The Stamp Review Crew: Amazing Birthday Edition

Welcome back for another round of inspiration from the Stamp Review Crew This week we are featuring Amazing Birthday. I am #10 on the hop. You may have just left stop #9: the absolutely amazing Wendy Weixler. If so, you are in the right spot.  I hope you enjoy today’s hop! 

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips: Bright and Cheery
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ by 5-1/2″ long.

  • Bright and cheery colors! Instead of selectively inking the sentiment, I stamped it 4 times, once in each of the following colors:  Bermuda Bay, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Garden Green.  I then snipped out the various sections, and overlayed them onto the Bermuda Bay image.  I will use the leftover parts to create more of this style card.
  • Rosette! To add to the festive feel of this card, I added a rosette at the bottom of the banner.  Crafted from the Crushed Curry pattern from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper collection, this little rosette is topped with the Cake image, which has been stamped in Garden Green.
  • Bright in Bermuda! Confetti Celebration’s cheerful Bermuda Bay pattern works perfectly behind the banner.  It’s adds such a cheerful punch of color, don’t you think?

I’ll be the first to admit,  I THOUGHT this set was not my style.  It has sat in my pantry (remember…no studio for me…I stamp in my kitchen), since I received it free last year.  But you know what? I really had fun with this card.  This little gem will be winging its way to Missouri for Brady’s upcoming birthday.  It will be like sending sunshine in a card!

What do you think of my attempt at bright and cheery? Won’t you let me know in today’s comment?  And remember, if you ever have a question about the cards I create, or the techniques I use, I am only an email away.  Now scurry along to #1 on the hop, my uber-talented friend,  Mike Funke. If you get lost along the way, visit The Stamp Review Crew for a list of all the hoppers.  Until next time…

  6. Gorgeous card Ann. 3D in all its glory!

  7. Great colors for an autumn birthday and such a fun card!

  8. Amazing! Definitely outside your box, but probably right in Brady’s. too cool!

  9. It’s a bright and beautiful, cheerful card indeed. Simply love all the bright colors you had chosen. I’m sure Brady will love it and sending birthday wishes his way. Happy Birthday Brady

  10. The card is fabulous. I love the rosette. What width did you use to create it? Brady will love it.

  11. This is such a fun look, Ann! Love the bright colors and the clever way you pieced the individual sections together. (Three more amazing cards already partially made! Woo-hoo!) I love it when I find a stamp that I think is not my style and use it to make a card I really love. Brady will love it, too!

  12. No matter what or how you create, it turns out fabulous. Brady sure will be happy to receive this bright, cheerful, and loving card.

  13. What a great departure from “your style”! Only a departure because of the color choices, and the suspicious lack of pearls (this is said in the style of Sherlock Holmes in my head). Beautiful, as always Ann!

  14. What a great card, Ann! I love those colors and the rosette is fabulous!

  15. When I saw the subject line in my email stating what the stamp set was, I couldn’t wait to see what you’d do with it…because I don’t think of it as “your style”, either. But, as always, you knocked it out of the park…bright, cheerful, sunny, happy, and fun! Ann Schach style is–obviously–fabulous!

  16. Beautiful colors and great embellishment.

  17. It is definitely bright and cheery! I love the rosette and fun colors you used. Brady will love it!
