Happy Birthday Tag by designer Gretchen McElveen


Happy Birthday tag by Gretchen McElveen

Hi there! 
I got a little “green” the other day and used the backing from a package of buttons to make this easy birthday tag. The backing that the buttons came attached to was perfect for a cute tag! It already has a hole in the top and the bottom has a cute scalloped border. No way I could just throw it away! So I covered up everything printed on the backing with some patterned paper in the “Birthday Bisque” line from Jillbean Soup and the tag started taking shape! I added a die cut star and some star confetti (from KI Memories!) to embellish around the sentiment. Then I finished it off with some ribbon at the top! Thanks for looking!

Love Today card by designer Patty Folchert


Love Today Wedding Card
The new Doilies and Woodgrain stamp and stencil set from Jillibean Soup helped me to create a chic non-traditional wedding card. 

Love Today card by Patty Folchert

Using the doilies from the set I stamped them onto the cream card base using black ink. Then I added the flashcard with a charcoal gray cardstock mat. Next I added the KI Memories black glitter dots and the Wise Words Love sticker. Then I added the icon sticker couple with 3D foam dots and one large clear wood sprinkle for a dramatic effect.


A surprisingly simple card that makes a big statement for that big day! I really love these doily stamps, so versatile.

Stamped with Love,
Patty

Stamps & Stencils card by designer Melinda Spinks

Hello and welcome... it's Melinda with you today and I've been having some fun playing with the new Stamp & Stencil sets, in particular the gorgeous doily stamps. I don't think I could ever tire from using doilies on my projects as they as just so darn sweet and extremely versatile.


I used the new 'Label' Stamp & Stencil set which boasts the clear stamp doilies and the woodgrain stencil... honestly it's a perfect combination.


INSTRUCTIONS | Step x Step
1. Cut and score a piece of white cardstock measuring 4" x 5.5" when folded.
2. Cut a single sheet of white cardstock measuring 3.75" x 5.25".
3. Using a selection of the clear stamps and different colored inks, stamp a collage of doilies in a layered approach (allowing each stamp to dry in between stamping) across the bottom third of your single sheet of white cardstock.
4. Using black ink, stamp your sentiment across the centre of the stamped doilies.
6. Add epoxy dots in a co-ordinating color to the centre of the main doilies.
7. Using foam pop dots adhere the single sheet of cardstock to the folded card making sure you have even space around each edge.

29 Again?! Birthday card by designer Gretchen McElveen


Hi there! I’m sharing a birthday card with you today using the fun new “Birthday Bisque” line from Jillibean Soup! 
29 Again?! card by Gretchen McElveen

I made this one with the intent of using it to set on someone's desk at work on their birthday instead of trying to fit it in an envelope to send through the mail. This is a big and bulky card. It's 5.5 inches squared. I used lots of foam adhesive for dimension and the balloons extend way up over the top of the card. It would not fit in an envelope easily! But it is big enough for everyone in the office to sign and it will be easy to spot when the employee arrives at her desk! 


Thanks for looking!
