Birthday Card

Hello. I have a card for this week’s Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge: Using vellum to soften or show off your background stamping.

Here is my card:

47

I took a panel and stamped the background with the Splat stamp set. I wanted one of the sentiments to stick out, so I stamped it in a different color and used a Limitless Layers Circles die cut to cut out the vellum just over that part. 🙂 I did a card similar to this a while ago…and I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. I have since lost that card on my MANY inspiration boards, LOL. But you can look me up on Pinterest, Lauren Anderson, and you should be able to see it on one of my many card boards. LOL!

As for adhering the vellum, I used the washi tape you see at the top and bottom to “secure” it. I say secure lightly because it’s pretty flappy, but that’s what I was going for, so if you like that look, there you go 🙂

Hope you like it!

Hello there, Muse! They sure do have a fun card up this week! Here it is,

69Isn’t it so bright and happy? I really like it 🙂 Here is how I was inspired,

I decided to use die cuts instead of paint or ink 🙂

I have been trying to figure out how people are doing the stamping on the die cuts and the stamping on the card and getting them to match up. I was seriously racking my brain and trying to figure it out. I came up with die cutting my 3 birthday dies first, stamping the sentiment on the card itself, then placing some clear acetate (left over from some new stamps) over the card, placing the die cuts in the arrangement I wanted, then stamping the sentiment again, making sure it lined up with the card. It actually wasn’t too difficult and didn’t take up too much time. 🙂

Hope you like it!

I have another card today 🙂 This time for the OLS Challenge #5: Flowers. Here is my take,

45I finally broke down and bought some watercolor paper. It’s not real expensive stuff, just the Michael’s brand, but I thought I’d try it. One of the Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday videos showed a technique using stamping and then brushing the water all over the stamping to soften it up. She used watercolor paper in the video and it blended better than just regular cardstock. So, I just had to go out and get some watercolor paper! LOL! I really LOVE how this turned out and have since made several other cards with this technique, including this one for my Mommy,
