Happy Birthday (Falling Flowers)

Hi Everyone, today I’m featuring three cards using the Falling Flowers stamp set.  If you like heat embossing, and really who doesn’t love watching the heat melt the embossing powder to create such a glossy, shiny finish, this style of card might be for you.  I stamped lots of the images from the stamp set using the whisper white ink on whisper white cardstock.  I sprinkled the embossing powder on as I went because it is quite difficult to see white ink on white cardstock.  I then heated all the embossing powder and set to colouring the images.  I squeezed the ink pads so a bit of ink remained on the lid and used this as my palette.  I then painted all the images.  Such a soft pretty look, don’t you think?  All that remained was to die cut the images out and layer them onto the card panel in an appealing way.

Here’s the card…

For my second card, all I did was substitute the pool party background for crumb cake. I love this look!

If you aren’t a fan of so much white embossing, that isn’t a problem! For the next card, I swapped out the white embossing on the base of the card and used versamark ink in its place. It gives a much softer look.

Can you imagine how pretty this card design might be if you used pink pirouette or wisteria wonder as a base?  Or perhaps, you could do all the stamping with night of navy or early espresso and create a monochromatic look?   Isn’t it so much fun to experiment with colours?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!
