Happy YOU Day with Crafty Meraki

I am so excited to be on the Crafty Meraki blog and over here, sharing this cute Birthday Card, showcasing the Celebrate You Stamp Set along with the Party Time 6×6 Stencil and Peridot Opal Gems.

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Place the Celebrate You stamp image inside the MISTI Stamping Tool and stamp a few times on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2.
  • Use Copic Multi-liner to draw the branch and a few leaves.  [Designer tip: I drew the branch and leaves so that the image did not look like it was floating in the air!]
  • Color the images in with Spectrum Noir TriBlend Brush Markers.
  • Stamp the same image on some masking paper and fussy-cut with precision snips. Adhere on the card panel.
  • Prepare the Party Time 6×6 Stencil by spraying some Pixie Spray and let it dry for about half an hour.
  • Place the stencil on top of the colored panel.
  • Use some blending brushes and a few dye inks to ink-up the panel.  I listed all the inks on the supply list below for ease of reference.
  • Use the same blending brushes and the same dye inks to add up more color to the front panel.  [Designer tip: make sure you are applying the colors gently so that you would have a smooth blend of colors.]
  • Use some tweezers to remove the masking paper.
  • Stamp the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink.  Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set using the heating tool.
  • Finish the card design by adhering some Peridot Opal Gems to the card and use some white gel pen to add some stars and dots for added interest and texture.

I hope you like the card today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked for your convenience.  Thanks for stopping by today, and happy stamping!
