Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today, I decided to be smart. I’ve been playing catch up for birthdays. So, I thought perhaps I should make a few birthday cards for just in case or oops, it’s the last minute. As I’m still in a coloring mood, Beautiful Day with Playful Backgrounds was a great choice!
Beautiful Day with Playful Backgrounds
Today’s color combo is similar but different from one I used last week.
Don’t you love that you can easily shift a color or two in or out and you’re ready to create?
For my birthday card, I used Pineapple Punch, Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist and
Granny Apple Green.
I think that last may be a new favorite.
Currently, I’m loving Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green together.
So, I used them for my base and first layer.
Next, I created a mask for the large Beautiful Day flower.
Then, I stamped the flower in Smoky Slate onto the Whisper White focal layer
and onto an extra scrap.
With the mask in place, I stamped elements from
Playful Backgrounds in Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green.
To color in the flower, I used my Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends and
the Color Lifter.
For the flower center, I used my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker.
Next, I cut a portion of the flower stamped on a the scrap piece and
adhered it with Dimensionals.
After masking the Happy Birthday sentiment from Beautiful Day,
I stamped it and then cut it in half.
Behind “birthday”, I added loops of Gold Metallic Thread.
After adding a strip of 1/8″ Pineapple Punch Ribbon, I added a
Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon bow.
And to finish, I used some Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots.
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my Beautiful Day with Playful Backgrounds
