Craftie Cafe - Happy Birthday (Video)

Hi everyone, today I'm back for Craftie Cafe and I'll be using the Hay There stamp set from Lawn Fawn to create a birthday card. I'll also be using the Tim Holtz Dotted Stencil as well as some Ranger Crackle Paste for my background. 

To begin my card today, I started off with my background, since I knew that it would take a while to dry. First, I took a piece of watercolour cardstock and taped it down to my non-stick sheet. I then added my dotted stencil over top. Next, I added some of my Texture Paste onto my non-stick mat and then added some of my Distress Oxide Ink to the side as well. I used a palette knife and mixed it together. I used Peacock Feathers first and added that over the top of my stencil, then I repeated the same thing for Twisted Citron, but added that at the bottom of my stencil. I then set it aside to dry and crackle. Then, I moved onto stamping. I stamped out my images from Hay There and also the balloon from Party Animal. I coloured them using Copic Markers and then cut them out using the coordinating dies. 

(Copics Used: E43, E44, E47 / E53, E55, E57, E59 / R81, R83, R85 / R000, R00, R20 / W00, W0, W2, W5, W7 / Y11, Y15, Y35 / YR12, YR18 / E50, E51, E53 / BG11, BG32, BG23)

At this point, my paste was pretty much dry, I finished it off with a heat tool and laid out my images over the top. I used some flat and foam adhesive to adhere them down to the centre. For my sentiment, I white heat embossed 'Happy Birthday' onto a thin black strip of cardstock and popped it up on the left hand side of my card. Lastly, I added some green striped paper from Really Rainbow onto my card base and adhered my panel directly over the top with more fun foam. 

That finished up my card for today, I hope you enjoyed. The video is linked down below for you all to watch. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and watching today, be sure to check back as I'll be using the same stamp set again for a different occasion of card soon.

  1. What a cool birthday card. Thanks a ton for these details. I love to create such cards and other crafts. Recently threw an extra ordinary royal themed birthday bash for my twins at the rental garden party venue and all of my handmade d├ęcor had got so much praise from everyone.
