IB53 - Happy Birthday


They have a very playful inspiration at this week's Inspired by All the Little Things:







I stamped and embossed the edge of the hydrangea stamp along the edge of my panel. I then masked this and stamped and embossed another impression to create my border.

You can see in the quick video that I get depth and interest in the colour of the flowers by using a light layer of one colour, then, once it's dry, adding a layer of a similar/darker colour. I used Blue Gray (092), Deep Blue (035), Bright Yellow (042), Orange (070), Pink (020) and Light Carmine (021) for my flowers and Light Blue (036) for my 'halo'.

I focused on:
-the colours
-the silver sparkle

FS533 - Happy Mother's Day


Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper, Kelly, aka MiamiKel4.

I chose this card as my inspiration:



I focused on Kelly's
-layout
-large frame

I changed
-colours
-balloons to flowers
-button to hearts

I LOVE this little graphic flower that Kristina Werner designed. Fun to colour and so easy to use. All the little icons in this set are fun, but I'm thinking this one is my favourite! I went with a more coral pink tone and added some blue-greens to the leaves.

I used:
-Simon Says Stamp Mom and Dad Icons and matching dies
-Simon Says Stamp You're a Deer
-Simon Says Stamp Roses for You
