Birthday Statements


Hello and welcome to another blog hop put together by a group of gifted crafters from all around the world. This hop doesn't have a common theme, so grab yourself a cup of tea and enjoy tons of our creativity.

I made these two cards to show you using brand new Birthday Statements cling stamp set*. The one on the left (white background) is very simple - the image is stamped in black ink and then it's coloured with Stampin' Up! writing markers I touched up the balloon with a Melon Mambo watercolour pencil just to give it a tiny bit of colour. 


The card on the right (black background) is a little more involved but also very easy. The main image is stamped with versamark and then heat embossed with a white powder. And then I coloured the image using the same colours as on the left, only this time I used watercolour pencils only. First, I coloured everything with a white pencil, with very light pressure and then I used colours.
On both cards, I used the wink of Stella on all the balloon to give them a bit of sparkle. Which card do you like more? I like both of them too! Why not try to make them yourself? Scroll to the very bottom of this post for the complete shopping list. Don't forget for every £45 spent in my store you earn one Sale-a-Bration item (between now and March 31)! On top of it, I'd send you this month Tutorial Bundle that includes tutorials from ten different crafters. How exciting is all that?

* I mentioned already the set I worked with is called Birthday Statements. I should also point out this set is cling set. Cling stamps newly developed rubber stamps that won't fall of your acrylic block or shift while stamping. Watch the video below how to assemble and care for them. I love mine
