GDP034 - Teenage Boy birthday card

Teneale Williams' sketch for GDP034 really appealed to me, although it's not my usual style.

So it was in my mind while I was making this card for my Great Nephew's (yes - I have many!) 14th birthday card.

Stampin Up, #GDP034, teenage boy birthday card, Timeless Textures, Time of Year
Those sequins are hard to photograph - they're actually all the same shade of blue!

I spritzed a piece of Shimmery White cardstock with water and then stamped twice (once each way) with the woodgrain stamp in the Timeless Textures set and a mix of Crumb Cake and Soft Sky inks.  I let it run for a while before I dried it - yes, I was impatient!

I stamped the numbers in Whisper White ink onto Dapper Denim cardstock - it's one of the new In colours for 2016-2018 and just screams "teenage boy" to me!  When the ink was dry I gave the numbers a coat of clear Wink of Stella that, unfortunately, doesn't show in the photograph.  I used the matching Large Numbers framelits to cut out the numbers.

I stamped the "th" from Number of Years and the birthday banner in Dapper Denim ink.  The banner is from the new Hostess stamp set Time of Year which has some great greetings and banners for most occasions.  

I popped the numbers up on foam - a task that will be much easier with the arrival of  the new foam adhesive strips!

I glued the stamped panel to a Dapper Denim card and then stuck on some sequins from the Brights Sequins Assortment.

Thanks for your visit.
'Til next time.

  1. Sweet and charming card Stephanie. Is this the card you were talking about? Love that new banner stamp, can't wait to try the matching set that goes with it. :)

    1. Hi Juan, thanks. No, it was a different one (first draft for GDP that I haven't blogged yet!) - you'll know it when you see it!

  2. What a great card for a teenage boy! You certainly hit the right note with your colour combination. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us.
