Lacy Birthday

Hello Stampers!  It’s Birthday time…another year on the calendar but I always remember that age is just a number! Today I have a card using the new Stitched Lace Dies.  Lots of little holes to poke out but so worth it!

It’s a shame to cover that beautiful die up but I wanted to get some design on the front. I love rounded corners because it makes the look softer. 


Not much to say – it’s all there! 🙂


The inside sentiment. Simple card but I think it is very pretty. 


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Itty Bitty Birthdays

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

I hope you enjoyed seeing this card and see what you can do with this very pretty die. 

Until next time…Happy Stamping!      Donna



Tropical Chic Birthday

Hello Stampers!  Remember Tropical Chic?  Today’s card uses that Stamp Set. I was inspired by my fellow demo and friend, Su Mohr. She does amazing designs.

I really like using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder with this set. 


I used a different technique to make the greens fronds.  I took markers and just scribbled across white cardstock like a green rainbow then die cut in different directions. I really like the way they turned out. I’ll do this again for sure!


The flowers were done using Stampin’ Blends. If you haven’t tried the Blends yet…you are missing out! You can do so much with them. I love them and have all the available colors!
