Build A Birthday meets Wild About Flowers

A Touch Of Spring 

When making this card it was a really miserable day and I needed to do something light an cheery.

I love Perfect Plum but very rarely use it so decided that was going to be my main colour. The wild about flowers came to mind as the one stamp in this set reminds me a of a Thistle (I'm not very good with flowers, so sorry if it's wrong). But if it's right please let me know!

Once I'd finished it I was quite pleased.  I'm also trying to use up some of my old stash so hence the ribbon.

The materials used are:

Card Stock: perfect plum, whisper white
Ink: perfect plum, wild wasabi
Stamp Sets: build a birthday, wild about flowers
Embossing Folders: softly falling
Framelits: layering ovals
Ribbon: grosgrain stitched (retired)
Accessories: wink of stella

Will be back again soon with more cards

Grateful Bunch meets Rose Wonder

For Someone Special
I am still trying to use DSP and ribbon as I have a cupboard full and don't usually tend to go for it, but one of my NEW YEAR resolutions was to try, so here goes.  It's handy to have old DSP as a lot of the main colours are not included in up to date DSP, they tend to be the new colours.
This card was made for someone I've known now for a few years and really enjoy being with so wanted a nice bright happy card, as she brightens my life up when I see her.

The materials used are:
Card Stock: pear pizzazz, pool party, whisper white
Card Base: NSU
DSP: frosty white (retired), sycamore street (retired)
Ink: pool party, rich razzleberry, tangerine tango, versa mark
Stamp Sets: grateful bunch, rose wonder
Embossing Powder: pool party (retired)
Punches: blossom bunch
Framelits: secret garden (retired)
Thinlits: rose garden
Ribbon: ruffled (retired)
Accessories: basic pearls

Will be back again soon with more cards

Three Cheers!!

Hip Hip Hooray

Well our eldest Grandson has a birthday again and it makes me feel really old, so far as to say, this is his last year as a teenager. But I must admit he has grown up more this year than any other which makes me so proud to say Happy Birthday Kieran.

I had no idea what I was going to do for his card this year so I just put my hand into the dies box and out popped the party pop up die and this is what I came up with, hope you like it. You could change the dsp background for a more up to date one.

The materials used are:
Card stock: emerald envy, glimmer paper (retired) Whisper white thick, whisper white
DSP: it’s my party (retired)
Stamp set: starburst sayings
Thinlits: party pop up
Punch: classic label

Accessories: rhinestones NSU

Will be back again soon with more cards
