Hip-Hip Hooray... it's your Birthday!!!
Hello all my crafty friends! Welcome to today's share at Mrs. Lincoln's Inkin'!!!
Today's share is using new products from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. If you haven't seen it yet you can view the entire catalog HERE. Today's card is a Hip-Hip Hooray... it's your Birthday card (that is what it says on the inside). My card measures average size of 5 1/2" x 8"1/2" scored at 4 1/4". I used the Whisper White as my base and then a piece of the Melon Mambo (Melon Mambo isn't a new color but it is one of my FAVORITES). I ran my Melon Mambo through by Big Shot using the new Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder. I love this folder, it is not too busy... i like that it doesn't really take away from the vocal point of the card but just gives it a nice, simple, fun look:)
I then layered another piece of Whisper White and used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. I am obsessed with this set and the sunburst looking image. I cant get enough of it, lol:) It is a great stamp to use as a vocal point or as a background like i used above. This sentiment is from the new photopolymer stamp set Bravo. The photopolymer sets are completely transparent, so you can see exactly where your image is going to be placed without having to use your Stamp-A-Ma Jig. It makes it a lot easier for a person like me that has a hard time getting things straight:) One thing that i didn't realize when i purchased this set is that the greetings themselves are actually quite large, which i love.
The real vocal part of my card i think is the flower patch that i have in the bottom left corner. I used the Flower Fair framelit dies with an assortment of colors. I used Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, and Tangelo Twist. Now, the Flower Fair framelit can be used alone, like i did on today's project but you can also purchase it in a bundle so it comes with the awesome Flower Patch photopolymer stamp set. These are the 3 items that i am showcasing today. Here is a closer look at all of them:
So, that is all for my share today! Thanks for stopping by and i hope you visit again soon!!! Until next time...
