Hi, whilst I am very excited to see all the new items coming our way in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, there are a few stamp sets which have been favourites of mine and I am so sad they are retiring. One such stamp set is Birthday Blooms. This is one of the first sets I purchased when I signed up to be a Demonstrator. I *LOVE* it! I have made so many cards with this set. It also happens to be one of my favourite stamp sets to make “similar but different” style of card sets.
Today I am sharing two cards which are “similar but different” and they are using new colours coming to the range. I have made a LOT of these cards in the past so if this design is of interest to you, search for Birthday Blooms in the Search bar or click on the Birthday Blooms tab.
Here’s the card…
My colour palette for this card is the new Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch. Such a pretty combination! I coloured directly onto the paper (Shimmery White Cardstock) with the markers but I also used my Aqua Painters to paint some of the colours (the leaves and the petals) to get some lovely shades.
For my second card, I wanted to show you that you can create softer cards using this same method and they look equally as good. My colour palette is Petal Pinks, Granny Apple Green, So Saffron and Balmy Blue. Once again, I used a combination of colouring directly onto the paper (Shimmery White Cardstock) and painting with my Aqua Painters.
Here’s the card…
I could sit and make cards like these all day! I love playing with different colour combinations and I love colouring! And, of course, I just love the Birthday Blooms stamp set. If the Birthday Blooms is a favourite of yours too, it is still available in my online shop but only until May 31st, 2018.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount and wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to all.
