For my projects, I used the beautiful Birthday Blooms stamp set. I fell in love with this stunning floral stamp set as soon as I saw it, and knew I had to have it! :D


I created 2 cards and a gift bag using this set. For the gift bag, I used Versamark to create a watermark effect on a Petite Cafe bag, and finished it off with the sparkly Pool Party glitter ribbon, a few banners of Birthday Bouquet DSP, and a simple stamped tag.


For the first card, I used a card base of Whisper White and embossed my card front with the Softly Falling embossing folder. This was layered with a strip of Vellum on top; and finished off with a watercoloured flower, that had been stamped with Archival Black ink. This was then fussy cut, and lightly brushed with Clear Wink Of Stella. Some silver sequins finished off the card. Here it is:

For the second card, I used a card base of Blushing Bride. A banner of Birthday Bouquet DSP was layered on the card, and a watercoloured flower, heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, was layered onto a Vellum 2″ circle, and adhered in place. Gold sequins and a few dots of Gold Wink Of Stella finished off the card. Here it is:
