HI friends!! On our recent Stampin' Up! cruise to Alaska, we got to celebrate a very special birthday ALL WEEK LONG!! My hubby, Eric, turned 60 and we took advantage of each special opportunity, adventure and restaurant as a way to celebrate his milestone!! I'll be sharing more of his birthday cards over the coming week or so, and today I wanted to share one I made for him featuring the "One for All" and "Around the Corner" stamp sets from Stampin' UP!
I had fun inking up a Spectrum rainbow pad from Stampin' UP! with blue and green reinkers (ink refills) and then using it with the lovely bold Happy Birthday stamp from the One for All set as the focal point. I also used it around the edge of the card with the Around the Corner set to pull in all these fun colors!
The colors I used on my rainbow pad:
Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Blueberry Bushel.
Before inking the uninked Spectrum pad, I like to take my Stampin' Write markers and color a swatch of them to make sure I like the combo (as shown above).
I stamped this bold image onto Glossy paper to ensure really bold bright color and coverage, then added it to the card.
You'll find the One for All stamp set in the current 2018-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog on page 37, and the Around the Corner set on page 40. You'll find all the supplies to create your own card at the bottom of this blog post. Click any of the product photos to purchase that papercrafting product in my online Stampin' Up! store.
The 60 was cut out of the Broadway Bound Designer paper pack.
We thought it was appropriate to celebrate Eric's 60th "Milestone" birthday at Milestone's restaurant in Victoria, B.C. on our Alaska cruise last week! 🙂
Thanks for joining me today!
