Power of Hope – Happy Birthday

The past little holiday we took has had a serious impact on my stamping rhythm.  A few challenges…

This week over at the Global Design Project (#310), the challenge is a Sketch and for my theme, I selected the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge (#284) – People. 

Here is the result:

POWER OF HOPE – CELEBRATE WITH FLOWERS – GDP310 – SUOC284

Steps:

  • Designer Series Paper: All retired patterns; Garden ImpressionsKimono and Pink Flowers, Bright’s Family 2020/2021 CollectionUmbrella and Peony GardenVertical Strip.
  • The Japanese Girl, from the retired Power of Hope stamp set was stamped three times.  Once in Versamark ink on to the Yellow/Navy floral pattern and heat-set with White Embossing Powder and then on to the Daffodil Delight Cross Hatch pattern with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and finally on to a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock also with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Face/Neck/Hair/Dress Collar were colored with Stampin’ Blends: Dark Petal Pink, Light Smoky Slate and Dark Night of Navy. The Kimono, Umbrella and Head were then fussy cut and reassembled. 
  • The Pink Flowers were fussy cut directly from the patterned paper.
  • The Vertical Strip is cut (1⅜” x 5⅜”).
  • The sentiment, Happy Birthday, from the Celebrate with Flowers stamp set was stamped in Night of Navy ink on the left side of the Basic White cardstock Panel (4⅛” x 5⅜”) cardstock.
  • All of the elements were adhered to a Night of Navy card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to match the sketch.

A stroll through a Japanese Garden, such a nice way to celebrate a birthday.
