Birthday Balloons Fuse Tool Shaker

Hello friends! Today I have a fun fuse tool shaker card to share with you! This card features some stamps from the Party Like a Panda stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

To begin I took a piece of Canson watercolor paper and blended across is with a few different colors of Distress Oxide inks. The colors I used are Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, and Squeezed Lemonade.

I sprinkled clean water onto my Distress Oxide background and soaked it up with a paper towel. This lifts up some spots of ink across the panel. Next I took Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigment in the color Pearl and splatted some drops of that onto the panel. To finish up the background I added even more splatters with some of the Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink.

I took the Party Like a Panda set and picked out the balloon sentiment. I stamped that onto vellum with Versamark ink and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder. Next I took the Birthday sentiment and stamped it onto some white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I fussy cut both of those sentiments out with scissors. For the last sentiment I picked out one of the smaller one, embossed it in white on black cardstock, and cut it into a strip.

Using my Fuse Tool I turned my background panel into a shaker pocket. I filled that pocket with some large clear glitter and clear micropearls. Once it was closed up I adhered it to an A2 size card base with my ATG gun. I then glued all of the sentiments to the front with a combination of both liquid adhesive and foam tape.

For the finishing touches on this card I first went over the balloon letters with Copic markers to give them some color. I then went over them with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to give them dimension. Using my Wink of Stella glitter brush I added sparkle to the other two sentiments. Finally I added some sequins around the sentiments white I then filled with the Crystal Glaze.

I picked out the “happy birthday” sentiment from the Celebrate Sentiments stamp set and stamped it onto a large strip of white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then adhered that strip onto a panel of patterned paper. Using a white gel pen I went around the edge of the patterned paper with dashed lines.

I arranged all of the images on the panel and then glued them down with either Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive or foam tape. I then glued the whole panel onto a card base. I added highlights to all of the stamped images with a white gel pen.

For the finishing touches I first used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the balloon, the cherries, and the circles on the cake. Next I added some sparkle here and there with a glitter brush. Finally I added a whole bunch of sequins on the background to make this card really look like a real crazy party.

Distress Oxide Ink on Black Cardstock | Simple Birthday Card

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a very simple birthday card featuring some Distress Oxide ink blending on black cardstock.

2.jpg

I started with a panel of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and masked off a small section on the bottom. I then blended over that section with some Distress Oxide ink.

4.jpg

After that I continued using masking and different colors of Distress Oxide ink to create rays of color which all start in the bottom left hand corner. The colors that I used are Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves.

1.jpg

I cut the panel down to 3.75 x 5 and then picked out a sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder.

3.jpg

Next I took out the Wish Upon a Star stamp set from Mama Elephant. I used all of the little star stamps from this set to stamp the background with Versamark ink. I then embossed them with Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder.

5.jpg

I added dashed lines around the border of the panel with a white gel pen. I then popped the panel up onto a back card base with foam tape.

Simple Stamping and Copic Coloring | Birthday Card

Hello all! Today I have a very simple and easy card design using some products from Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I stamped the sentiment from the Stop Drop Party stamp set onto a panel of Neenah cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next I stamped some of the pandas from the Little Agenda Panda set on the panel with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink.

2.jpg

I colored the panda images with Copic markers. Next I took out the Little Agenda Trains stamp set and picked out the cloud and stars stamps. I stamped them in the background on the panel with Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp.

3.jpg

I glued a piece of Really Rainbow cardstock to an A2 card base. I glued the stamped panel to a piece of black cardstock and then adhered the whole thing to the base. I used a light gray marker to add some shading to the clouds.

4.jpg

To finish up the card I added Wink of Stella glitter to the clouds and stars. I also used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to the pandas.

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!

2.jpg

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.

4.jpg

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.

1.jpg

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.

3.jpg

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.
