Happy Blooming Birthday

So, it’s time for a new two-week challenge from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday –

Challenge #321. Optional Theme : As the Garden Grows

This is a great theme and layout as things are blooming everywhere! So, why not a blooming birthday card??

Isn’t this just the prettiest? I really had forgotten about this stamp set and framelits pair. Sadly, it’s about to retire from Stampin’ Up. I decided I needed to play with it a few more times before it goes to sit on the shelf so more!

The flower is actually two flowers layered together with a dimensional in between them. Of course, a few more behind the flowers and designer series paper layer too! Adds so much drama!

The embossed panel added just enough interest for the card. Makes it a little more dressy!

I created a fabulous card with the layout and the added theme. I hope to have inspired you! Please leave me a nice comment.

You can see the other Design Team cards for inspiration here on our blog . You can link up a card there or on our Facebook page as well! Looking forward to seeing you!

Hearts a Flutter

Stampin’ and chalkboard. Seems to be the newest trend these days.

I decided to add a few things related to this, Hearts a Flutter Framelits and Valentine’ Day. And, this is my take on combining these.

This by no means is a new design or new concept, I’ve seen lots of this style on the inter-web. I designed this over a month ago. It was one of my January Card Buffet choices. A popular one, because I ran out of card packs.

Thanks for stopping by. Gettin’ your cards ready for Valentine’s Day? Maybe this will inspire you!!

Happy Stampin’
