Butterfly Birthday

I have used the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions embossing folder, Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Butterflies Thinlits for today's card.

The card base and butterfly are Island Indigo and the embossed Spring Flowers circle is in Daffodil Delight. I have added a strip of Painted Blooms Designer Series on the left hand side of the card.

The greeting is from a retired stamp set. It has been stamped in Island Indigo and punched out using the Modern Label punch.

I have finished the card with three Island Indigo Candy Dots.

Sheltering Tree - Happy Birthday

One of the most popular stamp sets in the current Stampin' Up Occasions catalogue is Sheltering Tree. It is a two-step stamp set but it is very easy to use because it is photopolymer and that makes it easy to line up.

My card today is on a base of Wisteria Wonder cardstock, which has been matted with a piece of Wild Wasabi Background Designer Series Paper.

I have stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Baked Brown Sugar for the tree, and Wisteria Wonder for the leaves. The grass is stamped in Wild Wasabi.

The greeting is stamped in Wisteria Wonder and it is from a retired hostess set called Happiest Birthday Wishes.

This was a quick and easy card. You can achieve so many different looks with this stamp set by changing the colours. You can also add a bike, a swing or a rake. The set also has four lovely greetings.

The Occasions Catalogue finishes on 2 June 2015 so if you like this set you will need to purchase it before then.

Kinda Eclectic Birthday

I have used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch for the focus of this card.

I stamped a piece of Whisper White using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist ink. I then cut the stamped Whisper White card stock into three 5cm pieces and then punch the top and bottom of each piece with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.

I adhered the three pieces to a base of Island Indigo.

I finished the card with the two butterflies from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set, stamped in Island Indigo and punched with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches. They are attached to the card using Stampin Dimensionals.

This was a quick and simple card to make and shows the versatility of the Ornate Tag Topper Punch. You could try this card using the other Tag Topper Punches.
