Do you have any stamp sets you haven’t inked up in your stash? I have several……to be honest quite a few. Lol! After perusing my stamps I felt my Tabs for Everything stamp set would be perfect to ink up. Today’s share – Tabs for Everything Happy Birthday is the first card having fun with this versatile stamp set.
I love a clean and simple design with a punch of color. With a few images (okay 6, but hey they’re small – giggle) from the numerous to choose from in the Tabs for Everything stamp set I stamped this fun and bright masculine or gender neutral Tabs for Everything Happy Birthday design. I needed something to get my mojo flowing so a big thank you to Doro Engel for this lovely design, minus the tab on her design.
The base is Basic Gray layered with Bermuda Bay and Whisper White. “Happy Birthday” from the Tabs for Everything Stamp Set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. To add more dimension these layers were popped with, well, Dimensionals. [smile]
For subtle texture Stitched Shapes Framelits are cool, the set includes not only Squares but Circles AND Ovals shapes. They cut your desired shape AND add faux stitching around the edges. Super cool! The Bermuda Bay square was cut using the second smallest Square and topped a Whisper White square. Ding, ding, ding here comes a [TIP–To easily center an image, stamp onto your cardstock then cut using the coordinating die OR punch.] For another layer of dimension this Bermuda Bay square was popped with dimensionals as well. [grin]
Finally, is the mini cake surround by a circle. This is a three step stamp deal. Yup! First stamp the circle, then the cake outline within the circle (it’s Photopolymer so easy peasy), then the solid cake to color in the cake. Voila’……a fun itty bitty teeny weeny fun birthday cake. The final touch is to punch the circle with a 3/4″ Circle punch and pop with a dimensional for the final layer of dimension. Love it!
This is the first of three cards using the Tabs for Everything stamp set.
