Similar but Different (Birthday Blooms)

by Kylie

Hi Everyone, I hope you are ready to see a LOT of cards today. They are all ‘similar but different’. I make a lot of cards this way because I am always thinking about what the design might look like if I changed the colour, or the colouring medium, or the sentiment, or even the card orientation (portrait or landscape). I don’t always share all of my different combinations but I have decided to do so today as I want to show that even with one basic design there are countless ways we can change it up. I know I am guilty of using a stamp set once and then moving onto the next thing, but I think if we really stop and just PLAY with our stamps we can create any number of amazing card designs. I know I love when I see people returning to stamp sets again and again to share new designs and techniques.

The cards I am sharing today are all quite similar, as I have said, but I think you can see how I have only begun to scratch the surface when it comes to how you can use the stamp set Birthday Blooms. I *love* the Birthday Blooms stamp set. Colouring the main floral image brings me great joy. I find it relaxing to stamp up a bunch of images and then just play with colours and colouring mediums. I hope you find some inspiration from the following thirteen cards! WOW!

Hi Karrie, thank you! I love that stamp set! To create the black background I simply coloured it with a black marker. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

Beautiful cards. How did you do the cards with the black backgrounds? They don’t look fussy cut.

Hi Janice, thanks for your comment and please accept my apologies for the delay in replying. For the black background, I simply coloured in all the white space with a black marker. 🙂 Much easier than fussy cutting! 🙂
