I hope you all had a truly joyous Christmas!
We certainly did and would have liked it to have gone on for a few more hours!
To make today's card, I used the Sale-a-bration Stamp Set called Flowering Fields and my chosen colour is Calypso Coral.
I started with a card base of Whisper White followed by a Layer of Calypso Coral.
I embossed the top Whisper White layer using the Fluttering Embossing Folder.
I punched out four 1.25" Whisper White Squares and four 1 3/8" Calypso Coral squares.
Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped three of the different flowers on the white squares and painted them using inks and a blender pen.
The green ink I used is Old Olive.
Then I cut a piece of Calypso Coral Card Stock that measures 3 1/8" x 1 3/8" and a piece of Whisper white that measures 3" x 1.25".
Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink I stamped another of the flowers and coloured in using the same method as previously.
I adhered the layers together with Tombow Glue and then adhered to card base using Dimensionals.
For each of the small squares, I cut 2 Dimensionals in half and adhered one piece in each corner.
The sentiment stamp is from the Amazing Birthday Stamp Set.
The full stamp has Happy four times but I wanted to keep the square to the same size as the three small flowers.
I covered the top two HAPPY's and the bottom BIRTHDAY TO YOU with tape and stamped in the Calypso Coral Ink.
I removed the tape and painted the last two lines using my Old Olive Marker Pen.
I huffed on the stamp to make sure all the ink was moist and I stamped onto the last small square of Whisper White Card Stock.
I finished off with a hand tied bow using out Whisper White Baker's Twine to the largest flower.
I'd like to show you my Christmas Tree as I have about
twelve of my handmade decorations on there.
I've made videos showing how to make them all.
The decorations include folding stars, fir cone baubles (that holds a battery-operated tea light), German bells and baubles made from a Stampin' Up! ornament die.
I have quite a lot of my other hand made decorations around the house.
I'll try and remember to photograph them later today so I can share them with you in tomorrow's blog!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
