Technique Tuesday: Seals Challenge

No, not the "ark ark" kind. But the stamping kind. As you probably know by now, Technique Tuesday debuted a new line of stamps called Signed, Sealed, and Delivered. Today, the Stamping Techs are whipping up some new projects using those seals.

I've already made a Mother's Day card and layout, and a Father's Day card using some of the seals. So for today, I created a quick and easy birthday card using the Happy Birthday seal.

stamps: Technique Tuesday Happy Birthday Seal / patterned papers: October Afternoon 9 to 5 / ribbon: Technique Tuesday Narrow White Twill / Inks: Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink in Butter Bar, Clearsnap Colorbox Classic Pigment Cat's Eye / punches: McGill

I stamped the seal in two colors, punched out the blue one with a 2" scalloped punch, and the candles with a 3/4" circle punch. Popped them up with pop up dots. Then I stamped a piece of Technique Tuesday Narrow White Twill with the little star that comes in the seal set. Wrapped the twill around the stripe-y paper, and then adhered that to the woodgrain paper. Yes, I have a thing for woodgrain paper. I'm blaming it on Martha Stewart. And this October Afternoon paper is pretty dang awesome.

This is such a super simple card that can be adapted to just about any occasion. Which makes those seals such great stamps to have around. Plus, they are really affordable!

Don't forget to go by Technique Tuesday's blog to see the awesome projects by the other Stamping Techs!
