Black & Yellow Birthday


Hi, friends!  I'm back today with a bold and bright birthday card made using some of the *NEWEST* stamps from The Stamps of Life!  I am super excited about this card, so I hope you like it!  Take a peek...


The background was made with the *NEW* flowers2diefor stamp set.  There are SO many different flower images in this set--it is awesome!  The background was created by inking up a panel with Banana ink, then stamping different flower images in Licorice ink into onto the panel.  Finally, I stamped the entire panel onto some Powdered Sugar cardstock.  The effect is SO textured--it looks kind of soft and fuzzy!


The sentiment is from the happycalligraphy2stamp set.  I stamped the image onto vellum, then heat embossed it.  I chose vellum so that you could still see some of the fabulous flowers through the panel. :)


The flower was created by layering die cut pieces from the Sizzix Triplits Flowers #3 set.  I added a few black enamel dots from the Sky & Licorice Epoxy embellishment set, one as the center of this fun flower.


I am SO pleased with how this card turned out!  I hope you like it, too!  What do you think?  Please let me know in the comments below! :)


I'd like to enter this card into these fabulous challenges~







Thank you so very much for stopping by today!  I hope you take some time to play along with these fabulous challenges, or at least take a bit of time to do what you love!  I'll be back later with more paper crafted creations to share!  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
