Sweet Birthday


MIM this week is hosted by Danielle Flanders,
and she masterfully blends her inks over embossing.
You can see the video on Nichole's blog here:

Ink blending allows such rich depth of color.
Danielle makes it even richer with her embossed script stamps.


It's been awhile since I've inked up Nostalgic Notions. I love the vintage feel, and 
already had the scallop edge frame cut. 
I used this go-to card pattern from Danielle 
that came with Stamp-a-Faire 2015.


'Happy' and 'birthday' from One Big Happy.
PTI Inks: Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Pure Poppy, Spring Rain,  Bright Buttercup
I love this technique, know I'll use it often!

  3. What a lovely card Nancy!! Your ink blending is just beautiful and this whole card just shouts HAPPY!! The only thing I don't like about your card is that I never thought I needed the Nostalgic Notions kit, and seeing cards like this makes me realize how wrong I was...grrrr! Beautiful, beautiful card!! :0)
