This week’s challenge for TGIF Challenges was to use Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide, three colours which I love together. I’ve had this Bee Unique card idea in my head for a while and decided these bright colours would work perfectly with the black be background I wanted to stamp.
After I had stamped out my black bee background it looked a little harsh against my Berry Burst matt and Tranquil Tide card base so I added a layer of vellum over the top.
I then took the Labeller Alphabet stamp set and carefully stamped out BEE Unique to be my greeting.
To finish the card I cut various shape from the May Flowers, Layering Circles and Detailed Dragonflies Thinlits sets, including a Berry Burst bee as a focal point.
To add a little more Lemon Lime Twist and to hold the vellum in place I added a striped punched from the Ticket Tear punch.

Today I’m highlighting the Birthday Bright set, a set which I love but think has been slightly overlooked in the catalogue. It’s supposed to compliment the Birthday Bright project kit but I feel its a great little stamp set on its own. It’s especially useful for making quick and simple birthday cards.
I choose to pair this set with the new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack, which now comes as loose sheets. I choose the Lemon Lime Twist sheets as its so bright and felt it matched the feel of this stamp set perfectly. I love how well it has worked with both Berry Burst and Pacific Point.
I think my favourite thing about the Birthday Bright stamp set is this Happy Birthday font, its big, bold and curvy meaning you don’t really need to add much else to make a great card.
I added the balloons to add to the birthday feel but think this card would have worked just as well without them. Bold and bright these cards make me happy when I look at them. If you like the Birthday Bright set then gab it quick as its only around for four more days!
