I used both the Print Shop: Fresh Floral Stamp set and Birthday Blooms stamp set, which are part of the sale, to create these two cards. I used additional stamps/dies that are NOT part of the sale, but I will link them anyway in case you are interested.
To begin, I die cut four each of ALL the pieces included in the Print Shop: Fresh Floral die collection and then used my mini MISTI to get them all inked up. Once they were all done, I set them aside to work on the focal panel.
I used the smallest of the Postal Frames Dies to die cut the focal panel. I stamped the postal circles and leaf portion using the Pretty Postmarks Stamp Set in the upper right corner. I love adding these sweet postal images to many of my designs, and I just love how these turned out.
I had some leftover die cut/stamped sentiments from the Birthday Blooms stamp set, so I pulled those out and put them to good use on these two birthday designs. I stamped the other portion of the sentiments directly onto the focal panel using my mini MISTI.
Once that was done, I had fun arranging the foliage and flowers here and there, securing them with foam squares. My colors were inspired by the sweater I was wearing, and then I added in some rich, regal tones to accent the pinks! All of the inks are from Pinkfresh Studio with the exception of Simply Chartreuse from Papertrey Ink that I used on the main portion of foliage. The pink flowers use Ballet Slipper, Sparkling Rose and Raspberry Bliss ink. The purple flowers are made with Soft Lilac, Candy Violet, and Regal Kiss. I accented the Simply Chartreuse leaves with Olive ink from Pinkfresh Studio.
I stamped two 4 by 5 1/4 inch Kraft panels using the Windowpane Plaid Background Stamp and then added them to the top folding A2 Kraft card bases using foam squares for dimension. The focal panels are also attached using additional foam squares.
A few sparkling clear sequins here and there finish off these simple, floral birthday designs!
I will also include some of my favorite projects using some of the other sale sets! Thanks for fluttering by!
