Bloom with Hope Birthday Card

Today I thought I would play with the "Bloom with Hope" stamp set.  There's a lot of fun stamps in that set and I've only used two of them!!  I think I need to venture out of the box a little more with that set!  Maybe later in the week.

I thought it would also be fun to play with the Blendabilities markers today too. I used the Pumpkin Pie colored ones.  I don't remember what the name of the set of markers are, sorry.  I'm not near my catalog right now.  I'll add it later if I remember!  I have a million things going on right now, UGH!!!

The base of my card is Old Olive.  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of decorative paper from the "Lullaby" package.  It looked like a fun piece of paper to play with!  To tie in the Pumpkin Pie color I used Pumpkin Pie card stock behind the Old Olive layer.

The words are from my computer.  I print out a whole sheet of them and punch from it as I need to.  I like to have them on hand.  They fit perfectly with the 1-1/4" circle punch.  I use that punch, the 1-3/8" punch, and the scalloped circle punch a lot on my cards, so I like to have words that fit those punched layers.  They're not always easy to find in the stamp sets so I decided to make up my own. You can find them for sale in my store.  There's 10 different greetings and 24 greetings per page. You will get a PDF download and you can print out as many as you like to use on the cards you make to give away or to sell.  

Ok, back to my card.  It was very fun to make, and SUPER fun to color.  I SO love those Blendabilities.  They are easy to work with and they don't stink like Sharpies do.  But the will bleed through the card stock so make sure whatever is under your paper is not anything important or it could be ruined.  Been there, done that!!!  And I did learn from it and have not done it since!!! LOL  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
