Watercolor Wings Birthday

Watercolor Wings Birthday Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I took a little blog break last week after welcoming our first grandchild and attending our oldest daughter’s wedding.   What a whirlwind two weeks!  And this weekend, we got to spend the entire weekend with our new grandson.  What an absolute JOY! But I’m back today with a pretty birthday card featuring an old favorite stamp set, Watercolor Wings.  When this set was first introduced, it was extremely popular.  I think it’s still a great set with a lot more life left in it.

Here’s the details:

  • I really like this color combination of Pear Pizzazz and Sweet Sugarplum.  The patterns are from the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper.
  • The sentiment is from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set.

  • Look how pretty the new Pear Pizzazz 3/8″ shimmer ribbon is!
  • I stamped the butterfly twice on vellum using Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry and Fresh Fig ink.  After stamping, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  It really gives it such a pretty shine.
  • I layered the two butterflies using the new mini Stampin Dimensionals on the body.  These little guys come in so handy…no more cutting the dimensionals to fit small spaces.
  • A few Glitter Enamel Dots are the perfect finishing touch.  I have a real problem when it comes to adding these type of embellishments.  Mine never quite look as random as I would like and then I end up pulling off some of the paper when I try to re-position them.  Anyone else have this issue…..?

  • The inside sentiment is also from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous.  I love the fonts and the sentiments in this set and have used them a lot.

  • A little Designer Series Paper on the envelope flap pulls the whole card together.

I promise I won’t post too many pictures of the new love of my life but here he is at one week old.

I’ll post a picture of our daughter’s wedding tomorrow.  I’m not sure this summer could get any better than this!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Take care,
