Smooched Happy Birthday

My card today is one I created sometime ago while having a bit of a play with Stamp Pads & Dies.  Mind you, they are not normally colours I play with but I do know I was happy with it when finished.

To create my card, I smeared  Daffodil Delight & Tempting Turquoise Stamp Pads onto a piece of A4 Plastic Sleeve before spritzing with water.  I then grabbed a piece of Watercolour Paper & pressed it down into the Ink & smooched it around a little.  I repeated this a number of times until I was happy with the coverage.  The piece was then put aside to dry or you could dry it with your Heat Tool.

I cut the Butterfly from Basic Black Cardstock using the “Butterflies” Thinlits & running through the Big Shot.  I repeated the same process but this time with the large flower from the “May Flowers” Thinlits.

Once the “smooching” was dry, I layered it onto a piece of Daffodil Delight Card before layering onto the Base Card – Basic Black.  Both the Flower & Butterfly were the adhered to the top of the smooched card with Fine-Tip Glue Pen so that the die pieces looked like they were cut from the same Thinlit.

I stamped “Happy Birthday” from “Thoughtful Banners” Stamp Set direct onto a piece of Tempting Turquoise Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, cut it down to size, cut into a Banner Shape the Left Hand End & adhered to the Card Front.

To pop the card a little, I decided that it needed a bit of “bling” so I adhered a row of Rhinestone Basic Jewels down the centre of the Butterfly, created her Antennas, added one to the centre of the flower & then randomly scattered a coupled around the card.  I was amazed how the card seemed to pop after doing this.

Hope you liked my card today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
