So Grateful Birthday

grateful birthday
I had a slew of birthday cards to send this month, so I made a large group of this pretty card featuring So Very Grateful stamp set.  It was super easy putting it together when you have pretty designer paper like Sweet Sorbet Sale-A-Bration paper to use!  Color scheme is all set for you – Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit – yum!

  • So Very Grateful has several coordinating images.  I stamped the tone-on-tone flower image with one stamp then used the larger stamp to create the main image using VersaMark Ink, Black Embossing Powder and heat setting it with my Heat Tool.
  • Watercoloring is a snap with the Aqua Painter and stamp pads.  I love watercoloring inside heat-embossed images.  It's kinda like embroidering or cross-stitching when you add the black around the image and it comes to life!
  • My very favorite corner rounder?  The Envelope Punch Board!
  • The black zig-zag edge is from the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die – I use this all the time!  (If you follow my blog you know what I mean!)
  • "Happy Birthday" is from a hostess-exclusive stamp set called Express Yourself.  And what better month to host a workshop than March – earn $30 more hostess dollars with a workshop over $300!  Or get together a few friends and host your own online workshop to qualify.
  • A Black Candy Dot is my only embellishment so as not to detract from the embossed and watercolored flowers.

Guest Designer – Phyl Lyons

Phyl's bird

Good friend and fabulous stamper Phyl Lyons created this card for me, and I just had to share! 

  • Colors are Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Whisper White.  Aren't you happy Pear is back?!
  • Background cardstock is run through the Big Shot with the Chevron Embossing Folder.
  • The Doily creates the perfect backdrop for the next two circle images.  The plaid comes from Kind & Cozy stamp set, and the pretty bird is from Simply Sketched which is a hostess-exclusive stamp set.
  • The sentiment is also from a hostess-exclusive stamp set called Express Yourself.  This is a fantastically versatile stamp set with 12 of the most popular greetings. 
  • Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon gives a pretty accent. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing Phyl's card.  If you'd love to own the two hostess-exclusive stamp sets, you can get them in one of three ways:
