Birthday stamp-a-stack

I had all-birthday stamp-a-stack classes this weekend and wanted to share the cards we made. The first card is one that goes a little outside my comfort zone:
I used some bright colors and wasn't sure if my customers would find it a little "too" bright, but it actually got lots of compliments. I think being the midst of winter leaves people longing for warmer weather, and this card makes me think of something tropical.

The next one was heavily inspired by this fabulous card:


Sometimes I really want to take it back to the basics with a SIP card (stamps, ink, paper). Nothing extravagant on this one:

And my customers really enjoyed using the Big Shot machine with the Sweetest Stem embosslit and Raspberry Tart designer series paper on this one:


In addition to these cards, they also made a masculine card (featured on my blog back in December).


Hope you enjoyed these as much as my customers did!!

nice selection of cards, and good job stepping outside of your comfort zone might appeal to some other stampers.
