I used the new 2015 Sale-a-bration stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Big Day and the new Chalkboard Paper and Inks to create my card to share today.
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #167.
I started by running a panel of Coastal Cabana card stock through my Big Shot twice with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder (available Jan 6). I knew that the seam would be covered by the tag, so I was able to emboss the panel twice without worrying about a crease down the middle. Then I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Strawberry Slush Card Stock with SNAIL and to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut a strip from the Stacked With Love DSP Stack (available Jan 6) and punched both ends with the Hexagon Punch, then adhered the strip to the card front with SNAIL. I cut a 2″ strip from the Chalkboard Paper (available Jan 6) and punched the top with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. Then I wrapped a strip of Stacked With Love Designer Washi Tape around the tag.
I stamped the sentiment from the Big Day stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 6) in Aquamarine ColorBox Chalk Ink (available Jan 6) and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Then I stamped the candle image in Rose Coral ColorBox Chalk Ink (available Jan 6) using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement and heat setting between each imageas well. I pulled three strands of Coastal Cabana Thick Baker’s Twine through the tag punch and tied them with a strand of Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine, then adhered the tag to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the ice cream sentiment from the Big Day stamp set in Rose Coral ColorBox Chalk Ink on a separate panel of Chalkboard Paper and heat set it. I punched the sentiment out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it over a Scallop Oval Punch from Strawberry Slush card stock. I adhered the oval sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, the cake image in Coastal Cabana ink and the candles in Strawberry Slush ink (using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement) on a Whisper White panel inside the card. I colored in the flames on the candles with my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker.
