I love everything floral! Fresh flowers, pictures of flowers, floral sheets, floral quilts, and much more. Especially flower stamps, dies, and designer series paper. My Floral Happy Birthday card has it all.

Do you see the flower peeking out from the inside of my card? Do you stamp the inside of your card? That simple touch can really set your cards apart. It takes such a small amount of time and really makes your cards stand out. Why not try it on the next card you create? Are you inspired to create your own Floral Happy Birthday Card?

Hydrangeas are awesome! I remember my Grandmother always having huge, I mean HUGE hydrangea bushes in front of her home. The flowers were purple and blue and absolutely gorgeous. Clearly, my Grandmother could grow anything. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for me. At least, now I can stamp them to my heart’s content, and in any color I choose. Hopefully, you will create a Hydrangea “For You” card for someone in your life. Your thoughtfulness will certainly be appreciated.

Hummingbirds are such amazing creatures! A few fascinating facts about hummingbirds: only found in the Americas, hummingbirds cannot walk, the smallest hummingbird species weighs less than a dime, and most beat their wings 60 to 80 times per second. And I thought they were only pretty. Hopefully, my “A Touch of Ink” Happy Birthday card showcases their beauty!
I am constantly amazed by their beautiful colors. I love to color; always have, always will. It is gratifying to color with Stampin’ Up! Blends Alcohol markers. They blend so seamlessly, and with minimal effort, you can achieve beautiful, vibrant images.
In my video below, I will show you just how easy it is to color with alcohol markers. I trust that you can recreate this “A Touch of Ink” Happy Birthday card and give it to someone special in your life.

Let’s make a Simply Thankful card. Sometimes we just need to stop and take the time to be thankful for all the good things. With everything that is currently going on in the world, being thankful can be difficult. However, if we take a moment and ponder the small blessings that touch our lives every day, we can become simply thankful.
When I first started on my card making journey, I never decorated the inside of my cards. Despite that misstep, I have learned just as in life, that often the inside is much more important. We choose the right sentiment, write the heartfelt message, and add a little something to reflect the front of our card. These steps make our cards more memorable and often touch the hearts of our recipients.
It seems as though I always need thank you cards; I especially love this Forever Blossoms thank you card. The Forever Blossoms stamp set is so versatile, especially with the matching CherryBlossom dies.
I colored the Forever Blossoms images with the SU! Blends Alcohol Markers. Yes, coloring can seem intimidating. However, it isn’t. Just a few simple tricks, and you, too, can create beautifully colored images.
Take a moment to watch my video below and learn just how simple coloring with SU! Blends can be!
Hopefully, you will take time to create this lovely Forever Blossoms Thank You card.
I love the look of my Parisian Beauty Birthday Card. I had such a fun time putting all the parts together to form a beautiful but elegant card.
Repetition stamping can sometimes be quite tricky. However, the Parisian Beauty sentiment easily lines up; don’t be afraid to try it. Did you notice the beautiful embossed background? I used the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. One of my very favorites!
I find it helps to repeat a color three times on my cards. In particular, the gold-edged ribbon, the gold on the Golden Honey DSP, and the gold embossed Eiffel tower. Consequently, the color repetition helps your eye travel across the card and adds continuity to the design.
Did you notice the fleur-de-lis stamped in Blushing Bride? It adds just that touch of color to tie everything together. I love my simple, elegant card. Hopefully, you are inspired to stamp your own Parisian Beauty Birthday card.
