Blueberry Bushell Balloon Birthday Card

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.

Simple Stamping – Vibrant Vases

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.

Bicycle Birthday Card with Enjoy Life and Best Route DSP

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.
