Happy Celebrations

By | April 18, 2017

We had lots to celebrate last week!  Two birthdays and Easter!!!  Not only did my daughter have her birthday, but so did her boyfriend that she’s been dating for almost a year.  He’s a great kid that we’ve really enjoyed getting to know.

For his birthday card, I used the new Happy Celebrations stamp set and coordinating Celebrations Duo embossing folder.  I again got my inspiration from a card on Pinteret.

I stamped the HAPPY on watercolor paper with Basic Black Archival ink and then watercolored each letter with an ombre design using Old Olive, Dapper Denim, and Pool Party ink.  Afterwards, I cut out each letter out by hand.

I love the big bold letters from this stamp set!

For the background, I embossed the HAPPY on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then, I stamped the images right over the embossing.  To clean up the stamped images, and make them look a little more like dripping paint, I used my Aqua Painter and some clear water to paint over the stamped images.

I adhered the cut out letters over the embossing with dimensionals and then curled the banner with a Bone Folder for a 3-D effect.  This stamp set has really great sayings for all sorts of occasions.

Here’s a look at the inside.  To achieve the multi-color look, I inked up my stamp with Pool Party ink first, then I sponged the Old Olive and Dapper Denim ink directly onto the photopolymer stamp before stamping.  Give the stamp a little huff before stamping to re-moisten the ink.
