Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Birthday Blooms for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop March 31st


 Welcome once again to our weekly hop. My share for today is from Birthday Blooms from Stampin’ Up! We have a sketch challenge this week.

Happy Stampers Blog Hop Birthday Blooms

I have had this set, Birthday Blooms, for a while, but had not used it.  Wow, it is another favorite from Stampin’ Up!  And, I especially love how it looks with the Birthday Bouquet DSP.

Birthday Blooms

My card was really quick and easy to put together.  I just stamped the Watermelon Wonder card base with the large flower image from Birthday Blooms in Watermelon Wonder ink, then stamped the dots randomly around the flower (also in Watermelon Wonder).  I cut a panel of Birthday Bouquet DSP that I attached to a panel of Mossy Meadow with multipurpose liquid glue, then adhered it to the card base with more glue.

I stamped the banner from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink and used the coordinating die from the Rose Garden Thinlets Dies to cut it out.  The sentiment, from Birthday Blooms, was then stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink.

A small piece of a Tea Lace Doily was attached to the banner, then I added dimensionals and popped it onto the card front.  Some  Pearl Basic Jewels were then added for a final touch for the front.

I stamped the same flower image from Birthday Blooms on the inside using Watermelon Wonder ink on the Whisper White panel, then stamped the image from Rose Wonder in Mossy Meadow.  Along the bottom is a strip of Watermelon Wonder washi tape.  I framed the artwork piece with a panel of Mossy Meadow from the Designer Series Paper Stacks.

Card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
