Stylized Birthday

The Stylized Birthday stamp only comes in Wood Mount.  For some reason I NEVER get a good image with Wood Mount so don't buy them.  Other people swear by them, which is great because Stampin' Up offer 3 different types of Stamp.  There is the Wood Mount, which comes with the block of course, Clear Mount - which is the red rubber stamp that is used with the Acrylic Blocks and of course the newer Photopolymer Stamp - which is see through, has clear defined lines and is also used with an Acrylic Block.  Feel free to ask me any questions about any of them.  Also ask if you are not getting good images - as there are hints & tips that provide a perfect image everytime 😊

Anyway, onto a couple of very quick and easy cards that only require one Stamp Set but it is a beautiful stamp that looks so classy.  Of course it is the Stylized Birthday Stamp.  The Designer Series paper in the background is perfect to make the sentiment pop right off the page and this card is super, super quick but effective. 

The fantastic thing about the Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up is that it will always co-ordinate with the Cardstock and the inks used.  The result is a perfectly balanced, colourful and co-ordinating card.  As Stampin' Up! have done all the co-ordinating for you, all the products go together seamlessly and it reduces time and frustration.  It was what led me to love their products in the first place. 

For this first card I used the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (sadly retiring).  I used Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the base, matted on some Blushing Bride.  The bottom pattern is just the back of the top part and they go together perfectly.  The join is hidden by the Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped on some Whisper White cardstock and raised with Stampin' Dimensionals.  A few enamel dots and that is all there is to it. 

This card is created exactly the same but the focal colours are Mint Macaron and Island Indigo, again using the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper.
