Happy Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Don’t know about you but its been a busy late night week for me a work. I’ve not had any time to craft this week until this morning, now that I’ve made my card for todays post I feel a little better. I’ve some errands to run and hope to make another card or project today.
Card for today is for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge, theme – Floral. My first thought when I saw the theme was floral was to use the Birthday Blossoms stamp set from Stampin Up as I just love the flowers in the stamp set. Next I decided I wanted to go outside the box and do a floral birthday card for an October birthday using Pumpkin Pie & Black, traditional Halloween colors.
To get started on my card I first stamped the pansy flower from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set using Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock and punched them out with the matching punch. Next using Basic Black card stock, Clear Stampin Embossing powder and Versamark Ink, stamped and embossed a few sets of leaves, using my paper snips to hand cut them out. The base of the card is Very Vanilla, with a mat of Basic Black and a piece of designer series paper from the Happy Hauntings pack. First I arranged the flowers and leaves in the left corner then adhered them using liquid glue and dimensionals (one in the corner), sentiment in the upper right is also from the same stamp set and Black heat embossed on the card. As a final touch, I used from Orange Peel stickles from my craft stash for glitz on the flowers. Now this card is ready for a October birthday!
