Welcome to the Mama Elephant April Stampede Blog Hop!
Today I'm sharing a birthday card created with the brand new Big Scripty Hello Creative Cuts Die and Big News Stamp Set and coordinating dies. The previously released Birthday Messages Stamp Set, Cloud Nine background die, and Sweet Feline sentiment strips round out this bright and colorful design.

The sentiments take center stage on this fun birthday design but the background needed a bit of interest to help the sentiments and images shine! A background panel was die cut from smooth white cardstock using the Cloud Nine Creative Cuts background die. The panel was inked with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks, spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer, and then blotted dry.
Strips of cardstock in Hero Hues Azalea, Hero Hues Papaya, Gina K Dandelion, Hero Hues Kiwi, Hero Hues Paradise, and Hero Hues Amethyst were die cut into varying widths and adhered to a regular piece of printer paper (trimmed to 3" x 5 1/2"). I added a strong adhesive to the printer paper and then adhered the strips at a diagonal to create my own rainbow patterned background. I used printer paper because it's thin and will die cut better than another piece of cardstock under the cardstock strips.
The Big Scripty Hello was die cut from the rainbow strip background. The Big Scripty Hello was die cut two more times and the dies were adhered one on top of another for a bit of dimension before being secured to the background as shown.
The bear and balloons from the Big News Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with the Inkon3 Fade Out No Line Coloring Ink. The images were colored in with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before being die cut with the coordinating dies:
Bear: 065 mid brown, 072 beige
Sign: 052 bright yellow, 050 yellow
Balloons: 202 peach pink, 200 sugared almond pink, 041 light green, 053 yellow green
The images were adhered to the design with foam adhesive.
Sentiments from the Birthday Messages Stamp Set were stamped on the Hero Hues Azalea, Papaya, and Amethyst cardstock with clear embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, and die cut into strips with a Sweet Feline Creative Cuts die. The phrases were adhered to the design with foam adhesive strips.
The card was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carnation Pink, Ripened Pumpkin, Dandelion Yellow, Apple Green, Caribbean Ocean, and Crushed Grape.
