A few simple birthday cards

I was in the mood to make some extremely simple cards. These cards are 3-1/2x6-3/8. That size is a ideal for including any sort of cheque or bills within them.

The first card features some PaperTreyInk stamps. With all the excitement surrounding their new releases, I was inspired to pull out that Green Thumb stamp set I had had to have. I actually have some more plans now that I took it back out. I found that this Scenic Route paper went fantastically with it. It reminded me of that buggy texture. I used the middle sized stems in this set to make little hop marks.

The second card features some gel-a-tin stamps. The happy birthday set is such a fun one to use. I went with one of my favorite colour combinations- chocolate, pumpkin, teal, and olive. I stamped the presents on 1-3/8 size squares, then framed those on 1-1/2 squares. The bows are chocolate coloured, I see now that I didn't add quite enough brightness when I was editing my photo, oops!
My exciting news this past week was that I am one of SCS's newest "dirty girls". Being on the Dirty Dozen team was always a dream of mine. You know, one of those dreams that your REALLY never expected to happen! I cannot wait for all the different themes to "attack" these next few months.


  1. Congratulations on becoming the newest dirty girl! Your work is always gorgeous and well deserving of such recognition.

  2. Great cards and congrats on being named to the DD totally deserve it!

  3. Congratulations Natasha! You are a great addition to the team.


  4. Congratulations. Your cards are amazing. You deserve this. I love the glitter card you posted today. Too cute.
