Celebrating You

Hello, Tallie here, and the card I bring you today is based around three colours: black, red and green. One of my friends just got a new job and these are the colours of her new company.

On some Bristol Smooth card stock, I stamped out several different flowers and leaves from the Altenew Hello Sunshine stamp set using some Versafine Black Onyx Ink. I pulled out some of my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in shades of red and blueish green, and used a waterbrush to blend out the colour. Once dry, I cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I cut out a white circle using the second largest MFT Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Dienamics and stamped out the 'Let's Celebrate You' sentiment from the Concord & 9th Birthday Stacks set. I love the mix of fonts in the sentiment. I coloured in the open letters with two matching markers.

I then took out a top-folding white A6 cardbase and started to arrange my coloured flowers popping out from the foam mounted sentiment, using a rectangle of red cardstock to help distinguish them from the background. I felt that the white background panel was too stark, so I took some Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and lightly blended it on from the centre. I also added a few splatters for more interest.

I love how these two sets mix and match, giving the perfect opportunity to celebrate my friend for a change!

Thanks for reading, catch you next week.




  1. Can you tell me a really good rubber stamp and papercraft store in Sydney? I live in Burwood.

  2. Hi Andrea. I assuming you think from our name that we are based in Seven Hills New South Wales, but we are actually an online store in Sheffield in the UK. So unfortunately we can't help with any Australian info but we do ship to Australia and have a few customers there already Tara x
