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!

Overall, it’s just a pretty sweet card! Looking closely at it, you can see where I outlined the letter in a Stardust Gelly Roll pen. Those are wonderful!! Add such a nice touch of glimmer.

Challenge #291

Optional Technique : Weaving

This one was a real challenge for me!

But, I persevered and came up with this –

I am so pleased with the way this card turned out. The layout just had me soo stumped!

I kept playing around with these papers and colors……whew.

Anchors Away Birthday, TSOT#281

Happy Tuesday! Time for Try Stampin’ Or Not On Tuesday challenges.

This week we have a nice layout to play around with –

Challenge # 281. Optional Theme : Anchors Away

I thought this layout was difficult at first until I pulled out my papers – it came together quite easily.

I was even able to play along with the theme this time too!

This DSP really helped with the theme to make a nice birthday card. I liked that one of the coordinating patterns was light enough to stamp on.

Silver Foil is always hard to photograph but my stars are just a shinning here.

This is a fun sketch to try. Head over to Try Stampin’ Or Not On Tuesday and see what the other designers created. Play along with us on Facebook too!
