Amazing Birthday

February 17, 2018

I needed to create a birthday card and decided to use the Amazing You stamp set which is one of the products you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration (ends 31st March).  I punched a length of Cherry Cobbler card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind the diagonal edge of a piece of Designer Series Paper.  I had quite a bit of this pretty leaf piece left from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper which is now retired but thought it would go with this card design.  The designer series paper is attached to the top half of Whisper White card.  I stamped “lets” using Early Expresso ink and “celebrate” using Cherry Cobbler ink onto the lower part of the Whisper White card.  The greetings are from the Amazing You stamp set.  I stamped the floral image from the Amazing You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  I cut out the image using one of the Layering Circle Dies.  The image is attached to an Old Olive circle and then an Early Expresso scalloped circle cut using the same dies.  The image panel is attached to the card front.  I stamped the floral image twice onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the flower using Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out one complete flower and then the central leaves of the second flower.  I stacked the partial flower onto the full flower using a dimensionalThe image is attached over the stamped flower on the image panel.  I also added a Gold Faceted Gem to the centre of the flower.

To decorate the inside I stamped two more greetings from the Amazing You stamp set – “amazing” using Cherry Cobbler ink and “you” using Early Espresso ink.  I also stamped the floral image using Old Olive ink.  I stamped the flower again onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the Cherry Cobbler flower and attached it over the stamped flower.  I add a little Clear Wink of Stella to the centre of the flower.

I don’t usually share projects with retired product but I believe this Designer Series Paper works really well on this card, don’t you?  I think you will agree that this is an awesome stamp set and deserves to see more ink.

Bye for now,

Kris

    As for the retired DSP, there are a lot of papers with leaves that can be substituted if you don’t have that particular paper or you could use a leaf stamp and make your own design paper. The card is beautiful and would be easy to do by substituting. Just because something is retired does not mean it should not be used, in my opinion, because it can always stimulate ideasas with new things and new products.

      I agree Jean, the paper could easily be substituted by something else. I appreciate your comment and despite the fact it was retired the DSP works really well on this card.

        I guess my main point was that it seems like such a shame not to be able to use a product just because it is retired, especially when they are so pretty. Hopefully whatever is used would produce ideas about how to use other things that one has on hand without worrying that one does not have the exact paper or stamp. I say use that gorgeous paper as you did, even if it is retired!
