Birthday Ninjas

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you that I made for my nephew for his birthday last week. I used the Tiny Ninjas set from Mama Elephant, along with my favourite die from them plus some Clearly Besotted stencils. 

I started off by creating the background. I took a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of white cardstock and blended Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks on top. I used Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot. I then took the Clearly Besotted Tale of Two Cities Stencil and placed it towards the bottom of the panel. I then pounced, rather than blended, Black Soot Distress Ink on top.

I left the panel to dry for the a little while and while I was doing that, I made a mask for the buildings. I simply drew around the inside of the stencil on to mask paper and cut it out. It was placed over the panel and then I placed the Clearly Besotted Sunny Day Stencil on top. With this one, I blended Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink inside for some light rays.  Once the whole panel was dry, I die cut it using the Mama Elephant Big Happy Birthday Die and popped the wording out. I added the panel to a white 4.75" x 6" card base with tape runner. I then die cut three more of the birthday die cuts from white cardstock and stacked them up for an inlay look

To complete the eclipse look, I adhered the ink blended ones on top. I then took three ninjas from the Mama Elephant Tiny Ninjas Stamp Set and stamped them on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. I added them to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I stamped the sentiment from the set on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with tape runner.

Since the card was an odd shape, I did make my own envelope using the WRMK 123 Punch Board. Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today. I really do appreciate it. I hope you are having a great week so far! Take care!


  1. This is amazing! I love all the stencil work and the fabulous big greeting popped up - looks fabulous! What a great card for your nephew and I'm sure he loved it!

  2. Always been a fan of the ninjas and you've reminded me that it's such an easy stamp to use - literally requires only a little bit of colouring. The stencils with it look brilliant too. I do like the Tale of Two Cities one xxx
