Betsy's Blossoms Birthday

This set is called Betsy's Blossoms and is one of the new sets in the Stampin' Up! catalog also using the new In-Colors - Gumball Green and Midnight Muse.  I love these two colors together.The ribbon is 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon In-Color Gumball Green.  I stamped the bird with the Gumball Green ink on the Whisper White 2 1/2" Circle.  Then I stamped it again over the first bird with Midnight Muse.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White I stamped another bird with Midnight Muse, and cut out his wing with the Paper Snips and attached with a dimensional.  I used the new Paper Piercing template around the circle.  I love these templates as it makes it so much easier to do the paper piercing technique.  For the birds eyes, I attached Pearl Basic Jewels.  The Happy Birthday was from the set, Itty Bitty Banners and I used the Framelit Die in the Big Shot to cut out the banner and attached it with Dimensionals.

Betsy's Blossoms and Wacky Wishes


This is my latest card made with new stamp sets and colors from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  The original idea was for a gift card by Madeline Morcelo, but I just made mine into a pull-out card and I used a different stamp set.  The colors I used are with the new In-Colors, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse.  The Stamp sets are Betsy's BlossomsItty Bitty Banners and inside the "Happy Birthday" is from the new hostess set Wacky Wishes.  The ribbon is the new Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I used the Modern Label Punch and the Bitty Banners Framelits.
