Goodness me, January is busy for Birthdays! Luckily, this means I had plenty of opportunity to make a card for this months InspireINK blog hop and the January theme of Birthday!
This card was inspired by one in the Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue. Did you know that the catalogue is jam packed with ideas and inspiration, it’s so much more than just a list of stamps! Anyway, I needed a nice Happy Birthday card for my Aunt’s birthday last week, and this card was just special enough that it was perfect!
It uses the Bloom and Grow stamp set and coordinating dies from the Annual Catalogue, along with the Country Floral 3D Embossing folder on a base of Coastal Cabana card stock.
The floral sprays in this stamp set are so pretty, I had a tough time deciding which one to use if I’m honest. However, I picked this large one in the end and stamped it four times. Twice in Versamark to heat emboss in gold, and twice in Memento Black to colour with Stampin’ Blends. There is no fancy colouring here, just basic colouring, but I think it looks awesome!
The floral sprays were coloured with the Blackberry Bliss duo (although I think my light marker might need replacing, it looks a bit light here!), along with the light Shaded Spruce and Dark Pool Party Blends.
The sentiment is taken from the Painted Poppies stamps set that I think is now a permanent feature of my desk, I just cannot put it away!
