Theme Week - Birthday - Day 4

Welcome Back to Theme Week!
Birthday Wishes
Monday 5/21 – Saturday 5/26

This month, because my birthday is next Monday (5/28), I thought a good Theme Week would be Birthdays!  Birthday greetings are the most popular and, let’s face it, there are more of them than actual holidays. Be sure to comment at the bottom of this post to be entered is a Very Special drawing.  I will be sending one of you a Birthday Gift from me!

The Color Me Happy stamp set and Project Kit came out last fall and it will officially be discontinued at the end of the month.  However, it is now ‘While Supplies Last’ so I wanted to be sure to share it with you one last time.  Some of the cards can be used for Birthday, especially the Celebrate cards, but this kit & stamp set would make an excellent gift for someone’s birthday too!

The kit contains the above products with enough of each to make 16 cards and have a little leftover too!

These are the projects as suggested in the kit.  The coloring is done with Stampin’ Blends Markers, however, Watercolor Pencils, Stampin’ Write Markers, or ink with a Blend Pen would work as well.

I created the above versions to show a slight variation in the designs.  I am sure you’ll agree that there is a LOT of other alternative ideas that could be created just from the card kit alone!

Theme Week - Birthdays - Day 3


Welcome Back to Theme Week!
Birthday Wishes
Monday 5/21 – Saturday 5/26

This month, because my birthday is on Monday (5/28) I thought a good theme would be Birthdays!  Birthday greetings are the most popular and, let’s face it, there are more of them than actual holidays. Be sure to comment at the bottom of this post to be entered is a Very Special drawing.  I will be sending one of you a Birthday Gift from me!

Today I wanted to share how a simple change can make a big difference. Both cards use the Painted Glass stamp and same basic colors.  The first card is one I made at a recent Stampin’ Up! event.  It uses the some Coming-Soon New Products: Graceful Glass Vellum,  In Color: Lovely Lipstick card stock and ink, 2 New Blends Marker (Dark) Colors in Lovely Lipstick  and Pineapple Punch (another new In Color) and 1/8” Cord-black.

Stampin’ Up! Version

My Version

In my version of the card I use the same Graceful Glass Vellum, just cut in a different direction, and rather the stamp the sentiment in Memento Black, I used the new In Color; Lovely Lipstick.  I also changed the Blends by replacing Lovely Lipstick with Dark Pool Party.  What made the big difference is that I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and placed it behind the vellum.  This made the colors brighter.

Which one do you like better? I’d love to know!  Leave me a   Please let me know if you have any questions by leaving a comment (below the product photos).  I love to read comments from viewers. Don’t forget I will be sending a special gift to one of you!

Until Next time . . .
