Now that I’ve given my friend her birthday card I can post it. I CASED this card from Diana Gibbs. She has a wonderful video tutorial on her blog. I’ve been wanting to use the Birthday Bakery stamp set and this was the perfect opportunity. This stamp set is so cute and is a hostess level 1 stamp set that can be earned with a $150 workshop. If you’d like to earn this stamp set call me to book your workshop.
I was trying to use colors that would look like a little shop in Paris. The photo was difficult to photograph but I also used Dazzling Diamonds and Moonlighting Smooch on the baked goods which worked perfectly for this card. I used a blender pen and ink pads to water color the images. If you haven’t tried water coloring it’s a lot of fun and it takes me back to my childhood. So relaxing. It’s like I always say to my friends that think they are ordering way too much Stampin’ up products – “It’s cheaper than therapy. You need this for your mental health”. LOL Here’s my card.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
