Creation Station Blog Hop - "They Say It's Your Birthday..."

I couldn't get that song out of my head while I was creating the projects for today's blog hop. And now you are singing it to yourself too, am I right?! LOL There has been a few birthdays in the family over the past few weeks, so birthday cards have been on the brain lately.

One of the wonderful (and free I might add!) Sale-A-Bration sets I received lately was Avant Garden. I knew it was the perfect time to get it inked up! Using Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi inks, I created a fun floral paper. One single floral stem stamped on an oval Stitched Framelit creates a simple but straightforward focal point.

I decided to create coordinating gift wrapping using one of our cute little Clear Boxes. I stamped a strip of card stock with the flowers like I did with the card and inserted it into the box. For a fun twist I took a strip of Basic Black card stock and fringed both sides using our Fringe Scissors. Gives it a playfulness don't you think?

For the topper I stamped a circle Stitched Framelit with leaves in Wild Wasabi ink. I also stamped and hand cut a single flower and attached it to the top with a dimensional. For the fun little tag, I used one of the word stamps in that set. Can you tell? I used the one that says "Thanks for being you." and only inked up the "for you".

I'm loving the versatility of this set! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you will continue hopping along and enjoy all the birthday inspired creations. Depending on where you started on our hop you can either go back and see Holly's inspirational creations or you can move along to see Mikaela's creative genius.  Happy Stamping!
