Simple Birthday

Doodle this birthday card.

Bravo Burgundy card base with Basic Black layer. Then topped with Green Galore. The doodle is stamped in Bravo Burgundy at random. The flower is stamped on Glossy White paper in Staz-on, then water colored with Green Galore. Cut out and popped off the card with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Super Simple.

Hope this inspires you to do something simple. Don't forget, Stampin' Up! has select birthday sets on sale at 20% off this month. I'll make and post some samples to get you excited within the week. I can't wait for my shipment on Friday!

Cousin's Wedding

I made 2 cards, not sure what I liked. I decided to give the one I liked least to my mom
to give to my cousin. Anyway. Both cards were CASED from Splitcoaststampers. the colors were chaged, I think these are the colors of the wedding party, but I'm not sure about the kiwi kiss.

So yes, I used Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip.

Card one. Together Forever set with Polka dot background stamp. I also used my Big Shot with the swiss dots embossing folder for the main background. The card I cased from SCS was in Orchid Opulence and Black and it made a much better card. I also used the co-ordinating wheel with this, and the retired (from spring 08 mini catalog)
chocolate chip 1/4 inch twill ribbon.

Card two, the one that will be from me to my cousin and his new bride... I believe this is nearly exactly the same as what I saw on SCS but I changed the colors. Also the ribbon is different. Here I used Kiwi Kiss and chocolate chip. The ribbon is actually stacked. Layer one is the 5/8" striped grosgrain in color ribbon. Layer 2 is the retired Twill chocolate chip ribbon. I thought for sure they would have kept this :(

I used the Lovely Letters L (for my cousin's last name) inside the flowered circle from Together Forever and stamped them both -using the stamp positioner - on the envelope to have a co-ordinating set.

I hope I have the colors right.
Enjoy, I hope to have more cards to upload for you soon.

Keep on stamping!
