I hope to show you just how fun and versatile these sentiments can truly be...
First up, a build your own birthday cake. A few of the sentiments seemed to be just the right size to stack into a cake. Can you see it?! The bottom Simply Chartreuse layer, the middle Orange Zest, then a Spring Rain layer and topped it off with a candle from the same set.
For a bit more color I used a few of the die cut and stamped tickets, from Just The Ticket (also available on the 15th), on either side of the white panel and embellished with True Black buttons. For the next card, I couldn't help but pair these fun birthday sentiments up with a cupcake from an older set, Cupcake Collection. Started by stamping "It's A Celebration" (from Birthday Bash Sentiments) to create a pattern paper in True Black onto a white card stock circle. I love the clean and modern feel this created.
Embellished the top corner with some more fun colored tickets (Simply Chartreuse & Raspberry Fizz) and buttons (Hawaiian Shores & Simply Chartreuse).
Embellished the bottom corner with a cupcake from Cupcake Collection. Layered a Raspberry Fizz cupcake top over a Hawaiian Shores cupcake bottom. Finished it off with one last Raspberry Fizz button and attached it all to a Hawaiian Shores 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" card base.
Next up, I paired the "HAPPY" & "Birthday" with It's Official (also available on the 15). Created my own hand stamped pattern paper strip with a few images from It's Official (stamped in Versamark onto Pure Poppy) and tied some bakers twine around it.
Stamped "HAPPY" in Pure Poppy, cut each individual letter out and layered them over a bingo card (stamped in True Black) from It's Official. Attached the bingo card over the hand stamped strip and finished off the sentiment by stamping "birthday" in true black onto the kraft card base.
And finally, a bit more of a softer take. This time I paired Birthday Bash Sentiments with another older set, Life. Stamped the flower sprigs in Versamark onto Smokey Shadow cardstock and rounded the corner. For the focal panel I die cut the Spiral Note Book Page Die (also available on the 15th) from Soft Stone cardstock, stamped with note book lines in Smokey Shadow and rounded the bottom corner.
Stamped the flower sprigs onto the note book page in melon berry and nestled "Happy Birthday" and "to You" together (stamped in True Black), to create the perfect sentiment. Wrapped it with some Harvest Gold twill ribbon around the top and layered a couple Harvest Gold buttons.
So there you have it! I hope I have inspired you to pull out your sentiment sets and bring them to life!
