Welcome to this month's blog hop. This month, I went with the theme birthday and I created nothing but cards! You will see why in just a minute.
But first, my Grandma's 81st birthday was this past Sunday and we celebrated with a little party. Here is the birthday card that I made for her!
My Grandma loves butterflies. So I used the new Papillon Potpourri, the Patio Party DSP and the Elegant Butterfly Punch! It all pulls together so nicely! I just LOVE it!
I went for a Whisper White card base with another layer of Whisper White on top with dimensionals. I love this look! This card is super simple and could easily be recreated!
The sentiment comes from the NEW stamp set: Made for You. For just $8.95 in clear mount, I couldn't pass up these three sweet sayings. "happy birthday" "thank you" "especially for you"
And here is my project this month. For my Grandma's present, I created 10 cards for her with my new favorite stamp set, DSP and punch! Put with envelopes and tied with a cute little bow (ribbon is not Stampin Up...sorry) it makes such a cute little gift! :)
So now I will show you the cards that I made for her pack. I made 5 different designs...two of each design.
Card #1: Midnight Muse card base...I think this is my favorite new In Color! Don't you love it? This Patio Party paper also has: Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petals in it!
Card #2: I love banners these days! This card is pretty straight forward.
The 1-3/4" Circle Punch punches out this circle design from the Patio Party DSP just perfectly! And I really do thank SU for creating the Elegant Buttefly punch. Without it, I would be cutting out a lot of butterflies because I always feel like they would be popped up on dimensionals with the wings bent up a little to add dimension!
Card #3: This card uses the Make a Cake stamp set. I love this one...that cake is SO CUTE! And don't you just adore that cupcake paper from the patio Party DSP???
Card #4: For the card base of this card, I used the In Color Raspberry Ripple. Love how it looks with Midnight Muse!
I also love the effect that stamping directly on DSP give you! Check it out!
Card #5: Sorry it's sideways...my computer was NOT letting me turn it the correct way...ARGH! But this card was really, really simple! Almost too simple for my liking but I have already given it to my grandma so I can't fix it now!
Hope you enjoyed all of the card creations you have seen here today. Next time you need a present for someone that you know still likes to send letters...think about a cute pack of cards!
Please take some time to continue on the hop today! I know I'm the end...but if you didn't start at the beginning...go there NOW! These ladies are very talented and I want you to see all of their creations!
