Happy Birthday



It's turning out to be birthday week on the blog....I am in need of a lot of birthday cards this month.  I'm absolutely loving the inspiration from the current Online Card Class.  Karolyn of Paper Therapy (who I was lucky enough to spend a crafty weekend with this fall!) had a super fun technique called velveteen stamping. I've used this technique a long time ago, but forgot how much I love it.  I stamped the base of my card with the Hero Arts Envelope Stamp background stamp and then finished off the card with Verve flowers and a Verve sentiment.  Loving the end result.  And I'm going to have to buy more Simon Says Stamps inks...love them!

This is so gorgeous, I wish I had done the class. Maybe in the spring when I have a bit more time. Love the colours of your flowers and such a perfect birthday card!

I love love your stamping on this one! I bet the card is even more beautiful in person...that's how I find with this type of technique! You've earned yourself an A +++!

I didn't even notice the texture on the flower till you mentioned it, just thought it was part of the stamp. Love the pop of colour on the left.

I love this technique but don't have a good stamp to do it with. Your flowers are beautiful done that way.

Marisa said...

Way to flash the Verve :) Lovely card as always!

Dude! This is AMAZE-BALLS!! Those brilliant dye inks just pop right off the page, and I so love how that "secret" background pops right out! You nailed this one, sistah!! Adding it to my faves!! XOXO

Love those flowers--and the way you have them over to the far left. I've been eyeing some SSS inks--glad to hear that you like them.
