Happiest of Birthdays…

Today was a class day here at Rambling Rose Studio.  Most of these girls have been coming to my classes for at least three years…and they are just so much fun.  I know that once the kits are out and samples at stations they will dig in and just do their thing.  You should hear some of our conversations while they are working!  (maybe not.)

Sharing with a class group is one of my favorite things about being a demonstrator…but just one.  I love my job!

Here’s a birthday card I will proudly send to someone special…love the stamp set and the color combo…


and here’s the inside…


A surprise fold created with the Botanical Builder Framelits set…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride cardstock
  • Ink:  Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Botanical Blooms, Birthday Blooms (sentiments) and Gorgeous Grunge (splats)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Botanical Builder Framelits Dies


  • The two base cards are 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ in Thick Whisper White and Mint Macaron scored at 4 1/4″.   Cut one side of the Mint Macaron with the leaf framelit from bottom to top.  Adhere one side of the White to the full side of the Mint Macaroon.  The White will fold in first and the Mint Macaron will be the top front layer.
  • Cut one Watermelon Wonder large bloom from Botanical Builder Framelits and five leaves from Mint Macaron.  Stamp the leaf veins in Basic Black.  Add some Gorgeous Grunge splats then adhere leaves flat with glue or adhesive.  Add some splats to flower, a white center and a small Blushing Bride flower with glue dots.  Add flower over leaves with a dimensional.
  • Add sentiment at top with Basic Black with some Mint Macaron dots.
  • Inside add Happiest of Birthdays to you in Basic Black and a small Watermelon Wonder flower with Mint Macaron leaves and black dots.

Isn’t that a wow card with really a simple design once you’ve made it?  Love when that happens…

So back to the studio to clean up after today’s class and get ready for a private party with a fun group of best friends enjoying a week together.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Some days…

Come get inky with me…Be HaPpY!



  1. Bwahahaha! Love your B-ism today!
    Your card’s color combo is just gorgeous…Love the POP of Watermelon Wonder!

  2. Billie, this is another very beautiful card. I love all the elements and the mint macaron with the watermelon wonder flower. The die set with the leaf edging is so pretty. Your special person who receives this will surely be thrilled. Your “b-ism” today is too funny, but there are days it seems jumper cables are needed to give me some energy. Have a great week.

  3. Love your “work”. Botanical stamp and die a must have. Thanks for inspiring so many!!! You/your team are FABULOUS!

    • Thank you Hope! I agree about the Botanical Builder bundle…it is a must have and will be used over and over. Thanks for stopping by today…B!

  4. Hi Billie…I can hardly wait for my next order to arrive as I have used all of my mint macaron . Another wonderful card. Do you actually sleep?

    • You are too funny…of course I sleep. But I have been known to get up in the middle of the night when an idea hits and I can’t sleep until I see if it can be made. I ordered two packages of Mint Macaron this time…I’m out too!…B!
