Happy Birthday You Really Are the Best - In Bloom Stamp Set and Pierced Blooms Dies - #GDP305 & Just Add Ink #568

Hello again! Today's card is one I have entered into the Global Design Project #GDP305 Colour Challenge as well as the Just Add Ink #568 Sketch Challenge. The Global Design Project challenge this week was to use Pale Papaya, Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz. I coordinated it with the sketch from the Just Add Ink challenge. Using a sketch challenge with the colour challenge was helpful to give me design parameters for the card and helped save creative time.

For this card I used the In Bloom Stamp Set with the coordinating Pierced Blooms Dies, along with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!®.


- Use a piece of Basic White A4 card, cut in half and folded. Using another piece of Basic White card, apply Balmy Blue ink with Blending Brushes and then emboss using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Wrap and attach a piece of Bakers Twine around the Basic White card and then attach to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

- Use the Pierced Blooms Dies to cut flowers, leaves and a bow from Basic White card. Apply Pear Pizzaz and Pale Papaya ink to various leaves and flowers using the Blending Brushes. Arrange the flowers and leaves and then attach to the card using Liquid Glue and Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach the die cut bow to the Twine.

- Stamp a sentiment from the In Bloom stamp set using Versamark ink onto Basic Black card and heat emboss using White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Attach to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add some Pale Papaya In Colour Jewels to the small flowers on the card.
