Kelly’s Birthday Blog Hop

Good Afternoon … it’s that time of year again … Kelly’s Birthday! What better way to celebrate than to participate in Kelly’s Birthday Blog Hop!

Kelly’s Birthday Blog Hop

Kelly is a sweet friend that I’ve met through Stampin’ Up! She’s a Demonstrator in Western Australia and always love catching up with her at Stampin’ Up! Events.

Funnily enough the theme for today’s Blog Hop is “Birthdays”!

My card today uses the lovely Climbing Roses Stamp Set and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

I loved making this card. THe roses are Copper Embossed on Shimmery White then watercolored with our Classic Inks and an Aqua Painter.

I love the Dimension you can get with frames using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I slipped a section of the Rose image behind the frame on the top left and popped the whole image at the bottom right. It gives the card more dimension with an inside/outside type frame.

My card is finished off by adding the sentiment and a sweet little Silver Bakers Twine bow and some Basic Adhesive-backed sequins.

Let’s go hopping …

  1. […] Here’s another card I made using the Floating Frame Technique […]

  2. Lou Kitzelman says:

    Now isn’t that just the prettiest! x

  3. This is gorgeous Leonie! I love the effect of your floating frame over the DSP layer and how much a feature that is. And the copper embossed florals are such a lovely way to add bling too!

    1. thanks you so much Jan .. such a simple technique and adds so much depth.

  4. This is beautiful Leonie, that copper embossing is so pretty and the frame made with those stitched rectangular dies is the perfect addition. Love it and thank you for sharing.

  5. Denise Buetler says:

    Love the beautiful card you’ve created, Leonie. You’re right, putting the top roses under the frame really gives it a 3-D effect. So clever! Hope I may use this idea x

    1. thank you Denise … of course you can use the idea … no point keeping these things to ourselves 😉

  6. Michelle Strazds says:

  11. I love all the layering with the rectangles, but really you had me at copper embossing – love love love!

    1. naw thanks so much Shannon .. that Copper Embossing really lifts a card and it’s got such a different effect than regular gold or silver 😉
