Boy, I'm loving my Fishy Friends stamp set by Stampin' Up - I chose green metallic card stock as my base. I used Fiskars textured plate called Filigree and embossed blue card stock before adding it to the card. I tore a piece of vellum sheet to give it a rough look, then attaching it to the card using vellum tape. Vellum tape allows you to attached vellum on any surface and the tape won't show through. If you love working with vellum, I recommend this tape. Then I used double sided tape to attach the baby blue ribbon. I stamped one of the fishy friends with watercolour pencils then I added glitter to the image. I mounted this image to baby blue card stock then attached it to the card. I stamped happy birthday onto white card stock and used Fiskars tag punch and punch around the sign, then with Fiskars eyelet setter I attach an eyelet onto the tag before attaching tag to the card with adhesive tape.
I used papers from a cardmaking magazine's, I used white card stock for my base then added light blue on top. I cut a small darker blue piece of card stock and attached it to the bottom of card. From the magazine I used a a strip of patterned paper and cutting around the flamingo and attaching it to the card. I used double sided tape for the pipe cleaner as legs for the bird. Happy birthday was stamped and mounted with 3d foam, two gems were added. Liquid glue was used to attach the white feathers and pink gem together onto the card. Let it dry overnight and walla you have a Flamingo birthday card. Give it a go!
With Stampin' Up Fishy Friends I found making boys and mens card a lot easier. I stamped Happy Happy Birthday from the All-Year Cheer II by Stampin' Up directly onto the card. I used my Coluzzle to cut out two circles with different coloured card stock I used the watercolor wonder crayons from Stampin' Up for the fish then I added some glitter glue. After stamping and colouring the image I cut around the fish and attached it to the card with double sided tape.
This card is quick and easy to do with white card stock I stamped Happy Fathers Day with Kaleidacolor Rainbow Inkpad-Blue Breeze. Then with printed paper this one I received in
Use VersaMark ink pad and stamp Happy Fathers Day onto the green card stock.
|Cut green ribbon to fit across the card and use double sided tape to cover one side of ribbon.|
|Extra ribbon on both ends so you can either cut at each end or you can fold ribbon over the other side of card.|
|Use 3D foam tape onto the back of the bird to give it a raised appearance.|
Then mount bird onto card.
This card is for my dad who loves birds especially pigeons so I thought to use Stampin' Up - Touch of Nature and if you like to know how I made this card I have added it in my Tutorials. So get stamping for fathers day and have fun.
