Penned & Painted Birthday Card

We are T-minus 5 days from Christmas.  I hope you’re finding peace and joy in this season!

With so much Christmas card making, my poor Birthday card stack is hurting, so I’m bringing you a simple but cheerful birthday card , one that can easily and quickly be replicated.

My card uses Bermuda Bay as its base on which I layered Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, and more Whisper White.


On the top Whisper White, I used the Penned & Painted Stamp Set and stamped the bigger flower in Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz, and Bermuda Bay.

Pause for a second – Since the Holiday Catalog came out, I’ve rarely used stamps from the Annual Catalog, this one included.  It felt so good to use this beautiful flower stamp set again!


My sentiment comes from the Better Together Stamp Set.  I first stamped (Elegant Eggplant) it right on to the Whisper White, but I really felt the card needed some depth.  I decided to stamp it again, this time fussy cutting it out and adhering it using dimensionals over a Bermuda Bay banner.  Lastly, I added a few enamel dots around the card.

  1. That’s awesome Jaimie! I love those colors and your design is just perfect with the sketch…it does feel pretty good to pull out those Annual Catalog sets and play a bit now that the mad Christmas card making rush is over. 🙂

  2. I bought this set because of a pretty card you created once with it, and now love seeing it again! I agree, it seems like all of the “older” stamps have been left idle for so long! I love the fact that you cut out around the sentiment to make it stand out. Great idea!!

  3. What a fun card! I love the flowers…makes me feel like I’m somewhere warm and tropical! Thanks for playing along at HSS!

  4. I love this color pairing – Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz are perfect together. What a wonderful card. Thanks for playing along with this CAS(E) this Sketch challenge!
