Stampin' Up! Brushed Blooms Happy Birthday Card

Stampin' Up! Brushed Blooms Card Ideas - Birthday Cards - The Stamping Nook - Krista-Cleary-Yagci

The Stampin' Up! Brushed Blooms Stamp Set and coordinating Beautiful Brushtrokes Dies offers you wonderful creative opportunities: containing stunning roses in bloom and motifs with a brushstroke-like design. With just this single stamp set, both modern and romantic looks are achievable. Additionally, sentiments celebrating friendship make yours the perfect card for many occasions. The sentiment on the front of this card -- For My Forever Friend -- can be used for a multitude of occassions. I plan to use this as a birthday card (I'll stamp a birthday sentiment on the inside and write a personal note to my friend), but another way it can be used is to show gratitude, just say hi, to tell your friend you're thinking about them, etc. It is a versatile stamp set and card.

The Brushed Blooms Stamp Set includes thes sentiments/greetings:

  • For My Forever Friend

  • Happy Birthday

  • Just Because

  • You Deserve It

  • Let's Paint the Town as Long as I'm Home by 9:00

Spring Blog Hop

I made this pastel colored card for the Spring Blog Hop. I thought the light, subtle colors brought the feeling of spring to mind.
