Tonight the design team is peeking Candles on Your Cake (by Melanie Muenchinger) and Hope Grows (by Theresa Momber).
Here is my card using Candles on Your Cake:
I love all the numbers in this set and ALL the fantastic birthday greetings...for those reasons alone---this set was a MUST have for me. Then...add in all the fun solid birthday images--candles, cakes, cupcakes. Love it!
See that little yellow ribbon? I ADORE IT.........it is part of the new StampTV kit that will be released this month!
I paired this set with October Afternoon Fly a Kite (8 by 8) pad. I love the combination of the two. To add to the whimsy of the card....I cut small slits on either side of the card and folded up every other one. I have been doing this on my cards/scrapbook pages a lot....just an easy way to add some fun dimension.
Next is a card I created with Hope Grows:
I adore the branches, butterflies and sentiments in this set. (I have another card using the butterflies that I will show at the release party.)
I used the large leafy plant to create the stem for some flowers I cut from designer paper (Thift Shop: October Afternoon). I stamped the sentiment and then used a Spellbinder oval die to cut it out. I tied some raffia around the edge of it before adhering it to the card. A simple card---but I LOVE simple!
