Pink Birthday

Hello everyone!

Today I have my second DT post for Crafts-U-Love using the fabulous Pinkfresh Studio stamps. You can see the first card I made with these stamps here.

I really wanted to use the large ‘Happy’ stamp from the Word Series set – I love the pretty flower and leaf details and knew I had to include it as a focal point. As you can see, these sets also have a lot of smaller images and as I rarely use a lot of smaller stamps on one card, I thought it would be good to challenge myself to use them on my next card.

I remembered seeing a cute card that May Park created last year using small stamped images and used this as my inspiration. I loved the idea of colouring all those cute images, but felt that a monochromatic colour scheme would support my ‘Happy’ focal point.

I started by embossing the sentiment in gold embossing powder – the ‘birthday’ is from the Hero Arts Happy Birthday Messages set (which coincidentally is actually part of this week’s Limited Time Offers at Crafts-U-Love this week!).

I then blended a background using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink before randomly stamping the images using the same colour of regular distress ink.

Once I had decided on the design, this card came together really quickly and I enjoyed using those smaller images. Think I will definitely be reaching for smaller stamps more frequently in future!

Have a lovely weekend – thanks for stopping by!
