Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the US. And, welcome to Bron’s Birthday Blog Hop 1! We’re a group of stamping friends that are celebrating Bron’s 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes! We have an inspiration pic that we’ve all used for our creations for for today’s hop. I’ve made a Slim Sayings birthday slimline card to share with you.
Bron’s Birthday Blog Hop 1
As I mentioned, for our hop, we’re all using the inspiration photo above for our creations. To use an inspiration photo, you can choose the overall theme, the colors, the way it makes you feel, textures or even just copying the elements in the photo into your creation. Inspiration photos make a great jumping off point to get your creative juices flowing!
Slim Sayings Birthday Slimline Card
As I was trying to decide what to make for this Hop, this sheet of Flowering Fields Designer Paper caught my eye. Looking at the pattern, I thought of waves crashing on the sand — though in slightly different colors. For me, that tied back around to the beachy feel of the inspiration pic above.
Then, my design really started as I began to think about how to layer my card and still show the movement in the designer paper.
I came up with this gilded, translucent Vellum circle and a die cut from the Slim Card Dies. Next, I layered on punched Gold and Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and some White Crinkled Seam Binding with some thread from the Fine Art Ribbon (retiring).
For the sentiment, I used the Slim Sayings stamp set. “Happy Birthday” seemed like the perfect sentiment to choose for this first Birthday Hop.
And I finished with some of the Genial Gems (retiring) to add some subtle gold sparkle.
Thanks for stopping in today!
