Simon Says Stamp | Floral Pattern Birthday Card. Video

Hello and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! I think we can all agree – one can never have too many spare Birthday cards on hand. For today’s video I decided to stamp a simple, one layer floral Birthday card.

The design of this card can be adapted to many other occasions as it is not using any birthday specific imagery, but rather only flowers. It can be a thank you, a miss you, a paper hug and many more.

CARD DETAILS

I started by stamping skinny strip sentiment somewhat in the center of my panel in black ink. This message, Birthday Wishes, comes from the Simple Sentiment 2 stamp set by Cathy Z. Next, I made a mental note to leave the sides of my white panel blank, I didn’t want to mask anything as sometimes with masking tape it can rip the paper and damage your project, so I just envisioned about 1/4” border on each side being free from any stamping. I also didn’t mask the border because I wanted the images to not be chopped off in the middle, I wanted each stamped image to be fully stamped on the paper.

To create the floral background I pulled images from the So Loved stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. This is a large 6×8” set that features a solid and corresponding outline images. I picked a handful of solid images skipping the outline layers and started stamping.

I used the following colors:

When stamping patterns like this, patterns consisting of a number of images or various size, it’s important to go from large to small. Don’t start with a small image because you might not have room to fit the largest one later. Start with the biggest flower and the biggest leaf and work your way down to the smaller size images.

There’s also a little dot stamp in this stamp set and I took advantage of it by stamping it in several colors of ink filling in the gaps on the card. My stamping was done on a separate panel, instead of a card base as that’s how I prefer to create. Once it was all finished I adhered it onto an A2 white side folding card base.

To add shading I used my Polychromos pencils by Faber Castell and added just a hint of details to some of the stamped images. I used: #123 Fuchsia, #129 Pink Madder Lake, #132 Light Flesh,#131 Medium Flesh, #108 Dark Cadmium Yellow, #111 Cadmium Orange, #168 Earth Green Yellowish ad finally #154 Light Cobalt Turquoise.

I hope you guys will give this idea a try! Have fun stamping!
