VIDEO | Birthday Chickies + Giveaway

Hello there, today I have the pleasure of being the Special Video Guest over at Your Next Stamp as part of their birthday celebrations. Today I am sharing  a peek a boo birthday and card and matching tag.
 
 
For the card, I started off with a panel of white cardstock. I die cut the larger of the two dies from the Peek a Boo Trio Doors Die Set on to this. I then took the Birthday Chickies stamp set and stamped three chicks on to the front of the doors using black ink. I masked these off using post it notes. The sentiment was then stamped below.
 

I took a craft knife and cut around the little tabs on the side of the windows, I then opened these up slightly. I took another panel of white cardstock the same size and placed this behind. I then drew a faint line with a pencil inside of the open windows. The whole of the chick images were then stamped on this panel and coloured with Copic Markers (as well as the partial ones on the front panel).
 
 
The bottom panel was adhered to a yellow card base and then the top piece added on top with foam tape. I think the from panel being popped up helps the windows to open better.

For the tag, I took a piece of white cardstock and cut the tag from the Cool Tag Three Die set. I then cut the Puffy Cloud dies from masking paper. I adhered the mask to the tag and used my Copic Airbrush to create a cloud/sky background. I moved the mask as I went down the tag. The sentiment, from the Cool Tag Banner Sentiments set was stamped at the bottom.
 
 
I took the chick from the Birthday Chickies set and stamped this in black on to more white cardstock. The image was then coloured with Copics. I used the matching die to then cut him out. He was adhered to the tag with foam tape. To finish off, I added some Doodlebug Twine to the top of the tag.

Anniversary Pandas

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I sent to my aunt and uncle to celebrate their wedding anniversary. I thought the ME Pandamonium pandas would be perfect for the card.
 

I started off by stamping the pandas using black ink to a piece of white cardstock. I then added a little bit of colour with Copics before fussy cutting out. I then took the sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted Round Roses stamp set, and stamped this on to black cardstock using Versamark ink. I added white embossing powder to this and then heat set. It was then cut out.
 
 
I took a piece of PTI Pure Poppy cardstock and cut this using a Nestabilities Classic Heart die. I then added a little ink blending around the edges for some depth. I used Festive Berries and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks. I took a white 4.75" card base and used the largest of the SSS Stitched Square dies to emboss the image on to the front. I have a video showing how to do this here.
 
 
I added the heart on to the card base with tape runner, along with the sentiment piece. I then added the pandas on top with foam tape.
