CAS Colours & Sketches – Challenge # 319 – YAY – Happy Birthday

Hello friends!


It’s the last and fifth Tuesday in April today, that means it’s going to be a double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. I hope you can join us this week for the fun challenge.

I made this card by using My Favorite Things’ Yay for You Stamp Set. I started my card by making the background first. I ink blended Festive Berries, Candied Apple, Tumbled Glass and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide Inks onto my A2 Bristol Smooth white card base and set it aside for it to dry. I used the Spellbinder Oval Die to die cut the window frame from a piece of #110 pound Neenah White Card Stock and I trimmed it down to 3.75″ by 5.5″.

I placed the window frame onto the background and positioned the YAY sentiment in the middle, making sure it’s right in the center before I stamped it with Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink. I also stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto a strip of white Neenah card stock. Next, I stamped the balloons with a Copic friendly ink, Hero Arts’ Intense Black Ink onto a piece of white Neenah card stock and colored it with Copic Markers (B12 and R24). I fussy cut out the balloons. Cutting strings were a bit difficult. At this moment, I wish I had the matching dies to go with it.

To finish the card, I adhered the window frame onto my background card base and popped up the Happy Birthday sentiment and balloons with foam tape.
