Stampin’ Up! created coordinating dies to the Sale-A-Bration Happy Birthday to You stamp set in the Coordination Product Release for February 4 – March 31, 2020, while supplies last. There is a die that cuts the flowers from the cake which is what I played with tonight. The card was CASEd from New Zealand Demonstrator, Angela Meiritz-Reid.
- The card base is Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. I embossed a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece with the Scripty Embossing Folder and adhered to with Tombow Liquid Adhesive to the front.
- I stamped the top portion of the cake with the flowers onto Whisper White Cardstock with VersaMark Ink, sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
- I used a Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker to highlight the flowers and then followed with a medium tip Aqua Painter to spread the ink and watercolor the images. I repeated with Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I find this gives me more control and definition with the small detail stamps than picking up ink with the aqua painter.
- I used the dies to cut out the flowers and then my Snips to separate the two from the single one. I also cut the berry sprig and leaves from Vellum, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple and Garden Green Cardstock scraps.
- I adhered the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I placed a puddle of Liquid Adhesive on my Silicone Mat and touched the bottom of the leaf and sprig cut outs to it and them tucked them into place. I found it helpful to use an acrylic block to weight it in place while the glue set.
- I added a small Pearl Basic Jewel to the center of each flower.
- The sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a Whisper White Cardstock scrap, cut out with snips and adhered with Liquid Adhesive.
- I stamped a portion of the cake and flowers in the corner of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock and the Happy Birthday sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink.
- I touched the flower centers and the flower berries with an Aqua Painter for the watercolor fill.
- I layered the left edge with a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock, adhered with Snail.
