Simon Hurley create. | Rainbow Confetti Birthday Card

The Simon Hurley create. Bubble Wrap Stencil has become one of my favorite stencils ever! I love the wonky polka dots! Today I decided to make it into a rainbow confetti birthday card with some easy ink blending!

The Bubble Wrap Stencil is so versatile! You can blend a subtle polka dot background or go bold like I did! I wanted to have each wonky dot a different color, but I didn't want to work hard and mask off each polka dot. Lazy crafters unite! Haha! I used finger blender brushes so I didn't have to do any masking for my background at all!

I used Pixie Spray to adhere the Bubble Wrap Stencil onto a piece of Stark White Cardstock and went to town with my rainbow blending! I've found that Stark White Cardstock is the absolute BEST cardstock for ink blending. The colors of ink are so vibrant! I used a variety of Simon Hurley create. Dye Ink Pads - Bee Sting, Prom Queen, Traffic Cone, Slippery When Wet, Overzealous, Clear Skies, and Crown Me. I started with one color and blended 6 or 7 dots and then repeated the process with the other colors. I didn't have a rhyme or reason to my blending - I just made sure I didn't have the same color directly next to each other.

I wanted my confetti background to be the center piece and really stand out, so I decided to go simple with the rest of the card. I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Dudes Too! Stamp Set onto a die cut black circle and added it with foam to the center of the card.

That's everything! This was so easy to make, but I'm in LOVE and I hope you are, too!
