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.
