Stampin' Up! Southern Serenade Birthday Card

Hello peaches! Now I know those of you who follow me regularly will have noticed a bit of a change in my posting schedule. I'm going to be trying something a little different. Don't worry! I won't be posting any less. If nothing else, you'll be occasionally seeing more posts from me. I just think that for the time being, Tuesdays and Thursdays will be more ideal. I'll keep you posted if anything changes, but my hope is that this will be my regular posting schedule from here on out. You can also find more shared ideas, tips, and techniques over on my Instagram page (@lalipeach) as well as my Pinterest board (search Lauren Alarid). I hope you will check them out! Now on to today's crafty inspiration!

For today's card I am featuring the Southern Serenade Stamp Set. I have used this stamp set in so many different ways and have gotten different, unique results every time, so I can say with confidence that it is a great and versatile set.

I started with a Thick Whisper White Cardstock for my base. Then I used a piece of the polka dot patterned paper from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP). I layered on another striped piece from this same set of DSP. Next, I stamped the main floral image from the set in Basic Black Archival Ink since I planned to (you guessed it) watercolor it. I used my Aqua Painter and both Melon Mambo Ink and Powder Pink Ink to color the flowers. I started with the lighter pink ink and while the flowers will still a bit damp, I added a touch of Melon Mambo to the center of each one so that the moisture would allow the brighter pink to spread organically. I layered the flowers on, along with my sentiment and tucked a metallic floral embellishment from the Petal Passion Embellishments behind my flowers and sentiment. To finish off my card, I added some Silver Mini Sequin Trim.

I hope you have enjoyed today's card! Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you next post!
