A Very Productive Stamping Day :)
This is a card I made today. I started with a 10x 5 inch piece of DCWV Luxury cardstock in light green, and scored it to make a 5 x 5 inch card. Using some scrap white cardstock, I inked up the Musical Walk and Happy Birthday stamp ( from the clear set of birthday wishes) in Shabby Shutters Distress Inks. I used a 2.5 inch circle punch to punch out the Musical Walk image, and I trimmed the sentiment image to size. I then punched a 3 inch circle from dark green cardstock, and took a piece a little bigger than the sentiment. I layered the white circle on the dark circle. I rounded the corners of the base cardstock, and the sentiment layers. I adhered the Happy Birthday flat to the card, but after adding some sheer white ribbon, I foam mounted the Musical Walk image on the card.
For the Poppy card, I started with white cardstock, I used a SU background stamp (I think it's French Script) and stamped it in Barn Door Red. Taking some textured red cardstock, I stamped Poppy Background in Versafine black ink. I rounded opposite corners and adhered to the card base. Using a SU punch, I punch out the label shape in the same red cardstock as the Poppies. I edged it in black, and stamped Happy Birthday on it. I foam mounted the label on to the card. The Poppy and Happy Birthday stamp are Hero Arts.
I started with some pink Bazzil bling cardstock. I rounded opposite corners. I stamped Silhouette Bells in Versafine Black ink on white textured cardstock, colouring in with Regal Rose and Green Galore markers (SU). I rounded all the corners, then mounted it onto some light green shimmer cardstock. I rounded the opposite corners again, making sure that I did the reverse of what was on the card base. I added some sheer white ribbon, and stamped Happy Birthday on the bottom right. All stamps are Hero Arts.
I used some blue Bazzil cardstock, cut at 4 1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5 1/2 inches. I took the Dots cling stamp, and stamped it in Memories Soft Baby Blue ink. I then used Walnut Stain Distress ink to stamp the typewriter and Happy Birthday sentiment from the Type clear set. I punched the typewriter out with a 2 1/2 inch circle punch. With some scrap brown ribbon I had on hand, I wrapped it around the front of the card, and adhered the Happy Birthday to it. I edged the circle in Walnut Stain Distress ink, and foam mounted it onto the card. All stamps are Hero Arts.
