Paper piecing birthday card

Happy Saturday! ūüôā

Having 2 small kids weekends are not about sleeping long, but at least I cannot complain about lack of little ones are really active and love to wake up early to prolong the playing time.

The card I want to share today was inspired by my daughter, she loves balloons and loves flowers and really looks like the girl in this SSS stamp set (Lila’s Heart). I wanted something dimensional yet simple, so here is what I made.


First I stamped and coloured the girl  and 3 balloons with alcohol markers, and cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped the girl on patterned paper once more, fussy cut the dress and glued on top of the original one. I die cut all my elements from white fun foam to add dimension. I just found it easier than gluing with foam tape and I really like the look of the whole images popped up. I added some details with a white gel pen, some shimmer with wink of stella clear glitter pen and of course a ton of glossy accent.


Before adhering my images on a piece of white cardstock, I sponged some cracked pistachio distress ink as a shadow where I wanted my girl and balloons. As I wanted the Happy Birthday sign to be in Hungarian, I printed the panel first (I really wish to have Hungarian sentiments in different sizes and fonts..).


Then I put the card together, starting with a little strip of the same patterned paper as I used for the dress, then a little scalloped border cut from glitter cardstock o make it even more¬†girlish and soft. To “land” the girl, I used a thin strip of teal cardstock which matched the patterned paper. For the balloon strings I used a very thin metal thread from DMC.

I hope you like it. I am entering this card in the SSS Wednesday Challenge.Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Rem√©lem kellemesen telik a¬† szombat. N√°lunk nem a lustiz√°sr√≥l sz√≥l, a k√©t kis man√≥m nagyon szeret min√©l t√∂bbet kihozni a napb√≥l, m√°r ha j√°t√©kr√≥l van sz√≥. De legal√°bb nem unatkozom ūüôā Ma is egy sz√ľlinapi lapot hoztam, amit a kisl√°nyom inspir√°lt: im√°dja a lufikat, a viragokat √©s nagyon hasonl√≠t a SSS Lila’s Heart nyomdak√©szletben levŇĎ kisl√°nyra. Szerettem volna valami egyszerŇĪt, de sz√≠neset √©s 3D-set alkotni. Ez lett belŇĎle.

A kisl√°nyt √©s 3 lufit feh√©r pap√≠rra pecs√©teltem, kiv√°gtam a hozz√° tartoz√≥ v√°g√≥k√©sekkel¬†√©s alkoholos filcekkel sz√≠neztem. A kisl√°ny ruh√°j√°t vir√°gmint√°s pap√≠rra pecs√©teltem √©s kiv√°gtam, majd felragasztottam az eredeti k√©pre. Feh√©r zsel√©s tollal, egy kis csill√°mos Wink of Stella tollal √©s j√≥ sok Glossy Accent-tel tettem egyediv√© a k√©peket. Feh√©r dekorgumib√≥l is kiv√°gtam a mint√°kat, √≠gy tettem 3 dimenzi√≥ss√° k√∂nnyed√©n a k√©peket. MielŇĎtt ezeket felragasztottam volna a felirattal nyomtatott h√°tteremre, egy kis Cracked Pistachio distress tint√°t vittem fel √°rny√©k gyan√°nt oda, ahova a l√°nyt √©s a lufikat k√©pzeltem. A lufik zsin√≥rjak√©nt ez√ľst c√©rn√°t haszn√°ltam. A k√©peslap alj√°ra egy mint√°s pap√≠rcs√≠kot ragasztottam, ezt egy csill√°mos pap√≠rb√≥l v√°gott hull√°m bordŇĪr k√∂vette, majd a kisl√°ny labia al√° egy v√©kony t√ľrkiz cs√≠kot tettem.

Remélem tetszik nektek is.
