Local King Rubber Stamp Lighthouse Birthday Card

This is my husbands birthday card.  For this card, I used multiple stamp sets, but the main image is from Local King Rubber Stamp.

For this card I used:
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black, Danube Blue, Teal Zeal, Summer Sky
Lawn Fawndementals - Mermaid
Copic Markers - G28, R59, R37, 100, C1, C3, C5, E09, E31, E35, E37, E70
Local King Rubber Stamp - Seascapes stamps and Dies
Gina K - By the Sea 2 Stamp set
Seaside Stampin' Ink - Beach Stories Stamp set and Cloud stamp
Happy Birthday Peel-off Sticker

To make the card, I stamped the lighthouse image with Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with the Copic Markers.  The image was then cut with the die.  On a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white card stock, the water was stamped with the water stamp from Beach Stories and a combination of Danube Blue, Teal Zeal and Mermaid inks.  The sky was stamped with the Cloud stamp and Summer Sky ink.  The die cut image was then added.  The birds were stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and the birds from By the Sea 2.  The Happy Birthday sticker was added to complete the card.

Glitter Lace Technique

Here is a card I made using glitter and lace.  I saw this technique on an Elizabeth Craft Designs YouTube video.   I love the look of the final card!

The card is 4.25 x 5.5 and I used the following to make the card:

  • Glitter Ritz Champagne and Warn Highlight
  • Sookwang Double sided tape
  • CTMH Joyful Birthday Occasions Stamp Set
  • Versmark
  • Lace
  • Stampendous Detailed Gold Embossing Powder
  • Spellbinders Standard Circles Dies
To make the card, I covered a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of white card stock with the double sided tape.  After peeling off the release sheet, lace was added on top and carefully pressed down onto the tape.  The Champagne glitter was added and burnished in.  The lace removed and the Warm Highlight glitter added and burnished in.  I then cut a circle from the glittered card stock, and added the glittered card stock to the front of a top fold card base.  The sentiment was stamped inside the circle with Versamark and the Gold Embossing powder added and heat set to complete the card.
