Happy Friday, friends, and welcome to this week's Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set release celebration! This week we're featuring the sweet stamp set, Birthday Pals. This darling set features three little critters, a whole bunch of great sentiments, and lots of critter accessories, like the hat my fish is wearing. It even comes with a matching die set! You can see the full set below.
I decided to use the fish on my card and went with some no line water coloring. I used my Distress Inks to do all of the water coloring. The blue background was also created with Distress Inks, which were smooshed on a non-stick craft sheet and spritzed with water. Just place your water color paper into the wet ink for amazing results. All of the little splatters are created by continuing to pick up color from the craft sheet.
I die cut a hole in the card using a Spellbinders die and created the seaweed by hand, again using Distress Inks. The fish and balloon are fussy cut and popped up with foam tape. I added some glossy accents to the balloon and dots on the hat for some shine. The sentiment was created by using the word Best from another sentiment and combining it with Fishes to you, which were embossed in white powder on black cardstock. To finish the card, I added a few white pearls.
I hope you enjoyed today's card! Be sure to head over to the Sweet 'n Sassy web site to see all of the new releases!
