Birthday with Banners

Playing with Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge. I enjoy sketches and this sketch captured my eye.

I used Gina K Designs Blue Denim ink and cardstock. The white is Spectrum Noir cardstock. The stamp set used is Party Animals from Avery Elle. The patterned paper is Gina K Designs, Pool Side. I colored the twine with Spectrum Noir TB5.

This will also be entered in this month’s MISTI challenge at Split Coast Stampers. This blue is very close to the Pantone Color of the Year, Brilliant Blue.

You are the Sweetest

Simon Says Stamp has a Stamptember set for Avery Elle. I own a few of their stamps, a lot of patterned paper, and storage envelopes. I had to participate in their Stamptember card Avery Elle link-up. It will also be placed in the Wednesday, Anything Goes challenge:

This card will also be placed in the Mod Squad Challenge for this week to create a thoughtful card for somebody.


This stamp set is called Sweetest. I love the ice cream and Popsicle especially with a face. Each treat was colored with Copic markers. I added sparkle with a clear sparkle pen, then coated the cream and colored popsicle part with Glossy Accents. The stage they are standing on is a Sizzix/Stephanie Bernard embossing folder called Dots.

Ice Cream and Popsicle Birthday Cards

I am in need of summer birthday cards and have a couple of new stamps. My first one is using a layout and CASE of Tina Smith,

I love watching her videos and creating with her ideas. I fell in love with the Avery Elle stamp set she used, so I followed her layout and created this card.

Sweetest Birthday

My next card uses a set by Maymay Made It called Inside Scoop. Love the sentiments included in this set.
