Happy Birthday Card

Hello and welcome!

This is Tatiana from TatianaGraphicDesign! I am so excited and happy to guest designing for Heffy Doodle this month! Thanks so much Heffy Doodle for this wonderful opportunity!!!

I’m a designer, blogger and just an avid paper crafter from Italy. You may know me as @tatianacraftandart on Instagram. I always loved everything handmade and crafty related and tried all kinds of hobbies from jewelry making to crocheting until I discovered and felt in love with a magical world of paper crafting. Cardmaking and coloring became my relaxing getaway. I like getting inky, experimenting, stretching my supplies, learning new techniques and coloring with any medium.

Today I’m sharing my first card that features a couple of stunning stamps and dies from the Heffy Doodle’s latest release. I just cannot resist the cutest critters and fantastic balloons from Popping By Stamp Set and make them pop from a cake with sweet birthday wishes!

Key Ingredients:

Step By Step Instructions:

  • Stamp on Neenah Solar White paper all the elements you need from Popping By Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  If you use a stamping positioning tool, ink and impress the images a couple of times to achieve black and crisp outlines.
  • Fussy cut all the stamps with the sharp small scissors right against the outlines.

Please note that the coordinating Popping By Die Set is available at Heffy Doodle online store.

  • Color all the stamps with COPIC MARKERS. I used:
    • orange YR000-YR00-YR02-YR04-YR07
    • pink RV0000-RV00-RV10-RV13
    • red R0000-R00-R11-R12-R14
    • violet BV0000-BV00-BV02
    • teal BG0000-BG10-BG11-BG34
    • green YG0000-YG00-YG01
    • yellow Y0000-Y00-Y11-Y15
    • grey W00-W0-W1-W3-W5
    • cake YR30-YR20-Y21
  • Paint the stamp edges with a black brush nib marker to hide all the imperfections due to the fussy cutting.
  • Die cut Happy Birthday Shadow Heffy Cuts three times: two from a black cardstock and one from Neenah Solar White paper.
  • Die cut the shadow layer from vellum.
  • Glue together all the layers with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
  • Trim and score a small slimline card base (6″ x 3 1/2″) from Neenah Solar White paper.
  • Trim a slightly smaller rectangle from the same Neenah Solar White paper for the background.
  • Ink it with Tattered Rose Distress, Spun Sugar Distress, Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide, Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. Use blending brushes for a soft and smooth result.
  • Stamp small confetti images from Popping By Stamp Set all across the inked background with the same colors of Distress inks.
  • Flick some tiny droplets of a white gouache.
  • Arrange and glue in place all the elements. Pop some of them on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look.
  • Finish with a coat of a clear glitter pen and some highlighting accents added with a white gel pen.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
