Paper piecing birthday card

Happy Saturday! 🙂

Having 2 small kids weekends are not about sleeping long, but at least I cannot complain about lack of entertainment..my 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

Sziasztok,

RemĂ©lem kellemesen telik a  szombat. Nálunk nem a lustizásrĂłl szĂłl, a kĂ©t kis manĂłm nagyon szeret minĂ©l többet kihozni a napbĂłl, már ha játĂ©krĂłl van szĂł. De legalább nem unatkozom 🙂 Ma is egy szĂĽlinapi lapot hoztam, amit a kislányom inspirált: imádja a lufikat, a viragokat Ă©s nagyon hasonlĂ­t a SSS Lila’s Heart nyomdakĂ©szletben levĹ‘ kislányra. Szerettem volna valami egyszerűt, de szĂ­neset Ă©s 3D-set alkotni. Ez lett belĹ‘le.

A kislányt és 3 lufit fehér papírra pecsételtem, kivágtam a hozzá tartozó vágókésekkel és alkoholos filcekkel színeztem. A kislány ruháját virágmintás papírra pecsételtem és kivágtam, majd felragasztottam az eredeti képre. Fehér zselés tollal, egy kis csillámos Wink of Stella tollal és jó sok Glossy Accent-tel tettem egyedivé a képeket. Fehér dekorgumiból is kivágtam a mintákat, így tettem 3 dimenzióssá könnyedén a képeket. Mielőtt ezeket felragasztottam volna a felirattal nyomtatott hátteremre, egy kis Cracked Pistachio distress tintát vittem fel árnyék gyanánt oda, ahova a lányt és a lufikat képzeltem. A lufik zsinórjaként ezüst cérnát használtam. A képeslap aljára egy mintás papírcsíkot ragasztottam, ezt egy csillámos papírból vágott hullám bordűr követte, majd a kislány labia alá egy vékony türkiz csíkot tettem.

Remélem tetszik nektek is.

Ăśdv,

ZsĂłfi
