This week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge #226 is a Birthday theme card. Here is their card sketch:

A week and a half ago, I went over to my friend’s house to help her set up her new Brother Scan-n-Cut. Once we had it working to scan and cut out stamped images, we made a card using the Lawn Fawn fairies we had just cut out. We colored the fairies using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. The designer paper is from a paper stack (I think it is Penny Black – not sure). The “happy BIRTHDAY” is cut from a My Favorite Thing die set out of Fun Stampers Journey cardstock (this was cut out at a later date at my house). The grassy hill and flowers are cut from the Lawn Fawn coordinating dies that work with the Fairy set and the hill is embossed using a SU! embossing folder. The cardstock mat is SU! cardstock as well as the grassy hill and flowers.

As we were working on our cards, I became extremely nauseated and left to go home (not realizing I had left my unfinished card project). My friend, Cheyenne, brought it over and gave it to me to finish, but she didn’t realize I had not stamped the sentiment on my card; so, we had cut out the “happy BIRTHDAY” for a card Cheyenne was making for a friend and it just didn’t fit what she was creating and it was pushed aside. A few days later, I was going through my cards that needed to be completed or updated to sell on my Etsy shop and I thought this “happy BIRTHDAY” would work wonderfully on my card. Voila! It did and here it is:

What a cute, adorable card to give someone special on their special day!

Thanks for coming back for the details if you got my initial post. For some reason, I am always under the wire getting my PPA card challenge completed and submitted by the time deadline of 12 noon on Tuesdays. Thus, I didn’t have time to give any details on the project until I got the card submitted right on time.

I had originally wanted to us the SU! stamp set Wood You Be Mine?, but I couldn’t pull the card together in my mind’s eye. Then, I thought of the retired SU! stamp set Seaside. I layered the shells from this stamp set using a mask and, quite by accident, I made a stamped image from a newly inked pad where the ink had not settled into the pad of the large conch shell. I had already stamped initial image and I cut out the darker portions of the over inked image and layered it on top of the original image. I made a double layered mat from Marina Mist card stock layered on Sahara Sand card stock and stamped coral as a back drop for the fish from By The Tide which was stamped with Early Espresso onto Pool Party card stock and highlighted with Stampin’ Write markers. The shells, fish, and sentiment (“Happy Birthday” – Sprinkles of Life SU! stamp set) are raised with SU! dimensionals.


Supplies: Seaside SU! retired stamp set; Stampin’ Write Markers – Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding, Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana

A friend needed a birthday card for her dad and wanted to make it herself. She came over and this was the result of our endeavors. Love this card!

Discontinued Supplies: SU! Up, Up, & Away Stamp Set, SU! Designer Series Paper (I was trying to use up scraps), and SU! Poppy Parade ink pad.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the second of three designs. This is a quick and simple birthday card. The colors are vibrant and with the tinted rhinestones, shouts CELEBRATE!! (Note: Daffodil Delight Blendabilities was used to tint the rhinestones. It is not listed in the supplies since all Blendabilities have been dropped from SU! product line). I absolutely cannot find the card I used for inspiration. I have spent the last 30 minutes trying to find it on my Pinterest Board; to no avail. Once I find it, I’ll share the link.
