Happy Wednesday! Happy August 1st!!! That means that my Birthday Month has begun and it’s time to celebrate!!! I love celebrating all month long! Stampin’ Up must have known because they have released a NEW bundle for this month only!!!
This card makes me sooooo happy. I love the greeting but more importantly those amazing flowers. I’m telling you, I’m not an artist or good at coloring but Stampin’ Blends prove me wrong. Coloring with those make you feel like a rockstar!!
I started this card with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. I went with this dimension because I wasn’t sure which way I wanted to have my card. With a smaller greeting from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set, the card could go vertical. With this amazing longer greeting, it needed to go horizontal. Also, you can save on ribbon when you go around the 4-1/4″ side of a card verses the 5-1/2″ side.
Next, I layered on a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Then for the focal point, I cut a piece of Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″). I stamped the flowers and greeting from the NEW Blended Seasons Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. I couldn’t wait to try out the new colors of Stampin’ Blends – Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green. They are amazing and beautiful. I color with the darker marker first in the centers and along the lines of the stamped image. Then I go back in with the lighter marker and color all over in a circular motion. Making sure to go over the dark color as well to really blend the colors together. I used the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends for the centers.
After coloring, I added this piece to the card front and tied some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon along the left side. I really struggled with what color of ribbon to go with – Black, Lovely Lipstick, White, Silver?? Let me know if you think I picked a good one or if you would have went with something different!
