IBS New Release - It's Your Birthday


Today we are continuing the birthday celebration at Inspired By Stamping and showcasing the cards made with the It's Your Birthday stamp set which will be available October 10.

I used a bit of grey as a neutral to anchor the sentiment panel, and WHAT a sentiment!  It's the Vintage Birthday stamp, but more on that later in the release.  (I love it!)

I followed one of the four color combos offered by Joanna in today's contest over on her blog

I've used the It's Your Birthday stamp set to add the cute, tiny images to the Whimsical Banners, using tiny IBS roses in between.  The banners were cut on my Silhouette Cameo using Joanna's FREE cut files that she generously offers with many of her stamp sets.  The papers used are the new-release Girl Digital Papers and Printables which will also be available October 10.

Isn't that sentiment just GORGEOUS?  It can be yours free, so check below for details.  We will be showcasing it in another couple of days, too.  And it was also cut on the Silhouette with the cut file that comes with it.  Joanna is so awesome about including these with her stamps!

The ribbon is hand-dyed seam binding, and the rose is another IBS rose, one of the larger two-tone ones, that I've tipped with microfine glitter.

I've stamped the inside with the cute little banner from the set plus a greeting from the A Lovely Birthday set which will be showcased later this week.  See how these stamp sets mix and match?  They truly are among the most versatile sets in my entire collection.

A bit of cheesecloth for added texture, some pearls and a green flourish finish this card.  Thank you for joining me in our ongoing birthday celebration and do head over to visit the other designers to see their lovely creations.
