Happy Birthday Jason

November 10, 2017

My son-in-law celebrated his birthday recently and I haven’t shared the card I made for him with you.  This card again uses the Stampin’ Blends and the Colour Me Happy stamp set.  Have you got your blends and this fabulous stamp set yet?  You know you can delay placing your order as this stamp set is only while stocks last.  I stamped Whisper White card with each of the lanterns from the Colour Me Happy stamp set using Memento Tuxedo ink.  I actually used a masked a couple of the images so that I could stamp them on top of each other.  I wanted it to look like Chinese New Year when they let the lanterns drift up into the sky.  I coloured the lanterns using the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends and also used the Colour Lifter to add a little more lightness to some of the lanterns.  Once I had coloured in all of the lanterns, I cut the Whisper White card using the Happy Birthday Thinlit Die.   The stamped card is attached to Night of Navy card and then scored and folded thick Whisper White card.  I also cut Night of Navy card twice using the same thinlit die.  I used one of the Night of Navy die cuts to position all the little background pieces.  Once I had all the background pieces in place, I attached the two Night of Navy die cuts to each other and attached the stamped die cut on the top.  The stacked die cuts are attached back into the stamped card.  I’m pretty sure you call this the eclipse technique and you will find all sorts of amazing tutorials out there to help you create this kind of card.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the two lantern images across the top of Whisper White card and coloured the images using the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.  The stamped panel is attached inside the scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  Normally I wouldn’t use a second layer inside a Thick Whisper White card base, but when you use the Stampin’ Blends, they bleed through the card slightly, so you do need a second layer to hide the back of the coloured card.

Jason liked his card and hopefully you do too.

Bye for now,
