Stampin Up Birthday Card

It was my friends birthday this week, this is the card I created for her.

I started off making a square card base with Concord Crush, and stamped the flourish from the Creative Elements stamp set in versamark and covered with clear embossing powder and heat set.

I then cut a smaller square in Whisper white and stamped and embossed the Sweet Floral stamp again with clear powder, and the same with the greeting which is from the hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes. I daubed Wisteria Wonder ink on the remainder of the white card which gave colour to the background. I then punched a small border to go on the right hand edge of the white/purple panel with the scallop edge border punch and attached underneath.

I wrapped a length of the Organza ribbon around the panel before attaching it with dimensionals onto the front of the card. I tied a bow and attached with glue dots.

Bloghop for the New Mini Catalogue

Hi ya, and a warm welcome to my blog. If you're following the ILWS blog hop then you will have come from the lovely Beckie , and here is my project;

I felt that the flower stamp in the Marry Me set had an art deco style to it, which gave the inspiration for the card. I coloured the stamp in with markers and used to decorate the white panel using first and second generation stamping to give dimension. The black background was stamped with versamark using the tops of the flowers and embossed with clear powder and I daubed around the white panel with rich razzleberry ink to soften the edges. I used a torn strip (still find it so hard to tear such lovely new paper!!) to accent the side of the card.

Cardstock - basic black, rich razzleberry and whisper white

Ink - basic black and versamark

Markers - Rich razzleberry and always artichoke

DSP - Pocket full of posies

Stamp sets - Marry me and Create a cupcake

Accessories - Sponge daubers, snail, grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals and clear embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my project (apologies for the rubbish photo!) and the blog hop continues with the lovely Julie

Now updated with better daylight! photo, but the original one shows the embossing better arrrgh!! lol
