"Happy Birthday with Flowers in a Jar" Card and "Bonjour" A Paris Theme Card

I have seen a lovely Photo inspiration at The Card Concept. And I cant stand to used my Paper Smooches stamp set named Cristal Clear. I really love the result I made with this Jar stamp.

First I masked the Jar and sponged some Distress Ink on the card base. I also stamped the woodgrain under the Jar to mimic the Photo inspiration, its as Table I mean.

Then I use my tiny flower puncher and punched some white flowers. Arranged the flowers on the top of the Jar and also stamped the Butterfly from Hero Arts. I colored with yellow and orange Akashiya SAI watercolor marker. I gave some white dots on the butterfly.

For accent I used my white pen to gave a bit shine on the Bottle Jar. The doily under the Jar is Hero Arts old stamp collection. The HAPPY Dies is Paper Smooches, and the BIRTHDAY Dies is Create A Smile.

  8. That jar of flowers is really pretty but what adds to this card is your great work on the white space surrounding the image. It really is a well designed card, I like how this scene covers the whole card front.
    Your Paris card is so cute and stylish, love the clouds and how they don't extend over the strip in the middle. Super colors, eye catching!
