Birthday Blast

By | April 7, 2017

Hi there

I’m not enjoying the change over from Summer to Winter.  After getting over my sore throat my body decided it would be good to have a dose of sinus added into the mix!  Thankfully I’m now feeling better and able to breathe.

Back in November I received this beautiful card from Stampin’ Up! for being in the Top 5 for recruiting in New Zealand – it was a big surprise and a wonderful honour.

Inside the box is a little charm – which I will show you soon – which was accompanied by a handwritten card from Shelli and Sara.

I loved the design of this card  so I created some birthday cards using the design as a base and a few touches of my own.

First up we have Peekaboo Peach

Sweet Sugarplum

Flirty Flamingo

and finally Watermelon Wonder.

I’ve used the Envelop Paper for the DSP mat behind the stamped sentiment.  Envelope paper is great to use on your projects (not just for making envelopes) as one side is patterned and the other side is plain.  Both stamped images are from the Birthday Blast stamp set.  The background image is stamped in the coordinating colour of the card stock and the sentiment is stamped in Memento Black.  When I cut the lengths of Silver Sequin trim some of the sequins fell off so I adhered them to the card as my ‘bling’.

I have a very exciting weekend ahead – tomorrow I will be catching up with my fellow demonstrators from around New Zealand (and some Aussie ones too) for our OnStage Local event.  This is a highlight for any demonstrator as we get a sneak peak at new products that will be coming out come 1 June 2017 in the new catalogue.

Have a great weekend.
