Just Happy Birthday



Good morning, today I am over at the Chocolate Baroque blog sharing a couple of creations from my makes for the recent Hochanda release of the lovely new floral stamps and colouring kit.

For this card I used a diluted mix of Distress Ink to wash a piece of white cardstockock and then used the beautiful Floral Harmony stamp which I repeat stamped using Versamark and detail white embossing powder. After coloring the flowers with sparkle pens I used Distress Ink and a stencil to add some flourishes to the top corner, next I took three square dies but before cutting I used them as a guide to place the stamped sentiment which is from Words to Dazzle and Sparkle. I then cut the piece into three and layered up onto a piece of black card using foam pads and made each layer slightly higher as I worked towards the centre.


And here is a colouring page from me from the Colouring Collection which has the most adorable designs. It's a well known fact to those who know me that I am not a colourist but I have to say I really did enjoy doing this one for which I used colouring pencils and blending solution. When finished I added a some tiny dots using Liquid Pearls.

My thanks to you all for taking a peek today and if you were lucky enough to grab yourself some of the new stamps and pages I know you will be having fun creating with them.

Hi Brenda. What a gorgeous
card, so delicate looking with the white embossing. This is a great stamp too.
I tried to post a comment on Chocolate Baroque but for some reason my computer will not let me!
Your samples on the programmes are always lovely too.
Best wishes

Hi, Brenda - thinking of you as your recover, and prepare for your next procedure. Thank you for gifting me this fine morning with your incredible artwork - from the stenciled background of the first "pyramid" card (I've never made one, but now that I've seen the layers in yours, definitely want to try it out), and your gorgeous stamped floral image in the 2nd card from the coloring kit. BEAUTIFUL CARDS, B. xx

Greta said...

Oh wow, Brenda--2 of my favorite cards! Beautiful coloring for the second one, but the first one just keeps drawing me back! Love the images, colors, design--everything! PS--Interesting Holly had pancreatitis, too & sure hope she's totally recovered now. Must have been scary with her needing the surgery. Fritz seems pretty much his old self now, so the new food must be what he needs--thank goodness!

Linby said...

Love the effect you achieved with the dies - one of these days I am going to attempt this myself......

Robin said...

More gorgeous cards! Your multilayer card is so beautiful and I just love all the flowers! Hugs, Robin
