#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.

#simplestamping with Painted Poppy

I’ve loving all you can do with the Painted Poppies stamp set and today I’ve teamed it up with the So Sentimental Stamp set for a #simplestamping project that is my March thank you card.

This card is #simplestamping since it only requires 2 ink pads and card stock. It’s also a great for new stampers since you can combine the sentiment set with the image set of your choice.

I’ve used one of my favorite colors – Coastal Cabana to create these wonderful bright poppies. And since poppies come in all kinds of colors you could change it up with your own color choice.

Here is a quick video for you so you can see just how simple this card is to make!

Lovely Day Note Card Tutorial

The Lovely Day stamp set is found in the February Paper Pumpkin Kit and is just beautiful. So I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and start creating. Here is what I came up with.

I reached for my Note Cards & Envelopes (144236) since not only is this a great size, but it is wonderful choice since you get both the card base and envelopes in one package at a great price, making it a economical choice. I’ve colored it with our Stampin’ Blends. I love this coloring choice since it gives us such vivid colors and they really are sooo easy to work with. And coloring is relaxing too which is an added bonus, right?

Here is a quick video showing you how I created this card.

Another Little Ladybug Tutorial

It’s time for another card tutorial! I created this little card for my Team Winter Retreat Shoe Box Swap a couple of weeks ago and set it aside to share with you.

Unfortunately, it got buried on my desk. I tend to set things in a safe place so that I can find them later. And then well, can’t. lol, Do you ever have that problem? Well you’re in luck since today I found the card and I’m sharing this project along with some of the other Shoe Box Swaps that I made too.

Here is a quick video tutorial for you and the PDF with a complete supply list.
