Here is my project using the STAMPtember new release products.


Happy Birthday card smaller

I started with die cutting the Alphabet Blocks dies as it came without cutting them off individually on Neenah Solar white cardstock panel. Then trimmed off the edges to fit on the card front. The card base is Neenah Solar White on which I sponged Twirling Tutu ink from Simon Says Stamp then sponging Teeny Bikini Simon Says Stamp ink on the edges to give it some depth. I then adhered the Alphabet Blocks die cut panel on the card front. Some of the alphabets are not attached to the sides of the frame. So I glued them down in its place.

Happy Birthday closeup

For the focal point, I die cut the Sketch Gift die in pink cardstock and again using black glitter cardstock. I adhered the pink Sketch Gift on a vellum panel and filled insides of the die cut with the negatives from the black glitter diecut. I absolutely love this die. The sketch outline is so very unique and awesome. One of my favourite die from the release. Then I stamped the birthday message using one of the older stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Birthday Messages on a strip of white cardstock and adhered using foam adhesives. I also white heat embossed a second sentiment from Oh Happy Day stamp set on the vellum panel. I then adhered this vellum panel on the card front using foam adhesive hidden behind the Sketch Gift die cut. Finally embellished with Onyx sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I am very pleased with my card. Hope you are too!

The next person on the hop is to the gorgeous and talented Heather's Blog.


So now it's YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
