Purple and orange birthday card – March 20, 2020

Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper

It’s Friday! Here we used an old calendar (from Target) as a background. Stamped on dull gloss but it is a little messy because if the stamps are dirty or have any fuzz, it shows. Important to clean the stamps well but sometimes we forget. 🤪 It makes it look more handmade, right?! Also, important to let the dull gloss images dry before attempting to color otherwise it will smear.

Celebrating you! – February 28, 2020

Birthday

This was a fun card to make and a bit of an experiment. For the background, I used dull gloss paper and rubbed the edges with a light blue ink pad, then stamped rows and columns of the bitty block across the paper. Followed with the circle in green. Thought it was still missing something, so added the orange lines. Used Copic markers to color the cupcake. My constant struggle with the dull gloss is not allowing enough time to dry. Might need to take a heat gun to it! A lot of birthdays are coming up so time to get stamping 🤪, happy Friday! 🎉
