Today I used the "Blooms and Wishes" stamp set to design a colorful birthday card.
I had the idea to use it in a kind of ombre way... so I used 3 shades of ink that were in the coral color family from lighest to darkest.
I used a simple masking pattern by only blocking off three diagonal lines. I started with the lightest color, flirty flamingo at the bottom, with calypso coral in the middle and topped it off with watermelon wonder ink. So simple and so pretty.
I used the 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" circle punches to frame the greeting from the "Blooms and Wishes" stamp set. I love how this set gives the flowers a watercolor vibe.
I framed the flowers with basic black cardstock and used flirty flamingo cardstock for the card base. The punch circle is watermelon wonder cardstock. Again I used the Project Life Journal pen for the fine dotted line.
I think it turned out sweet. I hope you give this technique a try. Its super easy and super fun!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
