I needed a masculine birthday card a few weeks ago, so I created this one using the Confetti Celebration stamp set from Stampin’ Up’s 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.
How To Make This Hand Stamped Card:
This card started with a base of Tempting Turquoise cardstock.
I then took some Watercolor Paper and wet it with my Aqua Painter. I then squeezed the lids of my ink pads: I used Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie inks- and used the Aqua Painter to pick up the ink that pooled in the lid (see the technique here) and dropped the ink onto the wet paper and spread it around and blended it, being careful not to let the colors mix too much or they would get muddy!
Next, the watercolor paper was dried using the Heat Tool to speed things up so I could get to the next step. 🙂 The lights from the Confetti Celebration stamp set were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored in using a Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Marker.
The balloons from the Confetti Celebration stamp set were stamped with Tempting Turquoise ink and Pumpkin Pie ink. The watercolor paper was then adhered to the card base.
To create the greeting:
The Happy Birthday greeting from the Confetti Celebration stamp set was stamped on Whisper White using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the letters were colored in using Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Markers. Then, it was punched out using the Pretty Label Punch.
To create the mat layer for the greeting, I punched some Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Pretty Label Punch, cut the punch out in half and adhered it to the back of the stamped greeting.
Finally, the greeting was added to the cardfront with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
