A 'Global' Happy Birthday - Hand Stamped Sentiments #322

Over the last few days I have been playing with the new "Still Scenes" stamp set which is about to be released when the Holiday catalogue debutes in one day on September 4.  All cards I made with this set were Christmas cards, but I could not see why a globe card could not be for other occasions as well. 

So, I made a 'globe' birthday card for the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments

The base card of Seaside Spray is layered with Whisper White, and then Rococco Rose DSP.    The DSP is die cut using the Snowglobe scene die and this opening was used as a template to draw a faint pencil line on the Whisper White layer to outline the 'globe' area .

Three flowers and  small butterfly were stamped in Seaside Spray, Blackberry Bliss and Rococco Rose.  The petals of the flowers were curled after which Shimmer Crystal Effects and Stampin' Glitter was applied.  The butterfly was layered onto another butterfly and Crystal Effects applied as well.  Small pearls coloured with Blackberry bliss Stampin' blends were placed in the center of each flower.

Before adding the flower and butterfly to the penciled area, a 'dot' stamp from 'Still Scenes' was stamped multiple times in Rococco Rose to create some background interest, and the branch from 'Butterfly Wishes' was stamped across the middle.  The flowers and butterflies were then added.  Small pearls were randomly added to the background.

The globe and DSP was added to the card front.  The base of the globe, die cut in Smoky Slate was adhered below the globe using dimensionals. A bow made with Whisper White ribbon coloured with a Seaside Spray blendability was added to the base of the globe.

Extra butterflies punched with the Butterfly Duet punch in Seaside Spray were added to the card front and on top of the globe.

The sentiment, stamped in Rococco Rose, was added dangling from the globe
