I am very excited. I finally got to use this stamp set that we were able to purchase through the sneak peak. It is a level three hostess set and I have been waiting for a moment to use it.

I have two birthdays this week and so thought this was the perfect opportunity to use the set.
You make me smile
happy birthdayfor you

Card: Riding Hood Red; Kiwi Kiss; Whisper White
Paper: earth elements
stamp sets: WIndow Dressing, Sprinkles, Bitty Birthday
Inks: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Kiwi Kiss, Pixie Pink, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: stampin’ write markers (bold brights), SNAIL, Corner Rounder Punch, Paper Cutter, Pastels, Blender Pens

The first pic I actually made last as I had the card and paper cut so I thought oh well make a third one. Because I made it last I had the benefit of making the others and I think I like it best with just the stripe of daisy paper down the middle. I made the white card smaller too.

The fiddliest bit on all three was cutting out the round window. I stamped the little girl in pink pirouette which was a bit light so I ended up using pastels to give her colour and then some colour for the shutters and window edges.

The second I changed the vases into presents by only stamping the vase part and not the flowers and the little girl in Tangerine Tango – a nice bold bright colour. The happy birthday was from Bitty Birthday stamped in Kiwi Kiss. I decided it looked to plain so I used the flowers from sprinkles in Riding Hood Red and More Mustard to match the floral paper.

The third I stamped the cat in Chocolate Chip for my friend cat and because she likes butterflies I stamped them in kiwi kiss and riding hood red. There is no birthday stamp in the window dressing set but I just coloured in the for you from “so thankful for you” to turn it into the birthday card.

The colours never seem to scan right but I am very happy for how these cards turned out. Now I have to make a christening card for this Sunday.
