I have used one of Jane Gill's new single stamps for the theme this week & really had fun with it. Start by printing the Birthday Doodles stamp twice onto lemon card. Colour  both prints with Sakura Stardust pens. I have then cut out the letters from one print & decoupaged them onto the other print. Go mad then & decorate with ribbon bows & buttons! The printed buttons that you will see come from the Patch Alphabet set from Francoise Read. Cut free hand around the printed piece & layer onto blue & red card. Print the button collection onto yellow paper & give it the Crafty Edger treatment using the ribbon border cassette. I have threaded the border using a medley of ribbons, tying bows at regular spaces. Mount the whole piece onto the red card blank. A fun & colourful card & just one design from the limitless versatility of this stamp!


  1. Go mad indeed, colourful and friendly greeting! Nice image, I must say.

  2. Lovely card - I like the decoupaged greeting.
