SUO176 Floral Birthday

Hi Friends!   

It’s time for the #176 “Out in the Garden” Challenge at SU! Only Challenges! I used to dream of having beautiful floral gardens but as time progressed and my work hours averaged 60+ a week, those dreams never became a reality-lol!

So when Robin suggested the theme “Out in the Garden” floral images came immediately to my mind, although it could be anything in the garden- bees, butteflies, flowers, garden benches, etc. as long as you only use only Stampin’ Up! products.

I decided to incorporate the CAS(E) This Sketch #224 Challenge (I completely flipped the sketch) along with the TGIF Challenges! #114 Color Challenge and the Paper Players PP347 "Birthday" Challenge into the design.

If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge galleries yet,  I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Ink the floral image from You’ve Got This with Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  Heat set with the Heat Tool and use the AquaPainter™ to watercolor the image using Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay Classic Ink.  Add additional color with the Stampin’ Write Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Nay Markers, blending the color as needed.  Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color the center of the flower, fussy-cut the image and use the White Gel Pen to add highlights to the center.

2). Ink the grid stamp from You’ve Got This using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink, apply a sticky note to “mask” off part of the image and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp the splatter image from Awesomely Artistic using Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink and use the AquaPainter™ with diluted Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink.

3). Ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink and stamp onto the background panel.

4). Trim the panel, mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Bermuda Bay card front.

 5). Trim the stem and leaves from the floral image, add the leaves behind the flower and mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

6). Use the Clear Wink of Stella® Glitter Pen to add shimmer to the petals and add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.

What a fun birthday card, Julie! It's bold and bright, perfect for a birthday! I don't use that stamp set nearly enough and I love the crosshatch background. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week! Crystal, DT
