Stippled Blossoms Scalloped Birthday Card

I can't resist any flower stamp and the beautiful roses in the new Stippled Blossoms are some of the most beautiful stamps I've ever used!  I saw this lovely card by Cindy Beach and changed the size and sentiment and created my own card.  I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to perfectly line up the flowers for the beautiful dimension of colors that the two-step stamping creates.  And did you notice that the new large scallop edgelit perfectly coordinates with the Delicate Designs embossing folder?  Love it!

Happiness is...

Although I didn't get to attend the Stampin' Up! convention this year, I was grateful for all the demonstrators who posted lots of great photos of projects, boards, swaps and all the other fun samples at convention.  One of the pictures showed a project that Shelli, the CEO of the company, had created with the Besty's Blossoms stamp set.

I loved it so much that I adapted it into a card.  It was a lot of embossing and cutting, but the results were well worth the effort!

I embossed the Distressed Dots background, the flower and leaves, and the bird.  I embossed, cut out and popped up the wing on the bird.  I popped everything on dimensionals and added the happiness sentiment on a bitty banner.

Blooming with Kindness Birthday Card with Tutorial

I'm in love with the beautiful chrysanthemum flower from the new Blooming with Kindness stamp set. I used the masking technique to create the green background around the flower and added some dimension with white craft ink on the embossed framed tulip frame.  I'm on a tutorial roll, so I've created a tutorial so you can see exactly how to create the masks.
