Bron’s 60th Birthday Blog Hop - #3 Inky Blues


Hello and welcome to Bron’s 60th Birthday Blog Hop no 3.

This months theme is Inky Blues as Blue is Bronwyn’s favourite colour.

For my card I have teamed the beautiful Cottage Rose Bundle with the fun Stylish Shapes Dies.

Can you guess which blue ink I have chosen to create my card with?

Starry Sky - it is such a rich and beautiful blue! 

  1. Start with a Starry Sky card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
  2. Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 10cm x 14.3cm
  3. Stamp the flowers and leaves from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Versamark™ Ink all over the piece of Basic White card stock. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and set with the heat tool. Then use Starry Sky ink and a Blending Brush to colour the whole piece of Basic White card stock. Glue this to the card front
  4. Stamp the sentiment in Starry Sky ink on a piece of Basic White card stock. Die cut using a stitched circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies
  5. Die cut one banner in Basic White card stock from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Cut this in half and secure to both to the back of the sentiment circle
  6. Die cut two flowers and one leaf from the Cottage Flowers Dies in Basic White card stock
  7. Secure the leaf and flower to the bottom left of the card front then secure the sentiment layer to the card front using Dimensionals
