Birthday Blooms

Pin It
I had a BBB (big brown box) arrive today with lots of toys oops I meant tools.
In the box there was Birthday Blooms Stamp Set which I ordered in wood when I normally buy clear mount.
But because I made this mistake I can show a tip I  saw online the other week.
Take a photo of the wood blocks before you remove to mount them, so you know how to put them back into the case.
I have used this Stamp Set for today's card.
It's a great stamp set for water colouring, I coloured it with Mint Macron and Wink of Stella Gold for the leaves and centre of the flower.
I have used this weeks colours over at The Colour Tree, go over and have a look and join in the fun.
 I popped over to TCT yesterday to look at the top pick for lasts week's challenge.
Guess who got the top pick? YES ME. Go check out my card I entered HERE
I used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts Challenge, pop over there and have look also and join in the fun.
The Wink of Stella Gold Pen was also in the BBB.
The pen gives a real glitz to your work, the photo doesn't do it justice.
I Embossed the Mint Macron Card with Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I stamped a little flower in the inside of the card.
It's a gorgeous set of 8 Stamps.


  1. Beautiful card! The gold adds such elegance! Glad you joined us at PPA!

  2. Oh my! You are on a roll. This is so gorgeous!

  3. Pretty enough to be in an art gallery. Love the choice of colors, and the touch of gold.

  5. Thank you for the great tip Helen. I've done that too...LOL

    Your card blows itself out of the water for the Pals paper Arts sketch challenge too! It looks so expensive with the gold stripes and the Softly Falling embossing gives the card an extra lift of fluff to give it such an exquisite look. I can't thank you enough for entering this GORGEOUS card into the sketch challenge this week.

  6. Hey Helen!! I think your coloring skills are just fantastic! I think you really mastered both challenges this week. Thanks for playing along with PPA - I hope to see you there again soon!

  7. What a beautiful card. Love it!
