Welcome back stampers! Today’s share is for a beautiful birthday card using Stampin’ Up!’s Bordering Blooms Stamp Set. The set consists of 4 bordering stamp images and are just plain fun to stamp with. Look and see if you don’t agree?
Bordering Blooms Birthday Card How to:
1. Cut an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Mossy Meadow Card Stock and score it at 4-1/4″.
2. Cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock.
3. On the piece of Whisper White Card Stock stamp the vine image from the Bordering Blooms Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. Stamp the vine along the top and bottom of the Whisper White. The placement is so easy, because this stamp set is a photopolymer set. Photopolymer stamps are very sticky, stinky when new, takes dye ink and pigment ink equally well, stains easily (although that doesn’t affect the stamped images), firmer material that tends to give cleaner impressions Acrylic (and other mystery materials): a bit less sticky, not stinky, works with pigment or versa ink but not dye ink, can stain too but not as readily as polymer, softer texture that is prone to spreading while being stamped I usually don’t like symmetrical stamping, but this is the way I started this card on the top and bottom.
4. On the middle of the card, toward the right hand side stamp the “Warmest Wishes” greeting in Strawberry Slush Ink. This greeting is from the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set.
5. On the left hand side of the card I made a bow using the Stitched Satin Mossy Meadow Ribbon. I wrapped a piece around the Whisper White card layer before adhering the Whisper White layer down.
6. To complete the card and tie in the Strawberry Slush Ink, I punched Strawberry Slush flowers out using the Itty Bitty Accent Punch. For each flower I punched two shapes and I layered and rotated them to look like flowers.
7. In each flower center I placed a Basic Pearl.
