Hi everyone, it’s Lisa here again, stamping with The Ton! I’m stopping by today to share with you a sweet little birthday card I made using The Ton’s Summer Blooms stamps and coordinating dies. I love the look of these Summer Blooms stamped with Hampton White Pigment ink and embossed with Ranger Superfine White embossing powder. I used Bristol watercolor paper so that I could do some coloring with my Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I love watching Effie’s watercolor instructional videos on The Ton’s YouTube channel. She has helped me learn to color and shade my florals using different techniques and mediums. If you get a chance, I highly recommend you stop on over and follow her on YouTube, she’s awesome!
Using The Ton’s Minor Stripes Cling Background Stamp and Hollywood Star dye ink, I stamped a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of white cardstock. Then I cut a 2″ piece for the bottom and glued the Summer Blooms to the top edge. Using the Modern Labels die set I cut a piece to line up along the top edge of the card. I added dimensional tape to the back of both of these pieces.
Next, I stamped the sentiment onto a top folded 4.25″ x 5.5″ white card base. I temporarily positioned the top and bottom striped pieces to make sure I was lining the sentiment up correctly. Using my MISTI I stamped the Noir black sentiment first, from the Summer Blooms stamp set. This set has some beautifully scripted sentiments along with the florals and I really love the look of the mixed fonts. I stamped the “Happy Birthday” from the Beer stamp set using more Hollywood Star dye ink.
Before adhering the two finished striped pieces, I also stamped some pretty Hollywood Star pink hearts from the Panda Can’t Even stamp set. Then I thought it would be super cute to add a little panda peeking out from the flowers. He is stamped with Noir black dye ink and cut out with coordinating dies. I just bought this Panda Can’t Even set and I think I’d better warn you…you’ll be seeing these little cuties a lot from me for a while. If I have my way, they will peek out from every card I make. They are just so fun!
Well, that’s my card for today. I hope these fun colors brightened up your Thursday a little.
