Hi Everyone! We are excited to welcome back Michelle Lupton!


 

Lay out the flowers on top of the leaves, then pick them all up with wide masking tape so they can be glued down together in the preferred places. 

 

 

 

 


 

I had originally wanted to make a very small card with the cupcake, but then I decided to add the candle, which made it too tall for the small card, so I added a red mat to the panel. I decided to round the corners and add the faux stitching just to add a little bit more detail. 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

I kept the floral die cut simple and white so it did not compete with the busy alcohol ink background. Fussy cut around embossed sentiment so it does not cover up too much of the background.

I color blended the background then splattered water droplets over it to add more visual interest.
After dry, I heat embossed flowers and leaves with white embossing powder.
The frame is popped up with foam tape.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

I wanted to create a background that had a quilted look, so I cut multiple strips using a long, stitched border die. You could just use your paper cutter to cut strips without the stitches. It’s a good way to use up those leftover scraps of paper!

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

I thought it would be fun to use a variety of sentiments from the February release to create a collage focal point. The fonts are so beautiful and varied which made a great background! The tag was popped up using foam tape.
