Hi, Jeni here with a bright and vibrant birthday card video tutorial. I needed to make a birthday card for my nephew’s birthday in January. This video has been sitting on my computer for a while but I finally managed to get it ready for YouTube. You can watch the video by clicking HERE, and don’t forget to join The Little Paper Tree Tribe group on Facebook. All the products I used are linked to the shop in the product list below.
I lined up the Birthday Basics turnabout stamp with the included guide and then lined this up with the cross marks on the Jig. I used Catherine Pooler Designs inks in Suede Shoes, Rockin Red, Lime Rickey and Fiesta Blue for the card I stamped in the video. I switched the Rockin Red for Aquatini for the card I stamped off screen. This stamp is amazing! You get multi coloured cupcakes, balloons with strings, party hats, and party blowers. Each turn of the stamp spells out “Day” in the banner.
For the blue card I die cut the circle from the Birthday Basics die and stamped “Best Day Ever” and adhered this flat to the card. I trimmed this panel down a quarter inch to leave a white border when it has been placed on a card base.
I die cut the circles from green and yellow card for my other card. I curved the “happy birthday” stamp to make it look curved and stamped this onto the yellow circle. I stamped “Best Day Ever” on the green circle, and added the ends of the balloon. I adhered these both to the background (which was trimmed slightly too) and trimmed off any over hang. I drew some lines to act as balloon strings and my second birthday card is finished.
While this stamp was set up in my Stamp Platform I also stamped a bunch of backgrounds in different colours of ink and added these to my box of backgrounds for future cards. Do you do this too with turnabout stamps? The Birthday Basics looks gorgeous in Twilight.
