Twirly Whirly Birthday - PPA158 Color Challenge

Follow Me on Pinterest

I have a wonderful color combination to share today courtesy of the Pals Paper Arts design team:

Isn't this combination just delightful? Here is what I came up with:

I am in need of a few birthday cards and wanted to use the Pinwheel Sizzlit Die and the Wishes Your Way Stamp Set before they retire on June 3rd. I also loaded up on some beautiful Designer Series Paper that will be retiring as's so sad to see these beautiful products retire but we must make room for beautiful NEW products!

Did you notice the Designer Series Paper I used for the pinwheel? I wanted to have one side be Pool Party and the other Summer Starfruit but I didn't have one Designer Series Paper that fit that bill so I created two pinwheels from the Sizzlits Die and attached them together before assembling the pinwheel...where there is a will there is a way!

Hello Baby - Freshly Made Sketches #49

Follow Me on Pinterest

Today's card is a little gem created using a wonderful sketch by Jen Mitchell over a Freshly Made Sketches:

So clean and simple! My card came together in no time at all and I just love how the colors work together:

I wanted to create a gender neutral baby card and this striped pattern paper from the Birds of a Feather Designer Paper Series worked perfectly for me! I chose soft complimenting colors from various papers and used my 3/16" corner punch to add a tad more softness to the card. A bit of Primrose Petals cardstock just peeking out is a nice compliment to the soft colors. The zig-zag was created using my Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies and the circles were created with my 1" circle punch. That's it!

Design note: I used a bit of post it tape to tack the zig zag edgelit die to the cardstock so it wouldn't move during the cutting process. 

Stampin Supplies:

Stamps: Sweet Essentials

Paper: Primrose Petals, Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White CS; Birds of a Feather, Patio Party, Twitterpated DSP

Ink: Sahara Sand Classic Stampin' Pad

Tools: Big Shot, Finishing Touches Edgelits Die, 1" Circle Punch, 3/16" Corner Punch

Embellishments:  None

Topsy Turvy Birthday - Mojo Monday#253

Follow Me on Pinterest

What a fun sketch to work with! Lots of layers this week! This is what I came up with:

I was excited to use the Birds of a Feather DSP, it has such bright cheery colors! And I just received the Topsy Turvy Celebration stamp set and couldn't wait to try it out. I could only get one layer of the cake on this card, but watch for more...such a CUTE set!

I free-handed the banner and used my paper piercing tool to add a bit of 'pop' to the scalloped circle. I like how it turned out, please leave me a comment if you like it as well!

Stampin Supplies:

Stamps: Topsy Turvy Celebration

Paper: Whisper White, Summer Starfruit CS; Birds of a Feather DSP

Ink: Island Indigo, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit Classic Ink Pads
