Hi Stamping Friends!
There is just one week left to sign up for my June Stamp-of-the-Month Class Kit featuring the lovely & versatile Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set! Today, I'm sharing another pair of cards that you can create with the class.
But first, I wanted to give a shout-out to my Too Cool Stamping girls softball team!
I sponsor my niece Ellie's middle school team, which is also coached by my brother-in-law, Colin. I have so much fun watching them play and cheering them on! Here's a fun action shot I captured of Ellie at bat. Yesterday, she was selected to play in the all-star tournament...woot, woot!
I love that the girls have an awesome "Too Cool" chant on the break of their huddles...check it out!
Good luck, girls, as you head in the final weeks of the season, the All-Stars and the tournament!
And, another shout-out to my younger niece Sophie, who plays in the grade 4-5 league. She was also selected as an all-star! Way to go!

Happy Birthday Stamp-of-the-Month Class
Happy Birthday Gorgeous Floral Accents Cards!
The large Happy Birthday die-cut looks fabulous with floral accents courtesy of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set! Those bitty blooms really bring the look together! Let's take a closer look...
Background Basics—I began this card with a 1" x 5-1/4" strip of the fun Berry Burst striped Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper adhered to a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock. I layered a 4" x 2" piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock across the center and mounted the entire background onto a Whisper White card base.
Birthday Background—I die-cut a 2-7/8" x 4-3/4" Lots of Labels shape from Whisper White as the focal point foundation. Then I decorated the top and bottom decorative edges with stamps from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set:
- Stamp the larger flower outline image in Berry Burst at the top and bottom centers.
- Stamp the large solid flower image in Flirty Flamingo stamped off one time over the large outline flowers.
- Stamp the smaller flower outline image in Berry Burst on either side of the large flower.
- Stamp the small solid flowers in Sweet Sugarplum stamped off one once over the small outline flowers.
- Stamp the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist around the flowers; some are stamped off once.
Delightful Die-Cut—I used the Happy Birthday Thinlit to die-cut the sentiment from Berry Burst card stock. It's adhered by lightly sponging Multipurpose Adhesive onto the back. I like to do the sponging on a Silicone Craft Sheet for easy cleanup!
Finishing Touches—I added Pearl Jewels to each of the flower centers, then popped up the label with Dimensionals.
Two Cool—The second card is the identical design in a different color combination. I used the Peekaboo Peach chevron pattern of Foil Frenzy DSP on a Peekaboo Peach background, then added a Lemon Lime Twist panel across the center.
The Happy Birthday is die-cut from Tangerine Tango. The large flower is created with a Berry Burst outline and Flirty Flamingo stamped off solid center. The smaller flowers are stamped with Tangerine Tango outlines and Peekaboo Peach stamped off solid centers.
