Wishing you a wonderful birthday celebration {Hobbykunst}

Hi, everyone! I’ve got a simple, yet colorful birthday card to share today, featuring stamps from Mathia design. I was actually inspired by a card I made a couple of years ago for this one. It featured a couple of Papirdesign stamps, and I made the card very similarly to this one. You can find that blog post (written in Norwegian) here.

This time I used a Gratulerer sentiment and plenty of inks. From top to bottom they are Plum Pudding (Papertrey Ink), Autumn Rose (Papertrey Ink), Picked Raspberry (Distress Oxide), Worn Lipstick (Distress Ink), Spiced Marmalade (Distress Ink), Fossilized Amber (Distress Oxide), Twisted Citron (Distress Oxide), Cracked Pistachio (Distress Oxide), Peacock Feathers (Distress Oxide), Salty Ocean (Distress Oxide) and Blueprint Sketch (Distress Ink). Distress ink and clear stamps aren’t the best of friends, but if you put VersaMark on the stamp first, then distress ink, you’ll get a better result. The distress ink will stick to the VersaMark and won’t bead up as much.

I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from another Mathia design stamp set and popped it up on black foam tape from Gina K.

Behind the black cardstock piece I put a nest of angel hair. It’s a very very thin thread, and it has actual silver in it. I buy mine at the flower shop, one bag will last a looooong time. I finished off my card with some crystals of unknown origin. I know the brands of most of the stuff in my craft room, but these are a mystery.
