Let's make that cute background! I used papers from two 6x6 paper packs - the new Birthday Celebration Paper Pack and the Giraffe Paper Pack. I trimmed some of my favorite colors and patterns into 1/2" strips and adhered them onto a slimline card base measuring 3/25" x 8.25". This is one of my favorite ways to create a multi colored background!
I stamped out a cute little cupcake from the Koala Cuteness Stamp Set and a cupcake from the Calories Shmalories stamp set and I colored them with Copic Markers. I added light shading and accented the shading with dot details. I love to do dot details with markers on critters! It just makes them look so cute!
I wanted to add a little more birthday celebration to the background, so I die cut one of the Slimline Bunting Border Dies from white cardstock and added it across my slimline card. I am obsessed with this die set! I love that there are three different banner styles in one die set!
I colored the cupcake to match the colors of the background patterned papers, but when I added my images on top of my background they got a bit lost. I die cut one of the Notched Square Dies from white cardstock and mounted my images onto the die cut shape instead of directly onto the background. I added a sentiment from the Calories Shmalories Stamp Set onto a banner and that finishes the card!
I hope you've enjoyed this Whimsy Stamps Friday Frenzy video! And that this new series will inspire you to mix and match the new with the old! See you next Friday!
