Dimension for Seize the Birthday

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of "Dimension" on your birthday project.


For my card I used my new frame die by Mama Elephant called Framed Tags.    I mounted it with foam tape for dimension.  The flowers are from SU Bloom With Hope.  I stamped them a second time and fussy cut them after coloring with Copics.  They are mounted with foam tape also.  I added some tiny yellow buttons from my stash to the centers.  The sentiment is a stamp from JoAnn's and it doesn't have a name on it.  It is similar to SU Beautiful Birthday, but is smaller in size.

This photo shows the dimension of the frame and flowers.

Be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will be inspired to play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,

Merry Christmas for Christmas Card Challenges

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the mothers.

Good Morning friends.  We have a color challenge for you today over at Christmas Card Challenges.  You can check out all the details here.


For my card I used SU Old Olive and Whisper White CS.  The white panel is embossed with an older Sizzix EF.  The "Large Poinsettia" #7032H by Sweet Stamps is stamped on vellum and just the leaves and center are colored with markers, on the reverse side.  I used  Art Glitter Glue by Art Institute to adhere it to my card and it doesn't show up under the vellum.  The sentiment is from SU Greetings of the Season (retired) stamped in Old Olive ink.

Now you should check out all the fabulous creations by the design team over at Christmas Card Challenges, you won't be disappointed.  I hope you will join us this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Birthday Wishes

Happy Thursday friends.  We have a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this week our "Toppings" option is use coloring on your birthday project.  You can find all the details for our challenge here.  Remember our challenge ends on May 17th.


I have had this stamp for quite awhile, but this is my first time inking it up.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Promarkers.  I used 3 shades of pink and 2 shades of green.  The centers are yellow.   I really like the way it turned out.  I punched the corners with the new 3 corner punch from SU and matted it on black CS.  I mounted it with foam tape.  The scalloped mat is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20 and the sentiment flag is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 21.  The sentiment is from SU Occasional Quotes.  The pink DSP is from an older Pebbles Garden Party 6x6 pad.

Make sure you check out all the fabulous creations by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us this time.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Joyous Noel

Happy Sunday friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and this week we have a photo challenge for you.


I was inspired by the red in the photo to make my card.  The DSP is from an older Studio Calico Wonderland 6x6 pad.  The border was on the edge of the paper and I cut it off, matted it and placed it across the middle.  The sentiment and image is from Verve Joyous Noel stamped in MFT Electric Red.  I punched the snetiment out with an oval punch and fussy cut the black mat.  The poinsettia image is layered with foam tape between the layers.  Both the image and sentiment are mounted with foam tape.

The designers have made some wonderful cards to inspire you.  Check them out over at Christmas Card Challenges.  I hope you will join us this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,

Season's Greetings for Merry Monday

This is my second post today, please scroll down for my Christmas Card Challenges post.


This week's Merry Monday challenge was to use purple, silver and white on your Christmas card.  I was able to get my card done at the last minute so I am linking it up.
The card base and white panel are Coredinations Heavy White Card.  I used silver foil paper from Hobby Lobby and purple glitter paper from DCWV Glitzy Brights pad.  The silver scallop panel is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.  Seasons Greetings is a Poppy Stamps die and the ornament is cut with SU Delicate Ornaments Thinlets die, mounted with foam tape.  The bow is a Memory Box die.  I don't remember the name of the embossing folder, it is an older one.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday for Seize the Birthday

Hello friends.  It is Thursday and time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday..  There is no option this week, so it is "Anything Goes" for a birthday.

I used the Viva la Verve  April sketch one.
I had to use my favorite Verve flower from the retired set "One Person".  I stamped in on SU Baha Breeze CS, fussy cut it out and layered the large bloom.  I sponged the edges after cutting them out and added a black enamel dot to the centers.  The sentiment is Verve's Happy Birthday Plain Jane.  I love the fonts in this sentiment.  I cut it with MFT Pinking Edge Squares die and matted it with black.   I added the black/white Bakers Twine. The DSP is SU Baha Breeze.

Now check out all the fabulous creations by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I look forward to seeing all your fabulous entries in the gallery.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
