Stamp to Share Blog Hop - Happy Birthday Gorgeous from Stampin'Up!

Hello there,
Thank you so much for joining me today, we are hopping around the world showcasing the *Happy Birthday Gorgeous* Bundle from Stampin' Up!

My first card used just the stamp set in a palette of So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Basic Grey..

I love that we now carry Thick A4 Whisper White cardstock so that we can create crisp white bases. Do you know? when I started crafting cards almost 18 years ago, no one ever used coloured card for base cards, it was always white.

The flowers in this set have a solid image with a coordinating detailed top image. So when stamped in this way you create wonderful detail with ease. 

The stripy black and white layer its actually a length of the wired Striped Ribbon, with a bow tied out of the Stitched Satin in Crushed Curry. The sentiment was stamped and cut with this Pretty Label punch 

My second card came about after falling in love with a catalogue sample. You will recognise the colour scheme I am sure 

As soon as I saw that colour combo, I knew I would re create it, and here it is :)

Flirty Flamingo with the irresistible Merry Little Christmas Papers and the large sentiment cut out of Sparkly Gold Glimmer Paper. 

The little flowers were stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink, topped with some black rhinestones ( Love These get yours HERE ) and the leaves punched out of garden green card with THIS PUNCH.
