Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Birthdays: Amazing Birthday

Good morning!  What a difference a couple of days makes, it's much cooler and almost fall-like.  By no means I'm not complaining since any break from the humidity is welcome, besides with the release of the new Annual Catalog yesterday it's hot enough all on it's own.  Really, have you checked out the catalog, there's so much I love I can't wait to get my next order for lots of new goodies to play with.  Today the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog design team is sharing lots of great ideas for all the upcoming birthdays you have, I never seem to have enough birthday cards.  For today's card I decided to mix old and new for lots of fun, including several of the new 2015-2017 In Colors, which are fabulous! 

The cardbase is Tip Top Taupe and then I added a piece of Soft Sky cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  During last months preorder period demonstrators were able to purchase select items from the new catalog early so we could begin working with them (love that perk of being a demonstrator!!) and the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack was one those items and I love all the beautiful colors and prints included, so fun.  I created two flags using the DSP and the new Triple Banner Punch.  For the greeting I used the Amazing Birthday stamp set and using Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the stamp before stamping it on Whisper White cardstock, and then cut it out using the Big Shot and Banner Framelits.  The final touch was to add the bow so I used the 1/4" Handheld Punch to punch a hole in the top and then threaded a piece of 1" Watermelon Wonder Lace Trim through and tied in a knot.

This card and colors just makes me smile, which let's be honest is the whole point of birthday cards.  I know I'm going to really have fun with these new In Colors, and so will you so make sure to order them soon so you don't have to wait to play.
