Floral Happy Birthday Card using Happiness Abounds. Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop May 2022

 Good Evening Everyone

Tonight I am taking part in the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop and we have a sketch layout to follow. I can't seem to put down the Happiness Abound Stamp set - so here it is again, this time with a lovely soft and subtle colour combo.


Highland Heather Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"

1pc - scrap

Mint Macaron Card Stock

1pc - 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"


Take your Highland Heather card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. Add the larger piece of basic white to the centre of the card.

Place the Mint Macaron card int he the Painted Texture embossing folder and run it through your Cut & Emboss machine. With a sponge or blending brush add some ink to the panel, this will give extra detail and really give that embossing a boost and bring out the details.

Add this to the card front.

Ink up the large flower from the Happiness abounds stamp set and make a couple of masks - you can use masking paper but I just used a post it note and made sure I stamp as much of the stamp so that it had some 'stick' to it and fussy cut very close to the outline.

Take the remaining piece of basic white, ink up the stamp again and add to one corner, ink up again and add in the opposite corner - once dry colour with Highland Heather Blends. Cover these two flower up with the masks you created earlier, then stamp the flower again twice covering the other two corner - overlapping onto the masks. Remove the masks and once the ink is dry, colour with the flirty flamingo blends.

Add this to the card front toward the lower right hand side with dimensionals.

Finally stamp the sentiment onto a strip of basic white and trim. Add this to the centre of your floral panel.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today - please continue through the hop by clicking the button below.
