Well it was back to work on Monday and I have to say that it was more like walking into a playground. I find it amazing how grown women can act like children, even the customers are putting in complaints about it. I have now got to hold a listening group to bring the department back to normality.
Anyway, a bit of stress relief come this morning in the form of my Wednesday morning craft club. I have gone very pink and girly for this card. The digital stamp is from Aurora Wings and I have coloured it using ProMarkers.
I have printed from my computer, three matching patterned digital papers and layered each one onto pink card stock leaving a small border around the edge. Next I have wrapped a piece of pink organza ribbon around these layers. This has formed my background.
Using the Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments die set, I have cut out the largest from white card stock. This has then been inked using the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Victorian Velvet ink pad. Next, to give it some sparkle, I have stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed using Wow Vintage Romance embossing powder.
This frame has been layered over the digital stamp using Pinflair glue to add dimension and for a little extra interest, I have used a 3D clear gloss finish on the marbles of the digital stamp.
The flowers have been made using the Heartfelt Creations Sun-Kissed Fleur stamp and die set. Onto white card, I have stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed using the Wow Vintage Romance embossing powder. Next, I have added colour with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Victorian Velvet ink pad. The flowers have been cut out using the matching die, shaped and layered into two flowers. In the centre of each flower, I have added blue stamen.
I have also added buds around the flowers, two hat pins and a pink pearl flourish.
To finish, "Happy Birthday" has been placed into one corner and into the opposite corner, I have placed "Daughter".
That's all for now.
