Summer Brights

Good afternoon everyone

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so fair and getting lots of crafting done.  This morning I have spent catching up of some of the unfinished jobs.  

I have managed to get one card made this morning with the theme of a Daughters Birthday.  With all the lovely sunshine at the moment, I have chosen bright pinks, greens and lots of flowers.


I have started with a square piece of white card stock which I have embossed using the Die'sire Flower Power embossing folder.  Next using a pink ink pad, I have added colour to the edges and then layered onto a piece of green Centura Pearl card.

Next, I have taken a panel of pink Centura Pearl card and randomly stamped a floral pattern with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Pearl Lustre embossing powder.  A piece of green ribbon has been wrapped around one corner of this pink card.


The image is a digital stamp from Sherri Baldy which I have coloured using ProMarkers and then cut her out.  To add interest, I have glued some silver seed beads to her hair and the flowers on her dress.

Next, Using the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles, I have cut the largest from the green Centura Pearl card.  I have then added a panel of white card to the centre.  The digital stamp has been layered onto this using Pinflair glue to give dimension.


For the flowers, I have stamped the Heartfelt Creations Sun-Kissed Fleur with Perfect Medium onto white card stock and heat embossed with the Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Pearl Lustre.  I have then added colour using the same pink ink pad as the background.  I have layered up four flowers and using Pinflair glue, added seed beads to the centres.  To smaller flowers have been made in the same way from the pink Centura Pearl cards.  Glitter glue has been added to the petals of the flowers.

Four of these flowers have been placed in the bottom right hand corner of the card along with some leaves cut using the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet die set.  The other two have been placed in the top right hand corner of the card.


To finish the card, I have cut a Happy Birthday from pink Centura Pearl using the Whimsy Stamps Birthday Sentimentables and Daughter from green Centura Pearl using the Tattered Lace Family Sentiments.
