Background:

    I started with a piece of Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass cardstock. I knew I wanted to create a mint candy inspired card with pink, red and mint. I cut my panel to the same size as the stencils I knew needed to be used first. The Seamless Starburst Circles Layering Stencils come in a set of six, numbered for your convenience. They are marked with corners so that that you can easily align your A2 sized card panel with each stencil. I found it easier to cut the card panel to the same size as the stencil, with plans to cut it down after its fully dry. The stencil measures about 5 by 6 1/4 inches. I used low tack tape to adhere both the stencils and my card panel to my glass mat. 

With my card panel and stencil firmly in place I started with stencil number one and used white chalk paint by Folk Art. The chalk white finish created a nice bright white base to start my color combo off with. I used the same white paint for stencil two. I found that the 6 stencils were broken down into two teams of three. The odd number stencils for one part of the completed design and the even numbers for the other. I will be using the same color combo for both sets of stencils creating a design with just one color combo. Although I am choosing to use the same combo for this project, my creative brain is overloaded with with possibilities of this stencil set. For stencils three and four I used Simon Says Stamp Hollyhock Hybrid ink. This was the perfect pink to layer over the white. It held its own while also creating a nice light pink gradient in between.

    Before using the next couple stencils, I stopped and put my panel into my original MISTI. I wanted to use a gel paste with the next stencil, so I needed to add my stamped image before adding the dimension of the paste. The Seamless Starburst Circles stamp set coordinates together with the stencils. I easily lined up the large background stamp in the set over my panel concentrating on the center of the circles. Hint- As long as your circles are aligned it should be just fine. The design allows for it not to be stamped perfectly every time. Although, I think I nailed it! I used Altenew Industrial Diamond to stamp the solid lined image. Black was too harsh for the look I was going for. This dark gray did the trick. 

Moving onto stencils five and six, I used Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel to make this stunning pop of red. I did however start with using the Gina K Designs Cherry Red as a base to make sure you only saw red. I love how this gel levels out and keeps a uniform structure, and it's so shiny!! 

This panel was set aside to dry completely and then cut down to 4 1/4 by 3 1/2.

Sentiment:

    I used the NEW Happy Birthday Sentiments stamp to stamp my sentiment. I stamped the "cheers" onto My Favorite Things Cotton Candy cardstock with Gina K Designs watermark ink. I then heat embossed it using Simon Says Stamp White embossing powder and my Wagner heat tool. 

I absolutely love when there are coordinating dies to go with sentiments. I used the Happy Birthday Sentiments die set to cut it out. I love this look and the coordinating dies make it so easy. I popped up my sentiment with foam tape directly onto the finished card panel. 

Assembly:

    I added my completed card panel to a Simon Says Stamp fog card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding portrait orientation. The panel was popped up using a piece of white craft foam cut slightly smaller than the panel itself to conceal it's identity. 

    To finish off the card I added a few sparkling clear sequins. I also stamped the sentiment "I hope your day sparkles on the inside" also from the Happy Birthday sentiments stamp set. I used the same gray in to stamp it. 

I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. Don't forget to check out the rest of the hop. (CLICK HERE!) to visit Pinkfresh Studio.
