Hello and welcome to my blog; today’s post has been a challenge to get up. I have been trying to upload the images to my computer since 6:15 am this morning. My laptop has been a little ornery, but I have finally gotten everything uploaded and edited. Today, I am going to share with you another card featuring the Broadway Birthday Stamp Set. This card is a little different, I used the small images in the stamp set to create my very own turnabout style card. I will be shooting a video later today and will add it to this post so that you can see just how I did that. Here’s a look at my card.
For my card I picked some bright fun colors. I mean come on it’s a birthday card it should be bright and fun right? I laid out my stamps on my stamparatus and created the layout so that I could use the turnabout style stamping to get all the fun colors and change things up. The hardest part about this process is the actual making sure everything is lined up just right. But once you do the cards are so much fun. After editing the photos I realized I forgot one of the small stamps and could have used it to fill in some of the areas on my card. Silly me; this is what happens when you aren’t paying attention to your stamp sets.
The small stamps in your sets really shouldn’t be over looked you can use them to create some many different techniques and fun card designs. I often use these small stamps to create a background piece for my card.
As I mentioned before turnabout stamping is a great way to use these small images in a new way with a wonderful dramatic look. It just takes a little playing to arrange all the images. But, once you do you can create a colorful background just like I did here with just a few turns of the turnabout set up.
The Broadway Birthday Stamp Set has great fun images that are great for this technique. You have the balloon, party hat, candle, and ice cream cone. All of which are easy to stamp by them self but when done in this style it creates a whole new world of creative expression.
Once I had everything stamped I simply trimmed down my image and placed it on a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock that was cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and I glued the entire thing onto my A2 card base. I then die cut the marquee from whisper white cardstock (this I used to stamp the sentiment) and one from Basic Black Cardstock (for the outside). For the whisper white one I stamped the Wish image in Daffodil Delight and then used the dotted wish image (which represent the lights from the marquee) in Mango Melody. Then I finished off the sentiment with the two stamps that read Make A, and it’s your birthday in Gorgeous Grape ink. I popped the whisper white layer up on dimensionals and adhered the basic black outside frame to the card front with a little liquid glue.
I hope that you liked my card today and that you give this technique a try. Again I will be doing the video and uploading it today, so be on the watch out for that as well. If you are loving the Broadway Birthday Stamp Set and want to get your hands on it, please do so now. This set and the matching dies are carrying over to the new 2019 -2020 Annual Catalog but will not be part of a cost saving bundle (like it is in the current 2018-2019 Annual Catalog). So I would suggest ordering it now to save that extra 10% off both products. Thanks for dropping by.
