Sunny Studio Stamps - Chloe Numbers Dies


Hello friends!  I am here today with a birthday card to share with you!  I love personalized cards.  The recipient knows that it was made especially for them.  My card today is an 18th birthday card for my shark-loving son.  He has always had a fascination with sharks and ocean life since he was a little boy, and the majority of his birthday cards have been ocean themed.  I was able the really personalize his card this year to celebrate his milestone birthday with the new Chloe Number dies!  

To create my card, I started off with a piece of mint green cardstock cut to 4" x 5.25".  I ink blended the edges with Distress Oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire.  Then, I splattered on some clean water, teal watercolor and watered down white acrylic paint for added interest.  I stamped and colored images from the Best Fishes stamp set and diecut them with the coordinating Best Fishes dies.  I added a sandy bottom to my scene with the Slimline Nature Borders dies, cut from kraft cardstock and inked with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide.  I arranged the images, and popped them up with foam tape.

I used several sentiments from the stamp set to build a custom greeting.  I started by stamping the text images, leaving room for the Chloe Number diecuts.  I diecut the numbers from the same mint cardstock, and stacked 4 of them on top of each other for dimension.  I inked the top layer with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.  To finish off my card, I added some white gel pen accents and some bubbles using Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
