Stampin’ Blends Meets Birthday Blooms

Well today’s card combines at least two of my favorite things… heat embossing and the new Stampin’ Blends. I ended up making three of these Birthday Blooms cards, I was having so much fun!

The flower is beautiful in any color but I especially like the fall Pumpkin Pie color.

Design Notes for Birthday Blooms Card:

The pretty border on the right hand side was made with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and some Copper Foil. Don’t you love the look?

Generally, when using alcohol markers like Stamin’ Blends you would use Memento Ink. That way the color will not bleed from the alcohol markers. However, for this card, I decided to use heat embossing to outline the flower parts. The petals were colored with Pumpkin Pie Light and then highlighted with the dark Pumpkin Pie Blends. I used Old Olive for the leaves and just a touch of Smoky Slate in the middle of the flower.
