Stampin'Up! Best of Birthdays

Good morning my dear readers,

Isn't it funny that the first stamp set Stampin'Up! released through their 25 year Anniversary Celebration is for a celebration, Best of Birthdays. Who doesn't need more birthday cards? Seems to me every time I need one ready for a certain person, I have none done! Grr! :S

This year I've been a bit more proactive making different types of Birthday cards more often. This, hoping to have the "perfect" card for that special someone when the birthday comes. Early this week I got a couple of hours to play and relax with my cute stamps.

So this is what I came up with...what do you think?
Different, eh? Honestly...it all happened cause I had an already die cutted Whisper White piece of CS in the shape of this flower and it literally fell on top of these two papers. :) The things that inspire me!
What inspires you?

First I cut a piece of 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" Pool Party CS
Then I cut a 4" x 4" Whisper White CS.
I placed my Floral Frames Framelits in the center of the WW CS and cut using my Big Shot.
Next, I embossed that same piece of CS with my new Cloudy Day Embossing Folder  (Isn't it cute?)
Last I adhered two different pieces of Sycamore Street DSP (SAB brochure) overlapping, to a piece of Summer Starfruit CS just a tiny bit bigger than my 4" x 4" CS (I adhered it, then cut...just my way)
I matted that with a  4 1/8" x 4 1/8" Real Red CS.
I then placed my WW embossed and die cutted piece with Stampin'dimensionals on top of all.
Stamped "Celebrate" from Best of Birthdays set on WW CS with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink and punched with the Modern Label punch.
Die cut a piece of Real Red CS with the Apothecary Accents Framelit, embossed with Fancy Fan EF
Punched a piece of Summer Starfruit with the Scallop Oval Punch and adhered everything with Stampin'Dimensionals.
Yikes! I put a lot of steps into this little card...how fun! Not my simple card of the week, but indeed fun to make. Hope you like it and get inspired to go make beauty around you.
Thanks for coming to visit! It is a joy to have you here. Go ahead and find other cool samples with this stamp set under the label "Birthday" here to the right on the sidebar. :)
So... What inspires you to create?
Would love to hear from you
Creative Blessings to you,
Jessica U.
