Amazing You, 2018 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration, Beautiful Bouquet, Southern Serenade, Birthday Card

I combined a few stamp sets here to get this card.  I used the "Amazing You" from the 2018 Sale-a-Brations catalog, "Southern Serenade" from the 2018 Occasions catalog and "Beautiful Bouquet" from the 2017-2018 catalog. 

The base of my card is a folded half sheet of Smoky Slate card stock. On top of that is my focal piece, Whisper White card stock cut 4" x 5-1/4".  

I took the lace image from the "Southern Serenade" set. I inked it up with Smoky Slate and stamped off once. I turned the stamp the so it stamped longer from side to side. I repeated this just beneath the first one.  Next I stamped the flowers on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and one on a scrap piece of copier paper to use as a mask.  I cut out the flower only.  I used some removable tape on the back of the masked piece and stuck it to the stamp. I inked up the stamp with Wild Wasabi ink and added the leaves and flowers in three different places.  Don't forget to remove the mask before stamping on the card front!

I used the new Stampin' Blends markers to color in the flowers.  I punched out three leaf sets using the leaf hand punch.  I set them around the area where I thought the flowers would go.  Then I taped down the larger flower.  By larger I mean the one that I didn't cut the center of.  Then I set the smaller (flower center one) in place using Dimensionals.  I slipped some Calypso Coral ribbon just under the flower. I did use a couple of glue dots to hold it in place.  I tied another piece of ribbon to the left into a knot.  I added a clear faceted gem to the center of the top flower.

The words are from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set using Wild Wasabi ink. I die cut it with the oval framelits and I die cut a scalloped one for the layer behind it.  I set the words in place using Dimensionals.

And for the final touch I added some coral colored sequins from the "Iridescent Sequin Assortment" pack.  I glued them in place.  After the glue set I added a small rhinestone to the center of each sequin.  Pretty, huh?  And that was it.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
