Adding doodles to stamped images -- Happy Birthday card by designer Deborah Nolan

Welcome back to the Hampton Art Blog!
My card today features some stamps from two of Hampton Art's latest clear sets - Celebrate Birthday (SC0682) and Oh Baby (SC0685)!

  1. Make card base for a 4” x 4” card from white cardstock.
  2. Cut 3” x 4” white cardstock panel and 4” x 4” patterned paper panel; layer and adhere to card.
  3. Stamp balloons and sentiment on white panel.
  4. Draw circles and zigzags on balloons, then color balloons and banner with pencils.
  5. Draw stitched lines and "shadows" to left of "Happy" with blue marker.
  6. Adhere enamel heart and gems.
When you have an open stamped space - like a balloon - you don't have to leave it blank. Draw some designs on it (I drew circles and zigzags) and then color the space. It's a great way to add a lot of variety to your stamps!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
