Quick and Easy Birthday Cards

Happy New Year!

The Sisters In Stamping asked me to join them this week in creating quick and easy birthday cards.  I was happy to join in.  I can always use birthday cards!

I always start with DSP when I make quick and easy cards.  It takes the guess work out of figuring out which colors to use.  And, I don't like a lot of white space; just not my style.

So, I broke out my new Happiness Blooms DSP.  It's so cute, right?!?!  I chose four designs from the pack and cut them down.  I then mounted those pieces on cardstock card bases. 

Next, I grabbed the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamps.  I used the Happy Birthday sentiment and stamped on Whisper White using Night of Navy ink.  I punched out the stamped sentiment using the Pretty Label Punch.  I then used the same punch and punched on Night of Navy cardstock.

I decided I wanted balloons on my cards.  So, I used my Balloon Bouquet Punch and punched out balloons from Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, and Calypso Coral cardstock.

Once everything was punched, I then assembled each card.  I layered the punched sentiment piece on the Night of Navy pieces in different ways.  Once I adhered everything down, I added some bows made from 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon and 3/8" Satin Ribbon in the matching colors.  I glued those down and finished the cards by placing some Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots along the punched sentiment.

These cards took me very little time - quick and easy :) 

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
