Stamping the elements

Coloring the images

I then colored all the images using the Copic markers (or any medium of your choice)

Once I was happy with the coloring I fussy cut them all to create the scene

Creating the Scene

And then my favorite thing of card making is creating the scene. I started with ink blending the dye inks as mentioned above in the supplies to all the pre die cut panels. 

Assembling the Card

And the I assembled all my elements on to the slimline cardstock so create a scene depicting all are getting ready for the birthday party. 

Add Ons

To add more fun and birthday elements like the balloons, caps and more fun I used the Make a Wish stampset which has got all the birthday elements.

Creating the Card


I started with the stenciling on the Iris White Paper from the Birthday Theme Kit using the latest release of the Watercolor line Stencils affixed on the paper with the washi tape.

I started with the rainbow coloring using the above mentioned dye inks in the same sequence with the heavy hand. I then removed the stencil such that the negative spaces of the stencil now is at the white edges using the same dye inks but with the lighter hand now.

I ensured that the saturation of the colors was more at the bottom than at the top of the base cardstock to give an added interest.

Roses & Leaves

 I stamped the roses from the Layered Rose stampet which comes in the same Birthday Theme Kit and colored it using the Daniel Smith watercolors (you may use any medium of your choice to color the roses and the leaves).

Assembling the Card

Once I was all happy with the coloring I adhered all my roses and the leaves suing the 3D foam tape to give the added dimension.

Once everything was ready I used the Tubby Craft Jet Black Dye Ink to stamp the sentiments from the same set.

Finally I pasted the card base on to the Black Cardstock to pop up the colors..

And tadaa... the card is ready..

Two amazing anniversary cards by Anushree

Hi Everyone !! Hope you all are doing good and crafting too. I have two cards for today. I have highlighted  different techniques for each card. Onto my first card, I have tried showcasing repeated stamping in a border style . I have used Plumeria Florals stamp set and Jet Black dye ink from Tubby craft to stamp the border first. Next I chose Imperial Red and Lead gray dye inks from Tubby Craft to color my florals. Sentiment is a die cut on Gold card stock and the card is embellished in gold peals. For border,I have adhered Gold border die cut to enhance the card on a black cardstock. Now onto my second card, I am using Checkered Stencil for the background .I have used rainbow colors from Tubby Craft Dye ink collection to put them on paper using blending brushes. I masked the center with a circle die cut before applying inks to the card base. Once stenciled background is ready,I removed the mask and stamped sentiment from Luc

Card 1 To make this card, I die cut out the white card stock and stamped the penguins by masking them using Black tubby craft ink.

After that I stamped the balloons and the sentiment. Added stamped and fussy cut gift too.  Finally adhered it on matching note card and added some matching s
