hello..... hope you are all having a great week end and if in the UK not suffering to much with the cold and snow.
I have made a birthday card in some nice bright colours, as previously mentioned I have lots of birthdays this month and next so trying to get some in hand.
I have been inspired by TWO challenges for my card, I followed the sketch at
I started off by inking Something Lacy background stamp in Melon Mambo ink, then stamped the large flower from Crazy about You with Pink Pirouette, before touching it to the something lacy stamp and then stamping onto whisper white card, I stamped 2 flowers and then punched them out with the co ordingating punch.
My card base is Melon Mambo and I cut two strips of whisper white card, and added them to my card base. I fussy cut the centre of one of my flowers and layered it to give a bit of dimension to my card. I added a little Melon Mambo enamel dot to the centre, stamped Happy Birthday from Crazy about You in Melon Mambo.
This is a fab technique and I had such fun that I decided to create another card.
for this card I used the same stamp sets and Blackberry Bliss, Pink Pirouette ink using the same technique I made a piece of background card, adding some petite petals and a little bit of grunge in Smoky Slate, I used a curved border die that I have had ages to create a gap and then stamped the Happy Birthday. I added some gems to the large flowers.
