words Birthday stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto Peacock cardstock and cut it into a strip.

6.jpg

I stamped a sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto a panel of Neenah Solar White. I then took my Glitter Paste panel and cut and oval from the center using the Hero Arts Nested Ovals die set. I popped up the Glitter Paste panel on the sentiment panel with foam tape so that the sentiment was right in the middle of the window. I popped up the mermaid and the tiny sentiment in the window with foam tape.

8.jpg

I took and A2 size card base and adhered a piece of Fog cardstock to the front. I then took my windowed panel and glued that to the card base. To finish the card I added some Coast sequins from Lucy’s Cards. I also added highlights and details to the mermaid with a white gel pen. Finally, I went over the smaller sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

First he took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and added strips of washi tape across it. He then blended each section with a different color of Distress Oxide ink. He used the colors Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet. He then laid out a bunch of the sentiments from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp along the white stripes created by the washi tape and stamped them with the Misti Tool using a gray ink.

Next he picked out the numbers 3 and 1 from the Birthday Numbers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and also the happy birthday sentiment from the Greetings Galore stamp set from My Favorite Things. He embossed them with white embossing powder on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock.

He stamped the balloons from the Birthday Numbers stamp set onto some Neenah Solar white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. He colored those in with Copic markers. He used the Scan N Cut 2 in order to cut out all of the stamped images.

To put the card together he first glued the background panel to an A2 size card base. He used liquid glue to adhere the balloons and foam tape to pop up the numbers and the sentiment. To finish up he went over the balloons with Glossy Accents.

The colors I used are Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. I cut the balloons out using the coordinating die set.

I created a frame out of white cardstock using a rectangle die and glued a piece of acetate to the back of it. I then glued a row of balloons along the top edge of the frame. Next I took an A2 size panel of white cardstock and blended some clouds on it using a cloud stencil and a light gray ink. I glued another row of balloons on that panel.

2.jpg

I used some doubled up foam tape on the edges of my frame to create a shaker are and filled it up with clear sequins and micro pearls. I closed up the shaker with the cloud panel. For the sentiment I used the Happy Birthday die set from Pink and Main. I also embossed a few smaller sentiments from the Birthday Script stamp set and popped them up on the card.

For the finishing touches on the card I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush on the sentiment strips and I also added a few sequins on the front of the shaker.
