Hey everyone, it’s Julianne here showing you how to create some fun and easy anniversary cards using the Man Glitter stamp set from the April 2020 box. I’m also showing you how to make some quick and easy backgrounds with stencils and patterned paper.

I fell in love with this two images from the Man Glitter stamp set, I couldn’t wait to get both of these images stamped and colored. I started out by stamping both images onto some Xpress It Blending card stock with some Memento black ink so that I could do some copic coloring. I used to use Neenah card stock for my copic coloring but tried the Xpress It blending card stock and fell in love. This paper is actually made for alcohol inks, so if you do a lot of copic coloring like I do I highly recommend you trying it out.

To watch how these two cards came together, you can watch below or in HD on YouTube.

Once I had all my images colored in I started my backgrounds, one i did some ink blending with Heartburst stencil from Trinity Stamps with some Distress Oxide Inks, and the other two I used patterned paper from Honey Bee Stamps. But you could definitely use whatever you like or have on hand to create some awesome backgrounds to compliment these images.

Thanks so much for stopping by and spending sometime with me. Make sure to check out all of the other great inspiration from the rest of the design team as well.

Happy Crafting,

Julianne
