Happy Friday! Another week, come and and gone, and we’re getting closer to Christmas! This weekend I have some friends coming over for some stamping and crafting fun. We’re going to make holiday ornaments, cards, tags and just enjoy the season together. I’m really looking forward to it. I love that Stampin’ Up! brought us all together, otherwise I doubt I would have met these amazing ladies, whom I’m grateful to now call my friends! The same goes for members of my “Serene Stampers” group, whom I adore. Each month I like to make birthday cards for these lovely gals and send them a little ‘hug in the mail’. The cards I made for this month’s birthday girls were based on a card demonstrated by Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up’s co-founder, at last month’s On Stage event. Shelli used new product coming out in our Occasions catalogue and I used three different stamp sets on my version:
First I inked the doily image from “Very Vintage” with Daffodil Delight, stamping off first onto scrap paper. Next, I stamped the branch from “Colourful Seasons” with Old Olive ink and flowers with Daffodil Delight. The sentiment is from “Picture Perfect Birthday”. I decided to add a little bird and butterflies from our “Enjoy Life” stamp set. I love combining stamp sets on a project!
Ok. Coffee and wood. Must run. Have a WONDERFUL day! xx
Thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you were inspired by today’s project and that you’ll visit again soon!
