CAS Birthday Cards with IBS

Good Morning Stamping Friends!!

I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog today, we are featuring CAS Birthday Cards!!

I tend to like a lot of layers, but think CAS cards are also beautiful!  I do find them to be a challenge for me once in awhile, but really enjoy creating them, especially when they turn out perfect!!

I decided to create a masculine and feminine CAS Birthday card...
I really like how both of these turned out.

The rounded top corners I think really helps finishing off them both.

For my masculine card I started by the yellow and lime green lines, which are part of the Background Basics Lines set.
I then stamped the sentiment.
The "Happy" is part of the Flower of the Month: Pansy set and the "Birthday" is part of the Flower of the Month: Sweet Pea,  I really like how the two of them look together.  

For this card, I started by using one of the Fancy Labels 2 Dies to cut out the fun shape from my top layer.  I stamped the 4 line trio from the Background Basics Lines set just in the middle of where I used the die cut, to match the lines from the frame below.  I also added the fun little stars on the top layer just to the left of my die cut shaped opening, which are part of the Create A Cupcake set.  The larger star to the top right is from the Diamonds set.
I then stamped the fun frame from the Fancy Labels 2 stamp set on the back layer!! As well as adding the sentiment in the middle of the frame, which is part of the Mason Jar Add On II set!

Super fun cards, using some amazing stamp sets!  And such fun colors!!

Go Green with GI

Happy Sunday Stamping Friends!

It's time for another challenge on the Great Impression Stamps Blog!

It's the 1st of March already!!

This month's challenge is:
GO GREEN!


Before I share my card, check out this month's new stamps:
LOVE them!! So fun!

You can find them here!
---------

So at first I wasn't sure what to do for this challenge, then the light bulb went off!

I first started with the fact that the challenge is "Go Green", so all supplies used have been in my stash for at least a year.  As well as making it a St. Patrick's Day theme! (except for the yummy candy!)

Yummy!  My kids will love this as a fun little gift on St. Patty's Day! 
(Even though we aren't Irish!)

For the tag on the top of the bottle I used just the "lucky" from the E828 Lucky to Have sentiment.

The stamped clover is part of the D476 Clover Border!

And the fun scallop border behind is recycled!!! 
Here's just a reminder that you can create your own "chipboard" from boxes around the house!!
I ripped of one of the sides to a granola box to used for the scallop circle!! :)

Super fun to do!

More Than Ice Cream with GI

Happy Thursday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

I have a fun and bright card to share with you today!!

The new E862 Valentine Ice Cream image is SUPER fun!
What a fun image to color!
(Warning....Seeing the image may make you hungry for some Ice Cream!!)


Don't let the name of the stamp fool you!
This image is perfect for any time of the year!
I created this card to send to our cabin this summer with a few dollars in, for the kiddos to get some ice cream!!
Yummy!!


I also really love the fun sentiment that goes along with the image, B244 More Than Ice Cream!!
