Simply Celebrate Birthday Cards!

 Hello and Welcome! Lately I have been trying to use stamps and dies that I bought but haven't used yet (and there are a few). Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Simply Celebrate Critters along with their Dad Jokes stamp set. 

For this first card, I started with an A2 sized card base from smooth black heavyweight cardstock. I die cut a panel from smooth white cardstock using MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX in the largest size. 

I placed a piece of removable tape across the panel, then I stamped the speech bubble on to the top part of the card background. I created a mask to cover the speech bubble and using my MFT Mini Cloud Edges stencil and Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers, created the cloud sky. I removed the tape and repositioned it on top of the line of clouds and used the MFT Small Brick Wall Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in Candied Apple to create the brick wall. Then with my Copic markers in Neutral Grey, I created the grout between the bricks.

I stamped the cats using Lawn Fawn's Black Ink and colored them in using Copic markers. I used the corresponding dies to cut the cats out. Then I trimmed the white edge on the bottom of the cats. I glued to them the panel so they look like they are on the top of the wall. 

I removed the mask from the speech bubble and stamped the funny dad jokes and sentiments from the Simply Celebrate Critters and Dad Jokes stamp sets. 

I used Lawn Fawn's Scripty Birthday die and die cut the word twice, once from dark blue glitter cardstock and once from black cardstock. Then I glued the pieces together to give the word some dimension. I stamped the word "Wishes" from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy stamp set on black cardstock and used white embossing powder. Then glued the sentiment below.

For my second card, I started with the same A2 sized black cardstock base. Then cut a similar panel from smooth white cardstock, this time when I added the the tape, I just made the clouds. I created the wall the same as before only this time I didn't color in the grout between the bricks. 

I die cut a panel using MFT A2 Stitched Rectangles in the largest size using green cardstock, then I cut grass out using MFT Tucked and Turf - Horizontal die. I used Distress Oxide ink in Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness to give the grass some detail. 

I stamped the dogs and speech bubbles using Lawn Fawn's Black Ink and colored the dogs in using Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiments into the speech bubbles and glued them to card along with the dog, carefully trimming the white bottom edge like I did with the cats. 

I die cut the word Yappy using Lawn Fawn's Oliver's Stitched ABC's using light blue glitter cardstock. Then I die cut it again from black cardstock and glued the pieces all together. 

I stamped the sentiments "wishing you a" and "birthday" from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy stamp set on smooth black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I glued the sentiments and word Yappy onto the card. 

I just love how funny and adorable these two cards turned out. The dad jokes are hilariously silly and total Dad jokes! Perfect for a masculine card. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
