VC Rocks August Blog Hop

 I hope you are enjoying your VC Rocks blog hop.  The featured items from the new Stampin' Up! catalog will leave you with a long wish list!  Today, I made some cards with the new hostess set, Happiest Birthday Wishes.  This set of 11 birthday sentiments are perfect for punching out after stamping.  I made masculine,  feminine and  baby birthday cards.

The happy birthday on the left side of this card looks like a wheeled image.   I just stamped it twice in a row.  Since this was masculine, I used only the curly label punch.

Although I planned this card for a baby, it could be used for other birthdays also.  The punches used are extra large oval and decorative label.  I also used the Big Shot ovals die for the back 2 layers.  I love to layer Stampin' Up punches and dies.

And for my final card, I am still deciding if I like it or not.  What I always say is when in doubt add a layer, and every card deserves ribbon.  This card may prove those to be false.  What do you think?

These punched layers for the sentiment are so right!
I used 1" circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1 3/4" circle and 1 3/4" scallop circle punches.  The concord grape circle is from the Big Shot circles #2 die.
