A Beautifully Happy Birthday

Don’t you love this floral stamp? I needed some cards for my upcoming birthdays, and I absolutely love this set. (This set is free, by the way, with a qualifying purchase of $120). The flowers are 2-step, meaning you stamp the outline with one stamp, then stamp the coloured parts with the fill-in stamps. This set is “Distinctive” meaning it can look like you’ve used two different colours, but it is just the way the stamp is formed. It’s a very simple card. The base is Evening Evergreen (8-1/2 x 5-1/2, scored at 4-1/4). The Designer Series Paper is Texture chic from the Annual Catalogue – 4 x 5-1/4″.

I stamped the floral design on Basic White using Early Espresso ink, Pale Papaya for the main flowers, Evening evergreen for the leaves, and Cajun Craze for the top flower element, as well as the dots around the flower. I also used Pale Papaya on a blending brush to give some highlight around the flower stem. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso, as is the little bee.

Just to switch it up a little, I used the Layering Diorama Dies to cut out the basic white and mounted it on dimensionals.

I hope you like this card enough to make one and wish someone a happy birthday. PS – happy birthday to all you January babies out there!!

Paper crafting gives me balance in a very hectic life, as a wife, mother and quilt shop owner. Sharing my love of creating is easy, as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and as a quilter. It doesn't matter which medium you choose, I think creativity keeps you young.
