Pink & Main | Have a Cool Birthday

Ice cream is my favorite sweet treat! I brought together a bunch of sweet Pink & Main stamps and dies to make this cool birthday card!

I wanted to have a fun birthday card with unexpected ice cream colors. I started by stamping the Sprinkles Background Stamp onto white cardstock with Versamark Ink and embossing it with white powder. I used an Ergonomic Blending Brush to blend some light pink, dark pink, and purple inks over the embossed Sprinkles Background for an easy emboss resist background. This is the easiest way I've found to have white embossing with a colorful background. You could first blend and then emboss the background, but then you have to wait for the background to dry completely and I'm much too impatient for that!

The adorable ice cream truck image is from the So Cool stamp set. This stamp set is so adorable! Cute little penguins and ice cream images, but this ice cream truck grabbed my attention! I stamped it and colored it with colors that would coordinate well with the background and die cut the truck with the So Cool dies.

I wanted to have a big birthday sentiment and opted to use the Happy Birthday Dies since my background is heat embossed and I have a die cut image. Die cut sentiments are easy to layer and I love the way the Happy Birthday Dies stand out! This die set comes with a shadow die, but I liked the look of just the sentiment on top of the Sprinkles Background. And that finishes the card! See you soon!
