Hi there! I have a totally random post today… I made this card a few weeks ago and haven’t had time to blog about it yet. This project uses products from a newer company: Birch Press Designs. This card uses one of my favorite color combinations and some pretty pink blooms, as well as a beautiful stencil from Hero Arts. I wanted to just play with my inks, and this beautiful stamp set and stenciling definitely fit the bill!
I started by stamping the beautiful blooms from Birch Press Design’s Brushed Birthday using Altenew’s Frosty Pink and Coral Berry inks, then cut them out with the coordinating dies. (I can’t really remember which green inks I used for the leaves…. whoops!) I then heat embossed the greeting from the same stamp set onto some vellum using white embossing powder and die cut it, as well.
For the background, I used the Hero Arts Glorious Petal stencil using my Clarity Stencil Brushes and some Hero Arts Tide Pool ink. I love the subtle tone-on-tone effect this color has on the turquoise card stock. I arranged my bouquet and picked it up using Press ‘n Seal, then adhered it with dimensional tape. I also popped up my vellum greeting with some clear dimensional adhesive, which I find to be wonderful when working with vellum.
And that’s it! No coloring on this one, but I do enjoy getting back to my roots sometimes with just some good, old-fashioned stamping.
