Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Endless Birthday Wishes, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU - Real Real, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Little Letters Framelits
Accessories: SU Card - Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point
On the smaller piece of white card I used the framelits to cut out the word "Happy" and stamped birthday beneath. On the larger white panel I stamped the striped image from Gorgeous grunge following a rainbow pattern, then I attached the smaller panel with dimensional tape. The whole panel was layered onto yellow card and then attached to the blue card base. On the inside I stamped a birthday cake and sentiment. Such a fun card and would work in monochromatic colours too.
Next we made a very non-traditional baby card CASEd from a card by Martha Inchley. We used two of the new in colours - Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss, although you could easily make this card using traditional blue and pink.

Accessories: SU Card - Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey; SU DP - Moonlight; SU Punch - 1¾" Circle; SU Ribbon - Blackberry Bliss; SU Markers - Black, Pumpkin Pie
It was so easy to do the little duck, I inked the image with Hello Honey, wiped off the bill and then coloured the bill with an orange marker and stamped. I added a tiny dot for the eye and then cut it out with the matching die. I do like these bold, non-traditional colours.
Next we made a screen card - I've seen so many fabulous versions on the Internet and thought it would be hard to make, actually it's not bad at all. This one is CASEd from Frenchie Martin.

The last card we made is my favourite - I just love this set!!
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Kinda Eclectic
Inks: SU - Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Twist
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Banner Framelits
Accessories: SU Card - Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Whisper White; SU Punch - Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly
This card is CASEd from Heather's card. I love the collage effect of these stamps, they work together perfectly. On the white panel we stamped the sun and leaf images and on some scrap white card stamped the two butterflies. The banner was made by stamping the dotty image and sentiment and then cutting out with the banner framelit. The butterfly is layered, has a pearl decoration and adhered with dimensional tape. The sentiment flag is attached with tape. On the inside I added a couple of butterflies, but left space for a message.
I have to admit that when I first saw the new in colours, I wasn't taken by them. However, having used them on these cards I think they're fab! I particularly love Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow.
That's it for now.
