Funky Fossil "Comic Book" Birthday Card

I've mentioned it a few times, that I struggle making cards for males.  I saw the Funky Fossil Designs "Comic Book stamp and die set" and fell in love with it.  Alas, it was sold out, but Sarah must have found more stock, as the next time I looked it was on her site, so I ordered one along with three stencils which I felt would work well with the stamp set.

This afternoon I got to play with the stamps and dies, they are everything I was hoping for.  They're going to make male cards so much easier for me now.

I used some bright yellow paper, stamping the comic style explosion shape in the new Versafine Clair red colour called "Strawberry".  I then stamped the shape again in white card, fussy cutting the shape and then sticking the white over the yellow central area.

I then mounted the yellow paper on to a piece of dark blue card and then on to a white card blank.

Next, using Versafine Clair "Blue Belle" ink, I stamped the word "Boom" on white card and used the matching die to cut it to shape,  I added white foam pads to the underside of the word so that it has a 3D look to it.  Finally, using the same ink, I added the "Happy Birthday" greeting, which is also part of the "Comic Book Words" stamp set.


  1. Booming amazing x what a great card full of brilliance and fun xx

  2. This comic book type image stamped in red on the yellow really stands out Sam and the black and white die cut sentiment across the added white in the background works beautifully, and finished with the black stamped birthday sentiment at the bottom..perfect. x
