A Birthday Basket

A Birthday Basket

I needed a birthday gift.  But it had to be a stampin’ birthday gift cause it was for a stampin’ friend…

And I had just received my new Spring Occasions Catalog worth of stuff so, I thought I’d play around…

Here’s the card:

The words for this card are from the Celebrate Today stamp set.  I love layering them one on top of each other…

Sorry, but I cut the flowers.  They’re from the Best Day Ever Salebration Stamp Set (which is FREE with a $50 purchase).  And, do you notice the little heart??  It fits PERFECT in the scallop border punch.

For the gift, I just got a gift card, which is a universal delight.  But, to jazz it up a bit, I made a gift card envelope with the gift card framelit (which is still available, btw).  And, I wanted to present it in something special… so I put together the berry basket.  IT IS SUPER CUTE.  LOVE THE BASKET (and stay tuned, there will be more baskets in the future).  The DSP used here is also the SAB Best Year Ever DSP…

So, there… The birthday Basket.

You know you want one…  🙂

Best of… BIRTHDAYS!!!

Standard

Aren’t Birthdays fun times??  I’m happy now because my birthday always falls on our school’s FALL BREAK.  So, I always have the day off! It’s great!!

Anyway, thanks for joining us again on another Blog Tour!  This tour is the BEST OF 25 YEARS TOUR.  Every month of 2013, SU!  is bringing back some of the most popular images and adding a new image and releasing them in a brand new set!  AND… each set comes with a special decal proof of purchase sticker.  If you save 6 of these, you can trade them in for a FREE STAMP SET!!  (valued at 14.95).

For this set, I decided to make a cute set of 3×3 birthday cards… perfect for attaching to a gift.  SO…  with out further adieu, here is the BEST OF BIRTHDAYS!!  (132929, $14.95, clear)

For this set, I looked on Pinterest (my favorite place for wasting time) to find a color challenge.  This is a good way to jump start a creative process.  I chose one that was Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Basic Black, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party.  These cards are basically made all the same way… 3×3…  I used the scallop border punch to punch the bottom… and in doing so, I put a different color to be the inside of the card just so it would show up under the scallop border.

This set has mostly outlined images, so I pulled out the Many Marvelous Markers (and they are MARVELOUS) to do some ole’ fashioned coloring.  I love to color.

The rhinestones just added a touch of bling that made gave the little birthday tag a little sparkle.  I also toyed with using dazzling details glitter, but didn’t want to go over the top…

I like this one the best.  And, the black on the inside is only a 1/2″ piece, so that the giver could still write on it with a regular pen…

The moment I saw the oval stamp, it screamed to me white emboss on black card stock.  So, that’s what I did.  I also embossed on Pool Party so I could trim out that banner image in the center.

Well.  Maybe I like this one the best.  I like cupcakes.  DELICIOUS.

The supplies for these little cards are pretty simple.  In addition to the cardstock colors I listed above, I used black staz-on ink, the markers, and the scallop border punch.  You could sit down in an evening and knock a bunch of these out so you’d be set for birthdays for the whole year.  They’re cute and FAST and are sure to make the receiver smile.
