In colour

As promised here is a run down of the techniques and products used to create Sundays cards.

Scroll to the bottom for a full list of supplies used.

I was so excited to get the sketched birthday stamp set, and I was even more excited when I got it free as part of my stampin start rewards. The reward system for new starters is really great and there is no pressure to hit targets that aren't comfortable for you. So laid back I didn't know I had a free stamp set until the ordering system told me!

I am also in love with the Blackberry Bliss In-Colour so I played with that ink first. I stamped ballons on to a piece of Moonlight designer series paper (DSP) then coloured them in with the Hello Honey stamin' write marker. Then I inked the edges of the DSP and stamped the Happy Birthday on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut it out, inked the edges and stuck it down using Stampin Dimensionals.

My second card used the same idea but I used the Petite Petals stamp set, and after i had coloured the stamped images in I used the coordinating Petite Petals punch to cut them out. These coordinating punches make life so easy and give you a great consistent effect . I also stamped the invitation stamp onto Whisper White and inked the edges with Blackberry Bliss before attaching them all to another piece of the DSP using Stampin Dimensionals. 

For my third card i wanted to experiment with the DSP a little more so made a small tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. I added a small amount of the Stitched Satin Ribbon in Lost Lagoon and used the same colour along with the Hello Honey to make flowers using the Petite Petals stamp set and punch. What is really great is that all these colours are true matches, I don't need to worry about shades not working. Yet again i stamped a sentiment on Whisper White and attached using Stampin Dimensionals.

These three cards were very easy to make and I love how different they all turned out. I hope you all enjoyed the walkthrough.
