Birthday Card!

 It's Tuesday which means that you've got Kathi here to share a project with you. This week my teammates and I are showcasing Gel Presses, paints, inks, and sprays. 

I've made a birthday card created with the circle from the Gel Press Petites. The set includes small circle, square, and triangle gel presses. I also used the Heavenly Circles Stencil by PolkadoodlesMelina's Sketched Birds and Branches Clear Stamp Set and Melina's ATC Backgrounds Clear Stamp Set by That's Crafty with sentiments from the More Classic and Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Sets by Heffy DoodleDella BlueConfettiMulberryHennaDark Denim, and Pine Elements Inks by Lavinia Stamps were used to add color. 

Here's the card. 

As you can see, I've used the Gel Press Petites to create a background by using it as a stamp with the Heavenly Circles Stencil and Elements Inks.

Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink was used to stamp a bird from Melina's Sketched Birds Clear Stamp Set by That's Crafty onto a panel of Mixed Media paper and onto masking paper, which was fussy-cut and placed atop its counterpart.

Using a stamping platform, one of the branches from Melina's Sketched Birds Clear Stamp Set was positioned so that the bird would appear to be perching on it. It was stamped with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink onto the image panel and onto Repositionable Label Paper. The label paper version was fussy-cut and placed over its counterpart.

Della Blue Elements Ink was sponged over the masked images onto the panel then used to stamp the circles background from Melina's ATC Backgrounds Clear Stamp Set by That's Crafty over top.

The mask was lifted and the image panel was heat set. A paint brush was used with Della BlueConfettiMulberryHennaDark Denim, and Pine Elements Inks to watercolor the bird and the branch.

The 5" x 7" Gel Press2" Speedball Brayer, and Della Blue Elements Inkwere used to ink another piece of Mixed Media paper. The inked piece was cut in half. Della Blue Elements Ink was sponged over a dot stencil, then trimmed to mat the image panel.

Della Blue Elements Ink was used to stamp the "happy birthday" and "celebrate" sentiments from Heffy Doodle's Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Set and "it's your big day" sentiment from the More Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Set onto the second inked piece. The sentiments were all die-cut. 

Della Blue Elements Ink was sponged around the periphery of a 5" x 7" white card so that it would match the background and image panels perfectly..

The circles background panel was adhered to the card, then the sentiments and image panel were adhered to finish the card.
