Release Week Day 3 - Inside Scoop: Birthday

We spend a lot of time making fabulous cards.  We use great stamps, colorful paper, painstaking coloring and more.  But what about the inside of the card?  What do I say now?  Never fear, Fresh Squeezed Stamps has you covered!

Inside Scoop: Birthday is the first in a new series of stamp sets that will make every card maker's dreams come true!  Everyone loves to create the image and embellishment covered card front, but what to write inside?  There are six birthday-inspired sentiments you'll use all the time for the cards you make the most.

Inside Scoop: Birthday

This set is so versatile that, even though it's called Inside Scoop, using these sentiments on the front of your card is A-OK!  Virginia Lu has created a gorgeous watercolor rainbow to wish someone a happy birthday.  Notice how she also used the sentiment as the background on the die-cut frame?  What a clever way to change up how you'd use a sentiment.

Tracey McNeely might have been "framed" for missing a birthday, but she makes up for it with an awesome card!  That sweet paper bow and pleasing color palette help make the celebration last well beyond the birthday!

Soft and subtle, Heather Campbell's card mixes balloons from the new set Life of the Party, as well as circles from On Trend 2013, to add lots of pretty color to this birthday card.

How many candles go on YOUR cake this year?!  You won't have to spoil the surprise when you use this sentiment on your next birthday card.  Leigh Penner has created super fun 3D candles that really make this card a "match" made in heaven!

This watercolor resist card by Heather Pulvirenti blends two of our new release sets -- Life of the Party for the balloons and the sentiment from today's reveal, Inside Scoop: Birthday.  Love how the thin jute string mirrors the strings on the balloons and the color combo is fantastic!

Finally, Erin Taylor wraps up this party with a sweet little number that goes like this...a watermelon sorbet ribbon and banner set off the soft blues and greens of the patterned paper, and those tiny little stars sprinkled on top are simply delish!
