Summer is coming to a close but the heat can make it too miserable to be outside. Those are the best days to play with paper! A quick clean up of the house and I can spend the rest of the day in my crafty getaway place.
This is a card I created during my playtime today, I love using watercolor pencils to color in my stamps. You can find a video on the technique I use at the end of this post.

Bella’s Party Stamp Birthday Card Tutorial
I started with a white card blank, 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Next I cut a piece of blue cardstock 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered to the front of the card blank.
Then I cut a piece of white cardstock 3-3/4″ x 5″ and stamped the design onto it using my new Tim Holtz Stamping Platform which I’m finding awesome!
The design was made from Bella’s Party Stamp by Wild Rose Studio. I stamped it on white cardstock and colored it in.
The technique for coloring the image can be seen in this video.
I made a frame of blue cardstock by using two rectangle stitch dies, for first I cut the outside rectangle approximately 4-1/2″ x 3″ and then used a smaller die to cut out the inside and glued it to the front of the card.
I cut a piece of blue cardstock 2-1/2″ x 1-3/4″
And a piece of white cardstock 2-1/4″ x 1-1/2″
You may need to adjust the size of this in accordance with the sentiment you are using.
I stamped the Happy Birthday onto this and adhered to the front of the card. Now stamp the inside with your favorite verse!
