Designer Sketched Birthday

August 30, 2013

033I had time to play with some of the Designer Series Paper I bought when Stampin’ Up! had the buy 3 and get one free deal.  Gotta love getting something free!  This card uses the beautiful Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper.

I started by cutting Whisper White card in half lengthwise, scoring in half and then trimming about 5cm (2″) from the front.  I punched the shortened end with the Scallop Border Punch.  I added the Birthday Basics DSP with the candles to the front and a strip of the balloon DSP to the right hand side of the inside of the card. 039 I stamped the birthday cake image from the Sketched Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink and coloured it using  Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Markers.  I punched the image using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.  I discovered that one of the Circles in the Circles Collection Framelits is just a little larger than 2-1/2″ and used it to cut Basic Gray card to mat the image.  I attached this image to the front of the card so that it extended beyond the punched edge.  034 I stamped the “happy birthday cupcake” image from the Sketched Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink and coloured it using Stampin’ Write Markers in the same colours as the first image.  Again this is punched using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and attached to a Basic Gray mat before attaching to the inside of the card.

I love how bright and cheerful this card is.   If you would like to recreate this card you can purchase all of the supplies used in this card at my online store.

Bye for now, Kris.

    That stamp set and DP combo is super. And I love your fresh idea, cutting the cardstock lengthwise and the trimmed down front panel with the scalloped edge. That’s something to play with and I’m inspired to try it soon. Thanks for sharing, Kris. Hope you have a nice weekend. It’s a holiday weekend in the states – good time to stamp.
