Hi, have I mentioned how much I love the Birthday Blooms stamp set? Only a few times, right? I love how many different types of cards you can create, or you can create very similar cards but use different colourways, and they all look so fantastic. I really feel stamp sets like these offer such great value for money.
I had been wanting to experiment with the combination of the new colour Poppy Parade and Melon Mambo to colour the floral image. I thought the combination might create a really pretty pinky red. I used my Aqua Painters to apply the colour to Shimmery White Cardstock. I also used Basic Black and Granny Apple Green to finish off the design. Once finished, I trimmed it out and put it aside.
I decided to keep the card itself very simple with the floral image the main star of the piece. I thought a nice white background would be the perfect stage for it but it needed a little texture. As I was flicking through my embossing folders I couldn’t decide between the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and the Hexagons Dynamics Textured Embossing Folder so I decided to use both and create two cards.
For the first card, I used a landscape design and featured the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.
Here’s the card…
For the second card, I used a portrait design with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.

I love the combination of the Poppy Parade and Melon Mambo and hope to experiment further with it in the future. I also love the elegance of the cards and I think it would look lovely in any other colour combination too. One idea could be to create a white flower on the white background. Another idea could be to emboss the flower in gold and use a corresponding sentiment also embossed in gold. I think that would be really lovely as well. And now you can tell why I spend so much time working with the Birthday Blooms set. There are just so many different ways you can use this set.
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.
