Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop: Birthday Theme

There is always a reason to celebrate, but May brings with it a few of our team members birthdays and who can resist a month of celebrating, gaining that extra bit of wisdom that comes with aging. So tonight I say ‘Happy Birthday, You Awesome Ladies!’ (you know who you are.)

I have created quite a few birthday cards that to be honest I am in love with! the Cupcakes and Carousel DSP although is now retired seems to be my ultimate favourite at the moment.

  • Cupcakes and Carousel DSP with the corresponding cardstock along with whisper white paper.
  • Square stitched framelits
  • Triple banner punch
  • Birthday Delivery stamp set
  • Inks used- Mint Macaroon and Bermuda Bay.

  • Cupcakes and Carousel DSP again with the corresponding cardstock along with whisper white paper.
  • To create the effect of the doily I have used the daffodil delight ink (I stamped it flat onto the doily with printer paper for the excess ink.
  • Oval stitched framelit
  • Triple banner punch
  • Carousel Birthday Stamp Set and the the Window Shopping Stamp Set
  • The ink used for this card was Bermuda Bay.

  • The new catalogue stamp set and DSP Birthday Delivery Suite has some fantastic things to offer. The set gives you the framelits of the different images but unfortunately the bear doesn’t happen to be one. So if you are like me and get into the spirit a little too much then fussy cutting is the only answer!
  • I used the corresponding cardstock to the Birthday Suite and the new Lemon Lime Twist cardstock along with whisper white paper.
  • Triple banner punch
  • Circle stitched framelits
  • I have used Pacific Point and the new Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • The stamp sets used were Birthday Delivery and Tabs for Everything.

Once again I have incorporated the Cupcakes and Carousel DSP into my design using the corresponding cardstock with whisper white paper. I have used the layering square framelits and the circle stitched framelit. The sentiment used was from the Window Shopping Stamp Set and it was 3D stamped using Bermuda Bay and Watermelon Wonder Ink.

This type of fold is called a DUTCH FOLD- I saw it on YouTube from Dawn- her website is www.DawnsStampingThoughts.net so if you get a chance give her a look!!

Thanks for reading and looking at my designs, feel free to copy or draw inspiration from them but please if you wouldn’t mind sharing where you cased the idea it would be much appreciated.
