Swirly Bird Happy Birthday Card

Here is a bright and cheerful birthday card that I CASED from my friend Barb.  We had a fun time stamping together a few weeks ago.  This is a stamp set that I had seen quite a few demonstrators creating projects using.  I wasn't too sure of the bundle but after going to class and using Barb's bundle, I ordered it.  The only thing that I recommend is that you use wax paper with the thinlits, it makes it so much easier to separate the card stock from the thinlit.

Here is the recipe:
Flirty Flamingo (#141416), Sweet Sugarplum (#141418), Peekaboo Peach (#141417) and Very Vanilla (#101650) card stock
Flirty Flamingo (#141397), Peekaboo Peach (#141398), Sweet Sugarplum (#141395) and Emerald Envy (#141396) stamp pads
Swirly Bird Bundle (#142353)
Teeny Tiny Wishes (#128748 W) (#127802 C) happy birthday
Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (#141489) for the butterfly
Washi Tape Punch (discontinued) - the Classic Label Punch (#141491) would be great but mine is missing at the moment.

Please send this post to another friend that would enjoy it. Then please write the name of your friend in the comments.  There might a surprise at the end of the week for you.

Thank you for visiting today.  God Bless.

Flourishing Phrases Thank you card

I went to another demonstrator class in June and learned to do this fold.  It is very easy and shows the pretty design on the other side our designer paper.  I just love this Pop of Pink designer paper we have.  Fun card to create and give to someone letting them know that thankful you are or you could change the  greeting.  I think it would be a great birthday card.  Change the greeting and have fun creating your card.

The recipe:
Basic Black (#121045), Melon Mambo (#115320) and Whisper White (#100730) card stock
Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper (#141648)
Melon Mambo (#126948) stamp pad
Fourishing Phrases (#141531 W or #141534 C)
Flourishing Thinlits (#141478)
Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246)
1/8" Stitched Ribbon Melon Mambo (#141650)

Here are the directions for Pleated Paper Fold technique (also known as the Curtain Fold or Drapery Fold). 



Measurements:

Using your Stampin' Trimmer, line up one end of the paper at 1" and the opposite edge of the 3" score mark in the cutting line and cut.
