I am sharing a Birthday card today using the gorgeous Birthday Blooms stamp set. The whole Birthday Blooms product suite was an instant favourite the moment I set my eyes on it! I adore the patterned paper, the stamps and the accessories too!
For this weeks Global Design Project Challenge we have been inspired by a card from one of my card making heroes Connie Collins. I turned to the Birthday Blooms as I had not had a chance to have a really good play with it but had seen so many lovely samples so this is my card….
I used watercolour paper and coloured the leaves in Mint Macaroon and the flower with Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo using an aqua painter. I embossed the flower image with white embossing powder to contain the ink within the lines. I used a technique which you may have seen me use before on the Sky’s the Limit card where I die cut the circle and partially hand cut the overlapping parts so that they were not cut by the die cut. I will do a video someday soon, I am just always chasing my tail and there are never enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do.
The sentiment lacked pizzazz so I stamped part of it on to black card stock and embossed it in white and cut around it. The last flourish were some rhinestones colour with a black sharpie marker and a wave of new wink of stella pen to add some sparkle to my flower.
We would love you to join us this week and make something using Connie’s card for inspiration –
