Grace created beautiful birthday cards adding a festive touch with Fishtail Banner Borders! The dotty pattern of the Stripes ‘n Sprinkles paper is so sweet on the banners. She also used the pretty papers with Pastel Pearlescent Vellum to create the yummy Stitched Cupcakes!

Grace made these cards even more special by using the new Big Scripty Words Hot Foil Plates to add the shiny gold birthday greeting!

I love how she created a fun shaker cupcake top! The sprinkles shaker bits are so sweet and the perfect choice!

Elise‘s birthday card is so cute! She arranged the Fishtail Banner Borders cut from Stripes ‘n Sprinkles paper in rainbow order to create an adorable birthday card! And then, with minimal stamping, just the heat embossed sentiment, this design is perfect for creating multiples to have on hand for birthdays all year!

Melissa‘s mini album features the fun papers of Stripes ‘n Sprinkles! The pastel dots and stripes add pretty pattern without taking the attention away from the photos and embellishments! I love how she combined Fishtail Banner Borders with Bunting Borders on the album cover, they work so well together!

Audrey‘s birthday card is so adorable! This sweet scene combines cute Bubbles of Joy and Really High Five mice with the cake from Birthday Before ‘n Afters. In the background she layered the Fishtail Banner Borders over a Stitched Ripple Backdrop.

Kara created a totally “hoppy” card using bunnies from Hop To It washi tape on the Fishtail Banners! This idea is so clever and her card is absolutely adorable!

Welcome a “little peanut” with Caly‘s cheerful design! Her shaker design is so sweet with little images from Elephant Parade and the dotted fishtail banners!

Latisha card sends sweet hugs with Sew Very Mice and a pretty aqua and teal color palette! This card is so fun and so cute!

Lynnette‘s simple design is so beautiful! She cut the Fishtail Banner Borders from Stripes ‘n Sprinkles paper to layer on a plain landscape and portrait card. Add a quick sentiment and this design is perfect for so many occasions!

Easter cards and Stripes ‘n Sprinkles paper are so made for each other! And Yainea‘s fantastic card is lovely proof! She combined Eggcellent Easter Basket and Simple Stripes: Portrait with a Henry Jr.’s ABCs greeting to send an Easter card that is so perfect!

Elena‘s floral balloons are so gorgeous! She arranged flowers from Darling Daffodils on Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables and Stitched Balloon Frames to make the most brilliant balloons! Then she layered them over neutral colored Fishtail Banner Borders to add even more detail. And that little message is so sweet!
