hope you’ve enjoyed your New Year weekend.
When I was writing my blog yesterday describing Kirsty’s card, I was quietly making up my mind to
to have a go at making a “random” card!
Today’s card is my first one and I used Kirsty’s Christmas card as a sketch for mine.
Although it’s way out of my comfort zone, I’m quite happy with the result!
Basic Black Archival Ink, I stamped Happy Birthday, which is from the Better Together Stamp Set, in the centre.
I chose to use three
colours for my card: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry.
the stripes on the top and bottom of this layer, I used the stamp from
the Ready To Pop Stamp Set, and stamped it in Bermuda Bay.
I created a
mask for the sentiment, by stamping it onto a Post
It Note and then cut around the edge leaving about an eight of an inch all
I placed the mask over the sentiment and inked the stamp
with Melon Mambo.
I stamped it once over the sentiment, re-inked and
covered the stripe at the bottom and stamped again.
I repeated this once
more on the top left hand side.
I cleaned my stamp, repeated the process with Bermuda Bay Ink, cleaned my stamp again and repeated with Crushed Curry Ink.
party hat stamp is also from the Better Together Stamp Set.
I cut them out by hand, and painted over
the pom-poms with my Basic Black Marker Pen to hide the Whisper White CS
that was still visible.
I adhered them randomly on the top
layer using Tombow.
Then I adhered the top ayer onto a layer of Bermuda Bay CS, and
then adhered it onto a base card of Whisper White CS.
I could have used Washi Tape for the stripes at the top and bottom, but as I said yesterday, I’m not really into Washi Tape!
Definitely an idea I’ll try again. Thanks for the inspiration, Kirsty!
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
