Happy Birthday To You Champagne

The Happy Birthday To You stamp set is another one you can earn FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration.  I didn’t think I needed this set until I saw the coordinating dies you can purchase.  That cake stand is so pretty!  And, there are two dies for the flowers….. one cuts out the cake with the flowers, and the other cuts out only the flowers, so you can layer them or use them separately.

I also used one of the frames from the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folders set.  It is spritzed with a mixture of alcohol and Champagne Shimmer paint to give it a beautiful sparkle.  The cake stand is cut from Champagne Foil, the Petal Pink Ribbon has a Champagne edge, and the flowers are painted with Wink of Stella after coloring, giving this card a lot of sparkle!  If you can’t see it, trust me, it’s there!

Here’s the fixin’s:

Lift Me Up Anniversary Card

A very good friend asked me to make a card he could give his wife for their Anniversary.  LaAnna is a stamper, so I think he might have been afraid to give her a “store bought” card.

First I chose the sentiment, Marriage is a Journey.  The inside says Good Thing You Get to Bring Your Best Friend Along.  I wanted something that would depict a journey, and decided on the hot air balloons.  I wanted to add a little something special, so I wove satin ribbon through some of the spaces in the balloon die cut.

Stamps:  Lift Me Up, Flourishing Phrases

Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White

Ink:  Pool Party, Bermuda Bay

Dies: Up and Away Thinlits Dies

Other:  1/4” Pool Party Satin Ribbon (vintage), Bermuda Bay sequins (vintage)

Banners for You Anniversary

A good friend of mine recently asked me to create an Anniversary card for his wife.  She’s one of my best friends and stamping buddies, so he didn’t want to give her a store-bought card.  She’s also partial to blue, so I wanted to create something special for her.

I thought two hearts tied together would make a nice card, so I created this one.

Stamps:  Banners for You, Gorgeous Grunge (retired)

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Marina Mist

Ink:  Marina Mist, Basic Black

Dies:  Bunch of Banners Framelits, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits

Other:  Basic Rhinestones, Black Solid Bakers Twine, Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (retired)

My friend really liked the card!  I hope you to, too!
