This is the first time I used this set: Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I just love the images! This idea was CASED from Mary Anderson. I’m not sure if she has a blog, but she should!! Click HERE for her Pinterest Page.
To make this card, I decided on a sentiment and circle I was cutting out. I used a circle 1 size smaller for a mask, then just stamped around the circle. And take a look at the Classic Weave Ribbon. It’s so pretty & rich looking!!
The sentiment is from Better Together. Perfect for birthday, wedding, or any congratulations card.

Today we have a fun challenge for you to try… Masking or Stenciling!
I made a stencil by cutting out a tree using Perfect Pines Framelits Dies. Using sponge daubers, I sponged the tree with Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz. Decided it needed more color, so I reached for Rose Red. That’s one of those colors I forget about…but I just love it!
Isn’t that fun?!! I sponged the tree on This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The star is punched from Blossom Punch. I thought it would be cute with a bird, because of the music notes!
The bird was part of the Tree Builder Punch.
Which one do you like best? The star or the bird?
I’m soooooo behind! Ha! I’m afraid my friends are getting New Year’s Cards this year. But it’s all good. I’m just stretching out the fun.
It was fun to take a break this morning & make this card. I can’t wait to see what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has made for this challenge! CLICK HERE to see more ideas!
Today I’m joining the SSINK Team to CASE the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog! Specifically the cards on page 12. I can’t seem to get the picture here, so you’ll have to turn to page 12 for a look, or just trust me!
This one is called Festive Birthday. The colors are gorgeous and it’s very “festive & fun”!
Here’s another card…same idea. I really love the little banner stamped in the corner! That’s from Sweet Home Stamp Set.
