Hi friends and welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! These ladies never disappoint when it comes to stunning creativity, so I know you’re in for a fabulous blog hop!
My project today uses a beautiful new stamp set that you’ll find in the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue called Birthday Blooms.
First I made this card. Watercolouring, heat embossing, some fussy cutting. All the things that make my heart pitter patter.
Watercolouring with the Aqua Painter and my ink pads is so therapeutic. For this flower I used Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, and Cucumber Crush. I love the organic look watercolouring brings to any project.
You can see that the flower hangs off the card quite a bit, so it was time to make an oversized envelope with the Envelope Punch Board. I didn’t use any adhesive on the envelope, but created a decorative belly band to hold the envelope closed instead.
Wait, Stampin’ Up! doesn’t have black doilies…or do they? Turn those Metallic Doilies over, sponge on the ink colour of your choice, and you have whatever colour doily you want! Super easy!
You’ll find all the products I used to create this project in my Canadian Online Stampin’ Up! Shop. They’re also listed at the end of this blog post.
Now it’s time to go visit the wonderful Amy O’Neill! She’s so crazy talented.
