Miles Apart But Still in My Heart on Your Birthday

The solitary Poppy is stunning against a yellow watercolor background surrounded by bright colors. I combined three stamp sets and the Lovely Label Pick a Punch from my stash to whip up this cute card. The Pattern Party exclusive Host Designer Series Paper rounded out the fun with the colorful hearts background. This is my first time using the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set and I feel like we’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the coming months. Such a simple way to add interest to a layer while still keeping the card light.

You’re Absolutely Amazing

The Scalloped Contour Dies and Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper do the heavy lifting on this uplifting, colorful card! Sometimes I just like to let the Stampin’ Up! Designers take me where they want to go and that’s exactly what I did here. Each paper pack comes with a list of the colors used. I opened the Sweet Symmetry DSP, chose the piece I wanted to use and then consulted the list of colors on the package to match my inks, cardstock, ribbon and other pieces. I love the coordination of Stampin’ Up! products! It makes cards like this come together in a jiffy.
