Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms

I used the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set to make a card focusing on the neutrals color palette.

Birthday Blooms - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players #279.

And the colors for my card were inspired by The Card Concept #47.  I’d say that my card is in the clean and layered category.

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.  Then I inked the image from the First Sight stamp set in Soft Suede ink, stamped it off once and then stamped it on a wide strip of Very Vanilla card stock.  I repeated this process until the image was stamped over the entire panel, then I adhered it with SNAIL to the embossed panel.

Birthday Blooms 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I wrapped a strand of Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the panel and adhered it with SNAIL, then adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla card base with SNAIL.  I stamped the flower image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

Birthday Blooms 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I used my Soft Suede, Smoky Slate and Early Espresso ink pads and my Aqua Painter to add just a touch of color to the image, then I cut it out with a Circles Collection Framelits Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Birthday Blooms 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment and flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set in Soft Suede and Smoky Slate inks on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, then cut it out with the die from the Circle Card Thinlits die set.  I adhered the sentiment die cut to the card front with SNAIL and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Birthday Blooms 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I inked the flower image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set in Soft Suede ink, stamped it on scrap paper once, then stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock inside the card.
