Birthday Blooms with Rose Wonder

Hi Friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!  I had a chance to play around in my stamping studio this weekend and will need to wait to share some of the cards later this week (new releases, etc.),  but wanted to create a quick card using the Simon SaysWednesday “Add Some Shimmer” Challenge along with the Just Add Ink JAI317 "Colour Combo" Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers’ SC25 Sketch Challenge (flipped the sketch and this challenge was in 2005...still a great reference for inspiration).   

Not sure why, but I struggle pairing yellows and pinks together but I think the darker Rose Red with the Flirty Flamingo seems to work well with Crushed Curry- don't you?

If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find time to do so- wonderful examples from all!

To create this card:

Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Crushed Curry Classic Ink with the My Favorite Things® (MFT) On the Diagonal Stencil to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.

Trim the panel, stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder using ink from the Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad™,  add a few flourishes from Timeless Textures (colored with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write marker before spritzing and stamping onto the panel), mount onto a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Rose Red card front and adhere the entire panel to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

Stamp the flower from Birthday Blooms using Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad™ onto Whisper White cardstock, heat set with the Heat Tool and color with Stampin’ Write Markers- Pear Pizzazz for the leaves, Flirty Flamingo and Rose Red for the petals and Crushed Curry for the stamens (use an AquaPainter™ to soften the colors).

Fussy-cut the image and mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add a few sequins to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Birthday Blooms, Timeless Textures, Rose Wonder (all Stampin’ Up!)

Ink/Mediums: Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad™, Crushed Curry; Stampin’ Write Markers- Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Rose Red

Paper: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Flirty Flamingo, Rose Red

Accessories: AquaPainter™, MFT On the Diagonal Stencil, Sequins (from my stash)

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and have a great week!

I love the addition of stamped flourishes to the stencilled background, Julie - and that gorgeous, rich-coloured, bloom is outstanding! Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.
