Beauty Abounds - Thanks For That Thing You Did

I love what I did here... using up spare paper parts for a busy but easy thank you card.



Take some of your left over patterned paper and spread them out to see what goes with what. Sometimes the simplest thing is right in front of you and makes the decision so much easier.

I took the stitched shapes circle and randomly stamped a few stamps using coordinating ink in the Designer Series Paper to call those colors out of the background.

Then I finished off the card with a bow, well.. actually its really a knot.. tied around another knot.

I hope you like this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!'

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin'!

Happy Birthday - Detailed with Love Masculine card

This is a very simple but pretty card for a masculine birthday. 




It highlights the new 2018-2020 In-color Blueberry Bushel, which I love because it's a very vibrant color. I used Blueberry Bushel cardstock and some of the coordinating DSP for the background, accented with a couple of strips of Balmy Blue.

In this photo I used Clear Faceted Gems in the stitched oval, but you could use any of Stampin'Up! embellishments that you choose.

It's a pretty versatile birthday card. You could change up the colors to make it for anyone! Poppy Parade or Melon Mambo would also make a stunning feminine card as well.

I hope you like this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!".

Thank you for stopping by today and Happy Stampin!

Happy Birthday - Blow Out The Candles

This card is super simple to make. I used some Share What You Love and Regals DSP to highlight the birthday banner. To make the candy cane look of the striped DSP, just cut it on an angle!




I stamped the balloon onto the So Saffron cardstock using the same color ink on the balloon stamp and used some of the colors in the Share What You Love paper to make the cake.

The Happy Birthday banner is Old Olive. I inked the stamp and just stamped it three times to make the stamp look like its fading. I love that our ink is actually three different colors depending on how many times you "stamp off."

I hope you like this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"
