Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms Sympathy Card

Layered card with Garden Green card base; Cumber Crush framing; Garden green sponged over embossed Petals Burst on Whisper White; Affectionately Yours designer series paper; yellow ribbon; and coral rectangle with rose embossed with clear power over the coral ink.This sympathy card was designed using the Birthday Blooms stamp set by Stampin’ Up!.

My general modus operandi is to use monochromatic, subtle, and muted colors. However, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and accept the Color Throwdown #438 calling for coral, yellow, leaf green, and white. The basic format of the card was inspired by MoJo Monday #492.

When Photography Meets Stamping

I finally took the plunge and merged my love of shooting photographs with my love for stamping—a garden shot I took at Gibbs Gardens and the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Bundle by Stampin’ up!.

I’m looking forward to experimenting merging the two media some more in the near future
