Happy Birthday Dog

Hi there,

today, I would like to share a new card that I created for the Karten-Kunst Blog and the post is packed with DIY ideas:

  • since ombre and multi-colored inkpads are all the rage at the moment I simply created my own
  • cut a square from Cut-n-Dry Felt and ink it up with the dye ink refills of your choice

  • I used Jenni Bowlin Dye Ink (Chewing Gum, Lavender Sachet, Soap Powder) but you can really use any dye ink that you like
  • ink up the sentiment from Karten-Kunst Buchstabenblöcke with the new inkpad and turn it if it is not big enough to comprise the whole stamp
  • the sentiment stamp has rather bold letters and sometimes it happens to me that not every last bit stamps perfectly; for this reason it would be quite useful to press the stamp on the same spot a second time; I am not good at lining up stamps over the same spot and while using a stamp positioner my paper often shifts accidentally; to solve this problem I created a little stamp press and positioner out of a DVD case and some foam rubber

I would like to take part in the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create Challenge #123 - Anything Goes w/optional Let's Celebrate!

Seize the Birthday Challenge - Anything goes

I hope you got inspired.
