Today I have a sneak peek at a new stamp set that will be available in the Occasions catalogue which will be available from 5th Jan 2016. The stamp set is called Birthday blooms and it is such a pretty stamp. I made this card for a special friend for her birthday, but unfortunately due to the slowness of the post at this time of year she had not received it by her special day 🙁
Usually watercolour paper I first used versamark ink and stamped the image onto the paper then embossed usuing white embossing powder. I then coloured the flower using elegant eggplant and wisteria wonder, and pumpkin pie for the stamins in the centre of the flower. Mossy meadow was chosen for the leaves.
Finally, using the decorative label punch I punched out the sentiment after stamping it with elegant eggplant ink. Before the ink could dry, I covered it in clear embossing powder and heat set it to give the sentiment a nice shine!
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and don’t forget if you would like a new Occasions catalogue sent to you just drop me an email.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
