Hello everyone! I am so excited you are back, as I have a couple of fun techniques packed into one card: emboss resist and tone-on-tone stamping. Both of these techniques are awesome on their own… together they make an even bigger bang!
This card also features the newest STAMPtember exclusive set – Celebrate Your Day – which is in collaboration with Reverse Confetti. And there is an added bonus… All of the profits from this set are going to “The Pink Fund”, which is a charity that is very dear to Jennifer Del Muro (the owner of Reverse Confetti). The Pink Fund offers financial support to women going through breast cancer treatment. I’m thrilled to see the proceeds of this Celebrate Your Day set going to such a great cause, as I believe it is so important to help others.
Note: As with all STAMPtember exclusives, this set is limited edition. Once they sell out, the set will not be restocked.
I LOVE the sentiments in this set; they are playful, bold and just plain fun! When I saw this set, I immediately knew that I wanted to do some emboss resist. But I also wanted to step it up a little and incorporate those fun greetings like “this calls for cake” and “time to party”. Tone-on-tone stamping seemed like the perfect option for pairing with this set and the emboss resist!
I chose Simon Says Stamp inks for my ink blending: Hot Lips, Clementine, Jellybean, Scuba and Hot Mama. A slight twist on the traditional ROYGBV color spectrum, but I think that’s part of what makes the card so much fun! For the tone-on-tone stamping, I stamped the sentiments in between each “celebrate” word (those were the heat embossed parts of the background); as I added the sentiments, I made sure to stamp with the same ink blended color that was going to be underneath it.
I then added some of those fun sentiments onto colored banners and adhered them at wonky angles on the background. And of course, a card this colorful can’t be complete without some sequins! So I pulled out the new Rainbow Confetti mix from Simon’s STAMPtember release and adhered those to the background as well.
I had a blast pulling this card together and seeing the two techniques of emboss resist and tone-on-tone stamping join up for a unique combo! Be sure to check out the video below to see how I made the card!
Thanks for visiting with me today… I’ll be back with more to share very soon!
