Kelly's Stamping Friends - Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday to my gorgeous friend Kelly Kent!
If I had never taken up this hobby I would never have met her! I'm so glad that I have found great friends with Stampin' Up! (I just wish we all lived closer for more crafty times together)

You have hopped on over from the best hugger in Stampin' Up! that I have ever met, the lovely Monique Fielder

I made this card for Kelly (hopefully she has it before the hop!)

The idea came from two demo friends who made me a gorgeous coffee tag card and posted it to me as I couldn't make onstage last November over east.
Thankyou Vicki McBride and Sue Arthur you two are just gorgeous x

I made this card with one whole sheet of cardstock for the base and matted each panel with cardstock and DSP. I think the Share What You Love Specialty DSP in the middle of the card was gorgeous enough without adding any more stamping!

I really hope Kelly loves her card and has an amazing birthday.

  • Stamps: Love What You Do, (Kelly's name was the Make a difference stampset) and sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet
  • Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, Stayz On and Old Olive
  • Card: Whisper White, Berry Burst, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Share What You Love Specialty DSP
  • Tools: Stitched Circles Framelits & Petals and More Thinlits with the big shot
  • Embelishments:  Dimensionals, White Bakers Twine, Ruffled Berry Burst Ribbon, Pearlized Doily, Share What You Love pearls and wink of stella
