I am entering my card in Simon Says Monday challenge - Make new friends, but keep the old...
I really like this challenge because I like to buy new products but at the same time I am determined to use what I have too. So I am using a new stamp along with my old techniques. :)
The first step in making a cute card is having great stamps to choose from:
cake stamp - Damn...you're old
I chose a pennant design as the main focal point to my card, stamping one sentiment over the top of the image. For a little extra flair I cut a small portion of the tail of the pennant off which I'll reattach back on top of the pennant.
After adhering the cut off tail to the pennant I then matted it and the second sentiment with pink paper.
I used watercolors as the base layer of colors for a translucent look and then glued the second sentiment over the top of the pennant adding a small matching pink gemstone to the cut out piece.
Next I added another layer of colors with my PITT pens for the candles and little dots of stickles gives the flames some extra umph.
I combined some pattern papers underneath for texture playing up on the pink, blue and yellow color combinations.
I am submitting this to SinCity Stamps for the second part of their Design Team call. They have an awesome collection of stamps, masks and stencils, plus a whole lot more! I think you should check out their store, I certainly have!
