Hello and Welcome!!!
Watch video tutorial here!!!
For today’s masculine birthday card let’s do a bit of paper piecing! This is a good way to use up some of your leftover paper scraps! We will be using the super fun Ai Sit Back Laugh Lines Set (5421) for the focal image and the sentiment on this card. We will also be using the Ai Birthday Journal Set (5722) for the balloons. The cupcakes are from an older Ai Stamp Set that has unfortunately been discontinued, however, you can use any of your cake or cupcake images here.
This card was inspired by the current Ai “Midnight Snack” Blog Challenge! What better way to enjoy a snack than to have lots of cupcakes on hand! We’d love to see your creations….so please join us by submitting your own card or project using any foods including cupcakes, cake, fruit, veggies, or anything else you would like to surprise us with!
We will be stamping this fun guy several times and then piecing it together. This is great for those of you who don’t necessarily love the coloring process or for those of you who want to try something a bit different! So lets stamp the image onto some white Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and then onto several other pattern papers. You will need a separate color for the chair, shirt, pants, and slippers. And for the balloons we can stamp directly onto the pattern papers in three different patterns.
The papers we will be using are from the Ai Harvest Journal Paper Pack (5606) and the Ai Halloween Journal Paper Pack (5605).
So let’s quickly color in just a few areas of this little guy….the face, hair and arms/legs. Let’s also quickly color the cupcakes. For the coloring I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Yellow, Orange, Smoky Teal, Green Gray, Lt Gray, Gray, Beige, Mid Brown.
Now we can take our detail scissors and cut out the individual items from the pattern papers and glue them onto the white image. I just love his plaid shirt and his polka dot pants!
To set the scene, lets add some striped wallpaper…and we will die cut this using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063). This will give a nice stitched border all the way around the card. We can add a white border at the bottom and some black pattern paper for the floor.
Finally, let’s stamp the sentiment and assemble the card! And for a finishing touch we can add some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to the frosting on the cupcakes!
