Amazing Silhouettes Masculine Birthday Card

This Amazing Silhouettes masculine birthday card is made with Stampin’ Blends and Isopropyl Alcohol. The technique is normally used with Vellum paper, but today I am going to show you how to do it with Watercolor paper.

Amazing Silhouettes Masculine Birthday Card

I always seem to be in need of masculine cards. I also enjoy playing with Stampin’ Blends and Alcohol. So, when I put the two together, this easy masculine card was born.

The stamp set, Amazing Silhouettes, is from the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. It is on page 40.

There are no sentiments in this stamp set, so the one used is from Artistically Inked.

To make the card

  • Begin with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock, score and fold at 4 1/4″ to form your card base.
  • Adhere a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock to the card base using Stampin’ SEAL.
  • Lay a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Watercolor Paper on to a paper towel and get your large Acrylic Block (F) out.
  • Add some Isopropyl Alcohol (91%) to a spray bottle or Stampin’ Spritzer.
  • Color the Acrylic Block, in random splotches, with Cajun Craze light, Crumb Cake dark, and Misty Moonlight light Stampin’ Blends.

  • Spritz some alcohol on to the Acrylic Block (the wetter the better). Quickly stamp your image on to it and stamp your image in the middle of the Watercolor Paper. 
  • Wipe the Acrylic Block off with a paper towel and repeat the process to add two more trees to the watercolor paper.

  • Once the ink is dry, mar the edges of the Watercolor Paper with your Bone Folder. Then, adhere to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • Stamp your sentiment on a 5/8″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using Misty Moonlight ink.
  • Adhere a 4″ piece (with the ends cut at a diagonal) of Denim ribbon to the bottom of the sentiment using Stampin’ SEAL. Attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Attach three Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots as shown.

  1. Love your card and the technique. Thank you for sharing. I’m loving this stamps set and Look forward to trying this design. ❤️

    • Thank you Patricia! Have fun making the card. Just remember to wash your stamps well afterwards so that the alcohol doesn’t sit on the stamps. 🙂

  2. Melissa, this is a fabulous card – another beautiful creation. You have such an eye for design and great techniques. I’m going to try your technique! Thanks for always inspiring me.

  3. Melissa, we have been cautioned against using the alcohol markers on stamps. I’m apprehensive about their being damaged or at least permanently stained. I love your card, but I believe I can get the same effect by using stampin’ write markers and spritzing with water.

    • Thank you Judi. I consulted with DS prior to making the card and there should be no problems using the Blends on red rubber, especially since we should be cleaning our stamps after each use anyway. You are right about doing the same technique with the Stampin’ Write markers, but the blends offer different shades of the colors that you cannot get with them. I hope this clears it up a little. Glad you like my card. 🙂
