Happy Birthday Thinlits & Watercolor Pencils

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a nice weekend! It was extremely hot in my neck of the woods.  Thank goodness for air conditioning!

Today’s card is one that I almost didn’t post.  I made it about a month ago and several times I thought about sharing it and then changed my mind at the last minute.  After completing it I wished I had blended the colors more so I put it away.  But I’ve learned that just because I don’t care for something, it doesn’t mean that it won’t appeal to someone else! 

I placed color down on Shimmery White cardstock using the Bermuda Bay and Old Olive Watercolor pencils and then went over it all with the Aqua Painter.  I cut Happy Birthday out in Bermuda Bay, three times, and layered them on top of each other for dimension.  I gave it a finishing touch with several sparkly rhinestones.

Happy Birthday Thinlits Day 3

I’m back with another card showcasing the Happy Birthday Thinlits, a new die in the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.   I started out by sponging a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Pacific Point.  

My intention was to use the piece as a background for a card but I didn’t care for how it turned out so I pulled out my Big Shot and used the Happy Birthday Thinlits to cut out the words Happy Birthday! Perfect solution!  

I cut three more using Bermuda Bay cardstock and then stacked them on top of each other (using the Fine Tip Glue Pen) to create more dimension.  The embossing on my Whisper White cardstock was created using  the Softly Falling embossing folder and the Big Shot.  

I received my order with all new goodies from Stampin’ Up! late yesterday afternoon which included the Iridescent Sequins so I added a few to my card.  I love the little bit of sparkle they add!

Today’s the last day of my Mini-Series using the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  This brand new die is one that I know I’ll reach for over and over again so you’ll definitely see more ideas in the future!

Happy Birthday Thinlits Mini-Series

I’m back with another Mini-Series and this time the focus is on the brand new Happy Birthday Thinlits. I did the happy dance when I saw these in the new catalog.  I love the font and the size is perfect!

I paired the Thinlits with paper from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack which comes in all 5 new In Colors.  

The Happy Birthday Thinlits are very easy to cut out using a Big Shot.  To add more dimension to my card, I cut three out using Thick Whisper White cardstock and then glued them on top of each other. It’s easy to do this with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
