Happy Birthday

Ok I have a confession, I literally bought the Date Me (SS-0494) stamp set so that I could make the card that is on page 109 from the 2017 – 2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog.  I know, I know, I know but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.  LOL   [I do have to say that I love that our catalog is packed not only with great products but also awesome project ideas].

Here is my version – I improvised a little bit.

Happy Birthday Date Me 2

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) I stamped some of the images in Fresh Forest (IP-0013) and Sweet Berry (IP-0029) ink.  This panel was adhered to a Sweet Berry (CS-0034) panel before being adhered to a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped the Happy in Bubble Gum (IP-0058) and the Birthday in Sweet Berry (IP-0029) ink and flagged the end.  I cut a strip of Fresh Forest (CS-0011) card stock and flagged the end as well.  Using the Border Basics Die (DI-0144), I cut a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) and popped it up on the card front with Foam Squares ( AD-0085).  Adhered the Fresh Forest and Whip Cream pieces using Foam Squares (AD-0085) as well.

Here are the measurements:
Whip Cream = 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4 for the card base, 5 x 3 3/4 for the top card panel, and then scrap for the flagged piece
Sweet Berry = 5 1/4 x 4
Fresh Forest = scrap for the flagged piece
Bubble Gum = scrap for Border Basics Dies

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Birthday | Mystic Romance

The Mystic Romance collection is just gorgeous.  I love everything!! There is so much color and detail in the Mystic Romance Prints (PP-0047).  I am so sad to see that it is on the retirement list.

Check out this quick card using one of the prints from the Mystic Romance paper pack as the focal for the card.

Happy Birthday Mystic Romance
There is so much detail on this paper!!!


On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock I stamped the sentiment from the Date Me (SS-0494) stamp set.  The Happy was stamped in Cranberry Bliss (IP-0049) and the Birthday was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041).  [the nice thing about this stamp set is that they are separate to you can easily stamp them in different colors and I just love the font].

I adhered the stamped Whip Cream piece to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) panel.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) I adhered a piece from the Mystic Romance Prints (PP-0047).  [so many beautiful designs to choose from].  I adhered Green Olive Grosgrain Ribbon (AC-0248) in the middle and then adhered the panel to a Whip Cream card base.

For the inside I used a sentiment from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set and stamped it in Black Licorice.
