Rainbow Birthday Artist Trading Cards | Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Greetings Stamp set

Updated: Sep 14, 2020

Thank you so much for joining me for these super colourful Rainbow Birthday Artist Trading Cards, Let's jump right in.

To start I always like to have my cardstock cut down to the right size so that I know what I am working with, as far as I know, the only rule to creating an Artist Trading card is that they need to be 2.5 by 3.5 inches, which is what I cut my Canson Watercolour paper down to.

Then with a small acrylic block and the solid balloon stamp from Simon Says Stamp's Big Birthday Greetings stamp set, I proceeded to cover the whole ATC in balloon's. For my Rainbow selection of inks, I used Distress Oxide Inks in the colours Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin. Distress Oxide inks overlap beautifully so I had no worries about my colours creating mud on my card.

Once my whole ATC was covered in Balloons I then used a small Happy Birthday sentiment from the same stamp set and some VersaFine Clair Nocture ink to stamp in on the right-hand bottom corner of my ATC. As a finishing touch, I also added some Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Mini Star Confetti for a little sparkle, Sadly you can't really see them in the picture but in person, they are super cute!!

Thank you so much for stopping by for this quick and colourful ATC, If you would like to see how I made these please watch the video below!! There is also a full supplies list below the video. I cannot wait to see you again next time!
