on how this card was made.

Tweetie Birthday


Ink up your solid stamp images onto Stampin Up Whisper White card stock and press down firmly.  

I found using Stampin Up card stock perfect for solid stamping.


To make cutting easier I separated the images first using paper cutting scissors, scissors that are not razer sharp will end up a bit messy .

I use Stampin Up stamping set Good Friend and Petal Pizzazz.

When cutting your image out get as close as possible to your image and move the card stock not the scissors around your image when cutting, you will found this method easier and you will get a better look.


Once you have cut all your pieces out it should look this.  I used Stampin Up Classic Ink Pads - Green Galore, Pixie Pink Real Red for the flowers, Chocolate Chip for the legs, Tempting Turquoise for the bird and a Orange Marker for the Beak.


Before adding your stamped images onto your Stampin Up Whisper White card stock tie a ribbon right around and form a bow.


While the solid stamped images are not attached this is the perfect time to play around and move yours images around your white card stock and once you are happy with it, use double sided tape.

I also used 3D foam tape onto the flowers to give the raised affected.


Add your Happy Birthday stamp and then add double sided tape to the white card stock and mount to the base of your card using Stampin Up Pixie Pink card stock.

Snappy Birthday

Stamp with black ink onto white card stock and with red and black markers colour in the crab.


Trip around the image and colour the background with light blue and yellow markers, using Glu tack onto the sandy image to add Glitter powder.


Then with a pair of scissors ruffle the edges.


Using double sided tape at the back of this card to hold the end bits of the ribbon.


Mount the blue card stock onto the base of the card with double sided take and use 3D foam tape onto the image then add to the card.


Add a present to the image then stamp snappy birthday onto white card stock and use yellow chalk, layer this with two coloured card stock-red and blue and mount onto card with 3D foam tape.

  1. Ink a patterned stamp, such as one of our background stamps (Figure 1).
  2. Press a solid, uninked stamp against the patterned stamp, transferring the pattern to the solid stamp (Figure 2).
  3. Stamp the image on card stock.
  1. Try the technique in reverse. Follow the same steps as above, only use the patterned stamp to create an image, instead of the solid stamp.  In this case, the goal is not to add ink to the solid stamp but to take away ink from the pattern for a tone-on-tone look.
