Picture Perfect Birthday - Happiest of Birthdays by Tammy C. Wilson

06.02.18… The wonderful variety of Designer Series Paper that Stampin’ Up! offers in each and every new catalog is always something I truly look forward to. And… the new Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 catalog does not disappoint! On this latest creation of mine, I paired a piece of the new Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper along with some Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. Both of this paper collections come in a handy 6″ x 6″ size, which I love!

Using the confetti stamp from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set (…one of my favs!), I used Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (along with a Versamark Pad) to create the background pattern (on the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper). I distressed a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, along with a piece of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, and layered them together.

I used one of the Stitched Shape Framelits to die cut the sentiment (also from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set) , which was also heat-embossed. I then used an Aqua Painter along with my Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin’ Pad to add a wash of color. A bit Crumb Cake ink was used to add some speckling as well. I tucked in some Whisper White Polka Tulle Ribbon, along with a bit of Gold Metallic Thread. Underneath, I layered a scalloped oval, which was die cut from Vellum Cardstock (using the Layering Ovals Framelits). For an extra bit of glitz and glam, I sprinkled a few Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and added a Tinted Faceted Button. Gotta make a few more of these cards so that I can “grab-n-go” next time a birthday pops up!

TIP: Heat-embossing isn’t just for solid-colored cardstock. Don’t be afraid to use this fun technique on our Designer Series Paper as well. 05.31.18_TH_VideoCover_AC2018StopMotion_Demo
