Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you doing today?  I hope everyone’s week has started off well.

For today’s card I did some sponging and some embossing for you.  I have to admit, it took me a couple do-overs before I got this card to look like I wanted and didn’t have any mess ups.  Here’s my card.

My card for today played along with 3 challenges.  First is As You See It challenge #202.  Here are their colors.

Next I played along with Inspire.Create challenge #045  Here is their theme.

I also joined in with Seize The Birthday challenge # 167.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my Stamping Sponges I first sponged the Calypso Coral Ink along the top half of the panel.  I Then sponged the Daffodil Delight Ink on the bottom half of the panel.

I stamped the grass and flower image from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the sponged panel.  I stamped the mountain image from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink across the center of the panel.  I stamped the trees from the Waterfront stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in front of the mountains.  Lastly I stamped the bike rider from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the panel and immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a thin Mossy Meadow mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the mountain image from the Waterfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the trees from the Waterfront stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom in front of the mountains.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bike rider image from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the grass and tree images from the Waterfront stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!****************************************************************************************************
