Blooms Banners and Blends

I am sharing this with Hunter’s permission.  She put together this pretty card that uses the Birthday Blooms flower. She used Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to color it in and it is gorgeous! She used sentiments and the leaf sprig from the Banners for You set, which I am not sure I would’ve even thought to pair with the flower, but they look like they could’ve come from the same set. She added quiet dimension by gluing the flower panel down flat, then the strip above is popped up on one layer of Dimensionals and the right side panel is popped up on two layers. I tried to capture a little of the shadow…can you tell? It’s a beautiful card with rich, vibrant colors and perfect for spring. Thank you, Hunter!

Berry Beautiful Watercolor Birthday

I really tried resisting the purchase of the Beautiful Day stamp set. I mean, how many flower stamps do I really need? And then the samples started popping up…everywhere! Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest…and you know how that goes. Yes. I bought it. Yes. I love it! This card features the image embossed in silver on Shimmery White cardstock and watercolored using ink and an Aqua Painter. So easy and so beautiful – this stamp set was definitely named appropriately!

Fresh Watercolor Birthday

I’m part of a swapping group called #imbringingbirthdaysback and I needed to make a card to send to one of the participants in Canada. Since it’s out of the country, it’s best to try and stay away from bulky cards. I decided to make a watercolor background and stamp the flower from Artistically Asian right onto it. It’s so far out of my comfort zone since I am all about dimension and layers. I wish I could merge these two cards into one – I love the bolder watercolor background, but like the look of the other one with the Copper Trim wrapped around 3 times. I stepped it up with a few random In Color Enamel Shapes and some Wink of Stella on the flower. I also decided to heat emboss the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder on the lower right corner, but it’s difficult to see in the picture.  Can you spot the new products?  I’m super excited about all the new goodies!  I also love this color combo of Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Fig, and Copper. I think I’ll be using this combo again!
