Colorful Birthday Cards

February 08, 2016

Hey everyone! It's Wiebke here and I have two cards for you today!
I wanted to create a colorful birthday card with the two new stamp sets Happy Hoppy and Just Sentiments. But when I tried to combine them, I realized that the Just Sentiments set has so many great bold sentiments that it would be much more nice to them for a single card. Therefore I have two pretty colorful birthday cards today :)


For my bunny card, I stamped out and colored the bunny plus a few balloons. I cut out a small hill mask and used a green and a soft blue Distress Ink color to create a grass hill with a soft touch of a sky. Just mask off one side and sponge with the color over it to get that look, afterwards mask off the other side and do the same with the other color ;) Then I stamped two different parts of sentiment stamps on white cardstock, cut them out and placed them on my card. I think different fonts always add much more interest to a card! Then I took a black fineliner to draw the string of the balloons to the hand of the bunny.


This card was quite an easy one! I saw a very similar card on Pinterest the other day and just HAD to create something in that direction. I just stamped the sentiment with five different Distress Ink colors on a piece watercolor cardstock. But before you stamp them on it, you need to spray a bit of water on the inked stamp. You'll get a more even look and it looks a bit more.. "messy" and "blurred". Always start stamping in the middle of your card (the red one here) - that way, you'll get a perfectly centered image!


I hope you're a bit inspired now! :) Have a great day!
