Happy Birthday Gorgeous - You Make Me Smile

Good Day Crafty Friends

Our team of crafters had a shoe box swap recently - I love these events!!! So fun to catch up with my Stampin' Sisters, eat some yummy homemade deliciousness, make each other's cards while chatting over coffee or tea - perhaps a dance to Tina Turners Nutbush...more card making and chatting. 

We all choose a card to make and then prepare ten lots of everything required to make our chosen card. It's so much fun! Like musical chairs, we move from station to station creating ten cards of our choice from the selection team members have put together.

A fairly simple card using four colours - the new in colour Berry Burst, Sahara Sand, Powder Pink and Whisper White.
The floral images are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Jar of Love stamp sets. The sentiment "You make me smile" is from the Colourful Seasons set.
The Whisper White card front was stamped using Sahara Sand ink and the little "nut" image, then a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock that was embossed with the Hexagons Embossing Folder and adhered over the top. The Whisper White circle was die cut using the Layering Circle Framelits which was added to a Scalloped edge layer in Berry Burst card stock.
The flowers from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set are a two step stamp - the outside was inked using Berry Burst and the inside using Powder Pink. These were stamped and fussy cut and then adhered to the card in various places using dimensionals.
The little leaf under the bigger flower is from Jar of Love and was inked using Sahara Sand and die cut using the matching dies for this bundle.
The Whisper White card front was adhered to a layer of Berry Burst card stock and then attached to a base of Sahara Sand.
Until next time, stay crafty x
