Birthday Cards

Birthday Wishes | Gina K. Designs March 2022 Release

Hello there and happy Monday, I’m so glad you’re here!

The new Gina K. Designs release is live (see what’s new at the moment here) and I got to play with the new Beautiful Backyard stamp set which also has coordinating dies. This lovely new set was designed by Melanie Muenchinger.

For my simple card today, I started of by creating an ink-blended background. I used foam blending tools to blend Picked Raspberry, Saltwater Taffy, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock. When the panel was dry, I trimmed it to 4″ x 5.5″.

I stamped the leafy ground image and then stamped the floral image slightly above it, aligning the end of the flowers’ stem to one of the leafy stalks. Then, using a very fine black pen (I used a Copic Multiliner 0.03 pen), I extended the floral stem to meet with the leafy stalk so that it appears to be a single stamped image. Next, I stamped the hummingbird and the sentiment (the sentiment is from the older Delightful Blooms stamp set) and, when the ink was dry, I used foam tape to adhere the card front to a card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
