Stretch Your Stamps: Birthday to Valentines

 
Hello Crafters! 
I hope you're having an amazing week. I'm off work for the next two days so my week is definitely looking up haha. 

I have a fun one layer card for you today that I hope inspires you to use your themed stamps differently.  
Before we get into the card though I do want to mention some money savers for you!


The stamps sets I used today are currently 50% off so if you love them head over to the store and grab them!
While you're there don't forget to stop by our warehouse sale for discounted Glimmer Pastes, stencils and WAY more!


Today's card is pretty clean and simple which you know I love. 
I started by stamping my banner because I knew I wanted to see all of that. After that as masked I got started stamping the heart balloons and card envelopes. 


I stamped and masked as many as I needed for the card to feel balanced. That was necessary for me because I was doing a central focal point. If you'd rather do a bottom or top third focal point you won't need nearly as many envelopes or balloons. 


After the main images were stamped I sprinkled in a few smaller hearts to help the focal point kind of fade off into that white space. I removed all my masks and got coloring with my Nuvo Alcohol Markers. 


After the coloring was done a quick love themed sentiment and clear glitter finished the card off. 
/you can watch the whole thing and hear me ramble on about being tired in the video below lol


thank you so much for stopping by and I'll be back soon. 
After I nap :)

Since it's a birthday celebration ya'll know I had to make a birthday card! 


I used every cutie in the new Party Friends set to create a "Surprise" party card. I started by doing some masking so it would all be one layer just like I like 'em :) 


After all my characters were stamped and masked I used one of the Birthday Borders to add some presents in the background. That adorable koala looked like he needed some confetti popping out of that cake with him so I stamped lots of that too. 


There were tons of neutral colors with the coloring of the animals so I knew I was going to need to add all my color with the presents and decorations. I chose to go mainly with primary colors so I didn't overwhelm an already busy scene with lots of colors. Copic markers were my go to but you could easily do this with pencils or even a watercolor marker. 


Once the charters and decorations were colored I added some weight to my confetti by outlining it in a pale blue. This helps fill up the area so it isn't boring ole' white. 

You know the deal by now...I'm sleep deprived and don't have enough hours in the day. 
Video to come later today....or if it's there but not playing it's still processing. Honestly, I'm dropping it in and going to bed. :) 


Your next stop on the hop is the incredibly talented Ardyth Percy-Robb whose clean and simple cards always blow my mind.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
