Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop- Happy Birthday

Hey there!  Welcome back to another Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog hop!  If you are hopping with us today then you may have arrived here from the fabulous Cathy Caines.  Isn't she amazing? As we are a group of 20 demonstrators from around the world- our blogs are written in many different languages.  Please be sure to use Google Translate so that you can follow along in your language.  You don't wanna miss out on any of the fabulous details!

For our hop today I'm featuring the Happy Birthday Thinlits die from the brand new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  
I love how versatile this die can be.  It pairs so well with many different stamp sets, can be used on it's own or cut apart and used separately.

To create the banners, I used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This DSP has 3 single sided foil patterns in 4 different colors.  The colors in the paper are Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango.  Each banner measures 1/2" x 1-1/2" and was adhered to the front of the card using a tiny strip of Fast Fuse along the top portion of the banner.    

Using the Labeler Alphabet and Lemon Lime Twist ink- each letter was carefully stamped onto a 1/2"  Whisper  White circle then adhered to the banner using a Stampin' Dimensional.

Quite possibly my favorite element on this entire card is the Birthday die cut.  It's so shiny!  To create this effect- I first cut out the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  I then used Paper Snips to cut the Happy portion away.  Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen- I then proceeded to fill in the entire Birthday image.  It was set aside to dry and then was adhered to the front of the card.  
I love how such a simple process can add a special effect to a card.

I hope you have enjoyed my project!  If you're ready to continue along on the hop, click the Artisan button below to head on over to the amazingly talented Holly Stene!
