Quick & Easy Coloring with Sponge Daubers and the Friendly Hello Stamp Set & Designer Series Paper

Hello my crafting friends,

Today I am excited to share that I was recently invited to the Stampin’ Fancy Friday Design Team. This group of amazing designers create fun challenges each month. We each then design a project around the challenge. Everyone is invited to participate in the challenge each month. Share your project on IG or FB then tag #stampinfancyfriday when you post it. They will share in their stories to inspire others as well!

The first challenge of 2022! It's all about BIRTHDAYS! 🎂 Make sure to check out all 24 projects from the team all during January to inspire you because everyone deserves a card on their birthday! 


This is the card I made. I used the new Sale-a-bration Friendly Hello Stamp Set & Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper. I love that they come bundled together and you can get them for FREE with a $100 order from now until Feb 28, 2022. 

This stamp set is great, it has both lined and solid stamps making it easy to use with or without coloring. Here I used sponge daubers to add color quickly to the images. Then with a little layering this card came together so quickly.

I hope you are inspired by this card and create your own Birthday project for the challenge this month.

1- Begin by stamping the double flower image in Memento Black Ink in the bottom left area of the 2 ¾” x 3 ¾” Shimmery White piece. Then add four solid leaves in Granny Apple Green around the flowers. Add the splatter image in Sahara Sand ink in the top left area and bottom right.

2- With a Sponge Dauber and Petal Pink ink pad add color inside the flowers.

3- Stamp the bird & flower image on the other piece of Shimmery White Cardstock in Memento Black ink. Add color with Sponge Daubers, Fresh Freesia to the flowers, Pool Party & Granny Apple Green to the bird. Fussy Cut out.

4- Color in some of the branch with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

Add highlights to the birds’ tail with a Chalk Marker.

5- Add the Shimmery White Petal Pink flower piece to the DSP at an angle. Add this to the center of the cardbase. You will want the Shimmery White piece to be straight on the card.

6- Add the bird with dimensionals over the Petal Pink flowers. Trim off the tail of the bird at the branch.

7- On the Black ½” strip stamp your greeting in VersaMark ink, add white embossing powder and heat. Then add to the card over the bird with dimensionals. Cover up the branch. Tuck the tail under the greeting with a dimensional. Make sure to place it so the tail of the bird is inline with the body.

8- Add three Iridescent Rhinestones.

All Done!
