Birthday Blooms with Icing On The Cake

The cards I have to share with you today were inspired by Team Challenge from August!  The creative challenge was to use the colours Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Pool Party in a project.  As soon as I saw this project I knew that it was one that I needed to try!  The Cath Kidson style pattern and flowers are adorable.

I stamped the lighter, solid image first and then stamped the detailed, darker image over the top.  The stamps are photopolymer, so you can see through them to line them up.  Despite trying to stamp the roses in a random fashion there is a distinct uniformity to their placement!  

The display of cards reminds me of Goldilocks and the Three Bears...not anything to do with bears or porridge, but in a large, medium and baby sized way.   Once I'd done the biggest card I needed to do another smaller one, and then miniture ones (3"x3").  Perfect for gift tags and mini birthday wishes. 

The most surprising thing to me about these cards is how well the Powder Pink ink shows up on the Pool Party card!  The petals on the roses are really delicate with the colours really popping against the Pool Party background.  Do the smaller flowers remind you of iced party cakes and Iced Gems?

I do hope that you have enjoyed these projects.  Happy crafting,
