Birthday Card Entry


This is a card I created as an entry to a "subbie giveaway" for Maddie, her YouTube channel is mkturner214.  Maddie is celebrating 100+ subscribers!  

Here is the video response I created:

The adorable image you see of all those puppies, is from Whipper Snapper Designs.  I have been wanting to use this stamp for some time now, and this was the perfect opportunity!  I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto X-press it blending card paper, then colored it using Copics.  I cut around my image and placed it onto the card using dimensionals.  The designer paper I used is from Basic Grey Shine On Collection (both 6"x 6" and 12" x 12") paper pads.  I used several die cuts from several different companies.  The sun was cut using a die cut from Lil' Inkers Designs, the picket fence is a die from My Favorite Things, the grass die is from Taylored Expressions and last but not least, the small hills are cut using a Papertrey Ink die - In the Meadow.

The larger of the speech bubbles were cut out of the 12" x 12" Basic Grey Shine On paper pad, and the small red square speech bubble was cut from the 6" x 6" Basic Grey paper pad.  The sentiments I used came from several stamp sets.  I added dimensionals to a few of the speech bubbles, so that they would stand out.

For the inside of the card, I used the Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts Base and Insert (card, Horizontal A2 w/circle label 3D) (Pop-up).  The posts were using the Sizzix Sizzlets Flagpole w/Lantern & sign die (decorative strip), and for the banners I used Papertrey Ink - Banner builder die collection.  The stamped image I used is from Whimsy Stamps - Cupcake Bliss, which I also stamped on X-press it blending card using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, then colored with Copics.  I added some of my favorite colored glitter, Art Glitter in Aquamarine from the Art Institute Glitter.  The image was attached to the pop-up using an action wobble, which I have to admit, is my first time using one of these, and I love the effect!  The sentiment inside is from a Hero Art Stamp set called Card Messages that was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and matted using a piece Pure Poppy cardstock from Papertrey Ink that I die cut using Spellbinder Nestabilities - Long scalloped rectangles large.

I had a lot of fun creating this card, and I really hope Maddie likes it!
