Birthday Bots

Last summer, when the new catalog came out, I fell in love with the Lots of Bots stamp set. Since my husband used to work on robots, I was super excited when I saw the stamp set. I tend to make a lot of "girly" cards, and the Lots of Bots allowed me to make not only masculine cards, but nerdy masculine cards! I made the Lots of Bots cards before I got my act together on the blog, so a lot of these cards haven't made it on the blog; however, recently I came across these cards and thought it would be a good time to share. So here's the Lots of Bots birthday card that I made sometime in the summer for the monthly Ladybug Ink swap.

Lots of Bots birthday card details:
  • Color scheme: Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Gray
  • Use the 1-1/4" Square punch (104400) to punch out squares in Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla cardstock.
  • Position the squares in three rows with four squares to a row, alternating the colors.
  • Stamp the birthday robot from the Lots of Bots stamp set (115293) in Basic Black on Very Vanilla. Layer this piece on on Bermuda Bay, and then layer that piece on Basic Gray.
  • Use the Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write marker (set of 6 In-Colors, 116329) to color the robot.
  • Add three silver brads (104336) in the lower left-hand square. A couple of tips on doing this. 1) Place the brads before you adhere this square to the card. 2) Use the paper-piercing template you get in the Mat Pack (105826) to evenly space the brads and keep them straight. I learned about the awesome piercing template after I made this card and am highly dependent on that template now.
Remember that it's still Sale-a-Bration and you still have some time to get some awesome free stuff for every $50 that you spend. Head on over to my website to take advantage of this great deal that will end on March 31.

Happy Stampin'
