Do you think Stampin’ Up! Has nailed the children’s faces in the By My Side stamp set?
I think the artist of this set has done really well. Simple and allowing room for creativity of the stamper! Speaking of which you’ll find 10+ simple and creative card ideas using the Tahitian Tide in-color to inspire your next crafting session in the Blog Hop below!
I am joining in with the Art With Heart Team’s Colour Creations Blog Hop with this Tahitian Tide boy birthday card.
What you need
The Tahitian Tide colour from Stampin’ Ups!® 2022-2024 in-colour family is our focus and I have gone with a Tahitian Tide base and layer. The layer has been decorated with die cut stars cut from the 2022 – 2024 In-Colour patterned paper. A Tahitian Tide frame has been mounted on top of the star layer. Inside the frame is a stamped boy coloured with Stampin’ Blends, holding a bunch of balloons. The card is finished with a Basic White tag and twine, stamped in Tahitian Tide.
How gorgeous are those stitched stars from the Give It A Whirl dies?
Boy By My Side Stamp Set Birthday Card Recipe
It really is an easy card to make. Follow the instructions below.
- Begin with a Tahitian Tide standard card base.
- Cut a 9.5 cm x 13.8 cm Tahitian Tide card stock layer.
- Using the Scallop Contours dies, cut the small frame from Tahitian Tide.
- Cut a rectangle from Basic White card stock to fit inside the frame. Adhere to the frame.
- Adhere adhesive sheets to the back of some Tahitian Tide patterned paper and run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with the stars from the Give It A Whirl set.
- Cut a label from Basic White. I used the label die from the Meadow dies.
- Stamp the boy in Basic Grey onto Basic White card stock.
- Colour the boy using Stampin’ Blends. I haven’t gone very heavy with the Stampin’ Blends as Basic Grey is not colour fast against the alcohol markers.
- Fussy cut the boy image.
- Stamp the balloon images from the Days To Remember stamp set in Tahitian Tide and fussy cut three.
- Randomly adhere the stars, covering the entire card stock layer, going over the sides as well. Trim the stars that go over the edge so everything is flush.
- Wrap white twine three times around the star covered layer.
- Assemble your card.
- Adhere the boy to the frame and one balloon with multi-purpose glue. Use a black fine line pen to draw a balloon string to the boy’s hand.
- Foam mount the remaining balloons and adhere either side of the first balloon. Draw balloon strings.
- Foam mount the frame to the star layer at an angle.
- Add twine to the label and tie a bow. Use a glue dot to adhere the label to the card.
- Inside the card adhere a 14.2 cm x 10 cm Basic White card stock layer. Adhere a strip of left over patterned paper to decorate and stamp your favourite sentiment.
