Birthday Bot

We have so many birthdays this month and next and I have needed cards for boys and men as most of the recipients are uncles, grandpas, cousins and sons! One of my go-to sets for guys is this cool little collection of stamps called “Lots of Bots”. I bought this set in the clear mount option from the last Mini Catalogue and I’m really glad that it found it’s way into our new Idea Book and Catalogue as I have used it heaps!
I actually created about 10 of these cards in one go in about an hour which isn’t bad at all  (why make one when you can make 10 right?) and I used my Circles Die with the Big Shot machine to cut out the circles in various sizes and colours – super quick! This die is great when you want to cut lots of circles out of several layers at time and because they are different sizes you can layer them together easily if you want to.
I stamped a background with the nuts and bolts stamp in Basic Black ink then stamped by Bot on one of the larger Whisper White circles before colouring him in with my Stampin’ Write  markers. I used Basic Grey, Tempting Turquiose and my new Poppy Parade Marker (I’m loving this colour!). Notice how I have left some bits white and my colouring really isn’t all that neat…..these line art stamps do all the tricky artwork for you so that all you have to do is add a bit of colour – TOO EASY!
Next I stamped the 000111  (my hubby tells me that’s computer language!) stamp in basic black on one of the smaller circles several times without re-inking so that the colour gradually faded the more I stamped. This is called stamping off or 2nd, 3rd,4th generation stamping and you’ll get several shades of the same colour from your inkpads using this technique.
Finally I ran the Basic Grey circle through the Big Shot with my Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to add a bit of texture before arranging the circles onto my card and adhereing them with Snail Adhesive.
The “Happy Birthday Human”  greeting is stamped inside the card.
If you have any questions or comment about this or any other card please ask or leave a comment and let me know what you think of my card 🙂
This time next week I will be on Hamilton Island with my hubby on an all expenses paid trip for two courtesy of Stampin’ Up! We received our travel documents recently and I’ve already started to pack the suitcases!!


I am continually grateful for the opportunities being a demonstrator has given me, not least of which is to be able to wake up everyday and do something that I love!
