Hey all! I hope your Monday is going smoothly. I'm in the craft room all week getting ready for my Open House on Saturday. Today, I'm playing with the Birthday Wit set and I just had to share!.
This set has some great remarks for funny or sarcastic birthday cards, which I am all about. Today's cards use the Dietary Restrictions stamp. As someone with a spastic colon and numerous dietary restrictions, I find this hilarious! And I happen to know a number of moms of school age kids who would love it too!
I think this is one of those stamps that just looks better in multiple colors. To find my pallete, I thumbed through the Tutti Frutti DSP stack. I ended up with five colors I probably wouldn't have put together, but ended up loving.
To get the different colors, there are two methods: use Stampin' Write Markers (not Blends!) to color each line separately or you can stamp the entire panel multiple times. If you're making multiples I suggest the latter, since we'll be cutting each line out anyway. Prop them up with dimensionals and you've got a totally polished look in no time!
These cards took about 5 minutes each from start to finish and they pack in the laughs and the color. These are good for both men and women, especially those who can take a joke! 😉
