iPad birthday card …

The guy I made this card for is so hard working – taking holidays very rarely – but he does occasionally take a little time out for his passions … football, cars and gadgets!  So when he recently had a big birthday I made him an iPad card, using stamp images from different Stampin’ Up stamp sets…

I stamped each image in early espresso ink onto a coloured cardstock square, and then adhered to a basic black cardstock base with tombow multi-purpose glue, and added some highlights with a white gel pen.

Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!

cardstock: basic black, pumpkin pie, bashful blue, certainly celery, poppy parade, pink pirouette, daffodil delight, wisteria wonder; stamp sets: happiest birthday wishes hostess set, open sea, circle circus, fox and friends, party this way, schoolbook serif alphabet (retired), sweetheart, artistic etchings, just soccer (retired); ink: early espresso; punches: square, circle; accessories: tombow adhesive, white gel pen.

Party this way Tom!

A while back, my friend Jon asked me to make a card for his nephew, Tom, who is really keen on Ben 10. I didn’t know where to start at first as I have nothing in my craft stash like this at all! So Jon helped me out by giving me a picture of the character which I used as a topper on the card, mounted with stampin’ dimensionals 

I used the very versatile Party This Way stamp set from Stampin Up to stamp candles, balloons and the sentiment in so saffron, old olive and pumpkin pie onto whisper white cardstock, and then mounted these onto a green card base from my stash. 

I love the way it turned out, and does Ben 10 really wear old olive coloured trousers?  If not, it was a very good match!
