Happy Birthday Gorgeous - JAI #362

Hello Crafty Friends

I am doing it again....entering another challenge! It was no where as hard as I thought it was going to be, although I did not enter my photo very well I did manage to link everything properly, Yay! And, I got a special mention for my entry, not too mention some lovely comments. Today's card is for another Just Add Ink Challenge #362

 

This weeks challenge is a colour combination - Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Peakaboo Peach. I'm not a big user of Peakaboo Peach unless I am sponging so was a tad intimidated having to incorporate it with two of my favourite blues to make a card.

The Happy Birthday Thinlit is an easy go to for any birthday card. So this was a good starting point for me when thinking about what to create for this card.
 



 
The Bermuda Bay card front was stamped using small sentiments from the Tabs for Everything set, with Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
 
The Happy Birthday Thinlit was then used three times, once to cut the Bermuda Bay card front that had just been heat embossed, and once each in Peakaboo Peach and Pool Party card stock. Put the Pool Party die back into its hole and then layer the Peach and Bermuda over the top, adhering with Tombow.
 
Behind the die cut space I used strips of Pool Party ribbon to provide a bit of texture as it looked odd just plain. 


 

The Floral images from Birthday Blooms was stamped in Archival Black ink and coloured using Bermuda Bay for leaves and Peakaboo Peach for the flowers. The larger image that these pieces were fussy cut from can be used for another project.

The sentiment "forever young" and the border, both from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, was stamped in black and heat embossed with clear powder and adhered with foam strips. I placed a few Peakaboo Peach enamel dots in the corners for a little bit of extra Pop of that colour. 

Do you like my new photo background? Its two large tiles I picked up from a job site we worked on recently. 

Until next time, stay crafty

  2. Wow, Jackie, your card is fabulous. I especially love the way you've layered your die cut sentiment. The peach poking through gives it a great lift. I would never have guessed you were a little intimidated starting out. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink again this week. x
