Great Impressions Jammie Sunday

 Happy Birthday!

It's taking me a wee bit of time to get used to changing over to Jammie day Sunday- but here I am!

Today I am showing off this colorful birthday card I made using Friendship Grows. I left off the sentiment because I wanted this to be a birthday card. I actually had a different stamp in mind when I started this card, but this little  stamp kept calling my name-"use me, use me instead"!

I have used this image HERE for Valentines Day and HERE with the full sentiment, so you can see it is a very versatile stamp!

I saw this very fun technique on the Silhouette blog where you can use pens in  your cutting machine to get the dashes around the edges of your cardstock. It was not my steady (ahem) hand drawing those dashes - but a  very  fun design indeed.

I do not have washi tape as suggested in the tutorial, so I used strips of bright and cheerful Bo Bunny paper which included the Happy Birthday Sentiment.  The scalloped base was also cut on my Silhouette.

I hope you can take a few minutes and check out the Great Impressions Stamps Blog. We post lots  new inspiration during the week!

See you next week!

Cute, CUTE with the scallop edges and pretty background you made. Thanks for explaining about the silhouette, and providing the link. These little guys are adorable. It's a birthday flower! LOL instead of a birthday cupcake! Your coloring and shading, as always are so vibrant. I must learn to use brighter colors. Speaking of which, your paper sampler arrived. Thank you very much, Sue. You are right, there is a big difference in the feel of the paper and I can hardly wait to try it out. I clicked on your other links for the cute mousie samples, but the first link is inactive. Thought you might want to know. Thanks again for sharing your darling card - and the link over to GI. hugs, de
