Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop – December 2021 – Party Time

by Kylie

Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop! Currently, you’re visiting the blog of Kylie at Stampers Workshop! Thanks so much for hopping with us this month. To see the rest of the blogs in the hop, there’s a list below.

The theme for our December 2021 Blog Hop is Party Time.

Party Time made me think of kicking off the New Year with a party, as well as birthday parties. As I have a close friend celebrating her birthday in January I decided to go with making a birthday card. I turned to the super cute new Host Stamp set Mischievous Mice. It is SO adorable! I can’t wait to make more cards with these cute mice. (This stamp set will be available, with a qualifying order, from 4 January 2022).

Here’s the card…

It's Your Birthday! - Stampers Workshop

I have a couple of tips for the above card. Firstly, the Basic Borders die set is great to use to create templates for sponging. I die cut a panel of Basic White cardstock with the cloud type border and sponged on some Balmy Blue ink to make it look like a cloudy sky.

My second tip is to remember Wink of Stella will interact with your sponged ink. For the balloons, when I applied Wink of Stella it started to move the ink around. This is a great technique…but it wasn’t the look I was going for. I still think the balloon is pretty but it isn’t as crisp as it was before I added the shimmer.

It’s such a cute card. I love that it looks like the mouse is flying through the sky, but you could always ground it if you prefer.

I can’t wait to see what the other ladies have created…

Let’s continue on the hop…
