Lacy and Lovely Birthday

Tomorrow I get to meet with my sideline team and stamp, eat, chat, and of course stamp! We will also get to participate in a swap if we like - and I rarely say no to a swap! This card uses a technique called Triple Time Stamping. Doesn't it look like I stamped on all the layers? I didn't!

  • I should have taken pics as I was doing this but basically the white card stock layers were adhered with Dotto temporary adhesive and  I cut a Sizzlit Doily and adhered it to the top of the 3 layers. 

  • Then I mixed about 20 drops of Wisteria Wonder reinker and rubbing alcohol into the new Stampin Spritzer bottles and sprayed over the top of the matted card about 8 times, holding the bottle about 12 inches away. You can spray more or less or closer depending on the effect you want. The Wisteria Wonder color pops off the page in real life!

  • Then I stamped with my NEW Lacy & Lovely stamp set in Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise. I actually did this for 2 different swaps so I did 16 in all!!! 

  • After I was done stamping I removed all the white card stock layers from each other and layered them onto my Basic Black card stock. Make sure you don't accidentally have one of the layers upside down - it will be noticeable after you are done and looking at it....ask me how I know!

  • I couldn't find any ribbon that would work with this (I realized later I should have used my Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon - but my brain was overloaded by all the circles I stamped and matched up!) and I wanted my card to say Happy Birthday so I decided to make a banner for my sentiment and I thought it looked better curled on the edges than just lying flat. I also thought sponging the banner in Wisteria Wonder helped separate it from the rest of the card in case the curled banner were to go completely flat in the mail. Adhere the banner with a dimensional.
After I was completed with this and looking at my picture I realized that this might look nice with some pearls or diamonds in the centers of each melon mambo flower - I never know when to stop!
