Birthday Blooms

I love the Birthday Blooms stamp set from the new Stampin' Up spring/summer catalogue and I couldn't wait to make a card with it! I started off by stamping the image twice and then layering the flowers over the leaves to give it a bit of depth. All the colouring was done with a blender pen, using Blushing Bride, Delightful Dijon and Pear Pizzazz inkpads. I've added a snippet of Pool Party ribbon and backed it all on a Pool Party card.

I'm waving to Di and sending the flower to Parsnip (so he can wear it behind one ear) over at Pixie's Snippets Playground. I'm also going to have a cup of tea and a gander at all the lovely cards there!

Happy crafting! April x


  1. I got the SU catalogue the other day Pen and both my friend and I liked this lovely set. It's good to see it in use. Your card is lovely and I really like how you've coloured it and decoupaged the flower. Barbxx

    1. Thanks Barb! It is a lovely stamp set isn't it? Xx

  2. Hi April!

    This is really lovely - I so neeeed that stamp set! And Parsnip is now prancing round shouting thing such as 'Flower power for the bears' and equally silly things! Please don't encourage him :) He made me sit and make a load of little gift cards to accompany Playground prizes this afternoon - based on what he thought was an image just like his good self. i refused to add a flower behind his ear so he's now carrying one instead!(Thank goodness for a magazine freebie stamp!).

    1. Thanks Di! You're right - that bear doesn't need any encouragement! Sounds like you have had a lovely, productive afternoon :-) Xx
