Welcome to The Creation Station Blog Hop! I am so thrilled to welcome you to The Creativity Cave! Thank you so much for stopping by! Whether this is your first stop, or you've just arrived from the amazing Kimberly's Blog, I am just so happy to have you here!
This month our theme is Birthday Bonanza! And while I was tempted to use some of our Balloon Stamp sets, I decided to go the softer side of birthdays with this BEAUTIFUL card using the new set, Big on Birthdays. I had posted a card last week (that I LOVED, btw, here) but I just could not get over the "at least you're still pretty" image--I LOVE the image but kinda hate the saying. I mean what are they getting at?!?!?! Soooooo, I decided I had to find a way to use that image without seeing those words, and I am pretty impressed with the results of that effort:
Gather Your supplies:
- 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" Crumb Cake
- approx 2 1/2 x 2 7/8" Old Olive
- approx 2 5/8 x 3" pear pizzazz
- Scraps of Whisper White, Bermuda Bay and Vellum Cardstock
- Flower Medallion, Petite Petal, Tree Builder, Triple Banner Punches
- Whisper White Ink
- Watercolor pencils (white)
- glue dots
- fast fuse
You can see how awesome the "center" of my flower looks sketched in. I love that detail!
I added the "bow" image in whisper white ink at the top and bottom--I know these are supposed to be just on the top of the image (like the bow of a package), but I thought they looked kinda cool as brackets, too!
Check out this GORGEOUS card! I will be demonstrating this (plus more using the watercolor pencils) on my FB Live that will be occuring every Monday at 10am Central time.
