All Star Birthday

I realized that I have very few birthday cards for kids in my inventory and thought the Custom Tee stamp set would be a great one to use for a few.

To add some splash to the backgrounds, I used the Happy Celebrations stamp set on two different layers of card stock behind the die cut shirt.

January Paper Pumpkin Alternative

This is another alternative project you could create using the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I started out with a Rich Razzleberry 12" x 12" card stock and added some Tempting Turquoise and Calypso Coral card stock.

I cut down one of the boxes to use it as a pull our journaling card holder and added some banners, enamel shapes and a gold binder clip.

Better Late Than Never!

Well I am finally getting around to sharing January Paper Pumpkin projects with you! I got a little behind when we were on vacation and then my daughter had my box since she used it to make Valentine's for her class and teacher...

The photo above is the adorable little bag that the kit was intended for. 

Miniature sized candies fit inside it perfectly and Maddie had a lot of fun making them for her friends. 

I also made a card using parts of the kit to share with you (and tomorrow I will have another project for you using the same items!).  I just cut down the box and added some card stock, sequins and metallic thread.

Enjoy Life

I wanted lots of color and different textures on this card when I was putting it together.  To achieve that, I went with Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay ink, a Cucumber Crush doily and some metallic thread and enamel shapes.

The circle is cut out using the Stitched Shapes framelits and I punched the banner out on the sentiment with the triple banner punch.

The Best Is Yet To Come

I was playing around with the Balloon Pop Up Thinlit dies that are in the Occasions catalog one day and came up with this card.  First, I took a piece of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Crumb Cake and used the large die on one end. 

Then, I cut out a few balloons using Real Red and Dapper Denim card stock and added them to the Crumb Cake with glue dots.  Behind the die cut area I added a piece of Sending Love glassine sheets that had Real Red cardstock behind it and added a couple pieces of Dapper Denim ruched ribbon. 

Then, some stamping, enamel dots and a strip of Dapper Denim that was embossed with the Hexagons dynamic folder to complete it.

To You!

Today's card is created using another stamp set in the Occasions catalog called Happy Celebrations.  What I love about it is the large words and the layering options. 

I chose to add some Falling in Love designer series paper behind the sentiment layers and added some Very Vanilla 1/4" satin ribbon around it. 

The Happy is double stamped with two of the "happy" layering stamps, one if Crumb Cake and the other in Soft Suede.  The swoosh and "birthday to you" are also from the same set.  To complete it, I added some basic pearls.

I've Got This

The sentiment on this card is the reason I purchased this stamp set Sending Thoughts even though I like others in the set.  I know it will be used quite a bit around here...

I paired it with the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Honeycomb embossing folder.  The striped piece of card stock behind the flower layer is a random Project Life card.
