What's your favorite occasion to create for? I happen to love birthdays and this month at Papertrey Ink there are oodles of new birthday products. Today's post will showcase many of them, specifically the new Inside & Out Birthday II.
My first project uses a couple of sweet sentiments from the Inside & Out Birthday II set and knew immediately after reading the sentiment used here, who I wanted to create this card for. My little bean will be an official "double digit" in a few months. I created a shaped using the Shape Up Series: Cupcake die collection...an all-time favorite of mine. It was cut from Kraft cardstock and then sentiment embossed using Zing Blush.
I used the new Suffix Style and By the Number Border dies on my vellum Tag Sale #2 die cut from vellum cardstock. The tag was stamped with beautiful images from the Inside & Out Birthday II stamp set using Dark Chocolate ink. Beneath the sentiment I used the new Mat Stack 6 collection and embossed the image in white embossing powder. The Classic Kraft, Simply Chartreuse, and Vintage Cream felt flowers used on the tag and at the top of the cupcake were die cut using the Heart-2-Heart #7 and Polka Dot Parade #2 die collections.
I wanted to add a layer of frosting to the top of my cupcake so I just trimmed freehand some beautiful printable paper purchased from one of my favorite etsy stores, Cameo Shoppe. The scrunched seam binding is from My Craft Spot.
And at the top of the cupcake, you can catch a peek at another new stamp set, the Wishes Come True set.
This second card uses the new Rainbow Circles die collection and what a fun collection it is. I created a smiley face using this set and after putting the card together, had all of these wonderful scraps leftover and the ideas just started flowing, so it's one collection that is sure to entertain and inspire.
The Ocean Tides felt hearts were cut using the Heart-2-Heart #11 die. They and the Rainbow dies were adhered to a Vintage Cream cardstock base cut using the Boutique Accessory Card die. I also cut a second layer using patterned paper and the Desktop File Center die and stamped "Smile" using the Antique Alphabet stamp set and Classic Kraft ink.
The fun sentiment across the top comes from the Inside & Out Birthday II set once again and is stamped in Ocean Tides ink. I used it along with new Mat Stack 6 set and Limeade Ice.
Can't wait to see what the other designers have to share with us!
