Today’s card is a quick & easy card using the retiring Birthday Blast stamp set!
What I love about this card (besides being quick & easy) is that it can be used for multiple occasions such as birthday, graduation, promotion – basically any reason to celebrate! It would be perfect for a Georgia Tech graduate with the color scheme of Crushed Curry and Basic Black (smile).
This stamp set, Birthday Blast, is on the retiring list and is guaranteed to be available until May 22, at which point it will become while supplies last. It also comes bundled with the Star Blast Edgelits Dies at at 10% discount, which is not guaranteed – only while supplies last!
I stamped the star blast in Crushed Curry on Shimmery White and gently spritzed it with a Stampin’ Spritzer with water to soften the image. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black over top of the background image. Then I flicked some Basic Black ink onto it using a Stampin’ Write Marker – I told you it was one of my favorite techniques to do! Instant texture and oh so easy! For the final touch, I added a silver star from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.
Thanks for stopping by today!
