Pheasant Hill stamping in January

I have a class at a 50's and over apartment complex, been going for a few years now.  I always keep the cards fairly easy as some of them that come have problems with their eyes or shakiness do to illness.  Our first class was Tuesday the 9th.  Here are the cards- I used new product from the  2018 Stampin' Up Occasions catalog.  This first card was made with Picture Perfect Birthday.  We stamped the flames first then added the base of the candle adding either dots are stripes to add depth to the candle.  Stamped the sentiment over the lightest middle candle.  I also showed them the stamp-off technique so the outside two candles weren't as dark as the dots.  (If you don't know how to do that it is quit simple just ink up your stamp and then stamp the candle base on scrap paper before stamping on oval/ Next ink up the top layer with the same stamp pad and stamp directly on the first stamped image).  The embossed background is lemon lime twist card stock.  The candles are lemon lime,  bermuda bay, fresh fig the candle flame was daffodil delight.

 This card is made with the Perennial Birthday set in the same catalog.  This set also has a Project Kit to match and I really thought it would be a great set for birthdays and other types of  events if you changed up the words.
I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest to use the "little" stamps in a set so we made this stamped background on a quarter sheet of card stock then cut an inch off the bottom to use on the inside of the card. We cut another three quarters inch off and put it at the base of the card and what was left at the top.  Heat embossed the sentiment, some used the happy birthday and some used other sayings from the variety of sets that I usually take so they do have a choice.  Inks used - flirty flamingo, dapper denim, old olive, wisteria wonder and a gold pad for the dots.  Dapper denim card base pearls were added I colored some with a copic marker to match the blue and then left plain for beside the sentiment.  Ribbon from JoAnns.
