Hooray! It’s Your Birthday

This is another image from Art Impressions that makes a great masculine card.  I used it this time for a birthday card, but I’ve used it for an invitation for a backyard barbecue that was really cute as well.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (E19, E08, E07; YG97, YG95, YG93; E35, E33, E31; E49, E47; W9, W7, W5; C2, C1, C0).

To create the scene I die cut two rectangles using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle, once for the sky background, and another to create the grass, which was created using a Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border.  Fluffy clouds were cut using Avery Elle’s Pierced Clouds dies.

The sky rectangle was ink blended using Distress Inks Tumbled Glass and Broken China using a Ranger Mini Blending Tool.  The grass was ink blended with Distress Inks Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint.  The two were adhered together using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  To add more interest, little tufts of grass were added with Copic Markers.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink onto the grass and heat embossed using Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  Before doing this ensure that the ink has completely dried so the embossing powder only sticks to the sentiment.

The focal image was die cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added by tracing around the image with a pencil and fussy cutting it with scissors.  The clouds were adhered to the sky portion of the rectangle, one with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape and the other directly to the rectangle with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The focal image was adhered using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Let’s Par-Tee

I have some friend who are real golf enthusiast.  When I saw the Art Impressions Par-Tee Golfers stamp set I knew it would make great birthday cards.  For this card I used the gentleman golfer in his little golf cart.  It turned out great!

I stamped the image Memento London Fog Ink onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers 034 Dull Blue, 030 Blue, 036 Light Blue, 031 Cobalt Blue, 081 Light Violet, 080 Violet, 071 Flesh, 064 Oatmeal, 028 Light Pink, 091 Light Gray, 092 Blue Gray, 096 Mid Gray, 090 Gray, 010 Black.

Once the image was dry I cut around it using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back by tracing around the image with a pencil and fussy cutting the foam with a scissor.

Two Rectangles were cut from some more Bristol Smooth Cardstock and die cut using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX die.  The first rectangle was blended with Distress Tumbled Glass Ink to create the sky for the scene.  The second rectangle was cut again using a Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border die and then ink blended with Distress Mowed Lawn.  The two were adhered together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

The golfer was placed on the rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set.  Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch was used for stamping.  The golfer was added to the scene by adding Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to the foam backing.  Little golf balls were added by using Queen  & Co. Pearls.

Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the focal image rectangle and it was adhered to a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.

Now It’s Time to Celebrate

I really love the Art Impression images.  They are so fun and playful and they make really great cards.  When I saw this stamp set I had to have it.  I love the way it turned out.

I stamped the image on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock since I wanted to color it with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers (045 Pale Green, 041 Light Green, 083 Lilac, 080 Violet, 036 Light Blue, 031 Cobalt Blue, 034 Dull Blue, 030 Blue, 051 Lemon Yellow, 050 Yellow, 026 Light Pink, 021 Light Carmine, 071 Flesh, 064 Oatmeal, 072 Beige, 061 Light Brown, 067 Mustard, 066 Dark Oatmeal, 065 Mid Brown, 062 Dark Brown, 091 Light Gray).

Once it was dry I cut around the image using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  I placed the cutout on some Darice Sticky Back Foam and traced around the image with a pencil and fussy cut the foam and added it to the back of the image.

A scalloped rectangle was cut from some more Bristol Smooth Cardstock using the Winnie and Walter Audrey Essential Die.  Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass was added with a mini blending tool.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back for dimension.  The die cut image was placed on the rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment with Distress Oxide Black Soot and then the focal image was adhered with Nuvo deluxe Adhesive.

A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image rectangle was adhered using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  The final embellishments were to add some Clear Wink of Stella to the pom poms and add complimentary colors of Nuvo Crystal Drops to the shadows for dimension.  Multi-colored pearls were scattered around the image and the card was done.
