Springtime Foils Stylized Birthday Cards

It’s almost that time to send out birthday cards again and so today I’m going to share with you the #imbringingbirthdaysback card that I designed for April. I couldn’t resist using the Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper that is part of the Sale-a-bration choices since it is just so gorgeous!!!

Here is the card

And it was soooo easy to make! Each card looks a bit different since I used the flowers from the sheet of designer series paper that I cut out and simply colored them in with my Blends. Love the look!

This paper is also great for all kinds of techniques too! The options are endless since it has a glossy type finish and is a heavy card stock.

Check out the tutorial for this card below – and if you are wanting some of this paper for yourself, don’t delay since it is only available while Sale-a-bration last so there is only a few days left to year yours since Sale-a-bration ends March 31st at 11:50 pm (MT)

You’re Inspiring Easter Card Tutorial

I loved the daffodil images in the You’re Inspiring stamp set (145805/145808) as soon as I saw it, so was excited to sit down and play with it the other day. I came up with a bunch of cards quickly and wanted to share one with you today.

I designed this card for Easter. Seemed there were always these smiling little faces trying to pop up on a warm winter day – next to the snow in Wisconsin it was a cheerful pop of color. LOL!

I love the way the faux embossed Letter Press technique that I used for this card turned out using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder that is part of the Sale-a-bration Blooming Basket Bundle (147504/147505). I can’t wait to play more with this folder.

This month’s card is a monochromatic card made with the All Things Thanks stamp set, which is one of my favorites since it has a variety of fonts and sizes. It makes it a perfect set for all kinds of projects!

Team fun

Last week my team and I gathered for our monthly team meeting. I really enjoy this time sharing and stamping together, so today I thought I’d share some of the team swaps with you. I also love seeing the projects that everyone chooses to make for their swaps – it’s always fun to see what they create and share!

This first item is a beautiful box made with the Cake Soiree Suite of products  – and since the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Specialty Paper (145564) is a bit heavier, it’s perfect for this kind of thing.

Beautiful, right? Deborah used the Cake Soiree Bundle (145816/147627) to create the tag. And color coordination was made easy since the suite includes a coordinating  Card stock Pack (145565) that contains 3 colors from the Designer Series Paper.

Love the ribbon? Berry Burst (145489) is one of my favorite In Colors and this ribbon with it’s silver edge is perfect for this bundle!

What’s it filled with? I’m sure some treats, Deborah is the best at finding unique treat items for us. (I haven’t cracked it open yet since my husband is home. LOL!)

And here is another treat item that Sue made using the Perennial Birthday stamp set (145757/145760).

It has two pockets that she has tucked a Dark Chocolate Blueberry  Ghiradelli square into – can’t wait to try them!

And how about this cute little note card?

Heartfelt Bloom Thank You

Today’s card is one that I’ve created using the Heartfelt Bloom stamp set (147197/147202) that I earned for FREE during Sale-a-bration. I’ve made a bunch of these cards to send out as Thank You’s for February – so you might be receiving one soon in your mail box!

I just love the photo realistic image that this stamp produces and it’s great as a quick and easy focal point. Today’s card is done in Bermuda Bay and monochromatic, which I just love since it is a great way to build your stamping supplies if you are new to stamping.
