The layout was inspired by the following card which I saw on display (no name of designer available) at the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Leadership Conference last January.

 STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper and Fabric Designer Brads make a bold statement for spring.  See Summer Smooches Special Offer Details.  NOTE:  The fabric brads are exclusively available April 1 – 30.

  • The flagged end on the sentiment was created using a 1″ Square Punch.  Watch my 1 Minute to WOW Tutorial for this handy flagged end trick!
  • I used an Island Indigo Stampin’ Write marker to color just the “happy birthday” portion of the stamp from “A Word for You” stamp set.
  • Crisp and pretty custom envelopes can be yours using the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the NEW Diagonal Scoring Plate.  Watch the Stampin’ Up! Video Tutorial below to see both tools in action.

  1. Beautiful card! I always look forward to your creations.
    Thanks you!

  2. Love the vibrancy of these cards Mary. So funky with a bucketload of class.

  3. Wow! Not just the color is knocking my socks off …. I LOVE this layout! Every close up shot shows how beautifully crisp those cut and punches edges are, and the fabric covered brads are something we all need to score. And lots of ’em cuz I hear they aren’t coming back to the main Catalog! This is going into my keeper collection of layouts for sure.

  4. the sketch is definitely in my “keeper” file, too. this card only took about 10 minutes to make from start to finish! hugs, m

  5. Wow! A joy for the eyes of the beholders. I love the paper and, especially, that adorable button in the middle of the flower.

  6. Fresh and Fun! Welcoming spring into our lives – thanks.

    Love, love, love anything summer! Thanks for always starting my day off with a ray of sunshine. I want to make/send this card to myself because my B-Day is in April! LOL

  8. Simply BEAUTIFUL card Mary – and my favorite part is the double row of holes you put across the bottom of the card. Such a simple touch and done so quickly with our Mat Pack. NICE JOB Girlfriend!

  9. I am swooning over these colors. Very pretty.

  10. Hi, Mary,

    Glad you enjoyed my card entry from Leadership! Your version is the bomb with the gorgeous new DSP and brad.

  17. So cute and colorful. Great layout too!

  18. Love your card! I just pre-ordered the Summer Smooch goodies and really wasn’t sure how I’d use them. It wasn’t until I saw this card that I realized just how 60’s retro the patterns are. Now I’m in love with it and can hardly wait to get my order! TFS!
