Stampin' Up! Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper Birthday Wishes

TGIF, peeps! I think I actually posted every day this week...a first since January. 

I'm entering my card in the Inspiration Station Challenge #3. The photo colors/flowers/shapes are my inspiration.


My card base is Gorgeous Grape Cardstock. I used a piece of glossy cardstock for my polished stone technique. You will need two cotton balls, rubbing alcohol and ink refills the colors of your choice (mine were Gorgeous Grape and Just Jade). I also used Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (on sale until 5/3 for $4.80 while supplies last). With the first cotton ball, I saturated it with rubbing alcohol. I dropped one drop of Just Jade and two drops of Gorgeous Grape ink refills onto the ball. I dabbed wherever I liked. When it was dry, I took the second cotton ball and dabbed the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint wherever I wanted and let that dry. Then I adhered a piece of Detailed Laser Cut Paper (retired) to the polished stone mat and adhered that to the card base. The sentiment is from a computer print out that Crafty Al provided. It's matted on Gorgeous Grape and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped a panel of Basic White cardstock with the dogwood image, sentiment from the Dogwood stamp set (Technique Tuesday 2015) and a second sentiment from the Daffodil stamp set (same company) using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I had never used these stamps before so I'm entering my card at NBUS Challenge #25. I colored my image with watercolor pencils (Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Early Espresso) and a Blender Pen. I adhered it directly to the card base.


I'm also entering my card in the Aud Sentiments Challenge #272 ATG with a sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today and I'm going to see if I can keep up the weekly pace again. Wish me luck!

    1. Thanks much, Mary. I think I need to try it with the new In Colors, which means I have to place another pre-order because I didn't get the ink refills...LOL.
