I haven't had a lot of stamping time during the past few weeks -- life happens, distractions pop up -- and the time I have had hasn't been very productive. But I do have a few projects I need to tackle this week and next, so I'm hoping my mojo gets back in gear. At any rate, here is a flip card I made for a recent birthday:
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Packed for Birthday, On Your Birthday, Party Hearty, birthday Petite Fours set (Denami Design)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White card stock; Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Ballet Blue, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Square Flip-Its #2 dies (Sizzix), Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen (ZIG), wooden stars from Hooray It's Your Day card kit, linen thread, Mono Multi liquid glue
This card was for a teen boy, which is a challenging demographic for me. I don't really have any images that are "cool" (or whatever the young 'uns say today), so I decided to stick with generic birthday images and a good "boy" color scheme: brown, orange, and blue.
The banner is from the Packed for Birthday stamp; I used a marker to color just that part of the image and then stamped it across the upper left corner of a piece of Whisper White card stock. I added the sentiment and a few balloons (with hand-drawn strings) and colored the images with Ballet Blue and Pumpkin Pie, the two colors that coordinated with the DSP I used for the background.
Thanks for stopping by!
