Hello and Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians out there! I hope you all have an amazing long weekend celebrating with friends and family!
Welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things July Release Countdown! This month's release is celebrating birthdays in a big way and with all of the new products, you won't have any problem creating birthday cards for all of those special people in your life!
For my first card today I used the new Celebrate with Cake stamp set and coordinating die-namics to create a bright and fun birthday card with the focus on the three tiered cake. ;)
I stamped each of the cake layers separately with dye ink (Ripe Raspberry, Summer Splash and Limelight) and then I diecut the solid 3 piece cake from silver sparkle cardstock and adhered the layers on top.
I stamped and diecut the candles and adhered them to the top of the cake and then I added the finished cake to a white cardstock panel diecut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Stax die-namics.
I stamped the sentiment directly under the cake with black ink and then I added some ink splatters stamped with the Distressed Patterns stamp set, and some clear sequins for some added dimension.
For my second card today, I used the new Big Balloons stencil and created a colourful card with the focus on the large balloons.
I created two of the balloons with dye ink (Blu Raspberry and Coral Crush) and an ink blending tool, and I used white embossing paste (coloured with Limelight dye ink) to create the third balloon.
This card is one of the cards featured in this months free release class, so make sure to check out the MFT blog on release night for a downloadable PDF of all of the cards in the month's class as well as a video sharing how I created this card.
