Happy Birthday (From All of Us)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, the super cute critters from the From All of Us stamp set are making another appearance today.  They are so adorable.  I am so enjoying colouring the image with my Stampin’ Blends but, of course, you could use your preferred colouring medium.  If you are unsure what colours to use I recently shared my colour combos on the Stampers Workshop Facebook page.

What’s different about today’s card is that I created more of a scene rather than just having them on their own.  The stamp set comes with two trees, or they could be used just as branches, and I thought it would be fun to have these showing in the background.  You will need to do some masking to achieve this look.  Stamp the critters first and then on a post-it note (I like the ones which have adhesive all over the background rather than just the top).  Cut out the post-it note.  My tip for this is to cut towards the inside edge of the stamped line so that you don’t end up with a halo effect (and if you take a look near the face of the ostrich you can see what I mean). If you do end up with a halo you can, of course, just leave it or you can use your Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in the gaps. Position the post-it note over your original stamped image and then you are ready for the next step.  Stamp the trees in place.  Remove the post-it notes and voila there’s your scene!  Looks great, doesn’t it?!

I also used Versamark to stamp the trees repeatedly over my card base.  I love this subtle look.

Here’s my card


Oh, these critters are just the cutest!  I hope you will enjoy crafting with the From All of Us stamp set as much as I do.  I also hope you’ll give masking a go.  It’s so easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie
