Summertime Birthday Treats and Sweets
Hi there Crafty Friends! Emily here with you today for my first blog post as a Pawsome Stamps Design Team Member! I’m super excited to share with you two Sweet Summertime Birthday Cards using the Yummy Extra Scoop and XL Birthday Greetings Stamp Sets.
Red, White & Blue Summertime SweetsI went with a Red, White and Blue summer cookout/picnic color theme for my first card. I stamped the images with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink to Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed the stamped images with clear embossing powder. I water colored the Extra Scoop images with watercolor brush markers (Zig Clean Color Real Brush & Arteza Real Brush Pens) in reds and blues and added extra dimension with a white gel pen. I then arranged & rearranged the ice cream and popsicle images to a white card panel…leaving just enough room to stamp the XL Birthday Greetings HB2U sentiment at the bottom of the panel. I adhered the images to the panel with thin foam tape and liquid adhesive to vary the dimension on the card. To finish the card, I adhered a thin glitter blue card stock frame around the edge of the card panel.
Rainbow Everything Summertime Treats
I love to rainbow everything so of course for my second card, I went with a rainbow color palette of yummy ice creams, sorbets and popsicles. Just like above I used my go-to watercolor image stamping process: VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink, Bristol Smooth paper, Clear Embossing powder and watercolor brush markers.
Using a stamp positioning tool, I stamped the XL Birthday Greetings It’s Your Birthday Treat Yourself sentiment to an A2 white card panel with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink. Above the sentiment, I arranged the yummy treats into rainbow order and used Press ‘N Seal to keep all the images together…which I then flipped over so I could add thin clear tape to secure all the pieces. I added some thin foam tape squares to all the images, removed the Press ‘n Seal and secured the images just above the sentiment. To finish the card, I added the decorated card panel to a black card base.
So there we are friends, two Clean and Simple Sweet Summertime Birthday Cards with bright and cheerful pops of color. Thanks for stopping by and Big Paper Hugs!
