For the first two cards I started with using the amazing stencil again. I took two pieces of white card stock and spread Dreamweaver embossing paste over them. Then I set them aside to dry. Now I took a third piece of card stock and blended Fossilized Amber and Candied Apple to create a sunset like scene. Now I used the Winnie & Walter circle stamps to create a cute pattern in the middle of the distressed background. But instead of leaving it like it was, I cut it directly in the middle. Scary? Yes! But it had to be done 😉 I actually wanted to heat emboss the “Happy Birthday” sentiment in white, but the embossing powder I used was clear. Who would have known (it didn’t say clear on the packaging…). Anyway, I still liked it, so I popped it up on black card stock and adhered everything together.
Btw, I have the idea from Catherine Pooler’s Pinterest account.
For the third card I used an image that I colored a few days ago. I found that little monster as a freebie on Jessa Feig’s blog. Go check it out, she has a lot of fun stuff over there.
For this card I randomly stamped the circles in MFT Orange Zest and Simon Says Stamp Rosie Cheeks. Then I added some inlays, stamped in MFT Poppy and Simon Says Stamp Teeny Bikini. Now I added some the circle sayings, again stamped in Versafine, and finished it up with some stars in the blank spots. I die-cut the panel using the wonky stitched rectangles from MFT and adhered it a little crooked to the card base. I was thinking back and forth, if I should add a bigger sentiment, but decided to leave it as is at the end.
These are my cards made with the latest Stamp of Approval collection. I hope you enjoyed my Stamp of Approval week and consider joining with Catherine Pooler’s next collection.
