Classic Happy Birthday

We all need birthday cards, right?  Do you over think your project sometimes, because I know I do. 

Here is a great one that you can make without much thought (not that you want to lessen the sentiment of the card), but you know what I mean.  The best part too, make it in any color you want.

Here's my classic birthday card:


I am absolutely Obsessed with that font!!!

It is from the Go To Greetings stamp set and what I love is the basic greetings (Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Just A Note, Thank You) are in several different font styles and sizes.  What a fabulous idea.  The elegant border is cut from the Distressed Gold 12x12 specialty paper, using the Elegant Border Dies - which is an Online Exclusive Item.

#HB2U Birthday Card

Hello there... 

So we have another teenager on our hands!  My nephew turned 13 and I can hardly believe it.  He is a very energetic and curious boy and Auntie enjoys our time together.  He is still wanting to hang out with me, with an occasional snuggle, I take what I can get.  The snuggles are lessening so I adore those that I do get. 

Just like pictures, I take them when I can get them.  Ha! Ha!  Kids are so funny... 


For his birthday, he wanted to spend the weekend with me.  So when we got to celebrate with family and friends, I made this card inspire by a card I saw made by SU Demo Amanda Mertz.  Inside he found thirteen one dollar bills (yes, only $13 as I spent a small fortune the weekend he was with  

#HB2U #stampwithlisabrown

I used Thick Basic White card stock for the card base and Basic Black for the mat.  I die cut the #HB2U out of this black mat to save paper.  I also die cut each one three times to layer up and it made them kind of pop.  I highly recommend using our Adhesive Sheets and the letters and numbers are thin.  The adhesive sheets made it a breeze to adhere. 

I cut random angles from the Glorious Gingham 6x6 Designer Series Paper.  Not much stamping on this one, except my happy birthday sentiment inside, but I like how it turned out.   Hope you do to.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Its All About Color


Hello!  And welcome to our June blog hop, It's All About Color.  

Color... Stampin' Up! has introduced us to some of the most beautiful colors, and even brought back some favorites.  So I thought it was fitting with our blog hop that I feature the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper called Bright & Beautiful.  It features so many great colors.  AND.... this DSP is 15% OFF during the month of June. 

DSP Bright & Beautiful

#bright&beautiful #stampwithlisabrown

I used returning color, Berry Burst for the card base.  I then took one piece of the Bright & Beautiful DSP and cut it in 1/2" strips and adhered on top of a piece of Basic White CS that is 4 x 5-1/4". 

The Happy Birthday die is from Wanted To Say die set.  The detailed berry happy birthday and the yellow/white background are both cut from other designs of DSP from Bright & Beautiful.  I adhere those to a piece of Berry Burst CS and fussy cut around.  

The Gingham ribbon was colored with new color Lemon Lolly Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  

I hope you like all the Colors!!!

Queen Bee Bundle

Welcome to today's post. 

Featuring from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog:  it's the Queen Bee Bundle!

This one of my favorite bundles in the new mini catalog.  It also was inspired by million dollar achiever, Laura Milligan!  I think she has great taste and she helped design this stamp and bundle set for her milestone achievement.  The bundle's dies have a little of everything (a bee, foliage, a label,  honeycombs and more).  


I used Old Olive, Basic Black and Basic White for card stock. 

The bee and words are heat embossed in black to add some shine along with the embellishments. 

Tip:  use Adhesive Sheets when die cutting the honeycombs
