Stampin’ Up! Quick Cards With Birthday Basics!

By | 06/12/2013

Oh man!  The UPS woman came and delivered my first order out of the new catalog!  Where do you start?  I’m one of those people that needs to have my choices narrowed down for me.  Just show me two things to choose from.  Any more than two things and it’s too difficult.  The papers are so gorgeous.  I actually love the new color families.  I just feel like they make so much more sense now.  The colors added into the color families are such pretty choices.  This Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper is just a perfect example.  I love these color combinations!

birthday_basicsI made two quick cards in just a few minutes.  As soon as I saw this paper, it reminded me of the pennant parade stamp set and coordinating punch.  Upside down, the pennants make great party hats!!!  I’ve also been looking for a fabulous excuse to use the Label Love stamp set and matching Artisan Punch!  How fun are these colors?!
