Hello stampers. Have you ever skipped over a stamp set in the catalog thinking it wasn’t that special? Then you see some cards that someone else made with it and you wonder, how did you not see that beauty right away? Well. I had that exact thing happen with the stamp set Perennial Birthday. I should have known better. I am an avid gardener and I LOVE perennials. So this one should have been calling my name!
One of my team members, Alison Reid, made a beautiful card with this set for one of our regular stamping events called Fab Four. I loved that first card. Here it is:
Isn’t it beautiful? I just love the colours Alison used here, pool party, berry burst and lemon lime twist. The story gets better. Alison made me four more cards in exchange for an embossing folder. Yes, I think I got the better end of the deal. I was so inspired that I decided to build a class around it.
The date of the class is way far away, not until May 9 with two time slots at 1pm and 7pm. I am offering the class now so that if you order the products needed for the class before March 31 then you will get a free saleabration item. You can even order online and then I will send you all the parts for the cards and a link to a video showing you exactly how to put them together! How awesome is that. There is only one requirement, you have to order with the host code EGVK3DTB. The class will include the Perennial Birthday stamp set and the Perennial Birthday Project kit. This amazing kit includes all the supplies to make 16 birthday cards as well as a beautiful box with dividers to keep your cards organized by category. If you sign up for the class you will only pay for the product but you will get to make the following three cards for free!! I love this idea.
Don’t you just love the colours on this card? Marina Mist and Lemon Lime Twist. It is perfect for spring. The stamparatus will help so much with this card taking all the stress out of lining up those sentiments.
What a lovely clean and simple card. Alison used some of my favourite products on this card: stitched shape framelits, metallic edge berry burst ribbon and Petal Passion paper. Wow!! The flower was stamped in Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder. Then sponge daubers were used to sponge ink over top of the embossed image. So pretty!
Metallic thread, rhinestones, dimensionals, it’s all in the little details that makes this card shine. Pear pizzazz, melon mambo and whisper white are perfect for spring. The last card will not be included in the class, but you will be able to make this card later at home, especially if you are the winner of the celebrate you thinlets that will be a draw available only to class participants including those ordering online!
There are lots of things happening on this last card. Three different sized circles cut with the stitched shape framelits. The Celebrate You thinlets cut from our silver foil paper and the smoky slate card front run through the Big Shot with the Petal Pair textured impressions embossing folder. Sign up for the class and you might win the framelits or this card!
I am so happy to have discovered that this last card was the brainchild of Selina Merali. Absolutely lovely work Selina. If you want to see her card on her blog, here is the link!
Don’t forget to use the host code 6G3F2TC9 if you order online. Have a super rest of your weekend, I hope you were inspired by Alison’s cards. She received her inspiration from many sources online and from her own very creative brain. I am thankful to have her on my team.
