I used the Stampin’ Up! Build A Birthday stamp set to create my card for The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #251.
Be sure to stop by The Paper Players blog to check out the awesome projects created by the other Design Team Members. And be sure to play along too! 🙂
The colors for my card were inspired by ColourQ #296.
I started by stamping the ink splatter images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Marina Mist card stock. I sprinkled the images with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them, then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Night of Navy card stock with SNAIL and to a Soft Sky card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut four circles from the Silver Foil Sheets with two different Circles Collection Framelits Dies and set the circles aside. I used my 2″ and 2-1/2″ Circle Punches to punch around the “negatives” of the die cuts. This gave me really thin circles that I adhered to the front of the card with a little scotch tape (under the area where the focal image would be adhered).
I stamped the candle images from the Build A Birthday Photopolymer stamp set in Soft Sky, Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I cut the images out with a Circles Collection Framelits Die, then adhered the circle to a Circles Collection Framelits die cut from Night of Navy card stock. I trimmed the edge off with my Stampin’ Trimmer, then adhered the layered circles to the card front with SNAIL.
I adhered a strip from the Silver Foil Sheets over the layered circles with SNAIL, then stamped the sentiment from the Build a Birthday stamp set in Marina Mist ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock. I punched the end of the sentiment strip with the Banner Triple and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL. I pulled two strands of silver thread that I’d pulled from the Silver Baker’s Twine through a Soft Sky button from the Subtles Designer Buttons Pack and tied a knot, then adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot.
I stamped the ink splatter images in Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Night of Navy inks across a Whisper White panel inside the card.
