Spring Floral Birthday Card by Tracey Sabella

Hi everyone! It's Tracey back to share a spring, floral birthday card featuring Donna's new Spellbinders® Flower Bouquet stamp and die set, scheduled for release next month. It was so much fun to color the stamped image with lovely spring colors using Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Pigment Powders. 

I have a dear friend who's birthday falls on St. Patrick's Day. Of course she adores green on her special day, so I've used a green backdrop for the lovely stamped image. 


Tips and Techniques
Donna's pigment powders can be mixed together to create a wide variety of colors. Add a little extra water to lighten and a bit more pigment powder to darken for shading. 

I used wine and pink for the large rose, gold for the yellow flowers and gold mixed with pink and wine for the darker yellow flower centers and buds.

The leaves are a blend of blue and yellow. 

I simply mixed the pigment powder into water to create these shimmering "paints." To keep the dry "paint" from rubbing off, I spritzed the finished image with a spray matt fixative. 

It was easy to line up and cut out the stamped image with the included die. So much easier than fussy cutting!!

I've stamped the birthday sentiment with Donna's Colorbox Stormy Mix'd Media Inx.

The Flower Bouquet set includes a die for these sweet flowers. They are cut from manilla and colored with pigment powder. The sequins are adhered with a Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®  DODZ™ - Mini.

The final die in this set is this sweet leafy flourish. I cut it from patterned paper and inked with several shades of Donna's Colorbox® Mix'd Media Inx.

The background script is stenciled with molding paste. Once dry, I spritzed with Clearsnap® River Mossy Smooch Spritz.

Thanks for dropping by today!!
