Birthday Blooms

It's my Mom's birthday next week so I thought I'd make her a floral card.

I simply adore all of my beautifully ornate Flourishes stamps sets so I chose this beautiful floral bouquet to stamp and colour as my focal image.

supplies: stamps, Flourishes; die cut shapes, Spellbinder's; inks, Memento, Ranger, Copic; patterned papers, BasicGrey; pearls, Hero Arts; cardstock, Bazzill, Gina K. Designs; embossing folder, Sizzix; other, thread.

Here's a close up of the layered pieces of die cut shapes by Spellbinder's and the embossed black cardstock...

I also decorated the inside too...

I sure hope she'll like it....


O'Christmas Tree!

I love incorporating stamps into my layouts whenever possible. For one of my latest layouts, I used the whimsical "O Christmas Tree" stamp set from myStamp BOX. I just adore all the different trees that you can add to your creations!

For my layout, I started off by stamping a dark green tree and then masking it off to stamp a lightly lighter green tree behind it. The masking and layering creates a more realistic scene with some trees being in the foreground versus the back ground.

Dec. 25

All layout supplies in the December kit except stamps and inks.

For this page I used the WeScrap December kit, "Winter Bliss". I just adore the colour palette of blues, purples and greens!

To add a little touch of shimmer, I used the Glaze pen in the kit to highlight some of the details on my stamped trees.

myStamp BOX is in the throws of it's 12 Days of Christmas! Make sure you check out the weekday posts by the mSB design team.
