Sending Birthday Hugs & Wishes with LDRS Creative

I am back today to bring you another inspiration, showcasing some new and older stamp sets and dies by LDRS Creative.  Lately, it seems like I’m always running out of birthday cards so I decided to create one to add to my stash of cards. 

To make the card, I die-cut some Neenah Solar white card stock using the outer die from the Floral Foliage Slim Line die set.  I ink-blended this panel using the Magical Skies Stencil (hills & sky) and the Rainy Day stencil (grass), with the Swimming Hole and Pistachios-A-Plenty Hybrid Ink

Next, I stamped the images from the Up & Away Stamp Set with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them in with alcohol markers.  I used the Up & Away coordinating dies to die-cut them out.  I adhered the images on the focal panel with liquid glue, as I didn’t think it needed any dimension. 

Next thing to do is to add a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment/s from the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stack stamp set on some black card stock with the LDRS Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some LDRS White Embossing Powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  Using the Sentiment Stack Coordinating Dies made it possible to die-cut all of the sentiments in one go!  I saved the rest of the sentiment strips and put them inside my stamp pocket so I can use them for future projects! 

I adhered the sentiment onto the card, and added this focal panel on some White Slimline card base.  Finishing the card design, I added more interest to the balloons using white gel pen. Here’s another look: 

I love the colorful balloons and the cute little elephants flying up, up & away!  The magical sky just added that whimsical touch to the overall card design. 

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!
