Social Stamping - Birthdays in Isolation

Image may contain: text

Hello and welcome! We are hopping over at Social Stamping and this week the lovely Kelly has set the theme as "Birthdays in Isolation". The timing couldn't be better with Stampin Up releasing a digital download stamp for all your Isolation needs!

With Social distancing restrictions currently across every state and territory in Australia and indeed around the world, birthdays are being celebrated differently than we have ever known them. We can't  give a birthday hug let alone have a special party. This is Kelly's birthday month - and today also happens to be one of lovely sister's birthdays in NZ too so this theme has come just in time to help us all celebrate whilst social distancing.

You may have arrived here from the lovely Sheila Pybus blog and her gorgeous project and you can also hop around all the different posts by clicking on the Next button on the bottom of each blog.

For my card this week I used DSP and images from the All Dressed Up bundle to compliment the sentiment which is from the Share Sunshine Digital Download. 

The flowers are coloured using Blends and then die cut - I don't mind fussy cutting but it is much quicker to build a spray of florals if you don't need to πŸ˜€The Sentiment and backing panel are both cut with the same Stitched Rectangle die and slight trimming of the stitching enables the main panel and not the backing to be the focus.

Thanks so much for popping by and Next you're off to see the stunning project that Andrea Sargent has made! Enjoy your hopping around blog land.😊

  3. Beautiful card. Love the elements you have put together.

  4. I love all the bright colours in this dsp and the sentiment is perfect!

  5. Love these cards, Jan. The paper is fabulous just on its own but I love how you have combined it with the other elements and sentiments x

  6. That dsp is just so pretty!! Love your cards.

  7. These are fabulous and gorgeous colours. I have barely used this set and I must have missed the flowers all together! (do I have too many stamp sets or not enough time?) Love love love the floral posies.

  8. Well that's a bit pretty Jan. I am so glad you are able to get back to creating. I love seeing what you make and have missed it (as I am sure you have too!). x

  9. Oooo super pretty! I have a real soft spot for this DSP and stamp set. Lovely colouring on the flowers. Isn't that download sentiment just the best?!

  10. I forget those flowers have dies EVERY TIME! You think I'd learn! Or I'm a sucker for fussy cutting! I love the colour matching on this card Jan - it's beautiful and sassy all at the same time! Kelly x
