So it’s may not really be YOUR Birthday but this Big New Stamp Set is super fabulous and most definitely something to get excited about!!!! What? You think the blog title was misleading? 🙂
The Big New Stamp Set is super fun! I got it because I loved the big greetings but when it arrived I went to my stamp room and just started playing. Ideas were flowing like crazy and I was giddy with excitement of the cards I was coming up with! I love when that happens! These two cards were created by stamping the candle in Stazon along the bottom and then adding the birthday greeting! Then I colored in the candles with my markers! I LOVE how you can get a masculine and feminine card out of the same style and the color combinations are endless! You can always match the color to the recipient’s favorite color or party theme color. How fabulous is that? Of course I’m loving Bermuda Bay right now and Melon Mambo is always my favorite. For the Melon Mambo card, I added a little 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon in Melon Mambo! Love that ribbon!
Here is another sample that I created on Whisper White cardstock and then added a little 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon in Pool Party!
This past weekend I did this card at a Stamp Party and everyone came up with different ideas for their card. Some stamped the same number of candles as the year the Birthday recipient was going to be, some stamped the candle on the envelope in the shape of the first letter of the recipient’s name (example: Harper was the Birthday Girl getting the card and so she stamped the candle 3 times to create an H on the envelope). It was so fun to see all of the creations everyone was coming up with!!!
