Happy Birthday in Greens

My Daughter’s Birthday was Saturday.  Her favorite color is bright neon green.  So I made her card using Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, and Call Me Clover.  She will enjoy the mix of the Stitched elements and the corrugated background.  This Color Combination is a little too bright for my taste, but she loved it! Choose your Birthday person’s favorite colors to make your version of this card.

4.  Cut out the largest Stitched Labels Framelit from Call Me Clover cardstock.

Happiest Birthday Flower DSP Card

I just LOVE the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP) with all the beautiful Flowers to add to my cards.  The piece I used came with the center blank to add a sentiment.  It was even already in the rectangle shape so I just had to cut it out.  If you just stamp on the front it is truly a quick and easy card.  If you mess up the stamping, you can easily stamp on cardstock and cut it out to add to your card front.

I am still working on updating my blog.  Please let me know if anything does not work correctly so I can fix it.  This may take a while. I guess it is taking me longer to get back to normal than I expected.

You can see three NEW blog post projects each week starting on Monday, September 4th.

SUPPLIES:
*Bundle:  Painted Harvest stamp set + Leaf Punch #146021  (Bundle available until January 2, 2018)

2.  Stamp on Whisper White card stock:
~Leaves:  Stamp 3 sets of leaves.  Solid stamp=Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Lined stamp=Wild Wasabi ink.
~words in Memento Black ink.  Leave enough room around the edges for the Framelit to cut it out.
~Flower:  Flower Center stamp:  Pacific Point ink.  Large flower stamp:  1st in Soft Sky ink.  2nd in Marina Mist ink-Rotate the stamp 180 degrees so you get a mor full looking flower.  Smaller flower stamp:  Pacific Point.

~Punch the Leaves with the Leaf Punch.
~Cut out your words with the Stitched Shapes Framelit that best fits.  I left space on the left side for the flower to overlap the die cut.
~Use scissors to fussy cut your flower.  It goes pretty quickly if you cut a fairly close circle around the outside of the petals.  Then you just need to cut inbetween the petals.
4.  Adhesive:
~Put a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional behind each of the leaves.
~Put either Mini or Regular Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the flower.
~Lay out everything where you want it.  Attach the leaves first, then the Stitched Framelit die cut, then the Flower.
