Happy Birthday, Simon Hurley! New Release from Ranger Ink

Friday, June 7, 2024

Simon Hurley's birthday release is here! There are adorable new rubber stamps, clear stamps and coordinating dies from this release and I have a few of them to share on today's card. I was gifted the new products from Ranger Ink and wanted to combine them on a card to celebrate. I started with stamping my images with an archival ink so I could do some watercoloring with my MISTI.

The gifts and balloon images have coordinating solid stamps that you can use to fill in the outline stamps. I used two different ink pad colors for each solid image to give it more of a two-tone or shaded look. I used watered down ink with a paint brush to color in my geese - I just love the one with the tied party hat! When the images were dry, I die cut them out along with a "happy birthday" sentiment.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of blue cardstock to 4x5.25" and used my MISTI and a low tack mat from Scrapbook.com to keep the paper in place. I used the Fading Lines Cling Mount Rubber Stamps for the background and inked it up with two shades of blue ink. I used a water sprayer to mist the stamp and then stamped the lines onto the blue paper. I set it aside to dry while I cleaned up my desk.

To assemble the card, I adhered my background to an A2 card base, glued the gifts with liquid adhesive and popped up the rest of my images and sentiment with foam adhesive. This was a relatively quick card, but I think the geese just make the card and anyone would be excited to receive it! Let me know what you think of the new release in the comments.
