Simon Says Stamp | 25th Birthday Card. Video

Hello and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! Today I have a simple numbered Birthday Card idea to share using a few current favorite supplies from Simon Says Stamp. My card is for 25th Birthday, but you can change the number to be anything you need, from 1st birthday to 99th!

VIDEO TUTORIAL

As always, I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel:

CARD DETAILS

One of the key ingredients for this projects is the coordinating die set for the Birthday Numbers stamp set. I’m using just the dies today and actually skipping stamping the numbers. Having dies you can create all sorts of looks; the look I’m going for today is negative die cutting.

I wanted to add some interest to my background panel so I heat embossed Rose Lattice background background stamp in White Satin Pearl embossing powder from Hero Arts to have a tone on tone look. It doesn’t show much on the card, but it gives it a nice touch. Alternatively, you can opt to use specialty paper for the front panel of your card, like woodgrain cardstock, you can also use something like a texture plate and add some dry embossing or texture details to the card front, just something to make it less stark white.

I wanted to decorate the number openings, the positive number space with flowers. As if the numbers are blooming. To do this I used floral images from the Moments of Grace stamp, it’s such a timeless and unique set, and even though it has a lot of sentiments for sympathy cards I often find myself using it for other occasion projects.

I didn’t want to stamp flowers in black ink, so I opted for heat embossing once again and embossed them in Antique Gold embossing powder. I used a bit different color combo – pale violets, pinks and greens. BV000, BV00 and BV11, RV23, RV11, RV10, G99, G94 and YG03 markers.

To add some color in the negative die cut opening I ink blended Velvet Orchid and Deep Purple ink colors directly onto the card base. I used foam adhesive tape and foam mounted the negative die cut panal onto my card base. Once that was in place I used both foam adhesive and glue and adhered all of the floral elements.

Finally, I added that Lets Celebrate sentiment, a green enamel heart and a few purple stamped hearts on this card.

Have fun stamping!
