#imbringingbirthdaysback in March with Thoughtful Blooms

It’s March already, can you believe it? So I’ve been working on my family and friend’s birthday cards that I’ll be sending out.

I’m really loving the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and coordinating punch that you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration so that’s where I started. And since we’ve had a lot of over cast days from all the rain I wanted something bright and cheerful too, so here is what I came up with.

So what do you think? Fit the bill? I just love the In Color Lovely Lipstick!

I also wanted a birthday sentiment and this set didn’t have one, so I reached for the fun Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set on my shelf. This set is a great choice since it has tons of birthday sentiments for both inside and out.

I love teaming up the stamps to create a perfect combination for the person I’m sending it to.

As always here is a video tutorial for my monthly birthday card for you.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Timeless Tulips

It’s raining again here in North Georgia and so my crafting has been reflecting my dreams of spring being right around the corner!

Today’s project uses the lovely spring Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper, one of our Coordination Products that are available for a limited time. You can see all of them HERE.

I love the soft subtle colors for spring and the fact that the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper coordinates with our punches is an added bonus. I always love another way to use a punch. How about you?

I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial for you and a video which includes some quick tips for getting the most from this paper.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Playful Penguins

I love these little penguins that you can find in the Playful Penguin stamp set, but then I haven’t met a penguin I don’t like since I was a young adult. LOL!

Today’s card is one that I created for my December birthdays

I’ve used the sentiment from the set for the outside greeting, but chose the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set for the inside since it has tons of choices. And since I’m thinking snow today, I reached for my Pretty Peacock and Pool Party Classic Inks to use – they worked great with the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper gingham pattern!

Here is a quick video tutorial for you

#imbringingbirthdaysback & it’s a Piece of Cake

Today’s card is one that I made for this month’s birthday cards. I enjoy sending happy mail to my friends and family each month. I know that it’s a great feeling to go to the mail box and get something besides circulars and bills. How about you?

The Piece of Cake stamp set also has a coordinating Cake Builder Punch, but I didn’t use it for this card. Instead I chose to use my Stamparatus since it made stamping this project soooo easy.

Today’s card is the one I designed for my November Birthday cards that I’ll be sending out today. This birthday card uses a fun technique that is one of my favorites to create fall colored leaves. It is called the Baby Wipe Technique.

This card layout is also one of my favorites since it is clean and simple but still packs a wow. And with the Baby Wipe Technique everyone will wonder how you created leaves with fall color too.

#imbringingbirthdaysback – Garden Impressions Birthday Card Tutorial

Have you seen the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper yet it’s part of our July Buy 3 Get 1 Free Promotion? If you haven’t you’ll want to check it out since it is packed full of patterns that are great for making lots of cards since it comes in a 6×6 stack.

If your birthday is in July your card is already in the mail with a little special something just for you. But if not I thought I’d share this quick and simple card that highlights our Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.

For this month’s cards I’ve used different patterns with the same colors and basic layout. I chose the So Saffron and Shaded Spruce since these two colors were prominent a lot of the papers so they were easy to make multiples.

It made this paper  a natural choice when I needed to make lots of birthday cards for my #imbringingbackbirthdaysback. Here is what I came up with –  multiple patterns with the same basic layout – which I just love since they look different enough I could send them to family too.

I’ve created a quick tutorial for you so you can make some too!

More One for All birthday fun

#Imbringingbirthdaysback this month with the One for All stamp set – I loved stamping yesterday’s card so much during our team shoe box swap that I went to work creating and came up with this.

Done in Lovely Lipstick it’s bright and cheerful and perfect for the young and the young of heart! If you have a June birthday you may have already received yours!

Did you know that monochromatic cards are really popular right now? And they are great for the new stamper too, since all you need are a limited number of products. For the long time crafter they are also great since you can make an endless variety of cards simply by changing out the one color! Easily customization for your recipient’s favorite color. And with all the new colors to choose from this year due to the color revamp a great way to start collection some of the new colors too!

I have a tutorial for you too –

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.
