Stamped birthday cards

My project is actually four cards – when I first ink up a new stamp set I like to try it all out! I’ve stamped the four Falling Backgrounds on these, then added the four Party Animals . I pulled out all the stops and used lots of fun things to make these cards! Watch it below or click HERE to check it out in HD on YouTube.

I may have used a lot of products to create these stamped birthday cards that could be considered CAS (Clean and Simple…though Simple here may be a misnomer!) but they took less time than you might think. Mass producing the stamping the way I showed with the MISTI, and stamping the masks on the post it tape at the same time as the other stamping, totally saved me time.

I love the little shine that the Glossy Accents leaves on some of the elements of the stamped images! This bottle nib makes it so easy to control the amount of detail you can get – the nib is sooooo teeny, and all you do is pop out the existing nib on the GA and screw on the new one. Perfect fit!

In the video I promised I would show the bonus card I made using the masks I stamped on masking tape – I stamped the front-most images first, then put their mask on, stamped the next one behind it, etc. Then I watercolored them all with paints. I’ve been into this kittywompus type of card lately – just putting a panel on straight seems so…predictable. This one might just seem a little…crooked. Instead of intentional. Whatcha think?
