Have an Amazing Birthday

Hi there!

Have you ever noticed yourself leaning strongly to a particular color or color blend?  If not with your cards, maybe with your clothing or décor?  I swear I’m stuck in a color-loving rut lately because I am still drawn to all shades of orangey-pink!  I don’t know what it is about this color blend, but it definitely speaks to me!  So much so, that I feel like I have no other choice lately but to lean into it!

So, today, I’m sharing yet another orangey-pink card I made.  This time, I’m using the Altenew Primrose stamp set and add-on layer die. 

To make this card, I embossed the flowers and leaves with white embossing powder, ink-blended them, and die cut them. 

Next, I ink-blended a slightly darker shade of orangey-pink on scrap paper and used it to die cut the center for the flowers using the add-on dies.  I glued the centers to the flowers and set them aside.

For the background, I ink-blended the top left corner of panel with that same orangey-pink color, then cut it out with a stitched die.  I determined the layout for my flowers and secured the layout together using Press-n-Seal.  I used the Press-n-Sealed arrangement as a guide for where to stamp my sentiment.

Once the background panel was ready, I adhered the flower arrangement by gluing a couple of flowers and leaves directly to the panel and popping one flower & leaf up using foam tape.

I popped the entire panel up on a card front and then added some coordinating pearls to the center of the flowers and to frame the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
