Sense of Time Birthday
This is a stamp set that I has been on my wishlist FOREVER! I am so happy I finally got it and am thinking I should have got it way sooner. Here is a masculine birthday card that I made last night (Friday) for someone that I work with. It was his birthday today! This is also the card that I will be demonstrating at my February his/her cards & scrapbook club. This is the "his" card for that club. I was trying to get the 3-D stamped layers technique effect as that is the technique that I am demonstrating this month and I think I did just that with the top right corner. You could also call it the "spotlighting" technique too (just without the coloring). How did I get this effect....well I will share that with you. I did it the same way as the "her" card for the club except I added a layer of Early Espresso card stock under my Whisper White card stock. Firstly, I took my C clear-mount block and applied ink to one side of it by smooshing it on to a Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. I then placed the inked clear-mount block onto the piece of Whisper White card stock. In order for this technique to work you will need to place something under the card stock that is soft. I used the liner in my clear-mount case. The technique will not work as good if you stamp the clear-mount block onto a hard surface. Once my clear-mount block technique was done, I then placed the Whisper White card stock itoward the top right of a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I then took the "big clock" stamp, inked it with an Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad and stamped the Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock. You will need to make sure that a part of the clock is stamped on your Whisper White card stock. I then toook a piece of Early Espresso card stock and made a thin layer under the Whisper White card stock. I placed Stampin' Dimensionals under the Whisper White card stock and adhered it to the Early Espresso card stock layer. I then made sure to line up the clock pieces before adhering the Early Espresso layer onto the Crumb Cake card front. This card was so fun to make. You should give it a try you will have fun too.
