The Elle’s Studio birthday celebrations continue this weekend and today, we are lucky to have Nathalie Leonelli with us to share two amazing, graphic birthday cards, that we know will have you ditching your last-minute drug store card purchases! Let’s see what she created.
I am here to continue the festivities and to wish Elle’s Studio a very happy 12th birthday! I created two cards for the occasion using mainly the Large Jane alphabet and number stamps and dies as well as the Celebrate Stamp:
Supplies: Celebrate Journaling Tags, October Labels, Puffy Heart Stickers – Summer Mix, Wood Veneer Confetti, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die, Large Jane Number Metal Die, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Polka Dot, Large Jane Number Stamp – Solid and Outline, Large Jane Number Stamps – Stripes and Polka Dot, Celebrate Stamp
You can of course adapt the age and the initials to suit your recipient! For my first card, I layered stamped and water-colored balloons from the Celebrate Stamp mixed with matching Puffy Heart Stickers.
For a fun touch, I added Large Jane Numbers, stamped in the outline and stripe, then die cut using the Large Jane Number Metal Die. I love how they look like trendy balloons, and the strings that I added make the ensemble look like a party bouquet! Different types of foam dots were used to give extra dimension.
My second card is all about the much anticipated Large Jane Alphabet and Number Metal Die now available in the shop! I loved playing with them to create a tone-on-tone background, switching a few for numbers stamped with the Large Jane Polka Dot Number Stamps so that the birthday and initials pop.
The sentiment was punched out of a tag from the Celebrate Journaling Tagss and placed on more foam dots. The Wood Veneer Confetti stars were inked to match the birthday cake and adhered to give the card one last finishing touch.
I can’t tell you how much I love the different Large Jane alphabet and number stamps and dies! Measuring about 1.5 inches, their size is just perfect for layouts, pockets, traveler’s notebook and… even cards! I can see myself using them again and again for a multitude of projects!
Happy 12th birthday Elle’s Studio! I am so glad to be able to celebrate with you!
