Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop- Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

Hey there!  Welcome back to another Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog hop!  If you are hopping with us today then you may have arrived here from the fabulous Cathy Caines.  Isn't she amazing? As we are a group of 20 demonstrators from around the world- our blogs are written in many different languages.  Please be sure to use Google Translate so that you can follow along in your language.  You don't wanna miss out on any of the fabulous details!

For this hop, we are featuring the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  Let me start by saying this stamp set is absolutely AWESOME!   It's quickly becoming one of my favorite go to sets!  I love everything about it.

The stamp set itself is comprised of 32 photopolymer stamps.  There are several choices for sentiments, flowers, balloons, even a label that coordinates with the Classic Label Punch!

To create the card shown above- I began by adding some watercolor wash for the background.  I used two different colors for this process (Berry Burst and Powder Pink).  I then added some splatter with a Berry Burst Stampin' Write Marker and clear Wink of Stella.

Next, I inked up the larger flower outline image with Berry Burst and stamped it a few places on the watercolor card stock.  I then cut out 4 sets of leaves from the Lovely Laurel Thinlits Dies in Gold Glimmer Paper.

The addition of floral images that were fussy cut added extra dimension to the card.  
After a little debate on what else the card needed to be considered "finished"- I added some gorgeous new Glitter Enamel Dots in coordinating shades. They are the perfect finishing touch!

I hope you have enjoyed my project!  If you're ready to continue along on the hop, click the Artisan button below to head on over to the amazingly talented Holly Stene!
