Birthday Wishes With Stencil


What lovely weather we have been having.  Each day you can notice one more leaf unfurling, one more flower blooming, one more bird's just magical!  Ahhhhh!

Today's card will be entered into Challenges at Stamp TV, Stencil Me Pretty, Simon Says Wednesday, Inspiration Color Swatch and Mod Squad, Mix It Up (to use stamps from at least 2 different sets).

Simon Says Wednesday Color Swatch

 I used 2 stamp sets from Gina K Designs, Signs Of Spring and Stamp It Big!  The fern stencil was placed on a center panel, trimmed with border stamps and covered with Vellum to soften the look.  Inks in Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party,Tempting Turquoise, and Tuxedo Black.  

I love that cluster of leaves, I use it a lot for backgrounds and accents.  Here it is stamped in Pink Pirouette on white and blue card stock.  It also looks so lovely stamped in Antique Linen Distress Ink.  A bit of pink and white gingham ribbon.  Sentiment panel popped up on 3D dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by.


  1. It's slowly warning up here too thank God! The next three days is going to be in the 80's ! Ahhh Your card sure is gorgeous as usual ! Love the front panel it looks like stained glass with the vellum in front of it. And the leaves gives it a soft look. Have a Blessed day!

  2. I love the use of vellum on this delightful card. Big Bold birthday wishes is perfect for it too. You are so right about the leaves, one of the nice background stamps and can be used as focal image too.

  3. Wow, great take on all three challenges. Love your stenciling and those colors. And that gingham ribbon is so cute - wonderful layers too. Lots going on but it all works so well together, especially that vellum.

  4. Beautiful card. You sure nailed it.

  5. I expected. I really like how you softened the stencil with the vellum.

  6. Gorgeous, beautiful card, love all how you've used vellum for the stencil
    Thank you for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

  7. Beautiful! I love your pink leaves behind your greeting and the darker leaves on the background panel. Really ties together well!
