stampin’ fancy friday – birthday challenge…

03.19.2023…..Happy Sunday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It’s a wonderfully festive “ Birthday Challenge”. Each of our team members created a fancy project with a birthday theme, using products from the current Stampin’ Up catalogs. How fun is that?!?!?

The Sentiment Silhouettes Dies include the cutest little candle dies, and I thought they would be just perfect for this birthday card! I used a Blending Brushes and a Water Painter, along with several ink colors, to create the coloful paper for the candles.

Be sure to join us to see what our Stampin’ Fancy Friday team created. We have 27 amazing projects to share, and each using their own unique interpretation of the challenge!

Then… create a card or project, with inspiration of your own (or use one from our team)…..using this sketch challange! Share your project on IG or FB and tag us by using #stampinfancyfriday or #fancyfridaychallenges in your post.

For this card, I startedwith some Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, and layered a slightly larger piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock underneath.

To create the colorful paper for the candles, I used a Blending Brush to add soft swirls of Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, and Pacific Point to some Basic White Thick Cardstock. I also used a Blending Brush to add soft swirls of Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia to another piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock. Next, I used my Water Painter to “flick” water drops across the cardstock, then dried it with a Heat Tool. Once the cardstock was completely dry, I cut out the candles with one of the dies from the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies.

To create the little flames, I used a Blending Brush to add Daffodil Delight to some Basic White Thick Cardstock, then cut them out with another one of the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I also popped up the candles and the flames with tiny pieces of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment (from the Sentimental Park Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Basic Black Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To add an extra bit of texture, I created a bow with White Baker’s Twine (with a few of the strands pulled out) and tied it around the entire panel. I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the entire panel to the card base.For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
