Stack of Gifts

I think I'm obsessed with the paper piecing challenge from earlier this week (Monday's "Clean & Simple - CAS137)" challenge from Splitcoaststampers.

I was looking at my bin of leftover DP and decided I needed to make another card using this fun technique ... notice the word "needed" :)

Here's a fun and whimsical birthday card using the color challenge from last week (CC341 - Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive) - I substituted Tangerine Tango for the Pumpkin Pie.  This is a quick and easy card made with all SU! products.

Hope you like.

"Stack of Gifts"

Stamps:  Happy Moments, Bitty Birthday (SU!)
Paper:  Old Olive, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, assorted DP (retired) (SU!)
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Early Espresso (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, adhesives

I inked the stack of gifts stamp with Early Espresso and stamped onto a large piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I re-inked the stamp and stamped again onto each of the two different patterned DP.  I took a piece of Tempting Turquoise and "splattered" it with Whisper White ink using a toothbrush and water (I didn't have any patterned paper with Tempting Turquoise, so made my own!).  Once it was dry, I stamped overtop with the stack of gifts in Early Espresso ink.  I cut out all the gifts and then took time to figure out which one I liked better for the top, middle and bottom presents.  I adhered the DP to the Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to find the best position for my sentiment and then stamped it in Tangerine Tango ink.  I mounted the front panel onto a card base of Old Olive cardstock.  Done!
