Joyful Birthday

As you know, this month I am sharing some of my favourite stamp sets and projects to celebrate our fabulous promotion Stampaganza 2016

In March, when you purchase two of our fabulous My Acrylix stamp sets, you can choose a third set *FREE! Yes, completely and utterly FREE! This is such a wonderful promotion and the perfect time to snap up the stamp sets that you have on your wish list! 

Today I am sharing a stamp set that wasn't on my radar for such a long time, and then I saw it used on a card, found it in my Annual Inspirations Idea Book and thought to myself, 'Why don't I have this stamp set?' Seriously, birthday cards are the cards I make most often and these four Happy Birthday sentiments are perfect for a huge range of birthday projects including cards, page layouts, gift bags, gift tags and 3D projects.  

Since I have added this stamp set to my collection, it is probably the sentiment stamp set that I use most frequently and it is often the star of a card or project at my monthly cardmaking and paper crafting workshops. I LOVE it!

My favourite project featuring the Joyful Birthday stamp set has to be this adorable card featuring rolled roses that is based on a design taught to me by my sister consultant Dawn Heathwood.  I just love the stark contrast between the Black and Canary Cardstock, the striking black leaves the Black Glitter Paper, White Daisy Scallops and of course that gorgeous Happy Birthday sentiment! Who wouldn't want to receive this card for their birthday?

This has been one of the most popular cards at my Cardmaking Workshops. Everyone just loves making it! If you would like to have a go at making this card, then check out the ingredients and instructions below.
