Happiest Birthday

Hello everyone. Today I am sharing with my final card as a DT with Cardabilities. As always, the sketch created by Karan is amaizng.

For my design, I pulled out a Stampin' Up! stamp set which I love. I stamped the image using StazOn onto Stampin' Up! watercolour paper. I used my Stampin' Up! markers and a blender pen to colour in the image. To age the image to match my patterned paper, I used a blending tool and distress ink to go over the image.

For the other elements, I used a scallop punch to create the scallop edge to the centre panel. I used some die cuts to frame the flowers. I used a fishtail banner die to die cut the sentiment. To create the frame, I simply traced around it. The centre image plus the sentiment are attached with foam tape, to add some dimension.


Paper: Glitz Design Pretty In Pin, Stampin' Up! very vanilla and watercolour paper

Stamp: Stampin' Up! Apothecary Art

Ink: Distress Ink antique linen, StazOn jet black, Memento, Stampin' Up! markers

Other: Fiskars scallop punch, Hooked on Craft flowers, Sizzix little leaves, Memeory Box elegant scrollwork, Die-namics fishtail flags, Stampin' Up! framelits labels collection.

I hope that you'll join us at Cardabilities this week. Be sure to link back your completed cards back to Cardabilities.

I would also like to say thank you to Karan for allowing me to be part of the Cardabilities team. Be sure to see the designs from the new design team, and I'm sure you'll be blown away by their talent and creativity.
