Amazing Birthday | Stampin’ Up!

Amazing Birthday | Stampin’ Up!

 

I think all birthday’s should be categorized as Amazing Birthday’s since we made it another year.  Don’t you? Each time my birthday rolls around I thank God for giving me that new year.  

 

June is a crazy birthday month for our family.  Both my parents and my brother all have birthday’s in June so I’ll be busy making birthday cards for them.  

 

One of my new favorite stamp sets for birthday celebrations (and SO much more) is the Amazing Birthday stamp set.  There is GOOD NEWS about this stamp set.  It’s one of the first I’ve seen that can be used for other things outside of birthdays making it much more versatile.  

 

Amazing Birthday stamp set, Stampin' Up!

 

I started this card using the new Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  There was a squeal when I used this.  I love polka dots and the larger the better.  I used a sponge dauber to darken some of the polka dots.  

 

I stamped the focal image a couple of times in different ink colors so I could cut a few of the images out to pop them up on the original.  

 

I love how Early Espresso, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake looked together.

Another fun trick for this card was using the Burlap ribbon with my Large Scallop Edgelit to create a scallop border. This was so easy and fun to create.  

 

I added a little sewing to keep the ribbons in place and sewed this across the embossed banner.

Meanwhile, make today RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING!!  I sure do love you guys for taking the time to read my stories.  

P.S.  Our house is finally sickness FREE.  Everyone is on the mend and happy.  

 

BIG NEWS…… Tuesday (tomorrow) Russ goes for his driving evaluation to see if he is ready to get behind the wheel.  Can you please pray about this? He feels ready.  This would give him more independence.  We are hopeful.  

 

XOXOXOXO
