Garden Girl 5th Birthday Card

By | January 21, 2018

Hi there

Taking a quick break from sharing projects from the Occasions Catalogue to share I card I made last month for a friends youngest who turned 5.  She has three older brothers so wanted to make a really ‘girlie’ card.

I don’t own any kids stamps as my nieces and nephews are older but I really wanted to use this stamp set – so thanks to my fellow demo Patrice for coming to my rescue 🙂

I’ve coloured the images in using the new Stampin’ Blends which are alcohol markers.  These are available in the Occasions  Catalogue (page 30 – 31).  The Stampin’ Blends come in 12 colours – with a light and a dark in each colour.  There are also three other colours – Ivory, Bronze and a Colour Lifter.

For this card I’ve used a combination of all the colours – some light, some dark.  The Ivory was used for her skin.  The card base is Sweet Sugarplum and the number is cut out using the Large Numbers Framelits.

I must admit I am enjoying using the Stampin’ Blends for colouring in – it’s very relaxing.  Always stamp your outline image in Black Memento Ink – page 200 of the Annual Catalogue.

I’ll be back tomorrow to share some projects I made as a Display Stamper for OnStage using products from the Petal Passion Suite.  See you then.
