Hello everyone. Today we are celebrating someone’s birthday… It’s Joy Clair 4th Birthday!!! Come and join the birthday party with us and there are prizes to win too…
For this Joy Clair, I made this Barn Party step card for this special birthday…
On my card today I am using one of the new released stamp sets called Barn Party. This stamp set is packed with adorable farm animal, big barn, and fun sentiments. It is one of my favorite sets from this month release.
First, I cut the shapes of these stamp set using their SVG digital dies that comes with the set. I open the digital dies with Silhouette Studio Software and then cut them with my Silhouette Cameo.
I use the negative cut for stamping. I put it on my MISTI stamping tool, and then adding each shape inside the negative cut, add stamp them using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad.. It is so easy to stamp multiple times with this tool!
After stamping all the images, I colored them with Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and small waterbrush.
For the card base, I cut a heavyweight white cardstock using ODBD Side Step Card Die using my Gemini Junior machine. And then, I added couple cloud on the card using make up sponge, Tumble Glass Distress Ink Pad, and cloud masks that come with the Cloud ARTplorations Stencil.
Next step, I added each colored piece of the Barn Party on the step card using Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue.
And for the sentiment, I stamped it on a white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black and trimmed it into sentiment strip. For the piece to rise it up on the back of the card, I stamped the Wood Background Stamp on a piece of cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink Pad using second generation stamping technique to get the softer look. I trimmed it and added the sentiment strip on it. I punched couple circles using WRMK Crop-A-Dile Eyelet and Snap Punch tool and added them on it as the nails on the wood.
Then I added some grass under the sentiment wood sign that I cut out of green cardstocks using ODBD grass die sets.
Card is done and now… It’s time to party…
