Happy Little Stamping Birthday card



Hello everyone and welcome to the second Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge where the theme is Anything Goes. We had some amazing entries into our last challenge so why not come along with  us on this journey into mixed media .







Winner receives one stamp set from HLS


I came up with this card




I received my first Gelli Plate recently and decided to dip my toe in the water with it by using acrylic paint and a chevron stencil to pull a simple background print.  Although it wasn't perfect, I was quite pleased with the result and can imagine that this gelli plate malarkey could get quite addictive!

Once the paint was dry I die cut a stitched circle from it and used a star stencil to ink a random pattern of stars over the left hand side. I then used the Happy Little Stampers Mix Mash stamp set for the sentiment and to stamp the chevrons which I then fussy cut.



I used foam tape to give some dimension and arranged the chevrons on the right side of the circle and added a couple of little silver metal flowers. To assemble the card, I die cut the same circle from some blue card and glued it to a notecard before inlaying the circle panel. I then added some WOS to the stars and called it done!

I hope you will pop over to the Happy Little Stampers blog to see some great inspiration from the Design Team, and join in with us this month.


Thanks for stopping by.

  6. What a lovely & soft gelli background. Love that you've added all the chevrons, geometric shapes with the challenge stars. Also love that you have done this in such pretty blue shades too. Gellis are fun, and I need to get mine out & do something with it! (it's nearly as much fun as sprays!) TFS & Hugs
