Hooray! It’s Your Day! Hey friends! Marj here and I have an easy card to share with you today. What card is the easiest to make and always make sure you have a ton? I bet you have and I can name a few. Birthday, Congratulations, Thinking of You, Hello, etc.
Today I’ll be sharing a birthday card using the Many Happy Returns Photopolymer Stamp. I started out by making a background using the Stamping Off technique with one of the balloons. Initially, I started with Color Hive – Hyde Park then stamped it onto clean paper then to my card panel. I scattered them all over to achieve several of one color. Then, I repeated the same way with the Color Hive -Tartan Teal and Color Hive – Coral Keys until the whole card panel is covered.
As you can see, the outcome of each color looks light and it’s like a mixed media which I was really aiming for that look. As a matter of fact, the Color Hive Inks pad colors are pretty bold this way you have a way to lighten it up a bit with the Stamping Off technique. This technique is so easy to do especially if you only have a few collections of Ink pads. I love how raw it looks and oh so pretty!
I absolutely will make a batch of birthday cards like this and just change the sentiment. So, so easy and just a few materials to use. Next, I added strong glue at the back of my panel and adhered it onto my card base that measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I let it dry for a bit.
For my sentiment, I used the Foilable Simple Sayings – Simple Celebration which matches the Many Happy Returns Photopolymer Stamp Set. The Simple Sayings are a great addition to your crafting and cardmaking! You can use one or two to combine them together. I wanted to keep it simple so I use my punch and added some strips of thick cardstock to adhere to the card front. I added a few embellishments from my stash and we’re done.
