Hello crafty friends!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted or had the chance to craft, so I’m happy to be back! How have you all been? I hope you’re all well!
I’m jumping back in this week with a birthday card made with MFT stamps, the “Picture Perfect Party Animals” stamp set is adorable, I couldn’t resist these parrots being the crazy bird lady I am!
I secured some white Neenah card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped the parrot image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured the image using alcohol markers, adding highlights with a white gel pen and some markings around the parrots’ eyes using a pencil. I used my trimmer to trim out the box for crisp straight lines.
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and used the largest from the die set to cut a panel from black card stock. I cut a third panel using Waffle Flower’s “Nesting Postage” die set. I used the Heffy Doodle “UnbeLEAFable” stencil with Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks to create my patterned panel, which I finished up with some metallic paint splatter. I blended my white rectangle panel with the same two inks I used for my patterned panel, I used the Picket Fence Studio “Life Changing” Blender Brushes for all of my blending. I adhered my black and smooth blended panels together using Scor-Tape, popped up my patterned panel in the centre using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and popped up my image also.
For my sentiment I took a piece of card stock I had left over from cutting my panels out earlier, secured it in my Misti and stamped using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I adhered it to some black card stock using Scor-Tape and trimmed it down to size so I have a thin border all the way around. I popped it up below my image and adhered my panel to my card base.
Thanks for reading lovelies! I’ll see you next week with another card!
