1st Birthday for PPA306

Mary Fish's sketch for Pals Paper Arts 306

I made this card for our grandson's first birthday. He and our granddaughter are two years and two days apart and they are having an ice cream birthday party on Sunday. (You will check back to see her "3rd birthday" card and how I incorporated the ice cream theme into it).

The new In Colors are growing on me! Here I used Peekaboo Peach and I think it looks like a sorbet. What flavor would it be??? I also thought that using Pool Party for a scoop looked like fun--perhaps Bubble Gum flavored ice cream? And the Pear Pizzazz scoop has got to be Pistachio, right? And look at those yummy Peekaboo Peach Enamel shapes I accented with!

Thanks for looking! I love that you stopped by. Won't you leave me a comment? I would love to know what your favorite ice cream/sorbet is and what Stampin' Up! color it would be!

Birthday Cake Greetings

I started this card by choosing the stamp set Build a Birthday. I haven't had a chance to use it much yet. I chose the colors for my cake layers and plate: Watermelon Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Crushed Curry. 

After choosing stamp set and ink colors, it was a "piece of cake!" to finish my card. The sentiment "birthday wishes" is stamped in Basic Gray. I used an Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker to outline the scallops on the cake plate. I added a line of Basic Rhinestones to the plate edge as well just for fun!

I hope you enjoyed looking today! Won't you leave me a comment? I love knowing someone is actually reading/looking at my blog!

Butterfly Sympathy

I CASEd a card that Amy O'Neill made. I changed the colors and the sentiment stamp. Everything else was pretty much the same.  I really like how this turned out and it also reminded me to use Shimmery White card stock more often! It holds watercolor very nicely. I used Flirty Flamingo on this card.

I got my first chance to use the In Color Enamel Shapes. I thought the heart was appropriate for sympathy, but there are also stars and rounds.

Shimmery Thank You

This thank you card is shiny and special. I used a piece of wallpaper as the background. It's the favorite one that my interior designer/friend helped me pick out for my tiny half bath. I LOVE it!! The color is actually a coral or terra cotta color, but coordinates perfectly with the Stampin' Up! Crazy Cajun, which is my card base. 

I tucked a Gold Shimmer card stock leaf cut from Rose Garden Thinlits into the Gold Stain ribbon tied in a knot. The sentiment is from Rose Wonder and I embossed it and cut it out using the same thinlits. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up off the card.

I hope you enjoyed looking today! Thank you for using my Online Store when you shop for Stampin' Up! When you shop my store, you support my stamp habit!!
