Happiest Birthday …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

 

I have birthday wishes for you today!  We are always looking for a pretty card to send to our BFF, so grab your BigShot and lets get stamping!

 

You will need the Apothecary Art  (128415 – W / 125527 – C) and the Loving Thoughts (128436 – W / 125845- C) stamp sets,  the Labels Collection Framelits (125598), the Adorning Accents Emboss Folder (125601) and Edgelits (125595).

 

This simple layout can be used with any Designer Series Paper and coordinating cardstocks.  You could use the NEW Gingham Garden with Pear Pizzazz or Afternoon Picnic with Coastal Cabana!

For the embellishments I used the flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (118309) and 3/8″ Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon.

Best Wishes …. for savings!

Hello Stampers ~

Today I am sharing two cards…  Stampin’ Up! is having a sale on some of our most popular stamp sets.  Two of mine, the “Petite Pairs” and “Sweet Essentials” are featured today!

First, is a card that I received as a “swap” from my Star’s team member, Cindy Schneider.   Our Star’s group meets once a month to stamp, swap, share ideas and business tips!  Not to mention … we have fun too.

To create this card, we embossed in white, the flower from ” Secret Garden” (pg. 94) and then sponged with “Pretty in Pink” ink.  Although that is one of the discontinued colors … there are plenty of pretty pinks you can use.  The “Oval Collection” framelits (129381 / pg. 186) was used to cut the flower pattern out and frame it with the scallop mat.

Oh  yes, I need to mention the contrasting cardstock is “Early Espresso”… I love the way espresso looks with the pastel colors (try it with Pool Party!)

The card was embellished with the butterflies from the “Beautiful Wings” Embosslit die… these dies emboss onto the butterfly and cut them out for us!  We also have buttons and heart embosslit dies, all are found on page 188 of the NEW Catalog.

Little stampin’ tip …

If your making a special card for a wedding or special friend, embellish the inside of the card too!

It’s doesn’t take much, but it will leave a lasting impression.
