Tuning Up...For A Great Day!

One of my favorite things to do when stamping is to "collide" stamp sets.

Tuning Up...For A Great Day!

I love the happy coincidence of how the sentiment from Tune Up fit with Birthday Joy (illustrated by Mo Manning).  Throw in a row of banners from Let's Go Wild and you are ready for a celebration!


This is how I "tuned up" this card.....
  • Create a 4 x 4 1/2 top-folded card from Sea Breeze cardstock.  Color a smaller piece of white cardstock with orange PanPastel and adhere to the front of the card base.  Set aside.
  • Stamp the banners in Aegean VersaMagic across a 3 1/2 x 4-inch piece of white cardstock.
  • Cut a small window beneath the banners using a craft knife.
  • Stamp the sentiment below the window in black ink.
  • Layer the stamped cardstock on the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam.  
  • Stamp Birthday Joy on a separate piece of white cardstock in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.  Color as desired and fussy cut.  Attach to the card as shown with dimensional foam tape.

Have a great weekend,
