Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

I love the look of my Parisian Beauty Birthday Card.  I had such a fun time putting all the parts together to form a beautiful but elegant card.

Repetition stamping can sometimes be quite tricky.  However, the Parisian Beauty sentiment easily lines up; don’t be afraid to try it.  Did you notice the beautiful embossed background?  I used the Country Floral 3D embossing folder.  One of my very favorites!

I find it helps to repeat a color three times on my cards.  In particular, the gold-edged ribbon, the gold on the Golden Honey DSP, and the gold embossed Eiffel tower.  Consequently, the color repetition helps your eye travel across the card and adds continuity to the design.

Did you notice the fleur-de-lis stamped in Blushing Bride?  It adds just that touch of color to tie everything together.  I love my simple, elegant card.  Hopefully, you are inspired to stamp your own Parisian Beauty Birthday card.

Painted Poppies Birthday Wishes Card

Painted Poppies Birthday Wishes Card

Don’t you love the bright cheerful colors on my Painted Poppies Birthday Wishes card?  As you know, I absolutely love to color, and I especially enjoy coloring with the SU Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.  The blending technique with alcohol markers is so easy and the results can be fabulous.

The new Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder adds such great detail to the front of my card.  You might also note that I’ve cut around the poppy on the inside edge of the card.  It is such a small touch, providing beautiful results.

In particular, I love the soft Old Olive color blending at the base of the poppies.  I used the Craft Ink Blending Brushes, set of 5,  from Amazon.  I have always had difficulty with sponges and sponge daubers.  The sponging was always blotchy and not as clean and smooth as I would have liked.  However, with the Craft Ink Brushes, the results are just what I’ve always wanted. All and all, I am so pleased with the look of my Painted Poppies Birthday Wishes card.  I do hope you will give it a try!!

Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Painted Poppies Happy Birthday Card

My Painted Poppies Birthday card is not only pretty, but it is also quick and easy to make.  The Painted Poppies Bundle is one of my favorite items from the new SU! January to June 2020 Mini Catalog.  If you do not have a copy of your own, send me an email [email protected], and I will send you one.

Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Have you noticed the corner stamped Poppies? I repeated the design on both the front and inside of my card. I die cut the Black Foil Sheets, and Whisper White cardstock layers with the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Both the die-cutting and repeat stamping are easy to do and bring continuity to your overall design.  You might give it a try on your next card.

Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Coloring the field of poppies with the Blender Pen is fast and straightforward.  I used the Poppy Parade ink pad and a Blender Pen.  In contrast, I made some of the flowers dark and some light. As a result, the variety adds to the overall whimsy of this quick and easy card. The Blender Pens quickly add that all-important touch of color to my card.  I love the look and ease of my Painted Poppies Birthday Card.

Beautiful Friendship — Birthday Card

Birthday Card using Beautiful Friendship stamp set from Stampin' Up! by Kathleen Wingerson

I absolutely love the new Beautiful Friendship stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and combining it with the Country Floral 3D embossing folder makes a perfect birthday card.

I have always loved hydrangeas.  My grandmother always had the most beautiful purple/blue hydrangeas in front of her home in Southern California. Every time I look at a plant, a photograph, or a stamped image I think of her and her beautiful garden.  I hope my card with the embossed and stamped flowers will bring back a lovely memory for you too.
