Themed Thursday - Oh Happy Day!

Hi everyone!  Tara C. here to share another Themed Thursday project with you.

I am going to need lots of birthday and wedding/shower cards this year and I have been itching to use this adorable stamp set 'Happy Day' from Paper Wings Productions.  I was torn on which card to start first and then had the brilliant idea to use the same stamp set and create cards for both occasions! Keep the same size card and just change up the colors and embellishments slightly for a totally new card.

So, I started with the birthday card in the striking color combo of red, black and white with a bit of silver thrown in for sparkle.  I stamped, then cut the sweet banner and assembled it on red ribbon.  

I painted some chipboard stars and then stamped directly on them using the flower bouquets from this stamp set also seen at the bottom of the card.  Too cute! A bit of ribbon and some gems are the finishing touches.

I then cleaned all of the stamps and switched the color scheme to pinks and created this darling wedding/shower card.  It was so easy to create the same look with the banner and background papers as I already knew the sizes to cut and how to assemble it together!  

I changed up the ribbon and the embellishments just a little bit but kept the layout exactly the same. 

What a difference a change of color can make! I will definitely be using this set again and I will  just set up an assembly line and keep creating the same card in different colors for birthdays, graduations, weddings, new jobs.......
