"Happy Birthday"


Here is a card we made at my stamp camp. Cased from several people on SCS. It seems to be a popular layout and design. We changed the colors up on ours. Isn't it cute? What I like best about this card is the layout and that you can make the same card with different colors. As soon as I get this set I am going to do that. Most of my stamps are outlined stamps that you have to color. Since I am going to be teaching classes, I am going to start acquiring more solid stamps. They look just as good and they make it easier and faster to make cards. I never realized that it would make such a difference. When I would go to classes or to stamp camp. I thought, how cute are these cards, and they were so easy. It never dawned on me that they were solid stamps. DUH!!! I always buy the “cutesy” stamps. You know those ones you have to color. Which, don’t get me wrong, I like coloring and I do like the stamps. But I am going to try to get some more solid ones. I think the class will thank me for not having to color every card.

I just recently made the same connection about solid stamps vs. the line drawn stamps. It is really so much easier to use the solid ones, and I've found that I am drawn to the solid ones over and over again. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. I sort of felt like a cheater! Love your card, by the way.
