Happy Birthday Emma

June 17, 2017

My youngest daughter, Emma, celebrates her birthday today.  She is an amazing woman and a beautiful daughter and I hope she has an wonderful day.  I fell back on an old layout which I love to create this card.  Funnily enough, all of you must love it too, because the cards I have pinned using this layout get lots of repins.  So, thank you.

I decided to break out some new product for this card – Yay.  I embossed all but the top third of Very Vanilla card using the new Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  This is a dynamic embossing folder and doesn’t need a bottom plate when running through the big shot.  I stamped the greeting from the Best Birds stamp set onto the top right hand corner of the embossed card using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I wrapped the top of the embossing with Silver 1/4″ Natural Trim and tied a knot before attaching to scored and folded Rich Razzleberry card.  I stamped the leaves from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set three times onto Shimmer card using Old Olive ink and cut them out using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I attached the leaves to the card front. I stamped the outline flower from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set onto Shimmer card and then used my Aqua Painter to spread the colour over the flower.  I cut the flowers out using the matching die.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella to colour the flower, just to add a little more sparkle.  I stamped the flower centre onto Shimmer card using Daffodil Delight ink and cut it out using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Die.  The flower centre is also coloured with the Clear Wink of Stella before attaching to the centre of the flower.  I attached to the card front over the top of the ends of the leaves.

To decorate the inside of the card I inked the stem of the flower from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set using Old Olive ink and stamped them onto the lower left hand corner of Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the flowers once more onto Shimmer card using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I used the Aqua Painter to spread the colour over the flower and cut them out using the matching framelit.  I trimmed away the stems and added them to the stamped stems.  The one on the right is flat onto the card and the one on the left is on dimensionals.

I learned the colouring technique I used on the flowers from a tutorial that I purchased from my friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Vicky Wright.  Thanks Vicky, awesome technique and I love the finished look.

Now, I don’t know about you but I believe this stamp set will be hard to stop using.  The possibilities are endless and I love the fact that it has matching dies to cut out the flowers.  And what about that embossing folder?  I love how gorgeous the finish is and how deeply etched the embossing is on the card.  I am positive that you will be wanting to place these items on your next order.

Bye for now,
