Masculine Birthday Card

Finally, a masculine card! This one uses the Pennant Parade stamp set and the Pennant Builder Punch that coordinates so perfectly with it.  You can add any birthday sentiment to the label since it is a generous size.  I used the new Stampin' Up Framelits (Apothecary) for the tag, a couple vintage brads, my favorite embossing folder (Square Lattice), along with the stamp set and punch.  Colors are: Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.

Romance and Flowers

I love anything girly!  Victorian, feminine, flowery and full of ribbon and lace.... So when I saw this stamp set (Apothecary Art), I knew I had to have it. It coordinates with the Stampin' Up! Labels Framelits.  I also used the Top Note Die for the background.  The bottom is cut using Stampin' Up's Adorning Edgelits and embossing folders that coordinate to create that elegant raised edge.  Add some pleated ribbon, a little color using aqua painters, a tiny button and some Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds and you have a gorgeous, girly birthday card.

Tea Cup Vintage Card

Tea Shoppe Stamp Set and Comfort Cafe

 I love this stamp set.  It's all about tea and friendship. I used Comfort Cafe DSP for some of the cards while other cards have retired paper. Any small printed pattern would work. Choose a coordinating color for the large tea cup stamp and you are set.

I used a 1/2" piece of chocolate chip cardstock for the shelf and folded a half of a doily over one side.  Adhered the tea cup with stampin' dimensionals and added a little sponging to distress it.  This card features a Twillings tea bag in it. (Use 2 dimensionals stacked on top of each other to make a larger pocket for the tea bag).  The sentiment is punch out with a 3/4" circle and placed right over the Twillings tea bag tag.

It's hard to see in the photo, but there is steam coming up from the tea cup in these 3 cards.  The Scribble Swirls are a retired Sizzix die made out of cardstock vellum.  I love the blue one!  Happy Stamping!
