Keeping it simple today with the Label Me Bold stamp set. This one is full of abstract images which are perfect for creating all kinds of patterns, you can’t really go wrong. This kind of stamping with shapes is something I find very relaxing which is good as its been a stressful day!
This first card features Rococo Rose and Petal Pink. For the greeting I stamped Happy Birthday three times on scrap paper in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut these out with a small white border and adhered them to the card with the Foam Adhesive Strips.
The second card uses Bermuda Bay and Pool Party for the background colours. For a little bling I added some Champagne Rhinestones to the pink card and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels coloured in Dark Pool Party Blends among the greetings.
The images in the Beautiful Moments stamp set are bringing back a lot of happy memories for me at the moment as I’m longing to go the the beach and feel the wind in my hair as I walk along the beach with my little girl…..one day soon I hope.
These images are also great for colouring which is what I’ve done here using Seaside Spray, Petal Pink, crumb Cake, Old Olive and Higland Heather Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used the stitched rectangle die from the Nature’s Thoughts die set, this will be back in the new catalogue in June.
For the background I used Rococo Rose cardstock in the new Ornate Flowers 3D Embossing Folder, which could be my new favourite as I love those cute little flowers. I added some of the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon to finish the card off.
Today I’m sharing another birthday card duo, this time featuring the Piece of Cake stamp set and matching Cake Builder Punch. I’ve used Rococo Rose for one card and Seaside Spray for the other and kept them simple by using no embellishments.
I used the Fluid 100 watercolour paper for the background and used the Aqua Painter to create a wash of colour over the backgorund. I then used the finger flick technique to add the flecked ink across the card to add some more detail. I then stamped the Happy Birthday from the stamp set all over randomly in Rococo Rose.
For the centre of the card I stamped dotty/stripy birthday cake in Tuxedo Memento Ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends beforing punching out. I also punch out to cake stands in Silver Foil. I then cut a white oval matt and stamped the little lollipops at the top. I adhered the white oval onto a Silver Foil oval and then attached to my card bases.
As a finishing touch added the cakes to the centre of the ovals using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some dimension and interest to the card.
Which is your favourite the pink or blue version?
Taking a break from the Christmas projects today I’m sharing a pair of cards made from the A Little Lace stamp set. I chose to keep these cards fairly simple with just Rococo Rose or Pretty Peacock with a tiny hint of Crumb Cake on the ribbon.
I used the Basket Weave 3D embossing folder to give the background some subtle texture and used the Stitched Rentangle and stitched Shape die sets for matts for the main floral image and for my sentiment. A little length of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds some more texture and a pop of colour from the Crumb Cake.
As a final touch to each card I added some of the 2019-2021 In Colour Facet Dots to the centres of each flower.
Hope you like todays project and pop back soon

Don’t you just love this gorgeous rose image, it comes from the stamp set To A Wild Rose and was designed by Mary Ellen Byler who is one of Stampin’ Up! Million dollar sales acheivers, I think she’s done a fantastic job with this set.
This stamp set is a two-step stamp set meaning you build up various stamping layers to create one image, you may only end up with one flower and leaf combination but the design possibilities with the images are endless.
Today I’ve gone very simple and used just one flower as my focal point with a couple of leaves to add some colour contrast.
I chose a colour scheme of Rococo Rose and Old Olive which match the roses in my own garden. By stamping off the Rococo Rose on some scrap paper the bottom layer of the rose is lighter, which adds some lovely dimension.
I’ve embellished the centre of the rose with a few pearls just to give some additional interest to the card.
To finish the card the greeting was stamped on a whisper white stitched rectangle which I think lifts the rose from the background paper from the Woven Threads DSP.
What’s your favourite colour combination for roses, I’d love to know?
