I used the same as above on this with the exception of the large stamped flower and scallop square. My cuz stamped and made these elements and gave me a little pack of them to use on my cards. I'm not sure where the stamps are from or the scallop square and papers... :) but I used them to make a couple cards.

Only change here is I used Close to Cocoa (retired) ink and paper. The ribbon is a scrap of Chocolate Chip grosgrain.

And another one... again, using the Close to Cocoa and a More Mustard scrap for the flower punch.

And a last Birthday with a similar color scheme as the candle one above. I used the Bring on the Cake set and the Party This Way set. I love the balloons!! The color scheme is Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Mellow Moss, and Barely Banana.

Quick Gift for a Friend and Some Birthday Cards

I wanted to make a quick monogrammed dozen cards for a friend and so I cut a bunch of paper to front the cards (just from my random paper box!) and added circles in coordinating colors. I punched a Whisper White curly label punch and stamped an "S" from the Letter It alphabet set in a coordinating color of ink. They turned out pretty darn cute!


For these quick birthday cards, I just used scrap paper cut into strips for the candles and various leaf or flower petal stamps for the flames. Super simple and very cute!

A great way to use up scraps!!
