Perennial Birthday

January 11, 2018

In my last post I mentioned how much I love the Watercolour Christmas Kit in the Holiday Catalogue.  Well, I purchased several of these for my end of year classes and somehow managed to order one kit too many.  So I still had a few of these cards left but I don’t need Christmas Cards, so I thought I would share how I used the new Perennial Birthday stamp set to turn the Christmas cards into birthday cards.  For each of the cards, I used the same layouts and embellishments but used the Perennial Birthday stamp set to add flowers, leaves and sentiments for the focal images.  I am so happy with the way the cards have turned out.  I coloured the images using Real Red, Emerald Envy and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers.  The images were all stamped using Black Archival ink so that they wouldn’t run when I coloured them with the Stampin’ Write Markers.   I also added sentiments from the Perennial Birthday stamp set to the inside of the cards too.  The flowers all have Basic Rhinestones added to the centres, gotta have some bling.

I think I may have to try this with another stamp set or two to finish using up the Watercolour Christmas Kit cards I have on hand.

Bye for now,

    Fantastic idea Kris. Great use of the kit turning them into other occasions other than Christmas.
