Distress Oxide Glaze Technique: Happy Birthday

I have been showing some samples of how to use your Distress Oxide glazed panels, and I especially love using them with die cuts. If you haven't seen the tutorial on how to do this technique, you can see it here. All of the posts from the tutorial to here have been cards using this technique.

Worth noting is that although you can make beautiful cards using die cuts ON these panels, you can also die cut these panels to make gorgeous cards.

I absolutely love this die from Memory Box (99574 Graceful Cattails) and this vertical happy Birthday stamp from Magenta (07.430.I is the perfect stamp to use with it.

Since the inside of the sun in this die cuts out separately, you can cut it out of a different color, which I love. I used two different pieces of Distress Oxide glazed panels that I had previously made.

I cut a white panel from the Core'dinations 80# White Canvas cardstock using the MFT-463 Die-Namics Blueprints 13 die set. The Graceful Cattails die cut was adhered to the left side of this panel.

I stamped the Magenta Happy Birthday stamp on the right side, using Versafine Clair Warm Breeze ink. The white panel was matted with Stardream Flame cardstock and the entire piece was adhered to a base card of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.
