Stamp on Saturday

Would you believe that today is the first day this week I have been able to sit and just stamp! I did get a crafting fix on Thursday when three lovely ladies joined me to make a Birthday Card Organiser Book and since the Stamp with Us Challenge this week is Birthdays I thought I would show you my example project and a card I have made to go in it.

Now when it comes to birthdays you just ‘have’ to have cake! So I have used the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set in both projects. They appear everywhere on my Birthday Card Organiser Book, and also feature on this birthday card. Now this card is for a lovely friend of mine who wants to emphasise there being a lot of something always says there are truck loads so for her birthday I hope she has truck loads of cakes!
The truck comes from the Loads of Love Stamp Set, and its wheels are made from the centre of one of the stamps in the Circle of Friendship set while the sentiment is from WOW flowers. The papers are the Sweet Always Papers and the Tea Party Papers – its strange how fitting the names of the papers are sometimes for some people! Colours used are Old Olive, Almost Amethyst, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Whisper White.
I am also very pleased with this bow – as you may have noticed I don’t have many bows on my cards as I am often not that please with how they turn out. I found this method worked well for me – I am planning a little feature on different ways to use ribbon so will tell you all about how I made it then. I think this little flower button is sooooooo cute – it’s from the Button Latte set.

Now until my friend’s birthday this card will live in my Birthday Card Organiser book.

I have a page for each month and an additional page for those miscellaneous cards we need from time to time. The front and the back were both decorated with the lovely stand of cupcakes in the Crazy for Cupcakes set with the balloons stamped in So Saffron in the Very Vanilla background. If you would like more details on how to make this book please contact me by email -

I am now off to have a look at everyone else’s entries for the challenge before going to see J in a play tonight
See you tomorrow
Happy Crafting
