I thought this was a chance to further show off my April Simon Says Stamp card kit....the shiny Gold on Kraft designer paper is difficult to photograph because it is so reflective, but it is really beautiful and perfect for birthdays. In fact this kit comes with a birthday stamp set...and not a small one!
Can you guess the origin of the message? If you said stamp set...you would be wrong...It is one of several Rub-Ons! Surprised? I was...I haven't used Rub-Ons for years!
I added in the gold sequins from the Sequin Holiday Mix by Verve. Although the kit came with some very pretty card stock, I used SU's Coastal Cabana and Hello Honey.....love the way they look together!
Paper...Shiny Gold Designer paper (SSS April card kit), Designer Paper (Lullaby...SU), Hello Honey CS, Coastal Cabana CS
Embellishments...Rub-Ons (in kit...by Pinkfresh), Holiday Mix Sequins (Verve), Coastal Cabana Baker's Twine (SU)
Tools...Pierced Circle STAX (MFT Die-namics), Banners Framelits (SU), Chevron EF (SU), Balloon STAX (Die-namics)

Verve Stamps is well known for their Scripture verse stamps...plus I have always loved the fonts they use....The verse on my card is from Verve and captures my prayer for my friend and her husband.
The designer paper is from a 6x6 pad of Authentique called Favorite.
I made the banner from a border die called Stitched Borders. LOVE all the pierced and stitched dies...just adds so much!
I want to show you a very cool way of adding small embellishments to your cards....I learned this from Jennifer McGuire! The adhesive is not the secret (although it is very good and has a matte finish)...the real winner is the tip where the adhesive leaves the bottle in a tiny amount! I encourage you to watch Jennifer's video on You Tube called No Clog, Fine-Tip Liquid Adhesive Solutions.
Stamps...Scripture Medley 2 (Verve)
Paper...Authentique:Favorite, Neenah Solar White, Marina Mist (SU)
Ink...Marina Mist (SU)
Embellishments...Leavenworth Butterfly Trio (Memory Box), Shine Bright Sequins (Verve), Pearls (SU)
Tools...Pierced Rectangle STAX (Die-namics), Banner Framelits (SU), Stitched Border (Pretty Pink Posh)

I decided for the sketch that the word Angel could take the place of a message strip. The image is from Bugaboo...a digi-stamp image....isn't she cute?
The designer paper and large gold star are from the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit...with oodles to keep me busy!
Yellow Stickles decorate the stars near the angel and Wink of Stella Clear gives her wings and the tiny cloud a sparkly look...
I framed her inside a Die-namics Pierced Circle and popped it up inside a larger die-cut circle. Then wrapped some Gold Baker's Twine around the card....
STAMPS...Angel Digi Stamp (Bugaboo)
INK...Copics (pictured), Old Paper Distress ink (Ranger)
CARD STOCK...Pistachio Pudding (SU), X-Press It Blending card stock (Copic)
EMBELLISHMENTS...Gold Baker's Twine (SU), Yellow Stickles, Clear Wink of Stella, Star Sequins (stash)
TOOLS...Die-namics Pierced Circle STAX (MFT)

On my card, the flowers and the 2nd layer of the card use Perfect Plum (haven't used this color for quite awhile), followed by Elegant Eggplant (which I don't seem to ever use) on the polka dot strip across the die-cut circle. Blackberry Bliss (one of my favorite colors) was my choice for the message and the center of one of the flowers.
Here is a close-up of that center to show you how I clipped the edges to give it a little dimension.
Stamps...Flower Shop, For Being You (SAB)
Ink...Perfect Plum, Blackberry Bliss
Card stock...Perfect Plum, Regals Paper Stack
Tools...Perfect Polka Dots EF, Pansy Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch

The sequins are also from the 2013-2015 In Color collection of products....
The message on the flag is heat embossed with White embossing powder....the best way to bring out a message on darker card stock...
Enjoy your day!

Some of my favorite MFT stamps are from the Birdie Brown line, designed by Torico, who is a member of the MFT design team. I only used a "headshot" of the sweet little girl from the Sunflower Sweetheart stamp set.
Yes, I fussy-cut the sunflowers, but honestly it didn't take long at all! And believe it or not, I didn't know this stamp set has a matching set of dies! Yes, I'll be getting those soon!
It took me forever to choose the centers for the sunflowers...I finally chose some yellow pearls by Bo Bunny.
Here are the Copics I used....
Thanks for visiting my blog....you'll be seeing more of Birdie Brown! Promise!
