Happy 5th Birthday Preston, Amazing Life Birthday Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan

Today is a good day! Happy 10th Birthday Preston!
10 years ago today, we were blessed with the most sweetest, people loving, handsome, boy we could have asked for.  We love him more than we could have ever imagined.  He loves to try new things and to be with the people he loves.  I cannot believe he is 10 years old…life flies by so fast!

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″. Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock to 4 1/16″ x 5 5/16″. 
  4. Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Add a watercolor wash of Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Early Espresso.  Adhere to the Early Espresso Cardstock.  Use the Classic Label Punch to create the notches for the Linen Thread.  Wrap the Linen Thread around 3 times and secure with a bow.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the “So Happy” sentiment in Versamark Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock (two times).  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 
  6. Crop one with the Big Shot and largest Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Snip the “so” and “life” from the other with a Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Color the “Happy” and “banner” with Watercolor Pencils.  Use Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Early Espresso to create the ombre effect. 
  8. Stamp the “Happy Birthday” and “Let’s Celebrate You” sentiments (Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Versamark Ink onto Early Espresso Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool.

The focal point of this card: “So Happy To Have You In My Life” is from an all new stamp set called Amazing Life.  I absolutely LOVE the mix fonts and the sentiments say exactly what I feel. This set is Photopolymer (clear) and is also part of a bundle (shown below).

Watercolor Paper from Stampin’ Up! is extremely high quality and perfect for those watercolor wash backgrounds.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Early Espresso as my background, which mimics the colors of Watercolor Pencils I used to color in the sentiment.
