Subtles for Eden's Garden and Shaded Summer

birthday card using stampin up Eden's Garden and Shaded Summer stamps dies

 Happy New Year everyone.  I hope it is a much better year for everyone in all respects. It would be so good if we get to see more of our family and friends and travel freely. 

Today for the Moving Along With The Times challenge and for the month of January our lovely team leader Diane has set the challenge for everyone to share cards for ladies and girls so a very easy challenge and we look forward to seeing all your designs.  

For my card I combined the Eden's Garden Suite with the Shaded Summer stamp set and whilst you may have fallen in love with Eden's Garden prior to Christmas using it for festive cards it is also a gorgeous choice for subtle colours and cards for the ladies and girls in ours lives.  

I chose the colour palette of Pool Party, Pale Papaya and Very Vanilla using my blending brushes to add very subtle colour to some parts of my design.  I also used alcohol markers, Stampin' Blends, to colour some basic pearls to tone in with my design.  By using second and third generation ink I added some soft background stamping to add depth and more interest to the die cuts.  

Don't forget to join our challenge over on the challenge blog throughout January and enjoy the last few days of the new year bank holidays.  

Keep safe all and keep stamping
