Stampin Up: Speech Bubble Dies & Retro Fresh Washi

Hiya Stampers,

Just a quick post today to share a card I made for Eric’s Grandmother who spoiled us with cake & presents on our most recent visit.  I love spending time with family  ❤

They have a budgie bird named Pom Pom, so I wanted to incorporate a bird in the card somehow… He is bright colors so I wanted to make sure the card reflected that as well.

Here is what I came up with:

Stampin Up’s retro fresh washi tape made this card ridiculously easy & quick to make on the fly (last minute).  The only cutting of paper was the card base and first layer… the tape I just pulled off a piece and layered each design onto the card.  I used markers to clor the toucan bird, and fussy cut him out and adhering him using dimensionals

Here’s a really neat trick:  Here is how I created a layered effect for the speech bubble :

  1. Die cut bottom layer of speech bubble in solid colored card stock.
  2. Using the same die, I placed it on white card stock then with a pencil, traced the shaoe on the INSIDE of the die.
  3. With the “Remerciements” stamp set, I used the small ‘merci’ stamp, inked in tangerine tango, coastal cabana, soft suede & so saffron
  4. Finally, I fussy cut along my pencil lines and popped up the cut out piece using dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by. And don’t forget – your comments are always welcome and appreciated!!
