Happy Birthday with Quatrafancy Window Sheet

When CASE'ing (Copy and Share Everything), I usually change certain elements or part of the design.  This time, I copied almost everything exactly...except for the ribbon and the Subtle buttons instead of the Brights!  But then I did the card again in different colors. 
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Inks: Crumb Cake
Paper:  Crumb Cake , Quatrafancy Specialty (retired)
Other:  Natural Trim ribbon (retired), Blossom punch, Pansy punch, Linen Thread, Subtles Designer Buttons, Bitty Banners Framelits, Glue Dots

Thank you to Kay Kalthoff for the inspiration for this card!

Vivid Vases and Blendabilities Markers

At our recent team meeting, I got to use the new Blendability Markers for the first time on this card designed by Beth Ann Wilson!  They are alcohol ink markers made for blending and shading. Each pack comes with a dark, medium, and light shade that coordinate perfectly with Stampin' Up! ink pads and cardstock.   Note:  Use with a Memento Ink Pad to prevent smearing of your stamped image!

Stamps:  Vivid Vases
Ink:  Memento Ink Pad, Blendabilities Markers
Paper: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry
Other:  Fancy Fan Embossing Folder

Happy Birthday Butterfly Wishes

The sentiment is from the Simply Sketched stamp set and the flower is from the Bright Blossoms set.  I wanted to use the flower from the Summer Silhouettes set, but I couldn't find it....may have loaned it to my mom?  Let me know, Mom, if you have it!  :)

Paper:  Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise

You Make Me Happy

This title makes me want to start singing the song Happy by Pharrell Williams from the movie Despicable Me 2.  You can listen to it here: 

I love this stamp set!  The watercolor stamp, which I used for the background has a slight texture to it, which makes a fabulous stamped image.
