Every day is someone’s birthday, and who doesn’t love receiving a handmade birthday card?

Since my birthday is in May, I edited the bottom of this post to include my exciting news for the month of May.

Featuring: Hand-Lettered Prose Dies, Ornate Layers Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Subtle Textured embossing, Woven Threads Sequins; #birthdaycards #handlettered #paperwords #happyb.day ##handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #lastchance #retiringproducts #stampinup #cardchallenges #colorcombos #cardthemes

Happy b*day


Using die-cut letters is so much fun, and these have been a favorite from the Hand-Lettered Prose die set. The “dot” is a Bouquet Bunches Die. Both sets are two of my favorite “Last-Chance” products, so order soon if you HAVE to have them! Clicking on the pictures in my Product List will take you to them.

I cut the letters from scraps of Designer Paper, and double layered them for thickness. I used matching colors of cardstock for layering, and you’ll find the four colors named in my Product List. Aren’t they pretty together?


The background is Whisper White Cardstock, cut with an Ornate Layers Die, and embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.


“Happy” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die.

Finally, I HAD to add some sequins, and the Woven Threads Sequins matched the colors perfectly!


Today’s theme was inspired by TGIF.

And, the colors are from Fab Friday.


Now for exciting news!

First of all, this month’s Host Code gift is something I know you’ll want in your collection. It’s the new, fabulous, Ornate Floral Embossing Folder! I’ve already used it on a number of my cards, and it adds gorgeous texture. Just add my Host Code (DGMYPXET) in the box provided when you order a minimum of $50.00 in the month of May, and I will send the embossing folder to you in June.


Secondly, I’m having a drawing for two items: the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set AND the Small Bloom Punch. Your name will be entered in the drawing when you place a minimum $100.00 order in May.


This is Stampin’ Up’s list of retiring items, so click here, then click on “Last-Chance Products” in my store. Order those bundles now while you get the 10% savings, and earn the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder from me, plus a chance to win the Small Bloom Punch and Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set.


Last, but not least, if you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog sometime in May, with ordering beginning June 3rd. The catalog happens to have a brand new stamp set (page 51) that coordinates with the Small Bloom Punch!

Thanks so much for stopping by. My birthday is in May, so I’m especially happy to have you celebrating with me!
