This card is so easy to make and you can use any stamp set. The card is very vanilla 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4". I took a piece of printer paper, 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" and started to cut the center, then used my fingers to tear out the center, making a frame. I using some temporary adhesive and placed on top of the very vanilla card. Using sponges I made the background with Soft Sky, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz inks. I removed the frame mask and used basic black ink and stamped the banner from the Number of Years stamp set on the sponged card and stamped it again on a post it note. I fussy cut the banner stamped on the post it note and set it aside. Next I stamped "happy birthday" using basic black ink in the banner on the card. Next I placed the post it note stamped banner over top the stamped banner on the card. I used the E block and placed all 4 flower stamps on the block, aligning them up the bottom. I inked the flowers in black staz on ink and stamped them on the sponged card. I removed the post it note banner (this is a mask).. . The banner does not have any of the flower stems, thanks to the mask. I colored the flowers with markers that are the same colors that I sponged with and a few more colors too.
Only a few days left to order from the current Annual Catalog and the Occasions catalog... A few things: prices for card stock are going up as well as DSP 6x6 stacks. Also, bundle prices that are in the annual catalog and occasions catalog will not be available in the new catalog. If the items are not being retired, they will still be available for purchase, but separately.
I am putting in my last order on Monday, May 30th. I just took inventory of my card stock and I need 8 different colors, so I plan on ordering them in this order. Need card stock but don't want to order a whole package? Remember, I split card stock in half or thirds so you receive either 12 sheets or 8 sheets. Just need to know what colors. Want to order anything else? You can order from my website or you can contact me and I will add your order to the order I am putting in on the 30th. If you order from my website please use Hostess Code PCEB46Q4.. This code will be in effect til Monday the 30th, til about 2pm.
