Happy Birthday four ways

January 26, 2021

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest which used the Painted Poppies stamp set and thought I would make something using the new Forever & Always stamp set. I began by cutting a frame from Basic Black card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I attached the frame to Whisper White card before attaching a piece of the True Love Designer Series Paper to the left hand side. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Basic Black card. I cut a smaller rectangle from Basic White card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and and stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The Basic White rectangle is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped one large and two small flowers from the Forever & Always stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the flowers using the Flirty Flamingo and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I stamped two large and two small leaves from the Forever & Always stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I cut out the flowers and the leaves using the co-ordinating Always Dies.

I attached the flowers and the leaves to the card front, partially covering the Basic White rectangle, using dimensionals where necessary. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the small flower from the Forever & Always stamp set beside the greeting using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The flower is coloured using the Flirty Flamingo and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I thought this card was really pretty and decided to re-create it using different colours and placing the pieces in different orientations. The second card is in the same landscape orientation but with the Designer Series Paper on the right hand side.

The flowers are coloured using Magenta Madness and Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. The leaves are coloured using the Dark Just Jade Stampin’ Blend. The third card is in the portrait orientation with the Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the Whisper White panel. The flowers are coloured using Rich Razzleberry and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. The leaves are coloured using the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. The last card is also in the portrait orientation and has the Designer Series Paper at the top of the Whisper White panel. The flowers are coloured using the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends and the leaves using the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. Don’t you think they look pretty?

Bye for now,

Kris
