Secret Garden Happy Brithday Card

I hope that everyone is having a great Saturday this weekend.  It is a beautiful day so I wanted to share a card we created at our"Retirement Party" this past month.  This stamp set Secret Garden will be discontinued with our 2013/14 catalog.  Sorry I have not posted this earlier, but I have been having a problem with my watermark program and had to buy a different program and like it better then then old one that I was using.  It is so much easier to put the watermark on my photos.  So here is a beautiful card to give to someone for a special birthday.  It is a bright and cheerful birthday card.  We used the secret garden stamp set and framelits that are being discontinued.  

Here is the recipe:
Secret Garden (#131940 W and #129144 C) and Bring on the Cake "Happy Birthday" #128490 W & #121958 C) stamp sets - both are being discontinued 
Papillon Potpourri (#132058 W & #123759 C) stamp set (the small butterfly)
Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White card stock
Gumball Green, Wisteria Wonder and Tempting Turquoise stamp pads
Secret Garden framelits (#129372)
Elegant Butterfly (#127526) and Bitty Butterfly (#129406) punches
Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#129324) being discontinued too

Sure hope you enjoyed your visit today.  Please leave a comment about what is your favorite item being discontinued.  Have a great rest of your weekend.  God Bless.

Wetlands Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday everyone.  It is a beautiful day in southern California today.  I was able to do a little stamping this weekend, so I would like to share some of my projects with you this week.  I wanted to share with you a really cool technique to do.  I used the label collection frame lit on a extra piece of card stock the same size as the whisper white card stock (3.75" x 5") and used the frame lit to cut out the design, then I put it over the whisper white card stock and used the 2 two colors to sponge in color in the cut out area. I liked the sponged look on the card.  This was a fun card that we made in class earlier.  I thought it was a good technique for today. 

Here is the recipe:
Wetlands stamp set (#126695 W or #126697 C)
Coastal Cabana, Soft Suede and Whisper White card stock
Coastal Cabana and Soft Suede stamp pads
Label Collection Frame lits (#125598)
Decorative Label Punch (#120907)
Natural 7/8" trim (#129287) - this ribbon is being discontinued

Thank you for visiting today.  Please leave a comment about this card.
