Stamp Happy Birthday from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I cut the stamp in half so the words would be side by side. Punch the ends with Banner Triple Punch.
Inside: Very Vanilla - 5 1/4" x 4" (stamp before you adhere it to the card)
Below are step by step instructions for stamping the artwork. The only reason you even need these is to know how to get the ink lighter than it would be at full strength. Most stamps I stamped off once - which means, I inked up the stamp, then stamped it off on a scrap of paper before stamping it onto the cardstock.
* Remember * When stamping with Photopolymer stamps you want to use the Stampin' Pierce Mat for a nice image. Since the Photopolymer stamps don't have any foam like the red rubber stamps, you need the foam pad to allow them to have a little give.
Step One - the Sun (or moon) is Crushed Curry - full strength - I forgot to add it to the card below.
This one I stamped off twice because I wanted it to be very light. You can see the scrap paper I used so you'll notice how dark the first two are with Tranquil Tide.
I think I need to add ink to my Tranquil Tide. It went through a lot of stamping Saturday.
