STAMPlorations Inspiration


Today is a special STAMPlorations Inspiration Post - it's the 300th Inspiration Post! What a great way to celebrate the end of the year. And because of this special occasion, we have an extra special prize to be won - by commenting on the STAMPlorations Inspiration Post and the Design Team posts (including mine) you are entering the draw to win a $25 prize code to the STAMPlorations store. And with this card, I want to thank you all for stopping by to see my cards this year and wish you all a much improved 2021!

I created a colourful Birthday card to celebrate this special occasion. I started by stamping the beautiful florals from Sweetly in Black Versamark onto watercolour card and coloured them with Gansai Tambi watercolours. I also splattered some watercolour onto the background to create a bit of added interest. Next, I stamped the butterfly from the same stamp set onto vellum, heat embossed in gold and fussy cut it. Last, I added a die-cut sentiment using Everyday Sentiments and added some washi tape to the top and bottom of the card. 

Stamps: STAMPlorations Sweetly

Gorgeous, the washi tape (I initially thought you had painted the wonky stripes) is perfect for this beautifully watercolored design!
