Happy Blooming Birthday …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I would like to share a sweet and simple birthday card that will bring a smile to anyone who receives it.  I used the new “Flower Patch” stamp set!  This is one of our Photopolymer sets, and makes the two-step stamping super simple because of the clear images.

I have a video for you to view that highlights the “Flower Patch” stamp set …

My card base color is the new In-Color Mossy Meadow along with the Whisper White which truly highlights to ink colors we will be using on our card.

The flower was created by stamping our largest image first, in the lightest color: Crisp Cantaloupe.  I then layers the Calypso Coral next, and completed the flower with the Cajun Craze… and topped it off with a pearl.

STAMPIN’ TIP:  The leaves were added behind the flower by creating a mask.  Stamp the largest flower image on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out.  I always cut inside the line.  Then place it over the flower and stamp your leaves … it gives the appearance they are behind the flower!

It’s been a while since I’ve used a two-step stamping set and forgot how fast you can create a beautifully layered, colorful card.  I added the Daffodil Delight flowers in the background to create another pop of color.

As the video states, the Flower Patch stamp set has a coordinating framelit; Flower Flair, and when bundled you get a 15% savings!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video!

Happy Birthday ~
