Hello friends! Thanks for joining me for this fabulous Heffy Doodle Birthday Blog Hop. There’s tons of inspiration today throughout the Hop showcasing the new June 2018 release. I have three cards to share with you using the adorable Party Palooza Stamp Set:
My first card is this fabulous birthday cake card. Oh the BLING!! It makes me soooo happy! I stamped the layered cake randomly on Copic-Friendly cardstock. I then masked off the top of the cakes and stamped again with the candle. I used Copic Markers to color the cakes and frosting. (Strawberry- RV13 RV21; Chocolate- E35 E37 E47 V12; Vanilla YR20 E21 BG23; Plates- W1 W3, C1 C3)
I picked out 3 different smiley faces and stamped the cakes with them. I trimmed the cardstock down and added double-sided adhesive to the back. With a fine-point metal tip, I applied liquid glue to the frosting. I sprinkled transparent glitter on the vanilla and chocolate cakes, and platinum gold glitter to the strawberry cakes. I added Crystal Glaze for shine to the candle flames, and set that aside to dry . Once the cardfront was dry, I adhered it to an A2 top-folding cardbase, and added the stamped and heat-embossed sentiment.
For this card, I kept it very simple. I used the balloon stamp to stamp 7 balloons in a random horizontal line. I stamped the sentiment, used a T-ruler and black pen to draw the strings, and then colored the balloons in a rainbow order. (Red- R29 R27 R17; Orange- Y17 YR16 YR07; Green- YG11 YG06 YG05; Blue- B00 B02 B05; Purple- V12 V15 V17; Pink RV04 RV13 RV21) I trimmed the cardfront down, and attached it to a top-folding A2 cardbase. For a finishing touch, I used a shimmer pen on the blue balloon, and added Crystal Glaze for shine. I then used Green Apple Crystal Drops for added color.
For my last card, I made a little scene. I stamped the party hats first. I masked them, then stamped the middle balloon. I masked that, and stamped the other two balloons. I added faces, then Copic colored them, using the above combos for pink, blue, and orange. Next I stamped the cupcake, masked off the top, and stamped the candle. I colored the cake vanilla, and the paper liner purple. (V12 V15) I drew lines on the cup, and shaded with Faber-Castell Polychromos #160. For the frosting, I used pencils again, #155, 153, 154. For the top icing dollop, I added liquid glue and transparent glitter. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment, and cut 2 thin strips of gold glitter paper for accents. After adhering everything together, I attached the cardfront to an A2 top-folding cardbase. I added Crystal Glaze to the flame for my finishing touch.
I had a lot of fun putting these cards together, and received a lot of approving high-fives from my supportive son. (He kept checking on my progress throughout the evening. It was so sweet.)
