Today I’m sharing these simple cards which have helped bump up my birthday card stash. They took just ten minutes to make each and you could make them in any colour.
I chose to use Blueberrry Bushell and Lovely Lipstick for these cards but you could use any colour you like.
To add a little interest I’ve added a strip of the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to each card. The greeting comes from the Seaside Notions stamp set and is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Perfectly Plaid bundle is one I’m just getting round to using and I’m finding it great for quick but stunning cards. This one took less than ten minutes to create and I think it looks fab.
I’m a huge fan of the Feels Like Frost dsp, it makes gorgeous backgrounds and I think this pattern works well with these tree stamps.
I stamped the greeting on some seperate card and fussy cut round the “Christmas Cheer” and added this to the bottom of the trees with some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A few rhinestone from the Noble Peacock collection finish the card off beautifully.
I love how this card turned out. It’s simple but classy and think its adesign which would work well with most of our Stampin’ Up! colours, which colour would you chose?
I’m so so sad that the Happy Birthday Die is retiring, this is hands down my most used die, its so perfect for quick and gorgeous birthday cards. If you just buy one thing off the retiring list then make this the product, I think its a must have and will never part with mine.
For this quick birthday card I used the Best Route DSp as inspiration for a colour palette taking Blueberry Bushell as my main colour, the perfect boy birthday blue in my opinion and mixed it with some Mango Melody and Call Me Clover.
I finished the card off with some balloons from Birthday Banners another stamp set which is leaving us at the end of May.
This card is for my godson who is ten tomorrow, I hope he likes it.
So today I’m bringing #SimpleStamping to the Vibrant Vases set. I was so pleased to see this in the new catalogue as its adds even more versatility to using the Varied Vases Bundle which is one of my favourites from the Annual Catalogue.
For this project I’ve used just four inks (Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Tuxedo Black Memento) and the stamp set.
Although these are photopolymer stamps and easy to line up I would suggest using the Stamp-a-ratus if your going to create an image where things need lining up in straight lines like the vase on the shelf. This would also make creating multiples of this card very quick.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s #SimpleStamping and a quick look at Vibrant Vases.
Being from a town which is cycling mad I knew I had to get the Enjoy Life stamp set with the bicycle image. Pairing that with the Best Route DSP and I’ve created a birthday which I think would be suitable for any male cycle enthusiast.
I think the Happy Birthday sentiment from Perennial Birthday is the perfect match for this card as its not too feminine. I also added a little decoration to the inside of this card so I could use another sentiment from the set.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project, hopefully I’ll come up with more ideas for male birthday cards soon.
