Have a beary good Birthday

Hi there,

I would like to show you this fun Birthday Card over on the Stamping-Fairies Blog:

  • stamp the skating bear from the My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) onto a stitched rectangle panel cut from white cardstock
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • mask off the bear and create a background using the My Favorite Things Circle Scribble Flower set and Altenew Crisp Ink (Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, Sea Glass, Ocean Waves)
  • remove the mask and color the bear with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • add highlights with a white gel pen and shimmer with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • stamp the My Favorite Things Diagonal Stripes Background with Versafine (Onyx Black) directly onto the white cardbase
  • add a strip of turquoise glitter cardstock to the bottom of the focal panel before adhering it to the cardbase

Überraschung - Surprise

Hi there,

I would like to share another fun birthday card over on the Karten-Kunst Blog with you:

  • stamp one of the adorable fish from the Avery Elle That Bites set with Versafine (Smokey Gray) and color the image with Twinkling H20s (Pewter, Mango Mamba, Rose Petal, Teal Zircon) - I used my ZIG Clean Color Real Bruh Pens to add some shading
  • cut out two stitched rectangles - one from watercolor paper and one from smooth white cardstock
  • cut out the scallopped My Favorite Things Peek-a-Boo Circle Window from the smooth piece and stamp the little bubbles from the same stamp set with different Altenew Crisp Inks (Puffy Heart, Caribbean Sky, Ocean Waves, Warm Sunshine)
  • add the sentiment with the help of the Karten-Kunst Große Worte Überraschung stamp set and Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • use the watercolor piece as a background and add color with Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers) and the Mini Ink Blending Tool - add some water droplets using the Mini Mister for extra texture
  • cover the opening with actetate and create a shaker element with the help of double-sided foam tape
  • fill the shaker element with Pretty Pink Posh Sequins (4mm Cornflower, 4mm and 6mm Aquamarine)

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
