Time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Group. This month I am sharing a project with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set as that is the stamp set I used for the Tutorials this month.
I wanted to try something a little different with the dies. I wanted to layer up the flowers on the card to give more dimension. A bit like the old Paper Tole effect. You can tell in the photo how it looks.
I stamped the cake from Happy Birthday To You on white card 3 times. I used Basic Gray ink as it is a little softer. I coloured just the cake on one, and then the flowers on the other 2 cakes. They were coloured with Stampin’ Blends (Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive). The cake was coloured with Mint Macaron.
On one of the cakes (the one without the flowers coloured in), I cut the full cake out with the Birthday Dies. On the other two cakes I cut the flowers out with the flower die. On one of these diecut flowers I trimmed off the top flower to have just a single flower.
Then diecut some leaves from Old Olive and Mint Macaron and adhere them behind the flowers before assembling them together. You will find it so much easier – trust me!! 😉
After all the diecutting you can layer the cake together using Dimensionals to layer up the flowers. The full diecut flowers was layered on to the diecut cake and then the single flower was raised up on top of these flowers. If that makes sense? So there were 3 layers with the top flowers. Check the photo below to see it.
To finish the card I adhered a piece of the Perennial Essence paper on to a white card mat and then they were adhered to a Flirty Flamingo card base.
A rectangle from Vellum was cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. To adhere this to the card I added a little Snail Adhesive behind where the cake would be and then the cake was adhered on to the Vellum with Dimensionals.
The little sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings and cut with the cute little shape in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
