...... Good morning - just a quick post with a birthday card that I've made for four challenges:
Stamps: Uniko Studios - Pure Florals: Chrysanthemums, Wonderful Washi; Stampin' Up! - Petite Pairs
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso; Versamark
Accessories: SU/Sizzix - EF: Lacy Brocade; SU Card: Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral; SU Punches - 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle; White Lustre Card; Clear embossing powder
I've got lots of birthdays coming up over the next few months and realised that I don't have many actual birthday cards in my stash - so you might see quite a few more in the coming weeks!!
I've been itching to use this wonderful chrysanthemum stamp and the layout sketch just seemed perfect. I cut a panel of coral card onto which I layered some embossed white card. I stamped the large outline flower in versamark directly onto the pink card, heat embossed with clear powder and then cut it out. Next I stamped different washi images onto white card and cut them out. I created the birthday label by stamping the sentiment onto white card, punching it out and layering it onto a scalloped circle. For the inside I cut a mat in coral and on the white layer I stamped a few more chrysanthemums (smaller outline flower) and the verse is the partner to the front sentiment.
I'm off out this morning to a Stampin' Up! party at Karin's place. I got my parcel of new goodies yesterday with the new In-Colours and a couple of stamps and dies from the new catalogue. Oh yes, I also got a copy of the new catalogue. My wish list is HUGE!!!!! I think we're going to be playing with some of the new stuff - I'll post pictures later.
That's all for now. See you soon.
