With the start of a new year, I like to highlight birthday cards in the January class.  One of the cards in this past week’s class featured the Beautiful You stamp set.  When I first looked at the stamp sets in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions mini-catalog, the stamp set “Beautiful You” was not a set that I planned to order…well, that changed quickly!  At the November OnStage Stampin’ Up! event, it was one of the stamp sets demonstrated.  After seeing the beautiful cards and the variety of ways the images could be used, it moved quickly to the top of the list.  Plus the stamp set has lots of great sentiments.  I love all images but the gal kicking to the side is my favorite – such a carefree, happy attitude!
Birthday card featuring Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Stamp Set
Notice the floral dress…it’s a piece of Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (DSP). Stamp the image using Archival Black onto the DSP and cut the dress following the stamped lines.  Stamp the same image on Shimmery White cardstock that has been cut with a framelit from the Lots of Labels Framelits.  Use multipurpose liquid glue to attach the floral dress to the stamped image.  The hat was colored using the Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil and an aqua painter.  The sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  Layer a coordinating piece of the Affectionately Yours DSP onto Daffodil Delight cardstock base, attach the focal piece and finish embellishing with a piece of coordinating ribbon.  
Thanks for stopping by…check back often, I have a stack of projects to share!
