A Special Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to this month’s InspireInk blog hop.

The theme this month is “Milestone Birthday”

I have to say this was a bit tricky, I really miss the Large Numbers for this sort of card.

Instead, I have used the small numbers in the Pick a Pennant stamp set and used it like confetti in the background.

I started with the large Happy Birthday from the One for All set, stamping this with versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.

This was repeated with the little numbers.

The Pick a Pennant stamp set also had some cute stars which I decided to include in the design.

I wanted these to be yellow so I applied some Pineapple Punch over the card using a sponge. Once dry, the stars were added using versamark ink and embossed.

To complete the card, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Highland Heather inks were sponged over the embossing.

Excess ink was removed from the embossing with a barely damp cloth.

For some added interest I spritzer some water over the piece, lifting a little of the ink. Texture was added with the Scattered Sequins embossing folder.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Cue the Confetti

Good Morning!

Welcome to another InspireInk blog hop! This is a group of crafty friends giving inspiration based on a theme.

I have taken advantage of the bright new In Colours for my design and nothing says fun better than a shaker card!

The Pick a Pennant stamp set was used to add banners across to top of the card base using Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Grapefruit Grove ink.

The shaker element is made using the layering squares framelits. I decided to use a double frame cut from Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch card stock. Iridescent sequins were used in the shaker.

The sentiment was stamped with Blueberry Bushel ink. The Tailored Tag punch was used to shape the end.

Finally, the Balloon Bouquet punch was used to cut balloons in all five colours and arranged on the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Hello – Just Add Ink #410

Good Morning!

The challenge this week is to use this colourful image as inspiration for a project.

You can see what the design team have made by clicking here!

For me, it was the colours that stood out, along with the bunting and the word ‘hello’.

And this is what I came up with.

The deep green of the wall in the image was mirrored by the Tranquil Tide card base. Clear Versamark ink was used to stamp bunting from the new Pick a Pennant stamp set across the background.

I picked out Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and the brand new Petal Pink inks to stamp more bunting across a piece of white card stock. This was layered onto Berry Burst and Tempting Turquoise card stock.

I used the Lined Alphabet stamp set to create the word ‘hello’. This was stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with gold powder. The letters were coloured with Bermuda Bay watercolour pencil.

To finish the card, I took the idea of the spots in the background, and added Tranquil Tide pearls from the set of Artisan Pearls.

I hope you enjoyed this project. Some of the supplies used are listed below and are available from 1st June.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Stampin’!
