Stampin Up “Birthday Blooms” Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Well December is behind us and Spring is coming soon.  I decided to get out some new items from the Spring Occasions catalog.  I hope you have had a chance to get your copy.  If you need one just let me know and I would be happy to send you one.  This catalog is amazing  so I wanted to use more items to showcase the beautiful products for you.   I used the “Birthday Blooms” stamp set.  If you love coloring, then you will love this set.

I used the Lots of Labels Framelits for my card today.  I love all the different sizes that we can use to make lots of layers.

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms Card:

Here is the card recipe:

Card Base:  Watermelon Wonder 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Whisper White 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 Embossed with the Softly Falling EF

Large Framelit: Mossy Meadow using the largest of the Lots of Labels Framelits

Smaller Framelit: Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper using the second to the largest framelit

I embossed the white mat then attached both of the mats cut from the Lots of Labels framelits all with my snail.  Before adhering all of this the card base I added the 1 inch watermelon wonder stitched ribbon to the card with glue dots.

The Details:

The Flower:

The flower was inked using the Birthday Blooms stamp set in Staz on black ink onto some watercolor paper.

I used my blender pens and colored in the flower solid using Blushing Bride ink and then used Watermelon Wonder ink and my blender pen to add the shading.

The Leaves:

The leaves were colored using my blender pens also, starting off with Old Olive ink and then shading with Mossy Meadow for depth.

The Center of the Flower:

Again using my blender pen I colored in the center with Daffodil Delight and shaded with Crushed Curry.

Finishing Touches:

After all the coloring was done I took my snips and fussy cut the entire flower out. It took some time but was very relaxing.  After it was cut I put dimentionals on the back and adhered it to the front of the card.  I tucked a vellum sentiment on top of the ribbon and inked that with Mossy Meadow. The finishing touch was that bow, made from the Watermelon Wonder 1 inch ribbon, WOW is is amazing to work with.

I always have to add some sparkle and that was accomplished with some gold sequins and tiny pearls.  The finishing touch was adding some gold dazzling details to the center of the flower.
