Birthday Wishes- Fall Florals for Three Challenges :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to take to take a break from creating Christmas cards and share this card created using the colors from this week’s DD74 Dynamic Duos Challenge along with the AtlanticHearts Sketch Challenge #25 and the monthly theme at the Stampin' Celebration SCIC71 Inspiration Challenge.

If you have not had the chance to visit any of these sites yet, I hope you will take the time to do so – again, great inspiration!

To create this card:

Using So Saffron Classic Ink, ink up your brayer roller and roll the ink a bit sporadically onto a piece of Vary Vanilla cardstock.

Stamp the larger flower (dotted line) image from Stippled Blossoms using Calypso Coral Classic Ink, stamping off for some of the images to create your own Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Trim this panel to 4” x 5 ¼”.

Add the Crochet Lace and Satin Ribbon (both from my stash) per the sketch.  Adhere the entire panel to the Calypso Coral card base.

Create the rolled flowers using Scallop Circle Punches (2 3/8”, 1 ¾” and 1 ¼”) from So Saffron and Calypso Coral cardstock.  Spiral cut from the outside using a wavy pattern toward the middle, roll up starting from the outside toward the center and use Mono Multi Adhesive to adhere the layers together.

Punch out a few leaves using the Bird Builder Punch from Pistachio Pudding cardstock and punch out the sentiment using the XL Oval Punch (this sentiment is from the retired set, Watercolor Trio and was printed from My Digital Studio onto Very Vanilla cardstock). 

Also punch out two additional XL Ovals from Calypso Coral cardstock for the frame behind the sentiment, attach the two Calypso Coral ovals together (spread apart a bit) to create a frame for the sentiment and adhere the sentiment to the center.

Mount the sentiment onto the background layer (per the sketch) and add the rolled flowers and leaves.  Add a few Pearls to the sentiment to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Stippled Blossoms, Watercolor Trio (MDS)

Ink: Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Printer Ink- Black

Paper/Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding

Accessories: Brayer, Punches- Scallop Circle- 2 3/8”, 1 ¾”, 1 ¼”, Bird Builder, XL Oval;  Pearls, Crochet Lace and Satin Ribbon (from my stash)


Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have a terrific Thursday!!
