Are you celebrating a birthday today? You’re in for a virtual treat in this blog hop because we’re all here to wish you a happy birthday. Whether it’s your birthday or not, thank you for stopping by my blog today. I’m blog hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world to bring you some birthday cheer.
I figured I needed to bring in some gold for my celebration and as I hadn’t used the patterned masks for a while, I decided this was the project it was going to make an appearance on. At $10 for 4 masks, this is great value as you can use them in a variety of ways.
I used Shimmery White cardstock to heat emboss on as I like the lovely shimmer on it and also the beautiful smooth finish which is lovely to brayer on. Laying the mask over the cardstock, I applied Versamark all over the panel ensuring it was completely covered and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.
Using a sponge brayer, I applied Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Call me Clover inks to create the ombre effect over the entire panel. I used a kitchen towel to wipe back the excess ink which brings up the gold. The ribbon ribbon was attached under this panel using Tear n’ Tape. Then I mounted this with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto the card base.
I chose a Whisper White panel in the centre to soften all the green and gold. Embossing it with the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder added more texture and softness to the rich, gold background. The flowers are from the Botanical Prints Product Medley which is a fabulous product, containing everything you need to get creative.
Currently you are visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith of Stamping Flair based in Australia. All products and measurements used on my card are listed below. I hope I have inspired you today and maybe you’ll give this technique a try.

If you live in Australia and haven’t got a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love the opportunity to assist you.
