Belated Birthday- Three in One!




Hi Stampers!  

I have so many birthdays in September that I am having a hard time keeping up, so I decided to create a “belated” birthday card, just in case…:-)



This card incorporates the bright fun colors of this week’s ColourQ CQC103 Challenge along with the Freshly Made FMS3Sketch Challenge ( as you can see, I flipped the sketch and moved the embellishments to the left for balance:-)).  

Also,  since it has flowers it qualifies for The PaperPlayers PP64 Animals or Plants Challenge. 

If you have the time, check out the links above to each site, the samples are gorgeous!

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ and emboss a piece of Wisteria Wonder with the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Poppy Parade with the Petals—A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.

Use Stampin’ Write markers in Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral to color the flower image and stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock (I colored a few of the flowers with Calypso Coral and then added a bit of Wisteria Wonder to tie the two together). 

Trim and mount onto Poppy Parade (not to be confused with how I originally posted this color on Splitcoast and continually try to type it - with one less “p” and an additional “o”-oops, talk about embarrassing!) and then again onto Whisper White cardstock.

Use the Lace Ribbon Border Punch with Whisper White to create the border along the bottom.  Use the 1 3/8” Circle Punch along with the Crimper Tool to create the rolled flowers from Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral cardstock.

Adhere all of the layers together, add the sentiment (also using markers to color) and finish off with pearls. 

Stamp Sets:  Just Believe, Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess set)

 Ink: None- all Stampin’ Write Markers- Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Wisteria Wonder

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Wisteria Wonder

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Petals—A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches- Decorative Label, 1 3/8” Circle, Lace Ribbon Border, Bird Builder, Crimper Tool, Pearls

So what do you think?  I personally tend to gravitate more to the burgundy hue of red versus the orange, but I must admit, the more I use Poppy Parade and combine it with other colors, the more it is starting to “grow” on me.  I believe it looks crisp with the Wisteria Wonder and White- so is it starting to “grow” on you too?

Thanks again for stopping by!   I hope all of you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
