For my entry today a very  easy & quick card featuring  Birthday Blooms Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! I hope you like it !

Card size 4-3/4' x 6-3/4"

The winner of our previous challenge was Rochelle Block  from  USA . She have a blog filled with wonder and you can pay her a visit HERE! and make sure you check out the winners and special mentions from last week - Click here to see their beautiful and creative ideas

So to make this card I rubbed my Embossing Buddy on White Shimmery Paper and  then I stamped  3 flowers  with Versmark clear ink  avoiding overlapping the images, then I applied White Stampin' Emboss Powder  and I heat it up.

 I   applied the inks of this colour challege with Stampin' write markers and blender pen  and  I wasn't  concern  about the coloring being perfect or achieving a perfect ink blending. I kind of liked howit turns out  with its  improvised  colour imperfection..

Can you notice the difference in the colouring? for the  Flirty Flamingo flowers  I used blender pens  and for the  Dadofil Delight flower I used  Stampin Write Markers.  

I cut a banner out of  black cardstock  and  I stamped and embossed the sentiment with Versmark clear ink and White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat it up. 

To finish I add embellishments such as black thread, delicate white  doilies and Rhinestones and I also add some dots of silver ink near the flowers using a silver metallic marker.

  • Rub the Embossing Buddy on the paper before stamping with Clear Versamak  Ink and embossing powders. 
  • Allow your heat gun to warm up before using it on the embossing powders, this will help you to keep the paper flat and get a sharp embossed image.
  • For intense colours use Stampin' Write Markers + White Shimmery paper.
  • To get a watercolour  look use blender pens + ink pads  on watercolour paper or White Shimmery paper( Avoid rubbing blender pens tip in circular motion on the paper . the excesses of water will pill the paper off)

I  really hope you enjoyed the projects today.  If you would like to place an order for any of the products used in this post  or any other Stampin' Up! supplies, simply CLICK HERE  or in the pictures below to go direct to my online shop 24/7.
