I have two projects for you today. My first card uses Silly Birthday Monsters and Happy Birthday Word Die Set. I started with a background I created a few weeks ago using Ken Oliver Color Burst. It is a watercolor powder that activates when exposed to water. I placed some on a dry piece of Canson XL watercolor paper and sprayed it from above with a Ranger Mister. I cut it down using a Stitched Rectangle die from Your Next Stamp. I cut out the smaller Happy Birthday from the word die set, directly from the background. I used and inlaid die cutting technique to pop up the word using black craft foam.

My image from Silly Birthday Monsters was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using Copic Markers. A color map of the colors I used is posted below. I cut out the image using its coordinating die and popped up on the background panel with 3M foam tape. I white heat embossed
the "little monsters" sentiment on black cardstock and popped it up with foam tape as well.

As a final touch, I used the brand new Pretty Peacock Gumdrops to add a bit more purple into the project. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. The background is so fun and these images from the Silly Birthday Monsters Stamp Set are to die for.

For info on my second project, photos of both cards, a link to my YouTube video, and links to all of the products used, (except brand new releases), continue reading!
  











Supply list card one:


My second card today uses the new Birdie Banners stamp set and the Party Dress Die Set, along with the fabulous new scalloped rectangle die set.

I started with a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base. I used the largest of the scalloped rectangle dies to cut out my front panel in a light pink cardstock. This is Pixie by Avery Elle, which is discontinued.

I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah 80 lb. Solar White cardstock and I did very simple Copic coloring. The Party Dress was cut from Bazill White cardstock that is textured. The dress and the bow from the set was popped up with foam tape.

I finished it off with some Duck Egg Blue Nuvo Crystal drops.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, please make sure you hop along with us and comment along the way for your chance to win!
