Inspired Stamps Birthday


I have another birthday card to share today using the Inspired Stamps Birthday stamp set.  This is a wonderful acrylic set and I've barely scratched the surface of it today and can't wait to use it again!

I stamped the "happy birthday to you" circle with Stampin' Up! Night Of Navy ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die and layered it onto Carnival Navy using a second Spellbinders circle die.  I was inspired by the stars in the sentiment so I made a big star from Neenah Red Linen using Spellbinders dies to put my circle on.  It still needed something so I cut another Spellbinders circle in Kraft and embossed it with Cuttlebug Dots embossing folder and layered it onto a Navy Spellbinders Labels 3.  The white panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder and I added a little patriotic ribbon from my stash.

I also would like to announce the winner of the Inspired Stamps free stamp set of choice winner!  Congratulations Lisa Oliver it's you!  To see her wonderful art work go visit Lisa at Stamping With A Mission -
