The card I have for you today features one of the first stamps I got from the annual catalog, "Vivid Vases", last May I think! I love it because it can be used alone or combined with another sentiment, like I did here:
I always need birthday cards, but sometimes I get bored with my "birthday" stamps, so it's fun to see what else I can use and then try to modify, adapt or add to it to make it a birthday card. I colored the vases and flowers with Blendabilities. I'm no expert, but they are fun to play with. I limited myself to 3 colors, Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight (except for the Old Olive leaves) . Right now, during Sale-A-Bration, you can get a set of Blendabilities for free with any $50 purchase. I started my collection with a couple flower colors and a green. That gave me plenty to play with at first, then I slowly added some more over the months. Each set comes with a light, medium and dark colored pen so you can get some shading effects in your coloring. Don't forget to purchase a Momento Black ink pad as well. That is what you need to stamp your image with and then when you color, your stamped image won't bleed!
Well, I'm headed back to my craft room to see what inspires me today!
Have a great one~~
