Birthday Cards

I made these two cards yesterday for friends who are celebrating birthdays today. A big hi to Jane and Tina. I decided to make some cards and then was informed of two birthdays for today so the cards I made and gave them were hot off the press! I also wanted to have a play with my Eastern Blooms set which I hadn't had a chance to bring out over the holidays. Yay, kids back to school today!!

This first card was inspired by this card I found on Splitcoaststampers site here .

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Regal Rose and Rose Red; WorldWin Double Mates Grassy Green

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Occasional Greetings

Inks: Stampin' Up! Close to Cocoa, Pink Passion

Embellishments: Chocolate ribbon, brass brads

This next card was a CASE card from the talented Lin Mei Yap (SU Demonstrator) and you can see her card here:

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White

Stamps: Eastern Blooms; Occasional Greetings

Inks: Stampin! Up! Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa; Green Galore

Pens: Stampin' Up! Stampin! Write Markers - Close to Cocoa; Pink Passion; Green Galore
