Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Art Gallery Happy Birthday

Hi Friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! This month we are sharing projects to wish a special person a Happy Birthday. These projects were created by talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we share projects with various design styles. You may have arrived from Sue Boerner's blog. What a wonderful birthday project!

My project features the lovely Art Gallery stamp set. Although there are coordinating Floral Gallery dies, my project uses just the stamps. The stamps alone create a "wow" birthday card!
Art Gallery stamps (158201) and Floral Gallery dies (154316)

The floral images in the Art Gallery stamp set are 2-step stamps. Meaning you stamp the base image then can add depth and contrast by stamping a separate image on top. Depending on the look you want to achieve, you can use the same ink or a darker ink color.

I stamped the highlights in a darker ink on top of the base ink, Flirty Flamingo; I added highlights with Calypso Coral, a darker ink, stamping full strength and by stamping off. I like the mixture. Which highlights do you prefer, full strength or stamped off? Please leave me a comment letting me know which you prefer. Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for hopping around the world with us. Keep hopping to see even more projects celebrating birthdays! Click on the Next Blog image below to hop over to Maureen Rauchfuss' blog to see her fabulous birthday project.
