Hello and welcome to another Social Stamping Blog Host! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators brought together by the very lovely and talented Kelly Kent! For the last six weeks, we have been sharing our creations as a means of bringing us together due to the world being in various stages of social distancing and isolation. You may have arrived here from seeing Nicole Wilson's fabulous creation, or if you are starting here please be sure to hop all the way around, you won't want to miss any of the fabulous projects everyone has to share.

The theme for today's hop is "Birthdays in Isolation" - Happy Birthday Kelly for the 15th!

With a little more time on my hands, I've been trying different techniques and colours - it has been lots of fun.

For the background I've stamped images from the "Free as a Bird" stamp set in white on white. I love this subtle look! Then I've added an ombre panel, starting with Melon Mambo at the bottom, Calypso Coral in the middle, Daffodil Delight at the top, and splashed with a little water.

To this I've added the gold embossed flower water-coloured with Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral to co-ordinate with the background.

Some water-coloured and gold foil die cut leaves, a bow and sequin add the finishing touches to my card.

Next up in today's hop is the talented Leonie Stuart, I'm sure she'll have something gorgeous to inspire us with.
