Simon Says Stamp | Oh Ship! We Forgot Your Birthday! Belated Birthday Card 3 Ways. Video

Hi everyone! I’m excited to bring you another episode from my by-monthly Yippee For Yana video series for Simon Says Stamp Blog! In today’s video I’m showing how to stamp a belated Birthday card. I am sharing one card 3 ways – from a very simple one layer mail friendly project to a slightly more layered dimensional card.

CARD DETAILS

The stamp sets I picked for these cards are Enjoy The Journey from Hero Arts and Big Perfect Shapes from Simon. As for the colors of ink I went with Lake Shores, Winter Sky, Cloudy Sky, Audrey Blue and High Dive.

I started working on my cards by creating a background. I used a circle stamp and stamped a random looking pattern using all 5 ink colors. Each color was stamped 3 times. You’ll notice my images overlap a lot – this is the look I was going for.

After my backgrounds were done I used my mini MISTI and stamped the ship as well as the “Oh Ship!” message in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I also added an additional “We Forgot Your Birthday” sentiment at the bottom and I curved it for a more interesting look.

CARD OPTION #1 – ONE LAYER, PENCIL COLORED SAILS

From here I finished each card slightly different. The one layer stamped card front was left almost as is – I used a white Prismacolor pencil and whitened the sails of my ship.

CARD OPTION #2 – WHITE CUT OUT PAPER SAILS

To complete my 2 and 3 cards I trimmed my panels down to 4 by 5 1/4 inches and adhere them onto A2 top folding card bases. I also stamped 2 more ship images and an anchor onto a separate piece of cardstock. I used my Simon’s Intense black ink this time as I knew I’d be coloring these images later.

Using coordinating dies I cut out one of the ships and also an anchor and I set those aside to use for the 3rd card. To complete my 2nd card I cut out the individual sail sections with scissors and adhered them onto the stamped sails on my panel. That took a bit of time, but the sail images aren’t detailed, so they weren’t difficult to cut out at all.

I used my Crystal Katana tool to pick up and move the cut out pieces and my Tonic Deluxe adhesive to add glue. I really loved the way this ship turned out – the white sails added a lot to the overall look and made the image pop off the colorful background. Because they were cut out and adhered they also added a little bit of dimension to this card without actually adding any physical dimension to the project.

I also used a C3 and C1 copic markers along with a colorless blender and added a bit of shading to each white piece to make it appear a bit more realistic.

CARD OPTION #3 – LAYERED DIE-CUT & COLORED SHIP

To complete my 3rd card I colored my die cut ship using Copic markers. The colors I picked were dictated by the colors I used for my background stamping, I wanted my ship to match in color as much as possible. I used BG18, BG15 and BG32 markers to color the sails.

For the hull of the ship I picked cool grays. You’d expect it to be brown since the hull of that kind of ship would be made out of wood, but I didn’t want to introduce additional color to these monochromatic cards, so I went with gray instead and I think that turned out rather nice. I used C9, C7 and C5 colors.

Using foam adhesive I adhered the ship and the anchor onto my last panel.

So here are 3 completed variations of one card – the one layer pencil colored one, the one with the white cut out sails and the 3rd card with the colored, cut out and foam mounted ship and anchor.

I am curios to hear which one you like best. My favorite is the 2nd one, but I do love that added dimension on the 3rd one as well.

    1. I really do like them all Yana but I have to pick the third one, probably because of the dimension the little bit of colouring adds on the sails.
