Happy Blooming Birthday card

This is a simple two colour one layer birthday card. The colours are wisteria wonder and blushing bride and the two stamp sets used are Flower Patch and Petite Petals. I embellished with Rhinestones jewels and just so the carefully cut edge shows I adhered a strip of the retired have a Cuppa DSP onto the outer edge of the inside. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

Bohemian Birthday card

I wanted to show case my favourite retiring in-colours both paper and ink. The colours are blackberry bliss, hello honey, Tangelo Twist and mossy meadows. None of the dies, punches or stamp sets are retiring with the exception of the sentiment which is from the retiring set sassy salutations. I was trying to achieve a kind of bohemian collage. And I’m quite pleased with the results. I can’t see myself not using these wonderful rich assortment of colours any time soon. I’m not afraid of retired stuff at all. I even use competitors products from time to time. But for the most part I try to continue to throw in a bunch of new stuff to drool over. I’m unpredictable. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

Thank you flowers 

Just a little punch and embossing!! The punches are the pansy punch and petite petals. The embossing folder is Fluttering. The colours are Wild Wasabi, Calypso Coral and So Saffron. The trim is clear glimmer paper with metallic glitter tape. Finally the sentiment is from Rose Wonder.
