Birthday Cards Celebrations -Spellbinders / Fun Stampers Journey



Do you have a birthday card list that's longer than your craft store receipt?  You crafters know exactly what I am talking about - those craft store receipts can be crazy long. Too funny -our gauge for comparison!  But seriously, if you have a lot of folks on your birthday list, then you need some craft supplies that can accommodate your needs with simplicity and versatility.  

Introducing a stamp and die set that meets your needs and delivers perfect birthday sentiments too!

*********************************************************************************

Let the stamps and dies do the creative work while you sit back, relax and enjoy the process.  That's what crafting is all about - enjoying, relaxing and letting your cares melt away.  Swap the papers and ink colors used and you have a whole new look.

Feminine cards.....BAM done
Masculine cards ....you got this
Child themed cards....yep
Co-worker cards.....no problem
Church friends, old friends, new friends, friends from afar, Internet crafting friends.....

Let's talk Inks
Your ink color and quality are going to be the key for success with these stamps.  Swap out the ink colors and you've totally changed the look of the card.  It's that easy.  

You do need quality inks, however.  
I chose the happy cheery ink colors below.  The Fun Stampers Inks  have rich pigmentation with amazing coverage and come in a rainbow of colors.

Mix and Match Supplies
Now let's add a fun twist to your cards.  Start mixing and matching those Spellbinders Club dies and supplies with this Birthday Candle stamp and die set.  I happened to match Spellbinders APG-Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month , designed by Becca Feeken, and used the die as a background decorative border.  


Grab March's APG -Die of the Month while it's still available!

Fun Llama Stamps and Die Sets -From Spellbinders/ Fun Stampers Journey



Somethin'bout a llama
There's just somethin 'bout a llama that brings a smile to my face.  Look at that little critter....it's smiling back at me.  

Today I'd like to share a card that will make you smile too.  It's the "No Prob-llama" card featuring some fun stamps and dies from Spellbinders /Fun Stampers Journey and papers from Maja Design's Enjoying Outdoors Collection.  

Below are the stamps I used for my card.  I actually used the coordinating stamp/die sets called Arizona Trail Stamp Set and No Prob-llama Stamp Set.  The big "D" on the images below indicates a matching die is available for the stamp set.

Here are the papers I used from Maja Design's Enjoying Outdoors collection:
Gardening (both A and B side)
Picking Flowers (both A and B side)

I wanted this card to have lush dimension and pop with texture - thus the layer of burlap in the background.  The Maja Design papers are perfect for adding subtle color.  

I have added some foam to make the cactus pop and then decorated the cactus with mini flowers and floral berries from a craft store.   


Quality Inks Make a Difference
When using detailed stamps, quality inks do matter.  I found the Cocoa Powder True Color Fusion Ink Pad from Fun Stampers Journey had rich pigment and great stamp coverage.  The inks didn't soak in but instead stayed dark and robust.

Thanks for stopping by to see the llama and me.  Happy stamping.

Drive-Thru Burger and Fries Card from Spellbinders


Drive Thru - Burger and Fries Dies from Spellbinders

Some of the cutest die designs come in the smallest packages... also known as Spellbinders Die-D-Lites.  

Today I'm featuring the fun and fabulous Drive-Thru die set.  Burgers anyone?  Fries with that burger?  Maybe extra fries? Customize your burger anyway you like....double patty, cheese burger, lettuce, tomato.
                                       
I saw it on Spellbinders / FSJ

Die D-Lites Drive-Thru Etched Dies
                                                             
          from: Spellbinders / FSJ

Isn't this too cute for words?  Planning a summer picnic?  This would be perfect for invitations.  


Creating Interesting Background Using Spellbinders Circle Dies

I decided to keep my background simple with a bit of texture.  The focus is all about the burger.  I used Becca Feeken's Hemstitch Circle dies for the background.  The stitched die doesn't cut a circle image - it simply creates the stitching.  I used the two smallest stitch dies for the background.

Create a Blooming Cactus Garden Card with Spellbinders

DIY Blooming Cactus Garden Cards

Cactus come in so many sizes, shapes and varieties.  They are effortless to grow (meaning folks like me - folks with no "green thumb" can be successful).  

Spellbinders Card Club Kit features cactus, succulents and butterflies this month.  Timeless, effortless, beloved by so many and can be used for both masculine and feminine cards.  That's important because you need a card club that can cover all the events and celebrations that may arise throughout the month. 

Time to seriously consider  Spellbinders Card Club. 
The kit comes packed with paper, cardstock, stickers, die cuts, stamps and even the adhesives you need.   
In fact, this is what's included in March's kit:


The dies for the month include cactus, succulents, flowers, a pot, sentiment dies, and a variety of accent dies.    

Don't forget that you can also buy the "Extras" from the kit as well.  What are the "extras"?  The papers, and various embellishments, stickers, and this month the featured vellum butterflies, shown below.
