The Stamps of Life: Side Step Candle Birthday

Hello, friends!  Welcome to my blog--I am SUPER excited that you are here today!  I've got a fun, bold, and brightly colored birthday card--AND IT'S A SIDE STEP!  This is a NEW release die from The Stamps of Life and it is SO perfect for those special birthdays you need to celebrate!  Come and take a peek...

I started by die cutting the base from the NEW Happy Birthday Step-Ups base die.  I then took some Kiwi cardstock and cut out some layering pieces using the same Happy Birthday Step-Ups die pack.

I layered the tow main panel Kiwi pieces with some papers from the Love Story Collection Paper Pad.  This paper pad is SO versatile--I LOVE it!  I stamped a sentiment from the candles4birthday stamp set onto the smallest piece of patterned paper and heat embossed it with some white powder so it would POP off of the pattern.

I used the Candle Club Die Set to die cut and layer some fun candles for the main panel.  I used the same Kiwi cardstock, Love Story Colleciton Paper Pad, and some gold glitter paper for the inside flames.  

All that was left was to add a bunch of fun colored enamel dots to the card!  I absolutely adore the way this turned out--so bold, bright, and fun!  What do you think of it?  I'd love for you to leave me a comment letting me know!

That's all for me today!  THANK YOU so much for stopping by--I love when you do!  I hope that you are inspired to craft and create today and that you hop over to The Stamps of Life and grab all these fun goodies--we now have FREE shipping on orders over $100!  Score!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
