Reverse Words – Birthday

Today’s card uses one of the NEW Sale-a-bration items:  Reverse Words Stamp Set!!  It comes with two phrases:  Hooray and Cheers.  I’m using Hooray today.

I’m also using an idea from Brian King – stamping more words within the smudge – which I thought adds a great touch!

My card uses Watermelon Wonder cardstock as its base.  I took a pattern from the Carried Away DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.


I took a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on some Watermelon Wonder cardstock and then stamped the “Hooray” in Mint Macaron ink.  I then stamped the “It’s Your Day” in Night of Navy ink from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set.


Lastly I created two balloons using Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder cardstock and the Balloon Bouquet Punch (smaller of the two balloons).  I tied some Night of Navy Baker’s Twine to the bottom of each balloon and then knotted the string underneath the sentiment.  I adhered the one balloon using a Stampin’ Dimensional.




Honestly I’m in complete denial that we’re even talking about retiring colors, but as only a good demonstrator would do, I feel I need to give you plenty of time to mourn, eh, I mean, stock up on these colors before they’re going.  Pretty soon these five amazing colors will be discontinued (sniff, sniff).  Sale-a-bration is the perfect time to stock up on them – while you still can.

  1. So cute Jaimie! Perfect choice for the background paper and the twine with the balloons is fantastic! I’m sad about the In Colors retiring too…but I’m sure that we’ll fall in love with the new colors quickly too! 🙂
