Katzelkraft Birthday Card with Topflight Stamps

Hello! I have another funny Katzelkraft card to share with you today. The Katzelkraft Christmas Holiday Accessories stamp set doesn't just have to be for Christmas cards! I used the gift package stamp from it along with the Jungle Animals for this birthday card:

I used an oldie but goodie technique for the background. First I stamped the hippo and package and then made little masks for them out of post it notes.

Then I sponged embossing ink (Ranger's Emboss It Dabber works great) through a stencil over the background and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Keeping the masks in place, I inked the background with blue Oxide inks. The clear embossed areas act as a resist.

I removed the masks and then used a dry craft iron to remove the embossing powder. You can do this by laying a clean sheet of newsprint over the embossed area (you need an absorbent paper) and then pressing the iron over the top until it melts. The newsprint soaks up the melted powder. If you aren't quick enough in removing the paper and it sticks, you can just heat it again to remelt the powder.

Thanks for stopping by! Below is a list of supplies I used. Be sure to check out the Topflight Stamps blog for more inspiration. There is always something fun to see there! Have a great week. =)
