Out of This World Birthday | ft. Lawn Fawn "Beam Me Up"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today I have a birthday card using stamps from the new Lawn Fawn set "Beam Me Up". I showed this set in my recent Haul Video and I couldn't wait to get started playing with it. I have so many more ideas - and not just for Birthdays, but for Mother's Day and Father's Day and Just Because. It's going to be great; so stay tuned!!
To begin, I created a galaxy background using Distress Oxide Inks, I started by randomly sponging on Broken China, Lucky Clover and Wilted Violet, then going over them with slightly darker colours and finally going over the whole panel with Black Soot. I applied an additional layer of the Black Soot around the edges to make it appear darker.
I used my Distress Sprayer to spritz clean water and patted that dry with a paper towel. Once the panel was completely dry, I used some Copic Opaque White to splatter some brighter stars, then set the panel aside to dry again.
I then stamped the ship with the alien, the cake and a couple presents with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock, coloured the images with Copic markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut out all the images.
To create the beam I prepped a piece of vellum with my powder tool and stamped the image with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then fussy cut it out.
Once I decided where I wanted the images to go, I prepped the bottom of the panel with my powder tool and heat embossed the greeting with the same white embossing powder.
I then adhered the gifts and the cake down to the panel and the beam over top, being careful to hide the adhesive behind the embossed lines. I popped the spaceship up on some foam tape and placed him over the beam.
I adhered the panel to a piece of black 65lb cardstock, then mounted the entire lot to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
Finally, I added glossy accents by Ranger over the dome of the ship and over the lights.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and now on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
