Morning Glory Birthday

It has been a while since I've been able to play along with The Flower Challenge.  I've had a lot going on in my life over the past six months, that I've felt like I've been meeting myself coming and going.  Now that it seems things are settling down, I'm wanting to get back to doing what I love, entering challenges.

Today's card features a new stamp set from Altenew.  It's Build-A-Flower:  Morning Glory and I do love it.  It's one of their layering stamps and I must admit that I have fallen in love with layered stamping.  After stamping the different layers of ink, I clear embossed the flowers to give them a bit of a shine.  It doesn't show up well in the photo but looks very pretty.  The dotted Vellum layer is another piece I had in my scrap stash and it made a perfect backdrop for the morning glories.  

Stamp Sets:  Build-A-Flower:  Morning Glory (Altenew); From All of Us - sentiment (Maymay Made It)
Inks:  Poppy Seed, Peapod, Lime Zest, Confetti Cake, Cookie Monster (Taylored Expressions); Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Night of Navy (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock:  Pool Party (Stampin' Up!); Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Dotted Vellum (Unknown)
Dies:  Build-A-Flower:  Morning Glory Dies (Altenew)
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder, Rhinestone Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!)

    1. Thanks, Aileen. I don't use vellum as often as I should. It gives such a great effect.

  3. Such a beautiful Morning Glory image, the colors are so true to life, fabulous design and lovely detail of the polka dot velum panel.
