Stampin' Up! Reflection Technique Tip

It's Happy Birthday to our lovely neighbour Dawn today.  She loves her garden and so I've made a card using one of my favourite sets from the Stampin' Up! UK annual catalogue, From the Garden. 
It's such a cute set and perfect for anyone who enjoys their garden.  My friend Mikaela made a fab gift set for her friend's birthday recently and you can see it and find out more here on the Stampin' Up! website.  She bought the set especially to make a gift for her friend who's surname is Spice! 

You'll find that blackberry bliss and mint macaron work really well together from our Stampin'  Up! in colour ranges.  To give some depth to a card like this you can stamp twice in order that you can cut out the plant pots and add them over your original stamped image with stampin' dimensionals to give some depth.  I've also added some epoxy stickers to give more detail.  

I wanted to add the watering can from the stamp set, but wanted it the opposite way around so to do this I stamped the image onto my Stampin' Up Stamp-a-ma-jig imaging sheet and then carefully turned it over the add the ink that stays on the sheet to my card.  Hence you'll see it's a muted image but is just enough to be seen subtly on my card.

I've also stamped another sentiment inside the card which came from Butterfly Basics another current favourite of mine, along with the welly boots from the garden set.  
I've gift wrapped her present in the same colours so it makes a lovely combination.  

Happy Birthday Aunty Dawn as she's known in our house!
