Endless Birthday Wishes

Happy Saturday all! Wow, the humidity is super hot you would think it was July!  I wanted to show this card because it goes wonderful for a 4th of July birthday.  I used the Photopolymer stamp set Endless Wishes (which sold out-currently awaiting to be remade I believe?)and got the layout inspiration from Kimberly VanDiepen.  I used Whisper White to make the base of the card and layered Night of Navy on top of that.  I stamped on another layer of Whisper White with the stamp set Work of Art(chevrons) in Cherry Cobbler.  I stamped out the Happy Birthday and the cake from the Endless Wishes stamp set in Night of Navy and the splash of color over the cake is an image from Work of Art also, only I stamped it in Island Indigo. I punched it out using the 1 3/4" circle punch and sticking it down on a piece of Cherry Cobbler that I cut out using the Starburst Framelits.   I used the new star punch  and punched out stars in Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Silver Glimmer Paper.

Wheely Sweet Friend

 Well, another month of card classes in the book.  Was excited to use some new product from the catalog and some "older" product with it.  Sadly, I have had this stamp set since last year's catalog and just now used it! I started by layering Baked Brown Sugar onto Whisper White.  I ran a layer of the new Hello Honey through the Decorative Dots folder, just over the top half and stamping the bicycle in Hello Honey ink.  I used two different pieces of the Lullaby DSP and flagged the ends.  I punched out a 1" Scalloped Circle from Baked Brown Sugar and the 7/8" Scallop Circle punch from Crisp Cantaloupe and snipped into each to make a flower.  I finished off the center with a 3/4" circle of Champagne Glimmer Paper.  For the sentiment, I colored the stamp with the Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar Stampin' Write Markers onto Whisper White and also flagged the end of the paper.
I have 4 more cards to show this week, so stay tuned to find more inspiration.
