Hey there friend, welcome back.
The month of August is always a big birthday month in our house, since its my daughters and my husband’s. I love making them cards and special things, but its a bit tricky for men, isn’t it? The new stencil from TCW makes it a bit easier. Here’s what I did…
**The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some products to create this project. The opinions I share, however, are solely my own. :)***
To make this card, I used a pre-made card and taped it to my table, to keep it from moving around, but also to give it a nice frame.
Then I start playing with my colorburst from Ken Oliver and The Crafter’s Workshop. I used Turquoise and Metallic emerald. The Metallic was super fun, and new to me. I loved the foiled look I could achieve with literally no afford. Just sprinkle some powder and drop a few drops, then spritz with water to activate and spread around. I heat set it, to speed up the process.
Now I will add some interest using a stencil to this background. I use the newly released Summer 2019 – TCW871 Native Star (Pre-order it from your nearest retailer now)
Then I used Dina Wakley paint in the color Night inside the stencil.
This is such a gorgeous stencil. I love how it feels like a kaleidoscope.
Once you remove the stencil, the beautiful patter is reveled.
All that’s left to do now, is to add a sentiment and some embellishments. I Stamped the words “Happy Birthday” and then heat embossed it with some Nuvo Embossing powder, which stands out beautifully in the middle of the dark blue. I also added sequence embellishments from nuvo to add more sparkles and details.
I hope you enjoyed this project and got inspired to create yourself.
