Laser-Cut Cards Part 2

I’m back today to share the remaining 6 cards made using the Bird Ballard Laser-Cut Cards & Tin.

 

 

In creating these cards I’ve used the remaining bird images that I cut from 1 sheet of the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper, added some coloured cardstock behind the laser-cut card, some die cuts, sentiments and a few embellishments. Once I had the birds cut out the cards come together really easily.

For these 6 cards the colours I’ve used are Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede and a the Bird Cage sheet from the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper.  All the colours used coordinate with the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper. I have lifted the birds up on most of the cards using Stampin’ Dimensionals, in some cases using a double stack where they are off the die cut shape as all the dies have been mounted using Stampin’ Dimensionals also. The sentiments are from Label Me Bold, Itty Bitty Birthdays or New Wonders Hostess Set.

Celebrate with Cake

Todays card is made using the ‘Piece of Cake’ and ‘Itty Bitty Birthdays’ stamp sets. My card inspiration came from Brian King’s card which you can check out here. I loved how he created a background using the sentiment.

I started out by stamping the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White card. I have used 1st, 2nd & 3rd generation stamping to give the varied ink colour. I then layered onto a piece of Pool Party card, a piece of Bermuda Bay and finally onto a Smoky Slate base card. I stamped my image onto Whisper White card and coloured with my Stampin’ Blends before punching out with the Cake Builder punch that coordinates with the ‘Piece of Cake’ stamp set. I punched out a vellum circle using the 2 1/4″ circle punch. I’ve adhered the vellum circle to the card using a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue just in the centre so it would be behind the cake. I have then attached the cake using Stampin’ Dimensionals. My final touch was to add a couple of Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
