We are each using our favourite colours - it was incredibly difficult to narrow that down to only 3?? Of course I had to include green and blue - but which ones??
Eventually this is my choice, Navy, Lipstick and Shaded Spruce
I had to use some new stamps for this project and I had an enjoyable afternoon playing with the new Layered with Kindness set. I immediately fell in love with the leaf image, but it took me a little longer to find the right way to use the smaller images. It has 3 different sentiments which is useful and coordinates with 2 new punches.
The large label punch is great. You can also use the Timeless Label Punch as I've done on the front. It also pairs nicely with the Delightful Tag Topper behind it as well. I love the versatility of mixing old and new products, thanks Stampin' Up1 for providing us with that!
I created an easel card - one of my favourite birthday options - and used lots of texture with embossing the plate after I had stamped.
To get the right colour ribbon I dyed some of the new narrow white seam binding using the Lipstick inkpad and spritzing. - my fingers are still pink! but I love how soft the ribbon is.
I won't be posting this one so I stitched one of my last crystal buttons on with a little linen thread. I still love buttons on cards even though they aren't hugely practical.
You can find all the products I used here
for the inside message I used a sentiment from one of the new Sale a Bration sets -Sending You Thoughts- which is a great font, and I layered it on 2 labels - navy on navy and navy on white.
Some random stamping on a strip of white with "stamped off" spruce leaves created just enough colour to dress up the inside and create the stopper to hold the easel open.
OR any of the colour selections of the design team members - or all of them!!
There's a few combinations that I think I'd like to use too.
You'll find them all in the file on the Facebook group page here.
