December Birthday

Hi Folks,

Today’s post is part of the Pootles Birthday blog hop. Please visit the other blogs on the hop for some additional inspiration.

I have chosen Birthday Memories DSP for my background which determined the colours I used for the rest of the card.

I selected Pacific Point card stock for the card base. I added some interest by stamping the Brushstrokes background across the centre using Dapper Denim ink.

The DSP was matted on to So Saffron card stock and adhered in the centre of the card.

The sentiment is from the Watercolor Words set and stamped in Pacific Point. Again, this was matted on to So Saffron card stock. This was adhered at an angle using dimensionals.

A couple of balloons were punched from Tempting Turquoise card stock and added some clear Wink of Stella.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Thanks for stopping by and happy Stampin’!

DSP Note Card Mix

Hi folks,

I shared some note cards a couple of days ago which were very popular. So here are some more using some of the papers included in the paper sale which ends on 31st October – so there’s still time to get yours.

These 4 use A Whole Lot of Lovely to cover the card with a simple black sentiment from the coordinating stamp set Lots of Love.


Birthday Memories was used for these cards. I used the same layout as the original post. The sentiments are taken from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.


Here is Pick a Pattern. This is quite a quirky designer paper, but looks great here. The pieces were cut on the diagonal for a different look. The sentiments are taken from Patterns and Pieces and cut and mounted in different ways.


Finally, I used Christmas Around the World. This pack has some very bold designs on one side, but the other side has some more traditional designs which I used on these cards. I teamed this with Foil Snowflakes and a sentiment from Hearts Come Home.


So I hope this gives you some ideas.

Thanks for stopping by an happy stampin’!

Happy Birthday Memories #GDP110

Good Morning,

It’s Wednesday – that means its Global Design Project day. This week is a sketch challenge.

You can see what the design team created here.

… And this is my interpretation of the sketch…

The card base is made with Real Red card stock which was stamped using the Brushstrokes background and Real Red ink.

I used Birthday Memories DSP to create the topper. Two strips were cut to 1-1/2 by 4 inches and matted on to Early Espresso card stock. Some Whisper White bakers twine and Linen thread were wrapped around the topper before adhering to the card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment was taken from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and stamped in Real Red ink. This was cut with the Starburst punch.

To complete the topper, this was layered on to another Starburst cut from Early Espresso and a Crumb Cake stitched circle. This was adhered flat to the card.

I substituted the heart from the sketch with a circle. A 1-1/4 inch punch was used to cut a cake from another sheet of DSP. This was added to Real Red and Crumb Cake circles. This was adhered to the card with dimensionals.

The finishing touch was to add some rhinestones.


I hope you enjoyed this project.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!
