A New Stamp Set

Earlier this month I received a new stamp set "Beautiful Day" from Altenew. I started playing with this set a few days ago. I finally got my birthday card finished using this set along with numerous other sets from my collection.

After practicing on several flowers this is the final card.

Because the flowers are so large, I made my card 5 1/2 x 5 1/2-inches. I found a 12 x 12-inch sheet of paper that was the perfect color to go with my Pool Party card. I used the masking technique on the two pink flowers when adding the leaves. The center flower was stamped on a separate piece of card stock and cut out.

This flower has several parts and each was stamped using a different color ink. The outlines were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black. The pink flowers were stamped using SU Blushing Bride and Primrose Petals ink.The center flower was stamped using SU Soft Sky and Pool Party inks. The leaves were stamped with Memento New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves colors.

The verse was from Our Daily Bread Designs set called "Happy Birthday". This was the first set I purchased from ODBD.  The inside verse was from Unity Stamps set "Butterflies and Sunbeams".

I love creating flowers so I expect that this will be one of my favorite sets. I hope to acquire some more sets in the near future.

Have a wonderful day.
