The current Stamp With Us challenge is to make a birthday card - good timing as it was my dear mum's birthday yesterday so needed to get one done anyway! My mum is passionate about gardens so a garden-themed card it had to be - in the end I chose to make a flower-pot card (measurements on Splitcoast).
Fun isn't it?!! I stamped flowers from Cause for Celebration and Best Wishes and More, cut them out then sponged the edges. Leaves are also from Best Wishes and More. The flowers and leaves were adhered with dimensionals, then added various matching buttons and brads to their centres.
Stamps- Ink - Always Artichoke/ So Saffron/Pretty in Pink/Bashful Blue
Card - Kraft/Whisper White/Always Artichoke/So Saffron/Bashful Blue paper from Summer Picnic papers
Other - buttons/brads/Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon/linen thread
And where there's a birthday there must be cake right?! As I always like everything to be matchy matchy I wanted to co-ordinate the card with a cake so started planning a flower pot cake, time was against me though so I changed plans to these:
MMMM! I love how these turned out!
The toppers are made by stamping the same flowers from Cause for Celebration in So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue. Cut them out, sponged their edges then adhered them to cocktail sticks.
Then stamped HAPPY BIRTHDAY with Papertrey's Fresh Alphabet set, punched out each letter with a 3/4 inch circle punch, sponged the edges and adhered them to the flower centres. This is such a fun idea - you can spell out people's names, special messages or stamp monograms for parties!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!
