Stampin' Up "Beautiful Friendship" Birthday Card

Here's a card I've made, using a Stampin' Up stamp set that's not seen the light of day for a very long time.

For the roses and leaves in the middle of the card, I have used the Stampin' Up stamp set called "Beautiful Friendship" with Distress Marker Pens using "Peeled Paint" and Worn Lipstick" pens and "Worn Lipstick" and "Picked Raspberry" Distress Oxide Inks. 

I gave the background a wash of "Bundled Sage" Distress Oxide Inks.  I then used the "Micro Squares Stencil" by Funky Fossil Designs, with "Prickly Pear" and "Leaf Green" Distress Oxide Inks.

The birthday greeting is by Lawn Fawn, part of their "Simply Sentiments" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink. 

I inked the edge of the card using the same "Twilight" ink then mounted the card on to dark blue card and then on to a white card blank.  Finally, adding some dots of white Ranger Enamel Accents.


  1. Beautiful roses and shown off so well with the sage green and added Micro Squares stencilling Sam, and love the upper case sentiment across the flowers which looks great. x
