Another Birthday Card?!

Hello Friends! Yes! I have another birthday card to share. I am in the process of re-setting my studio...putting away all the Winter stamps and papers and bringing in all of the Spring and Summer stamps and papers. It's an exciting time and I usually don't create much. I enjoy looking at all my old stuff with new eyes. It's so motivating and gets me in the mood to create. But for now...I saved a few cards that I created recently and I will be sharing those with you over the next few days.

Todays card features all Stampin' Up! products. I made this one at my dear friend, Caryl's Stamp Camp. LOVE those stamp camps...lots of new products and fun techniques shared! The stamp set I used is one of the new photopolymer sets that Stampin' Up! now carries. They have wood mount, cling and now these!

I love the color combo on the patterned paper! I love the patterns, too. The strips were cut at varying widths and then I cut each one into a banner end.  I adhered them to a piece of light brown card stock and added the strip of gold glitter card stock on top. I tell ya, that touch of gold...just makes the whole card sing! Gold is so trendy right now and I love it! I added a few gold sequins to pull it all together.

That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by!

You know Barb, I never thought about putting away winter type stamps and pulling out spring/summer type. What a great idea! I'm sure that it is very motivating to see all the stamps again. You are very clever. As for another birthday card? I don't think one can ever have too many, so share away. Like you I really like that color combination and all the banner flags. That touch of gold looks great! I'm happy for you that you have such fun at stamp camps, too. Would love to hang out with you at one! :)

Wow - You must be a totally neat person to clear out your craft room seasonally, Barb! I am not that highly organized - LOL! Your birthday card just pops - the banners are darling, and I love that sentiment. Your color combo rocks :)
