Happy Birthday, Bailey!

Today is my oldest granddaughter's birthday.  The new stamp set, Work of Art, is one that is coming out in the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog and it has already become of new favorite.  It also fit the occasion.  Bailey is a beautiful and vibrant work of art!  I'm so proud of her.  It is a joy getting get to know her as a young adult.

The inspiration for my card came from one I saw done by Maria Pane.  She used the new 2014-2015 In Colors that will be seen in the new catalog, too.  They are gorgeous!  For Bailey's card, I used the retiring 2013-2014 In Colors.  I'm sad to see them go as they are such pretty colors.  I wanted to use a sentiment from Delightful Dozen but I could not for the life of me find that set.  So, I fired up My Digital Studio and printed it on white card stock.  It's on the inside of the card and I forgot to take a picture of it.  I used Midnight Muse and surprisingly, it matches the front of the card perfectly.

Stamp Sets:  Work of Art, Delight Dozen (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Stampin' Dimensionals

Originally, I had just stamped the hearts but they just didn't show up well.  So, I stamped them again on Whisper White and fussy cut them out and used Dimensionals to pop them up.  It looks so much better.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
