StampinByHannah Half Full Birthday Card
I realised on Sunday morning that I hadn’t made a Birthday card for my mum (her birthday was yesterday!). Does this happen to other people? I make mountains of cards, but actually remembering to make a card for a loved one seems to fall off my radar! But it’s OK, because I realised also that I had a new stamp set in my collection! Half Full is a fabulous wine-theme’d stamp set, designed by Million Dollar seller Linda Bauwin, and gifted to me by my team leader at team training last weekend.
The Half Full stamp set can be found in the Autumn Winter catalogue, and comes with a bunch of fun Christmas-y sentiments, but nothing for birthday. So, I grabbed by favourite Happy Birthday stamp from the Butterfly Basics stamp set, and stamped it in Basic Black into Crushed Curry card stock.
My mum LOVES Red Wine… and so I pulled out Cherry Cobbler ink for the wine, and set about watercolouring! I haven’t watercoloured in a while (I know, it’s shocking!)… but this stamp set is just perfect for watercolour, or Stampin’ Blends. I love the watercolour effect here, created using a almost dry Aqua-Painter and several layers of ink…. and I might have had some kitchen roll to blot some of the excess ink off too.
The card is finished with a bow in Garden Green Stitched Satin Ribbon, and a strip of Champagne Foil!
