Funky Fossil Designs "Happiness Blooms" Birthday Card

I've had a few days away again, so I of course couldn't wait to get back to my craft desk, especially as my order from Funky Fossil Designs was waiting for me to play with.   

I joined the Funky Fossil Design Team when it first started in 2019. I love their products, especially the stencils, which were my first FF love.  

Since 2022 I have been an "Honourary DT Member" which allows me to go away without feeling any pressure to keep up with releases.  I guess it's the best of both worlds for me.  

When the "Happiness Blooms" stamp set was released, I knew that I had to order it as I loved the clean look of the design.  I wasn't disappointed in using it either.  I love it.

I stamped the main image and sentiment (both part of the Happiness Blooms" stamp set) using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

I used three colours of Derwent Inktense Pencils to colour the image:  Golden Yellow, Cadmium Orange and Spring Green.  Applied using a paint brush and building up the strength of colours.  I finished off using a 2B Pencil and a white gel pen to add some tone too.


  1. Love the simplicity of the stamped image and your choice of colours

  2. This is a pretty floral and I love the circular shape, and your colouring is beautiful Sam..two sweet little butterflies and a coordinating sentiment to finish it too. x

  3. Beautiful floral design Sam, the colours and style is inspiring x
