Hip Hip Hooray
One of the Sweet Spots released this month from Die-Versions is "Hip Hip Hooray". I was in a restaurant in Franklin, TN and the first thing you see when you walk in is a sign that reads "Hip Hip Hooray - the Gang's All Here". As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to do with this new Sweet Spot.
This easel card used a lot of stamps (six in total) and quite a bit of masking, but it was fun to create. I started off by cutting the sweet spot in fabric (just to see if it would work. I didn't have any problems but you might if there were more intricate details.) Then I scribbled a Spica glitter pen on the letters for a bit of bling. Next I started stamping and masking to create my scene. All of the images were stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo and colored with Koh-I-Nor woodless pencils for a more vintage feel.
The first stamp with the three ladies sitting in front and the man in the back to the right are by River City Rubber Works. The man and woman image in the back on the left is from I Brake for Stamps and the trees/shrubs in the very back are by Beeswax Stamps. The large watermarked sentiment is an older background stamp by Hero Arts and the "Happy Birthday you old bird" is retired stamp from Prickley Pear. The rest of the sentiment was die cut from the Die-Versions Mister Micro font.
