Social Stamping and Birthdays

I’m back stamping this week with my Social Stamping friends!! Our fearless leader, Kelly, is having a birthday this month and we are celebrating along with her!

I am trying to use some of the retiring stamp sets and I’m sad to see that Breathtaking Bouquet from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue isn’t carrying through. It’s such a pretty floral set.

So using my Stamp-a-ra-tus (in case I didn’t stamp it properly), I stamped up a piece of thick whisper white in Memento Black. I then grabbed a few Stampin’ Blends and coloured away. I used Granny Apple Green, So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo, Purple Posy and Rococo Rose.

Did you know that Stampin’ Up! have created a Share Sunshine digital stamp set featuring sentiments that are about our current isolation situation. You can check the whole set out here. All the proceeds of this digital set are going to either the World Health Organisation’s COVID- Solidarity Response Fund or the United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund. Once you purchase the set, you can download it straight away and start making cards to send.

I’ve used one of the birthday sentiments on my card.

I added a piece of Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon and using the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut out the sentiment. I coloured all the flowers with Wink of Stella for a bit of bling. Can you spot the bling?

I just love colouring with blends. I don’t do fancy, arty colouring but I’m happy with how it turns out.

Next up is the lovely Melissa. I can’t wait to see what she creates.

If you get lost on the hop, just head to Kelly’s post here which has a full list of everyone.

Happy Stamping

  1. Such a beautiful floral hug, Rebecca! I love the bright, cheerful colours you’ve used for your flowers and the sweet sentiment is perfect for these days in isolation. x

  2. Gorgeous colours and love the iso sentiment! I’m always sad about the retiring stamps, although I don’t have this one. Time to make room for some new treasures.

  3. So so so pretty and happy. Love it all, and love that you’ve paired it with the new PDF greetings!! So clever and glorious.
