I hope you all enjoyed the weekend.
one of my customers asked if it’s still possible to order the Colour Me
Happy Stamp Set.
Although I recognised the name, I just couldn’t place it,
until I picked it off my shelf!
as I saw the images on the front of the box, I remembered it was the
stamp set that went with a kit that was released when the Stampin’
Blends first became available.
I bought the kit and the stamp set and
loved them both, so I made up my mind to use the two birds in the stamp
set for today’s card, or not!! LOL!
I did use the stamp set, I only managed to get as far as the flower;
maybe I’ll get to the birds today! I love white heat-embossing on Crumb
Cake Cardstock (CS), and I created seven of the flowers which I fussy
Why did I do seven? That’s how many I could get on the scrap of
paper I picked out of the Crumb Cake CS scrap wallet, and in case one or
more didn’t emboss very nicely!
My plan was to make my card
tone-on-tone, but then I wondered if I could use Crumb Cake CS with a
I was pleasantly surprised at how many different colours I could
choose from, and settled on Pink Pirouette CS.
I spent a little while
playing with the seven flowers in different arrangements, which included
three in the top right-hand corner and one in the bottom left-hand
I thought this looked lovely, and decided I would need a large sentiment to fill the space in between.
As I was abut to get my Stamp Reference File out to look for one, the
flowers had almost formed a wreath.
Although it was overlarge, and very
mishappen, it looked good -I was confident I could do something with it, and I did!
I started to think about a sentiment, and found this HAPPY BIRTHDAY and
the banner in the In the Trees Stamp Set.
I stamped the banner using
Versamark first, and then stamped the sentiment inside it.
It took me five
attempts to get the sentiment straight. LOL!
After I had dipped the
images in White Embossing Powder, I used my Heat Tool to set the image,
which I found was very easy to fussy cut.
used the fabulous Sale-a-bration Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder
for the top Pink Pirouette CS layer and adhered it to a Whisper White CS
I adhered the flowers on Dimensionals.
I used double layer Mini
Dimensionals just in the centre of the sentiment that was going
in-between the flowers; I have left the two ends “floating”.
I’d wrap some Crumb Cake Ribbon around the front of the card, and tied
it in a bow, which finished off my card beautifully………..except
for the pearls of course!
Then I added this to the Pink Pirouette CS
card base, and a layer of Whisper White CS inside the card.
the seventh flower in the bottom right-hand corner.
Maybe today, I’ll experiment with the same stamp set, but tone-on-tone! Watch this space! ☺
That’s it from me today, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.

I like this card Jan, this embossing folder is so popular and it very very effective. It looks like it might have to go to the top of my Wish List. I think you should get a T-ruler, I love mine it helps me get everything straight. You should try one, very cheap to purchase too.
