Wisteria birthday

Card: pool party, wisteria wonder, whisper white
Ink: pool party, wisteria wonder
Stamp set(s): just believe, bliss, curly cute

Accessories: vellum paper, beautiful wings embosslet, big shot, sponge, rhinestones

Over at JAI this week is a colour challenge. I only had two of the colours they suggested, but they work so well together! For this card, I stamped the main image from the just believe stamp set and added a torn corner with some vellum paper behind stamped in wisteria wonder to show up on the pool party. It's so cool you can do some much with vellum paper - it looks fantastic torn, scrunched, stamped, empbossed... Then I added some subtle texture with stamping around the edges of the whisper white. A couple of butterflies that are on dimensionals to create a 3D effect and some rhinestones once again lift the artwork. I have stamped an inside panel - I can't get away from adding something extra inside these days! - to make a vintage, subtle birthday card.


  1. Gorgeous card, the colours work beautifully together.

  2. Love the little butterflies!!! Thanks for playing at JAI this week even though you only had a few colours :)

  3. I love the combination of stamps you used on your card, Anna. Thanks for playing along with us at JAI! Remember, if you don't have the 'exact' colours suggested, you can use colours that are close :)

  4. Beautiful card Anna - love the background stamping behind your torn corner. it's challenges like this that I ended up buying pretty much one of everything so I could enter! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!
