Skip to the Fun!

For the card below, I started with supplies from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit.  The monthly kits are great for beginning stampers because they contain everything needed for the project; cardstock, ink, stamp set and embellishments.

Paper Pumpkin kits are wonderful because the project is designed and prepped so you can skip right to the fun!  Experienced stampers love the kits,too, because by adding just a few additional supplies, the project can be altered to give it a unique spin!

Eclipse Technique Birthday Card

Today is my daughter’s birthday!  I knew I needed to make a special card for Anne and here it is.  It’s an “eclipse” style card – a wreath of greenery and some bright, fun flowers!

Stamp Set – Tropical Chic, Beautiful Bouquet, Rooted in Nature
Cardstock – Coastal Cabana, Shimmery White
Ink – Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody
Accessories – Tropical Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Snail Adhesive

I decorated the inside like this….

but chose not to include an inside verse so I can write my own birthday message!

Wish I could celebrate with my daughter in person, but she is in California and I’m in Wisconsin.  Believe it or not, it’s been warmer here than where she is!

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping!
