Season of Chic for Bron's Birthday Bash 3


Welcome to the third of Bronwyn's Birthday Bash Blog Hops.

We're a group of stamping friends that are celebrating Bron's 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes! 

Bronwyn Eastley of Addinktive Designs does the MOST amazing 3D creations and is one lovely lady. I was delighted to be invited to join Bronwyn's big birthday celebrations. 

The theme for this month is 'Inky Blues' which makes me happy because I love 'inky' and I love 'blue'.

I think that the Texture Chic suite is rapidly becoming my favourite from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue. There's images for each season and the seashells are just right for summer.

I've used Balmy Blue, Pacific Point and Starry Sky to create a faux strip of torn paper to which I've added some stamped images. 

Then, I've added a small cluster of die cut elements and the sentiment: isn't it a great greeting?

You can see how I made this card (and how I fixed an unexpected botch up) in this video tutorial.

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Lou Kitzelman from Australia.
