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)

Beautiful You Birthdays

#imbringingbirthdaysback this month with Beautiful You.

I have really been enjoying this set and so I wanted to use it to create this month’s birthday cards that I was sending out. (They will be a couple of days late going out, but I’m hoping that those who receive these cards will think it was worth the wait. LOL!)

I’ve used one of our 2015 In Colors, Delightful Dijon to create this card and teamed it up with Basic Gray for a rich and bold look.

Did you know that this color will be retiring soon? Yep, it’s that time of you – our retirement list will be announced on April 10th!!! Yikes – already! AND our 2015 In Color Collection will be on it!

So you’ll want to be sure to complete your collection of supplies before April 10th, since the In Colors are typically the first things to go and they go quickly! Don’t get caught without your favorite colors, reinkers and accessories. Order yours before April 10th so you’re not disappointed.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with 200 cards!

Want to be one of those who receive a hand stamped birthday card from me? It’s simple just send an email to me at StampwithJini@gmail.com and give me the following information.

Name

Address

Date of birth

(I just need the month and day since we’re all 29. LOL! But you can include the year if you want to. US only)

Oh, and if you’ve already celebrated your birthday this year, no worries I’ll be sending a full 12 months of cards out! So that’s it – email me your birthday and then just sit back and wait for your card to arrive in the mail!

#imbringingbirthdaysback

Monday was my birthday and so I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful cards I received from my stamping friends – they are all such wonderful cards! Isn’t the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement great?

This first card was sent to me by Leah and uses the Moroccan Designer Series Paper along with the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-a-bration.

This next card is from Shirley and she used the Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Builder Thinlits Dies. She choose my favorite colors for this card – wonder is she knew?

And here is a lovely card from Hope that uses our Endless Wishes Stamp set

And a sweet card from Cindy using our Cool Treat stamp set – love the cherries!

And finally this technique card from Sue – striking!

It was a wonderful birthday – a beautiful spring day and I didn’t have to cook! since I got to try a new restaurant I’ve been wanting to try forever, Fenders Diner in Cornelia, with my honey. What could be a better way to celebrate?

On a personal note I want to thank you for being patient with me while I deal with technical problems. Seems like technology is not on my side lately and working against me lately. Things might still be a bit speratic while I fix the rest of the bugs. So thank you for your patience.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Seaside Shore

Today’s card is one that I created for my July birthdays and my #imbringingbirthdaysback campaign. I think its bright and colorful and I love the way it turned out.

Seaside Shore #imbringingbirthdaysback July 2016

This card uses one of my favorite sets from the NEW 2016 Annual Catalog, Seaside Shore. It is full of wonderful seaside images. You can find this set along with a wonderful suite of products on page 92 & 93.

Check out the Perfect White Accents I used for the bubbles – I simply removed the white backing so they were clear and used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere. Cool, right? and it’s another fun way to use this accessory.

Shannon West is part of the Stampin’ Up! home office team. And in November at OnStage shared with us her families’ personal birthday tradition of celebrating with one big bash – which I just loved, so when she launched her #imbringingbirthdaysback last month I couldn’t resist joining in the fun and jumping on board, and now you can too! Since this was one of my New Years resolutions for 2016 any how I’m just expanding it a bit by including you!

Here is a quick video of Shannon explaining what #imbringingbirthdaysback is all about.
