Countless Sayings Birthday

Last year Stampin' Up! started rolling out Photopolymer stamps.  The latest set I got is Countless Sayings 2, a great set for birthday sentiments.  My upline's birthday is this month and since I would be seeing her, I had to make her a card.

The main card is Crumb Cake.  The "Sweet" is stamped using VersaMark and embossed with White embossing powder.  Having the photopolymer clear stamps really helped line up the wording just right.  The "you're" is stamped in Bermuda Bay.  The design was based off a Shannon Jaramillo card using the same Countless Sayings 2 stamp set.  The banner punch made quick work of the flags Retro Fresh DSP.

I used the Petite Petals stamp set and punch to make the flower and put a mini brad in the center to add a finishing touch.  

A sweet birthday card for a sweet friend!

Gee Thanks, a Remix

It's time for us girls to get together and stamp!  When we do, we typically swap out card fronts to share ideas.  Since I still feel like I'm playing catch up with everything, I didn't have time to spend designing a new card.  So I did a remix of one I did not long ago here.

I wanted to do something that was more practical for the sentiment, so I stamped the Gee Thanks from the Just Sayin' stamp set in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and die cut using the Word Bubbles Framelits.

Quick and cute card using the same bundle of products by changing up the colors and sentiment.
