This month we bring you birthday cards!  Of all the cards I send/make, by far birthday cards win!  I make a lot of birthday cards, but I also LOVE to send them!

For today’s card share, I started with a base of Basic Black cardstock.  I then cut out a circle with copy paper and put it in the middle of the card.  I stamped Versamark using the Falling Flowers Stamp Set in a variety of flowers all around the circle.  I removed the paper circle and spread white heat emboss powder over the flowers and heated them to emboss them.

Now the great thing about embellishments is that they can be used to cover up mistakes.  I originally planned for no ribbon.  However, I must not have stamped one of the flowers well enough in Versamark because it didn’t heat emboss completely.  No problem – I just added the white ribbon to cover over it.  Because the white ribbon was a little more formal than I liked – I added a Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine bow over it.

Enjoy!

If you’re swinging by from Amy’s blog – Welcome!

I am having so much fun playing with the new goodies from the new Annual Catalog!  My favorite Designer Series Paper has been English Gardens.  However, I must say that the new Blooms & Bliss DSP is by far my new favorite paper!!!  I love the pattern and the colors are so sweet and pretty together.

For today’s card share, I started with some Sweet Sugarplum.  I took one of the patterns from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and layered it over some Whisper White.  I then took another pattern from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and cut it in a 1′ strip and used the Triple Banner Punch to snip the ends.

Falling FLowers - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The sweet flowers and leaves comes from the Falling Flowers Bundle and were cut in Flirty Flamingo and Sahara Sand.  The sentiment comes from the Better Together Stamp Set and was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum.

Enjoy!
