Big on Birthdays

The Big on Birthdays stamp set has some fun ways to send birthday wishes and the stamps have fairly large print which I love. 

I chose to pair this saying with the Delicate Details (SAB 2017) stamp set and some Cupcakes and Carousels designer series paper. 

The card started with a Very Vanilla card base before I added the images and I colored in the flowers with So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Old Olive ink.  A few random enamel shapes finished it off.

For You Carton

I ordered some of these cute mini egg cartons months ago and haven't played with them yet so I decided it was about time!  This one is decorated using the Stylish stems framelits and Special Reason stamp set.

I cut out a flower using the Glimmer paper pack (SAB 2017) and added a full flower underneath before sponging some Sweet Sugarplum ink on the Whisper White.

The designer series paper is from the Succulent Garden collection and I added a lace doily, button and linen thread to finish off the top.

Just Like You

I always like to have a few gift card holders on hand just in case I need something quick.  This one is really simple to put together and would work great for kids with the Party Animal designer series paper as the focus. 

I started with a piece of 12" x 4 1/4" of designer series paper and scored it on the long side at 4 and 8".  Then I cut the angle off one of the sides and used tear and tape adhesive to attach it to make the pocket.

Next, I added more tear and tape adhesive around the outside and added my cotton ribbon before decorating the front.

Here't to a Great...

Last week I shared a couple cards where I had punched out a circle and placed something behind it, well, I must have had that on the brain for awhile because here is one more!  I used the same punch - the 2 1/2" circle punch and placed some Sending Love glassine sheets behind it.

The trim on the Pool Party is stamped with the Delicate Details stamp set (SAB 2017) and the sentiment is from Better Together.  I added an In color doily and some Sending love embellishments to complete the card.

Sugarplum Butterfly

I wanted to pair the butterflies in the Falling in Love designer series paper with the butterflies in the Watercolor Wings stamp set and chose to do it with the Custom Tee stamp set and matching T-shirt framelits. 

I added some Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper from the Sale-a-bration glimmer paper packet and some kraft rope trim that I unraveled.

Floral Birthday

When I first saw the Floral boutique designer series paper in the catalog I wasn't sure I wanted to use it, I am not sure if it is because there aren't more colors in it or if it was for another reason.  Eventually I tried it out though because I really love the coordinating stamp set called Floral Phrases and now I am not sure why I didn't like it before, LOL!  I combined both the designer series paper and the stamp set on the birthday card below.

On the background I again used the Delicate Details (SAB 2017) stamp set and then added some flowers from the Floral Phrases set on the die cut label.  The sentiment is from the retired stamp set called Tin of Cards.

Plum and Slate

I don't know if I have used the colors on this card in combination before, but I really like how they work together.  Smoky Slate and Perfect Plum were the colors I added to the Whisper White card base. 

Then I stamped the Happy on another piece of Whisper White and colored in the space around the words with a Smoky Slate marker and popped it up on the card base.

Finally, I added part of a paper doily and some Pompom trim for a little texture.
