Birthday Blooms and a Giveaway...

Hi Everyone, I have a lot to share with you today so let's get started. How did your day go today? Mine was a busy in a "I need to get my computer to do what I want" sort of way. Someday I will get this thing upgraded. Until then I just keep plugging away at it. 

Today's card is one from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I started with a base of Whisper White Thick cardstock cut at 5.5 x 8.5 and scored at 4.25. I then stamped the rose image in Basic Black ink all over the card base. On a scrap piece of Whisper White I stamped the rose image also in Basic Black and then colored it in using an Aqua Pen and the ink from the lid of my ink pads. Colors used were Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide and Daffodil Delight. I did lay down my first layer of ink on the rose, let it dry some and laid down more to get the shaded areas. 

I cut a nice area around the whisper white and used it to layer on the Berry Burst card stock (I didn't measure it I just cut and eyeballed it) . The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White in Berry Burst ink and the punched with a 1 3/8 punch and the Berry Burst layer was punched with a 1 3/4 circle punch, then popped in place with a Stampin' Dimensional. 

This card is one that I am doing at my April Card Buffet class on April 14th. So if you are local and would like to come make this card you could choose it as one of your selections. 

Here's a look at all the cards that are being offered for the class. So How does this work? Well I present the Menu of 10 cards and for a $10 fee you can select which 5 of the above cards to come and make. You email me your choices by April 11th and when you attend I have all the pieces cut and ready for you to sit down, stamp and assemble. It's a lot of fun and a lot of great friendships are made. You can go at your pace, So you aren't rushed through it are stuck behind someone slower. It's a great time to just get some stamping done and relax. Or come stamp and leave lol whatever works with your schedule.
