June Stamp-of-the-Month: Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

Hi Stamping Friends!

Registration is now open for my June Stamp-of-the-Month Class Kit featuring the sweet images in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous photopolymer stamp set, the awesome Happy Birthday Thinlit die-cut, and the cool Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper! 

Wow!  What a fun suite of products!  It was so much fun to create this class!  I love that extra-large Happy Birthday die-cut so very much and I know you will, too!  Plus, the bright & shiny Foil Frenzy colors & patterns give these birthday cards lots of extra pizzazz!  I hope you love these cards as much as I do!      

Today, I'm sharing a couple of the cards you can create with this class kit…

Happy Birthday Copper Foil Frenzy Cards

For the first pair of cards from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous class, I went a little foil crazy combining the Foil Frenzy papers with a Copper Foil die-cut.  I loved this combo and they look even more AMAZING in real life!  Let's take a closer look at that cool new paper…

Foil frenzy 144125G

Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper—The 12×12" package includes 3 foil on kraft card stock designs in 4 colors: Berry Burst, Tangerine Tango, Lemon Lime Twist and Soft Sky.  But, the color coordination doesn't end there.  The shiny foil colors are very versatile because they also look fantastic with similar colors, like Melon Mambo, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz & Pool Party! 

My class participants will receive a 1/2 pack of this glamorous paper and will have lots left over for their own projects!

Background Basics—My first card starts with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Soft Sky dotted pattern from Foil Frenzy DSP mounted onto a Dapper Denim card base.

Recessed Window Layer—I die-cut a Layering Circles Framelits window near the top of a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Pool Party card stock. Next, I stamped a Happy Birthday Gorgeous greeting in Dapper Denim at the bottom right.  I cut a 3-1/4" square Whisper White layer, applied some SNAIL to the back, then lined it up with the Pool Party layer to help me position it over the card front.

Shimmer Ribbon—Before attaching the window layer, I tied some 3/8" Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon around the layer.  Look how that ribbon picks up the light!  So shimmery!  I used lots of Dimensionals to pop up this layer to finish the recessed window look.

Birthday Die-Cut—I die-cut the greeting from Copper Foil with the Happy Birthday Thinlit. 
Die-Cutting TIP: I recommend using the Precision Base Plate and Die Brush for the most successful die-cutting with Thinlits.  Also, if your Big Shot is older than 2016, it helps to purchase the new Big Shot Platform because it has a 2mm raised center for extra cutting pressure.  All Big Shots order after June 2016 will have that platform included.  Check out my Too Cool Tips Video—Smooth Foil Die-Cuts.
Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and the Happy Birthday Thinlit together in a bundle and save 10% off the cost of purchasing them separately.

Two Cool—The second card is the same basic design…I just changed up the colors!  This time I selected the chevron Lemon Lime Twist Foil Frenzy DSP pattern and mounted it on an Old Olive card base.

The window layer is Pear Pizzazz and the greeting is stamped in Old Olive ink.  I used the perfectly coordinated Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon, too.  Loveliness!
