Always Birthday

Here is another Birthday card using Pear Pizzazz for the card base and pieces from Greenhouse Gala DSP (#117167) for the background.  I simply stamped the bird image on Whisper White card stock in Baja Breeze, and the berry image in Chocolate Chip.  I added some sponging around the edges with Chocolate Chip and then mounted it on a piece of Chocolate Chip CS.  I used stampin' dimensional's  to put this piece on the card.  I used a piece of 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz (#119265) to accessorize and hide the seam in the DSP.  The greeting is from the Sincere Salutations (#115068) set again and is stamped with Chocolate Chip ink.

Special Birthday

So, I know a couple special little girls who will be turning 5 in October, so I thought I would get a head start on some Birthday cards.  This is a super simple and cute card.  I used the Play Date DSP (#117168) and Sincere Salutations stamp set for the greeting. (#115068)  You will also need a 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch (# 119854) and 1-3/8" Circle Punch (#119860).  I used Regal Rose for the card base and embellished the card with 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon (#117292) and 1/8" Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon (#119254).

Christmas Joy

Here is another Christmas card using the Season of Joy (#110384) stamp set.  This card is on a Cherry Cobbler base with a piece of the Deck the Halls DSP (#120810) our of the Holiday Mini catalog.  The image is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock and I sponged the edges a bit with the Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I accessorized the card with Victoria 5/8" crochet trim (#118481) and a piece of 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Early Espresso (#119961), cut in half lengthwise with a few strands unraveled off the edge.  And to finish the card I placed an Antique Brad (#117273) on the "o" in Joy.  Hope you enjoy!

Rustic Christmas

OK, so this is a pretty simple card that I threw together a couple weeks ago.  I used the Season of Joy stamp set on page 33 of the IBC, I love this set, it is simple and elegant.  My paper choices were Kraft for the base, a piece of Deck the Halls DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog on page 18 for the background, and early espresso to mat the tree image which I stamped in always artichoke.  I sponged the edges of the DSP and Kraft to get a more rustic look and embellished the card with hemp twine and a rhinestone brad.  Enjoy!
