Sunny Studio: Hoppy Birthday

Hello friends! Amy here with a cheerful and fun birthday card I made by combining three stamp sets together: Froggy FriendsTurtley AwesomeEaster Wishes. These adorable critters are here to wish someone a very Hoppy Birthday.

To create my front panel, I used a cloud stencil to color the background using Distressink in Stormy Skies. I also colored the die cut hill using Twisted Citron and added it to the front panel using foam adhesive (for dimension).

To add the party hats to the turtles and the chicks for a cleaner and more seamless look, I used the masking technique. Masking is a simple technique where you cover a stamped image so that the other images may be placed over it. First, I stamped the party hat on masking paper and cut it out. Next, I stamped a couple of hats on white card stock . I adhered the mask over the corresponding images. Then, I stamped the the turtles and the chicks over each hat.  Finally, I stamped the rest of the images I used on the card and colored them with copic markers.

Isn't the frog on this card the cutest thing? His expression just makes me smile. Since this frog is a jumping image, I thought it would be clever to make him wobble.  So I made my own wobble spring using some craft wire and tape.

I hope you like today's card. I had so much fun coloring these images and putting this card together. Thank you for stopping by, and I look forward to sharing more cards with you next time!
