Here's a basic all-purpose birthday card that is easy to make -- and you can substitute any favorite color combo. Supplies Used: Papertreyink Green Thumb set for the flowers and center dot; Impression Obsession WP17 Sentiments II for Warm Birthday Wishes (3 different clear stamps); Limited Edition Art Warehouse Ribbons and Lace clear stamp set (to make the faux ribbon pieces); Stampin Up Kraft and Night of Navy cardstocks and classic inks; Stampin Up Sage Shadow classic ink; and the shiny green mini brads are from Prima Accents in Meadow purchased from Paperosity. About the Sentiments II set, you get a boat load of clear words for $17.00 and they stamp beautifully. However, the beginning and end of each word is surrounded by a bit of extra "photopolymer" -- a/k/a acrylic -- but way stronger. In order to get the words nice and close to one another, trim the beginning and end of each word prior to placing on your clear block. I had to experiment about 10 times to get just the right placement -- the downside to clear stamps. But, the combinations I can make with this set are truly huge!!
