March Stamp of the Month ~ Birthday Time

What a fun stamp set we have for you this month!
Did you come from Haley Dyer's blog? Then you're on the right path. This is one big circle so just keep clicking the link at the end of each post to continue to the next blog. You're going to find lots of inspiration along the way!

Making a card with banners is a great way to use up scraps of paper that accumulate. Here I used some of the Chelsea Gardens papers and it made a nice look, don't you think?

Hint: to make the dovetail ends for the banner you can make a snip in the middle of the piece. Then cut from the corner to the top of the snip. Now you have a dovetail! Another way is to gently fold the paper in half then snip at an angle for the dovetail. Unfold and smooth out the paper.

For the design of the card I used our new Make It from Your Heart book pattern book. Each design has an easy yet detailed cutting guide to help you create your masterpiece!

  5. Beautiful card, I like the splatter behind the sentiment!

  6. I spent some time admiring the water color splattering you made as the background and then realized it was a stamped image. Love it and great job!
