Hi friends and welcome back! I hope you all having a great week. Today I am stopping by with a couple of birthday cards. My stash of birthday cards is getting low (especially for boys) so I thought I would use the Gifted Set along with a few other supplies to make a few. 

I started my cards by using the Gifted Stamp Set. I stamped it two times. On my first card, I used the Gifted Stencil to add color to my card panel. Such a quick and easy way to add color to your gifts.

To finish my card, I used the Simple Strips Background Stamp for my sentiment. I love how this set creates so many sentiments for so many different occasions. 

For my next card, I started by using the Masking Stencils- Square Windows. I ink blended the same three colors as I used on my first card (orange, green and blue) to create my panel.

I then used my other Gifted stamped panel and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Gifted Cutting Plate. This gave me a bunch of little gifts to use on lots of different cards. I choose three and attached them to my panel along with a sentiment strip.

I love how the stamp, stencil and die work together on these sets. It give you so many possibilities for creating! I think this will be a really fun set to use at Christmas time too.

Thanks for joining me. I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Enjoy your day,
