“You’re One of a Kind” Birthday Card using Simon Says Stamp Fingerprint Doodles Stamp

Hello and welcome back, crafty friends! Today I have a sweet birthday card using (what I think) are the cutest stamps ever by Simon Says Stamp! Just look at those sweet animals using the Fingerprint Doodles Stamp! Aren’t they just adorable? I bought this stamp hoping that in a year or two, my daughter will be able to make some cards using her own fingerprint…I can’t wait!! While I haven’t classified this as a “Quick Make” card, I made it fairly fast, and if I just stamped the sentiment instead of heat embossing, that would have made it even quicker! Let’s get started on today’s card.

I am finally working my way through Rainbow Maker, the new class over at Online Card Classes, so I knew I wanted to use rainbow inks. After I chose my favorite inks, I picked which animals I wanted to use and I matched them up to a color. I found it easiest to lay out the little critter stamps out as I wanted them spaced, pick up the entire lot with a large acrylic block (or your Misti!), and stamp the whole lot onto the panel. Leaving room for the sentiment, of course! I practiced on a piece of scratch paper before I did the animals on my card panel.

After I had my animal outlines stamped, I used a few of the provided fingerprint stamps that come in the set and gave all the animals their basic color. After my ink dried, I went in with colored pencils and added just a hint of shading, cheeks, and color to their arms and legs. And, you can’t see it at all in these photos, but I also added Wink of Stella to that cootie patootie bunny!

For the sentiment, I used Versafine Onxy Black ink and clear embossing powder to stamp the “happy birthday” sentiment (from Hero Arts Irreverant Birthday Messages Stamp) and “you’re” from (Avery Elle Welcome Home Stamp). I used Lawn Fawn Lobster ink to stamp ‘one of a kind’ so it would emphasise those words.

I found a perfect striped patterned paper from my stash to put behind my panel. I trimmed the patterned paper to about 4″ x 5.5″ so the card base would still be showing along the top and bottom. Then I trimmed my stamped panel down about .25″ around the whole panel and used a bright yellow craft foam and Be Creative double sided tape to secure it to the card base. I just love how the yellow is so fun and an unexpected burst of color behind the front panel.

And, that my friends, is the card done! See? I told you it was easy-peasy!

I’m entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Stamp It.

Thanks for stopping by today and…

See Y’all next time!!
