Happy weekend! I got to sleep in this morning to catch up on much lost sleep. Yesterday I had time to craft and I wanted to do my favourite technique of ink blending. I also played with couple of new release stamp sets and dies from Taylored Expressions to make this birthday card.
I have used Taylored Expressions dye inks to do ink blending for the background. The colours I used are Pink Champagne, Strawberry Milkshake, Mint Julep and Cookie Monster. A lot of back and forth blending to build up the colour intensity. I love taking that time to get beautiful coverage and blending. The result brings a sense of achievement and pride Lol! I then spatter the panel with white Mr. Huey and Gold Colorshine from Heidi Swapp and left it to dry.
I then stamped the candles from Make a Wish Stamp set and Die combo using the same colour dye inks from Taylored Expressions and mini Misti. I did stamped them three times as I wanted them a bit darker than the background colour. They are all then die cut using the coordinating dies. I die cut the background using Frame in Frame 2 cutting plate. I used the largest die from the set. This is a frame die but I am using both the inner panel as well. I adhered the candles on the inner panel using foam adhesives and stamped the sentiment using Black Hybrid ink from Taylored Expressions. The sentiment is from Bright Birthday stamp set. I would heat emboss the sentiment next time as I felt the sentiment was not bright enough. Anyway, I adhered the scallop panel using foam adhesives on the Oreo card base and flush glued the inner panel. I also die cut a few sequins using Little Bits: Sequins Confetti dies and gold glitter paper. I adhered them as shown in the picture.
I love how this card turned out and the contrast against the back base. Hope you do too. I have listed all the products I have used on this card below.
