happiest of birthdays…


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

08.18.18….. Welcome to the weekend, my stampin’ friends!  I had planned to make this card last month, around the Fourth of July, but I got busy working on other projects and just never got around it.  Better late than never, right?  While I used a patriotic color combo on this card, it’s a unique birthday card for any time of year!

I dry embossed a Silver Foil Sheet, using the Subtle Embossing Folder (…one of my favs!), and adhered it to a Whisper White card base.  Using my Aqua Painter, I added water to a piece of Watercolor Paper.  I then sprinked on two colors of Brusho Crystal Colour (Prussian Blue and Brillant Red).  Using my Aqua Painter again, I swirled the color around, yet left some the the “sprinkes” unblended, to add some extra texture.

The background was heat-embossed, using a Versamark Pad, Silver Stampin’ Emboss, and a stamp from the Timeless Textures set.  I added a layer of Night of Navy Cardstock and then adhered it to the card base.  I also heat-embossed the sentiment (from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set) on Whisper White Cardstock, and die cut it with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Before adhering it with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals, I tucked in some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and a bit of Silver Metallic Thread.  For a little more bling, I added a Clear Faceted Gem, along with a couple of Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

TIP:  To add some extra WOW to your project, pair two (…or more) techniques together.  Think Brusho Color Crystals and heat-embossing…dry-embossing and watercoloring…heat-embossing and Stampin’ Blends.  The possibilities are endless!
