25th Anniversary Blog Tour - Best of Birthdays


Welcome to the RemARKable 25 Years with Stampin' Up! Blog Tour!  You may have arrived here from Lee Bradford's blog.  What a great job she did with her projects!

When Stampin' Up! announced at the Leadership Conference about the "Best of 25 Years" stamp sets, I got really excited!  As part of their 25-year anniversary celebration, they're bringing back some favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!

January's theme is "Best of Birthdays."  I've made three projects with this stamp set.  Here's the first one:

I used one of the shapes from the Apothecary Framelits to create a layered look.  See here how I did it.
Here's the second one:


This last one is a copy of one that we saw demonstrated at Leadership.  I used it in my stamp clubs this month.  Our theme for the month was "tools."  I changed things up a bit from the original card and used my Color Spritzer tool to add some splashes of Garden Green.
Here's a closer look.
 
I'll be glad to answer any questions about my projects.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Next up is the uber-talented Tamra Davis of http://www.thecardladies.com/.  Click on her link or on the image below to see her creations:

Happy Stamping!

Great Cards! I'm really drawn to the last card but they are such great ideas.

Wow, Susan. They are all fantastic. Not sure which is my favorite! I love how you used the Patio Party Paper on the first one though.

Wow your cards are beautiful Susan. I love your last one with all of the different elements you used. I need to start doing things like this.
