Feliz Cumpleaños with Day of the Dead from Kindred Stamps

Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Dia de Muertos begins today and the fandom characters from this movie were a perfect way to celebrate and remember those who have left this world. I used lots of bright of colors to create my stenciled background and made sure to tie those colors in to the papel picado. The patterned paper and stencil are also from Kindred Stamps - even the dies! I decided to go with a birthday sentiment so that way it can be more easily used throughout the year, but knew I just had to use this set and share today.

I started with coloring my images with my alcohol markers and fussy cut them out. I selected a colorful, floral patterned paper and die cut it with the rectangle die from the Card Basics Dies. I also cut out a circle behind the stenciled paper as to not waste any unseen paper! I used the Floral stencil and bright colors of Distress Oxide to make my stenciled background, then die cut it with the square die from the same set.

The two background die cuts were glued to the card base and I stamped and die cut the sentiment using my Sentiment Strip Dies. This banner and all of the colored images were adhered using foam adhesive. I found some black, iridescent pearls in my embellishment stash, so I added a few of those to add some shine to the card. I had also colored a sugar skull, so I glued that to the inside of the card along with the Mi Amigo sentiment.

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween this season and Feliz Dia de Muertos to those who celebrate in these holidays of remembrance! (Don't forget at the time of posting, there is still time for my giveaway on YouTube, too!)
