Happy Birthday, Maria!

What a joy it is working with this talented artist and her amazing stamps. And she is the sweetest boss ever, to boot!! As you hop from blog to blog you will see for yourself her awesome creations interpreted through our eyes!

This little blog hop was created just for her pleasure and delight, but we hope you'll join us as we wish Maria the happiest birthday ever!!


For my card I used:
Stamps: 3 Step Hydrangea, Multi Step Sunflowers (watering can), Simple Sentiments, and Multi Step Berries (sweet)
Papers: Pure Luxury White and Apple Green by Gina K Designs, lemonade by BasicGrey, Rich Razzleberry by Stampin' Up
Inks: Hydrangea - Layer 3 SU Rich Razzleberry stamped off once, Layer 4 SU Rich Razzleberry, Layer 2 SU Purely Pomegranate stamped off once, Layer 1 SU Mauve Mist, Leaves - Layer 1 SU Old Olive stamped off once, Layer 2 SU Old Olive, Layer 3 SU Always Artichoke, Watering Can, Layer 3 SU Basic Gray, Layer 4 Memento Tuxedo Black, Layer 2 SU Going Grey, Layer 1 SU Going Grey stamped off once
The ground was SU Creamy Caramel sponged over a mask.
Tools: Cuttlebug Victoria Embossing Folder

I stamped the flowers first. I masked them and added the leaves. I masked the leaves and added the watering can last.
