Portrait Pals Birthday with Anja

Hello everyone, Anja here with you today. I needed a card for a birthday boy so I pulled out the adorable Portrait Pals stamp set and went with a masculine color palette. First, I cut and scored a standard A2 card base from white cardstock. I trimmed down the green grid patterned paper to be slightly smaller and adhered it to the card base. Next, I stamped the critters and leaves in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. To create seperate little scenes, I die cut two...

Puddle Play with Amy

I was inspired by an illustration I found on Pinterest, and I started from the background because I knew it was necessary a bit of time to let it dry. I took...

70 Birthday Balloons with Gemma

I have a special birthday card to share today. I used a combination of dies to create these large balloons, perfect for a milestone birthday. I began with the background. I die cut the Ocean Overlay die from white sparkle card and silver embossed card. I adhered the pieces on to a 5.25″ card base. This die is great for adding texture to a background. Next, I used two dies from the Nesting Circles die set to cut patterned paper. I layered these over white card circles, for dimension and stability. To turn these into balloons, I used the...
