Holy Sh*t You’re Old! by Becca

October 19, 2019

When I took a poll on my Instagram about what stamp from the quarter 3 release people were most excited to see me create with, Holy Sh*t won by a landslide! I combined it with another one of my favorite new stamp sets, Mari Party, for a sassy birthday card. This is your warning, from here on the photos will not be censored and contain adult language!

I started with a piece of light blue card stock and white heat embossed the present image from Mari Party along the bottom.

Next I stamped the presents and balloons from Mari Party onto sticky notes, and fussy cut them out to create masks.

I want to create an entire background of balloons, so it looks like they go on forever! To achieve this look I stamp, cover it with a mask, then stamp again. I move around my two balloon masks until the whole background is covered. For a tone on tone look I stamp on light blue cardstock with Memento Bahama Blue ink.

After revealing the masking I loved the way the balloon background looked, but felt the presents were blending in too much instead of standing out in the foreground. To fix this, I painted in the presents. I smooshed the same ink pad I used for the balloons onto my glass mat and added different amounts of water to get different shades of blue. I used a paint brush to watercolor it on. Since It was a small area and wasn’t blending, along with using minimal water, this worked fine on the card stock.

For the sentiment/ focal image I used the largest image from Holy Sh*t.  I stamped in versamark then heat embossed using purple glitter embossing powder. For extra dimension on the letters I kept the stamp in my stamp positioner so I could stamp/heat emboss multiple times on top of each other. To help the heat embossing letters stand out from the busy background I outlined them with a white GellyRoll gel pen.

To finish off the card front I stamped “you’re old” from the same Holy Sh*t stamp set onto a sentiment strip and heat embossed the edges. I popped it up on foam tape, then sprinkled some clear confetti around the card for some extra birthday flair.

On the inside of the card I heat embossed Happy Birthday from Mari Party in purple glitter, and stamped presents onto the bottom in Bahama blue ink.

I had so much fun creating this sassy birthday card to share! Did you enjoy seeing a step by step of the card along with my explanation of my thinking process? Or do you like short blog posts where I get to the point better? Comment here or hop on over to my Instagram to let me know! I love hearing from you.
