Birthday Love and Hugs


This card features my new layering stamp set from Altnew – Springtime Azalea.

My stash of wonderful designer papers doesn’t seem to get used often, so when I saw The Flower Challenge was paper piecing, I decided it was time to use some.  I white heat embossed the outline flower on pink designer paper, which has a light floral print.  I then stamped the 4th detail image in Altnew in Coral Berry, the stamens in black ink and the small speckled image in Altnew Pink Diamond ink.

The leaves were white heat embossed on some multi-coloured green paper and fussy cut along with the flowers.

A piece of dark green card stock was cut using My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Basic Edges.

The white heat embossed sentiment came from Altnew’s Stunning Cosmos and  Sketchy Floral sets. from The flowers were arranged along the edge of the green card.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. This is a lovely card and the flowers are stamped beautifully. I really like how the pink flowers stand proud of the green background. I also like the added shadow under the flowers.


  2. Hello Hellen: I just love white embossing on flowers, it looks always so beautiful, just like in your card, love the pattern papers you use for this delicate blooms, placing them in that curved design truly showcases them beautifully.

  3. Oh how gorgeous is your card. Loving the beautiful blooms placed on the curve, really special. Thanks for linking up with Uniko.


  4. OMG this is so clever!! I would never think to stamp the image details on to patterned paper. I never do paper piecing so this was a challenge in itself but I’m so impressed with your design and ideas, I think I need to do it more often!! I love the simple, clean design and the curved black/white background is so stylish too. So glad you joined us at The Flower Challenge this month!!
