StampinByHannah Petal Palette Birthday Card
January is a busy Birthday month in my family, with mine at the start of the month and then James’ dad and great Nannie, as well as my Aunt… I feel like all I have made recently are Birthday cards! Today’s card is one I made for my Aunt, my mum’s sister. I wanted something a bit special, but that would go nicely through the post as she lives in London, as we don’t get to see her as often as we would like to.
My crafty mojo hasn’t been it’s usual self this month either (LOTS going on around here… and it’s knocked me a bit), so I turned to the Global Design Project for inspiration. Which is where I spotted THIS fabulous card by Cathy Collins, and I knew I just HAD to CASe it! Cathy uses Stampin’ Blends to colour her card, but as I only have a limited collection of Blends at the moment I reached for my Stampin’ Write Markers instead.
I stamped several of the floral images from Petal Palette using Basic Black Archival Ink and then used Stampin’ Write Markers to add colour. I love the slightly messy look of this style of colouring, where you just leave a hint of colour and a bit of white space. Two of the images from this stamp set coordinate with dies in the coordinating Petals and More Thinlits pack (which is also available bundled with the stamp set to save you 10%!).
I am LOVING my markers at the moment and have a fabulous Stampin’ Write Marker Club too. The club allows you to collect all 38 markers over the next 4 months along with a handy case to store them in too! You can join in HERE!
The card is finished with a sentiment taken from Happy Birthday Gorgeous heat embossed in White, a great big bow of linen thread and a trio of Gold Facet gems.
