Welcome to our Scrap ‘N Stamp March 2021 BIRTHDAY BASH BLOG HOP! We’re so glad you’re here to join us in celebrating the birthdays of both SNS & our bold boss lady, Raya! Along with a link up of a bunch of fabulous birthday cards, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to one reader who leaves us a comment and having a 10% off Birthday Sale on birthday related stamps & dies (cakes, candles, sentiments, etc). The sale ends Monday at midnight EST.
Today I’m sharing a card that is fairly easy to put together for one of those last minute occasions… easy to customize for the recipient and assemble quickly. The star of the show is my current fave birthday die, Birthday Wishes by MFT. This pretty script works well with a variety of images and can also handle being the star of the show. I wanted to play some more with Kitsch Flamingo, so I paired it with some yellows & oranges (including Crackling Campfire).
I cut the die from a glossy adhesive backed Cardstock, then used Distress Paint & a foam applicator to add some ombre shading over it. Once it was dry, I adhered it to a circle I’d die cut from book print and inked around the edges with Kitsch Flamingo. It didn’t stand out quite as well as I wanted it to, so I added a bit of shading with a black watercolor pencil, which I blended out with a spica glitter pen for a bit of extra shimmer.
For the background, I stamped a large floral design (Glorious Bouquet by Tim Holtz) in a couple shades of Distress Oxide Ink on Kraft (oxide ink & Kraft will forever be one of my favorite combos!) and mounted it on a peachy card base, which I also inked with Kitsch Flamingo. I wanted a bit more depth, so I also splattered the entire background with Crackling Campfire Distress Oxide Spray.
I know my card is pretty simple, but I’ve seen some peeks and I think you’re going to be inspired by what you see next! Here’s the full hop order:
