Sending Birthday Hugs & Wishes
Posted on June 07 2021
Maria here with you on the blog today bringing you another inspiration, showcasing some new and older stamp sets and dies by LDRS Creative. Lately, it seems like I'm always running out of birthday cards so I decided to create one to add to my stash of cards.
To begin, I die-cut some Neenah Solar white card stock using the outer die from the Floral Foliage Slim Line die set. I ink-blended this panel using the Magical Skies Stencil (hills & sky) and the Rainy Day stencil (grass), with the Swimming Hole and Pistachios-A-Plenty Hybrid Ink.
Next, I stamped the images from the Up & Away Stamp Set with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them in with alcohol markers. I used the Up & Away coordinating dies to die-cut them out. I adhered the images on the focal panel with liquid glue, as I didn't think it needed any dimension.
Next thing to do is to add a sentiment. I stamped the sentiment/s from the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stack stamp set on some black card stock with the LDRS Watermark ink. I sprinkled some LDRS White Embossing Powder and heat-set with my heating tool. Using the Sentiment Stack Coordinating Dies made it possible to die-cut all of the sentiments in one go! I saved the rest of the sentiment strips and put them inside my stamp pocket so I can use them for projects later!
I adhered the sentiment onto the card, and added this focal panel on some White Slimline card base. I finished the design by using my white gel pen to add more interest to the balloons. Here's another look:
I love the colorful balloons and the cute little elephants flying up, up & away! The magical sky just added that whimsical touch to the overall card design. I hope you like this card as much as I do. The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!
