The next challenge for the Sisterhhood of Crafters is here and I am so happy to be the host! I hope you will play along with us and make a card that follows our theme for the next two weeks – Spring Flowers! I absolutely love making floral cards. This card, using Oh So Eclectic and Picture Perfect Birthday stamp sets, started from cleaning my craft table! Yep, I cleaned it up! Amazing!! I was tackling my paper pile and seeing Dapper Denim and Bermuda Bay together caught my imagination. Maybe they aren’t exactly “spring” but I just had to use them together! Where do you get your inspiration for cards?

My Secrets to Making This Picture Perfect Birthday Project


  • I love bundles! You can use them together or separately. Any tool that makes the stamped images stand out and adds texture is worth every penny, in my opinion. Using the Oh So Eclectic stamp set with its coordinating thinlits made this card so much easier to make. When you order the bundle, you will save 10% over the price for each item separately. Even better!!


  • Did you notice that basket weave embossing folder? This is one of those must-have tools and comes with a coordinating stamp set that is gorgeous! Can you believe that they are both FREE during Sale-A-Bration? If you haven’t ordered them yet, they are only available till March 31st when you place a qualifying order of $100 or more. This bundle will stay in my craft room forever!
