I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy Birthday

Hello Peeps,

Happy Hump Day! I'm finished with holiday card making, I think. I haven't gotten them all in the mail yet, but I really think I'm done. I'm back to birthday card making and LeAnne's color challenge for the Paper Players provided some great inspiration.

Here is a pretty birthday card with big blue blooms.

I only used the two ink colors in the challenge. Using the Misti enabled me to obtain different shades of each. For the metallic part, the sentiment is heat embossed with gold EP, two layers to make it nice and smooth. I also added some gold sequins and splattered some gold ink mixed with water using a paint brush.

The stamp set is the Camellia layering set from Altenew. I used the outline stamp and Crumb Cake ink to make the background. On the middle flower, I used all three layering stamps. For the bottom and top flowers, just the outline and the accent stamps as I wanted the white highlights.

Thanks all,

Stamps: Camellia set by Altenew
Paper: SU Seaside Spray and Whisper White
Ink: SU Seaside Spray, Crumb Cake, VersaMark, gold metallic craft
Other: Altenew Camellia set dies, gold EP, heat tool, Misti, Gemini Jr, gold sequins
