Happy Birthday trio

Stamps: Numbers4Trains from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight
Inks: Crumb Cake, Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black
Embellishments: rhinestones

I had to create some birthday cards for my stash and what better way to do that then using the set Numbers4trains from The {Stamps} of Life.

For my first card, I stamped the crumb cake ink directly onto my cardstock.  I tried to keep it pretty simple and just added a few rhinestones.

Card details:
Stamps: Numbers4Trains from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, Whisper White
Inks: Blueberry ink and Blueberry, Strawberry and Banana sprays
Embellishments: Sizzix Rounded Tags

This card I was preparing ahead of time, my little guy's birthday is coming up and he loves bright colors.  I sprayed the background with the Strawberry, Blueberry and Banana sprays from Stephanie Barnard.  The Sizzix Rounded tags were the perfect addition to this card.

Stamps: Numbers4Trains and Labels4Cutting from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Fancy Pants Memories Captured
Inks: Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black
Embellishments: Labels4Cutting, Sizzix Banners#2, My Mind's Eye Enamel Dots

This card already went out in the mail, a simple card for my BFF who turned 40 last month.

Loving these numbers and know they will work so well in my Project Life album as well.

Hi, Kim, great cards--all three--although I am more in tune with the 40th card (or almost 70th)! Love the simplicity of the elements to allow the numbers to be front and center! Great use of both bling and staples!!
