Fast and Fun Birthdays





































It's been a great weekend for stamping with the sun shining and the spring like weather, and I have been so inspired to create.  I also love it when you find a sentiment that is the focal point of the card. The Big On Birthdays stamp set has wonderful large images that make for fast and fun card.  I have lots of birthday cards to make in the coming weeks, and I am sure this set will get plenty of use.  I started with a lovely spring floral from Bloom & Bliss DSP.  Then I stamped the image and cut it with the Lots of Labels framelits.  I tucked a pretty doily behind it to soften it up a little, and a couple of pearls for some sparkle.  So Easy! 
I found my inspiration in the layout from the Paper Players Challenge 332, my colors came from Color Throwdown Challenge 430 and and Stampin Royalty's Challenge 363 to use Dies this week. 
Stop back soon,

    1. I was a little hesitant to combine these colors for the card, but I loved the vase so much and was so inspired to play around. In the end, I loved the choices.

  2. Wow, Mary, what a beautiful way to tell someone Happy Birthday. Big and bold, I like it. And that is one of my favorite DSP's this year too! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players! Crystal

    1. I love a pretty DSP that makes a simple card, and even better a stamped sentiment that speaks loudly. I know I will make this card over and over.
