HAPPY BIRTHDAY GORGEOUS

Happy Monday to you and if it’s your birthday today – Happy Birthday to you!

I pulled out the Beautiful You stamp set for this card and used some “out of season” colours too.

The sketch came from Freshly Made Sketches and is meant to be as clean as possible and that is why I used the Beautiful You stamp set with its gorgeous images!

I also used the colours posted from the Colour Inspiration Challenge(Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Flirty Flamingo).

It was a little difficult to get all four colours in there but the Birthday Blossoms stamp set helped with that lovely spray of flowers in the corner.  So why the umbrella?  Well, I’m going with the idea that it’s a very sunny day and the umbrella provides a little shade.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Happy Birthday to you and Happy Stamping!

SUNSHINE AND A SUNFLOWER

The skies have been pretty clear and the sun has been shining brightly over the past few days.  The perfect weather for sunflowers to bloom.

Today’s card has just one bright sunflower from the Autumn Harvest stamp set and a fun technique too!  This stamp set will be available for you to purchase on September 1, 2017 from the Holiday Catalogue.

I used the sketch layout from CAS(E) this sketch as my starting point and just went from there.

That faux brick wall behind the sunflower was made using our new Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  After I had applied the paste, I set the card aside to dry for a while while I stamped and fussy-cut out the sunflower and leaf.  They looked a little lonely on the card so adding the stem piece from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits was the perfect way to go.

Here’s the sketch just in case you’d like to give this layout a try yourself.

SAYING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE MAN

Do you struggle with ideas for cards for the man in your life?  I do too but after some serious creating, came up with this card for a good friend of ours.

I used Guy Greetings and am very happy with the way it all turned out.  The background piece sets the stage and I thought that layering a piece of Copper Trim over the Burlap Ribbon would add that extra touch of pop and secured it with Mini Glue Dots(103683).  TIP:  I used our Tear & Tape Adhesive to add the burlap piece to the background.  It secures it all nicely!

Here’s the list of all the products that I used.

SIXTEEN IS AN AWESOME NUMBER

Sixteen is an awesome number and that is because my eldest granddaughter is turning 16 tomorrow!  So I went to work to create this fun card for her.

I thought that that gem design was the perfect background for our lovely girl and also used it on the inside for a little more effect!

PLAYING WITH A 3D BIRTHDAY GREETING

Today’s card features the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die done up in 3D.

I found a card using this technique on Pinterest(see my page) and just had to Case it!  The effect was achieved by stamping the big blossom from the Birthday Blooms stamp set twice – once onto the background paper of Whisper White cardstock and then again onto a scrap piece.  I placed the scrap piece over top of the stamped image to get an idea of where the thinlit greeting should lie.

Then, it was just a matter of cutting out the Birthday greeting and popping it up onto the card front using tiny pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The picture is angled so you can get a better idea of the placement of the greeting.

The stamped image was coloured “direct to stamp” using our Stampin’ Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Sweet Sugarplum.

Here’s the list of products used for this card.

Have a perfectly wonderful day and Happy Stamping.

A ROSE IS A ROSE

To very loosely quote Shakespeare, “A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet”.  Today’s Rose was created by using the Graceful Garden stamp set and the “direct to stamp” technique.

This technique involves using our Stampin’ Write Markers to add colour directly to the stamp and then stamping the image onto your cardstock.  In this case I used the colours that Create with Connie and Mary posted on their Facebook page – Berry Burst, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz.  Then I very carefully cut that beautiful rose out with paper snips and used small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up onto the card front.

The birthday greeting has a beautiful font and it was cut out using our new Pretty Label Punch.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ORCHID

Hello out there.  I’m starting the week off with a soft and pretty birthday greeting with the Climbing Orchid Bundle.  Can’t seem to stop playing with this set, lol.

I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to create this background and used the same technique as this card.

To create the perfectly simple birthday card, you need the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  So pretty and adding that pretty orchid tops it off beautifully.

A NARWHALE KIND OF BIRTHDAY

He, he, I’m stamping with this very cute Quirky Critters stamp set again and adding a cool background as well.

Isn’t it cute!  To get that cool background, I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, ink and a sponge.  Just layer the first design over top of your paper, sponge the colour of choice and then change the mask to a different background and sponge a different colour over it.  Pretty cool don’t you think?

Adding those pretty Glitter Enamel Dots finished this card off nicely.  The soft green matches the green in the background.
