Today I started supplementing my birthday card supply. Lots of birthdays will be coming up in March as well as an anniversary.
For inspiration I used the photo shown at the Double D's Challenge Blog as they are celebrating their first year anniversary during the month of January and are offering prizes too. I chose to use the colors of peach, green and white and did a rose flower design.
The stamps I used for the flowers and leaves is from the Gina K. Designs set called Better With You and the sentiment is from Gina K. Designs set called Made With Love. Gina K. Designs inks used were Peach Bellini and Fresh Asparagus. I also used Versafine Onyx Black ink for the sentiment.
The flowers and leaves were done with a masking method. But as I wanted a more subtle color I took and swiped some of the ink of each color in the lid and with a blender pen picked up the color and got more of a water color look. I then fussy cut this design. And, in the center of the blooms I did one rose blossom separately and popped it up over the others.
I used Gina K. Designs Peach Bellini and Jelly Bean Green card stock for my card and die cut the peach panel for the bottom layer and then after the top layer of the same size was die cut I proceeded to take another die and cut a scalloped stitch edge. These were layered together and placed on the white card stock base. The roses were placed on this panel. After adding the sentiment I then finished the card with some white pearls and a double loop white organza polka dot ribbon bow which was made with my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker..
Dies used are:
Die-namics MFT-839 Wonky Stitched Rectangles and Die-Namics MFT-986 Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges.
Crafters Companion Glue Pen
2-Way Glue Pen
All Night Media Mini Pop Dots

Well, I had planned so much that I was going to accomplish today but alas, this is the only card I completed today. But it was fun. Yesterday I had to bake and do laundry so that was as creative as I got.
I hope your new year is off to a great start. I know mine is. I just found out that I won the entire release from Sparkle N Sprinkle for just leaving a comment. I am thrilled! I think I have lots to keep me busy for a long time to come now. And, the new release has so many wonderful stamp sets too. I know I am a happy camper at least.
Well, time to work on the evening meal. Thanks for dropping in and for all the wonderful comments. I read them all and love to hear from you.
