And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Here is a samples for the Script Birthdays Set:



Creative Nugget: Several sentiments from the Script Birthdays clear stamp set were stamped in rainbow colors on a Solar Crest panel.  This panel was given some texture with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The banners were hand cut and attached on the diagonal.  The package from the Birthday Bash stamp set was also stamped in rainbow colors and cut with the matching Birthday Bash Die Set.  The card front was matted in True Black and mounted to a Solar Crest card base.  A few pearls, Baker's Twine, and a button were added to finish the card.


Here is a sample using the Birthday Innies Set:



Creative Nugget: For this sample I decided to feature the Birthday Innie on the outside!  Kaisercraft patterned papers were stitched to True Black card stock and mounted to a Solar Crest card base.  The birthday sentiment was stamped on a Labels One Die and matted on a Decorative Labels One Die.  A Decorative Frame Topper was stamped above and beneath the sentiment.  Some seam binding was dyed to match the card for a bow.  Button twine and pearls were added.  The flower is actually an organza brad.  The prongs were cut off so it could be attached to the bow.  This card is a CASE of one made by Ellen Parker who is today's Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers!

Very nice cards! I like your colorful background made with the birthday stamps! On the second card, I like how the Innie sentiment fits just right on that die, with the pretty decorative topper & pretty black frame around the outside. Very pretty bow & flower!

Beautiful cards! I love the variety of scripts for the birthday sentiment! and the wonderful old time feel of the second.

Jean Bullock said...

Wow, two different kinds of wonderful. Love how you created a Happy Birthday font sampler for the background paper of the first card. The second card is very different from the first. The colors and patterns you chose, the layering, shapes and the embellishments are all such perfect choices and so well done. The sentiment was the crowning touch.
