Birthday Stamp Camp Card #1

Hi Stamping Friends!

I had a wonderful time at my Birthday Stamp Camps this past weekend.  I even had three new gals come.  How fun is that?!  I usually do a camp every other month.  Last year I did them every month, but it got to be too much with the busy life of my family.  Every other month works out perfectly.

This was my favorite card from the set of five cards.  The colors just make me smile.

I used the Sweet Pea DSP pack from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  The card base is Whisper White layered with Old Olive.  The Old Olive has been embossed with the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates.  The flower is punched out with the Extra Large Fancy Flower from the mini catty.  The stem is stamped in Old Olive and comes from the Sweetheart stamp set.  The birthday sentiment is from the set called A Little Birthday Cheer, which you can get FREE through the end of March with our Sale-A-Bration promotion!  It is punched out with the Modern Label punch.  I love punching out my sentiments.  Not only can you raise them with Dimensionals, you don't have to worry about stamping it straight!

I made an "up-do" version of this card, for the two bakeries where I sell my cards: Goodies Cookies and The Frosted Muffin, both in Visalia, CA.

I used a different print of the DSP, plus added a Pumpkin Pie Corduroy button and the Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain replaces the regular grograin.  I also paper pierced around the edge of the image and added a brad to the sentiment.  The ribbon inside the button is a piece of retired Kiwi Kiss Twill.

I hope I have time to stamp today.  I'm neck deep in some baby shower invites that need to be mailed TODAY!  I really want to play in the ColourQ challenge.  I just LOVE the inspiration pieces that Arielle picks out!
