Today I am sharing a card using one of the new stamps from Quietfire's Happy Birthday Plain & Simple set. Lucky me, I just received the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and the Happy Birthday stamp fits perfectly inside of it! I also used scrap pieces of Graphic 45's Bird Song paper for the card. For anyone that knows me, I save every scrap of Graphic 45 paper unless I know that it is so small that it won't make a wee banner, a small trim piece or a corner for a photo...just imagine my paper scrap stash! I can't help doing that because the paper is so nice that I don't want to waste any of it.
Here is a closeup of the Happy Birthday in the banner die. I also used a blueish grey chalk on the banner to match the coloring in the birds' bodies. The photo makes the lace look a little weird because it was dyed using Tim Holtz's Barn Door and Scattered Straw but for some reason it looks pink in the photo. In person, it does match the color of the flowers in the papers.
The Quietfire stamp set is a new release this month. The set contains 8 cling stamps and is shipped on a plastic hardboard for neat storage. Below is an image of the other stamps in the set. I like the different fonts and sizes of the set- it makes it quite versatile. Right now there is also a special on new stamps at Quietfire: 20% off new stamps!
