Kelly's Stamping Friends Birthday blog hop

No photo description available.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Kelly's Stamping Friends Birthday blog hop!!! And a big happy birthday to Kelly!!!! You may have arrived from Jan's Blog or you may be just starting, either way, there's 23 blogs to visit! 

I decided to use the Swirly Birds Stamp Set and coordinating framelits - they've gather a little dust as I haven't used them for a while. I confess, I had a little search around on the internet for ideas, and I was inspired by a card by Jackie Bolhuis.

I ended up creating 3 cards of the same basic layout, but they show a beginner, casual and avid level of the design.

The Beginner Card -  single layer card using the stamping off technique off for lighter shade of the Fresh Fig Ink for the flower base, the swirly part of the flower was Fresh Fig ink, and the leaves are Tranquil Tide ink.

The Casual Card - same technique for flowers, just everything has been stamped on a whisper white layer of card and tranquil tide card which were cut with the rectangle framelits.

The Avid Card - I've added extra layers of tranquil tide & whisper white card for sentiment, used a framelit to cut extra detail for flowers, and added a little bling with the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.

Which one is your favourite?

Well, once again happy birthday Kelly! Thank you for arranging your Birthday Blog Hop and to continue on the hop, please visit Melissa next.
