Pinwheels and Popsicles!

Hasn't this been a fun July Release?  I know you've enjoyed it as much as we have in bringing it to you, but it's not over quite yet!  We're so excited to bring you one more stamp set, and it's a fantastic new Birthday and Celebration set today!   We think it's the cutest thing ever, and we know when you see it you'll agree!  Introducing....

   PinwheelsGraphic   

Light it up and help those in your life to wish big! This set is perfect to send a little note of celebration in an envelope. From "cool" images to "sweet" sentiments, Pinwheels and Popsicles illustrated by Marcella Hawley is the perfect birthday stamp set! Set measures 4" by 6" and offers five main images and seven fun-filled coordinating sentiments.

I'm in LOVE with this set!  I've been longing for a fun, whimsical birthday and celebration set and this one SURE delivers!  I already know it's going to be an all-time favourite set for me.


How pretty is that slice of birthday cake!?  I love it!  And of course a cake like this has to be chocolate.  There's just nothing better in my opinion :)  

I stamped the image onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and paired it with these very fun MME papers - Come Away with Me.  I just love the colors!  Very Mary Engelbreit-ish.  I die cut out the cake with a simple Spellbinders Standard Circle, stamped the sentiment with Nautical Blue Memento ink, then placed it onto a Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Hourglass die.  I used an Edgeability border die to get the rounded edge on the right.  


Then simple accents, seambinding, a Color Made Easy Sunflower Button, some twine, some Teresa Collins Enamel Dots, and all placed on a base of Color Made Easy - Sunflower Cardstock that I aged a bit with Ranger Antique Linen ink to soften the yellow and be a better match for the designer paper.  Isn't it a perfect birthday card!?
