Hello Inspired By Stamping Friends!

Kendra here today from Luv 2 Scrap N’ Make Cards to share a fun Birthday card with you!!

I started by collecting my supplies:

Distress Inks

Blending Tool

Black Ink

Painter’s Tape

Cardstock

Stamp Set(s) – I am using Happy Sentiments

——————

I started by first masking the sides to create a white frame.

This is optional, you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to.  I just wanted a nice white crisp frame!

 ** TIP: Painter’s tape can on occasion tare the paper, so I usually stick the tape to me pants or shirt I am wearing to make them a little less sticky, so it doesn’t tare the paper! **

Also, maybe another tip, I have not tried this, but after creating this I seen a post where someone uses washi tape for masking.  I’ll be trying that next!!

Now the fun, in my opinion really begins!!

Using another piece of painter’s tape, run it across your card stock any way you wish.  I decided to go on a slight diagonal slant.

Add some distress ink!  I decided to do one color for each section.

When you like how it looks, peal the tape off carefully!

Then for my next color I will need to put two pieces of tape.  You can either put the tape right where your last color ends, or leave a little space.  I decided to leave a little space to leave a white line.

Once again add some ink, this time I went with a yellow!!

Isn’t it so much fun so far?!  I think so!
Repeat steps for each ink color you use till the bottom!
My finished card:

As I mentioned in my supply list above I used the fun Happy Sentiments stamp set for my sentiment.

And finished the card off by adding some enamel dots!!

I hope I’ve inspired you to try this fun and simple technique out!
