Cards 1 and 2

For these first two cards, I first stamped a background of circles using a circle from the Flower Circles Stamp Set in You Said What, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, Safe Choice, Happy Go Lucky, Chirp Chirp, New Fish in Pond, and Daydreaming Dye inks on two 4.25x5.25 panels of white 110lb cardstock. Next, I repeatedly stamped a balloon from the Balloon Messages Stamp Set on one panel and then a bowtie from the Bowtiful Stamp Set on the other in Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next, I stamped “It’s your birthday” from the Eat Cake Stamp Set on the panel with balloons and “big boy today” from Big Day Stamp Set on the panel with the bowties. Next, I outlined the stamped sentiments where they overlapped the stamped images with a white gel pen. Lastly, I stamped the sentiments again in Like a Pro but slightly off-set to create a shadow and then mounted the panels onto a top-folding A2 white card base using foam tape and adhesive tape.

Cards 3 and 4

First, I stamped the backgrounds exactly how I stamped my first two cards the only difference is one panel was 4.25x5.5. I then stamped sentiments from the Big Day Stamp Set on both panels in Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next, I stamped images from the Big Day Stamp Set (cake, ice cream cone, and stars) and Stocking Stamp Set (present) around the sentiments on the panels. Then I stamped the sentiments again in Like a Pro but slightly off-set to create a shadow. Lastly, I trimmed the larger panel to 4x5.25 and adhered it to a top-folding A2 black card base and adhered the smaller panel to a top-folding A2 white card base with foam tape and tape adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks so much for stopping by!
