Party Time

Monday, February 1, 2016

Hi all!  This card was really fun to make, but had lots of steps.  I first had to decipher where the underneath part of the word "party" would be.  Then, using the Lots of Dots stamp set, I stamped a bunch of little circles to look like confetti.  On the top layer, after die cutting the word party, I stamped the balloons and confetti.  I then added dimensional adhesive and topped the card with the white cardstock that has the word "party" cut out of it.

I used a copic multi-liner pen to draw string onto the balloon.  The word time was stamped using an alpha set from Lawn Fawn.

When I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it.  It's so versatile and can be used for any occasion. Plus, there are so many options the possibilities are endless.  I wanted to keep the card really natural looking so I used a background stamp and white embossed woodgrain.
I watercolored the plants using distress markers.  I heat embossed my sentiment on vellum using black embossing powder.  I like how some of the plants are in the pot and another is behind it.  I think it give dimension to the focal point.


bokeh bunny

I have been wanting to do a bokeh background for ages and decided to pair it with this sweet bunny image from Mama Elephant's Honey Bunny set.  I made a rough mask to cover the lower half of the card below the sentiment from the Avery Elle Oh Happy Day sentiment set.  To extend that sentiment across the card, I just used a memento pen.

I then used the SSS Lots of Dots stamps set to make the bokeh circles in various warn tones.  The bunny was colored with copic markers and the green below the bunny is some cracked pistachio distress ink. 

The sequins added the perfect finishing touch!  Hope you enjoyed.
