Endless Birthday Wishes, PP208 & STB

Greetings, Friends! This week LeAnne has a wonderful challenge for us at The Paper Players, to make a clean and simple child's birthday card. 

I had an idea to use the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set, which I am inking up for the first time. As my creation progressed, I kept adding layers and embellishments and kind of forgot about the clean and simple part of this challenge! Oops, sorry, LeAnne! I hope all the white space at least keeps it clean.

There is an "anything goes" challenge going on at Seize the Birthday, so I am linking up my card with them, too.

Photopolymer! I have more and more stamps made of this wonderful material and I love them. They are less expensive, do not require mounting, stick wonderfully to the blocks and make perfect alignment a breeze. No Stamp-A-Ma-Jig needed for this card! 

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Endless Birthday Wishes
Card Stock: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry
Ink Pads: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Tools: Big Shot, Designer Frames Embossing Folder, Extra arge Oval Punch
Accessories: Brights Candy Dots, Brights Buttons, Cotton Thread

Thanks for joining me today and please visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players!

Inky hugs :)

Sandy, this card is amazing! I love the lines of repeated sentiments. So I've added Endless Birthday Wishes to my endless list of "must have" stamp sets! Thanks a lot! ;-)

The first thing I noticed was the cool way you used the set to make the repeated words, awesome!

All the elements you added just round off the card perfectly, and it is very crisp and fresh looking! Love it!

Super cute card! I love those words making diagonal stripes. Very fun!

Andrea W said...

Very creative! Like everyone else, I too love the way you used the words in the stamp set. You really maximized it's potential and inspired me to give it a second look. Fantastic card!

Love the stamped background, looking like a beautiful, great, wonderful DSP. I like the offset layer with the three candy dots and I adore the oval frame with the cake stamped in it. Great card. :)

LeAnne said...

This set has so many possibilities and I love how you stamped the background with some of the sentiments! Fun & easy way to get even more use from this set! No problems on the banners, either...they add a nice little punch to your cute card!

Love how you created your repeated sentiment Sandy - I so wish we could get that set in the UK!!! A great bright CAS birthday card that would suit both young and the young at heart!

Ventured over here form LeAnne's blog when I saw she tagged you! I wanted to stop by to say hi!! Your card is marvelous, so festive and I like the pretty oval frame for your cake!

Sandy, I love the colors you used - and I also love the oval frame. I also love the movement you created on your card with the stamped sentiments and the flag banners. Fabulous card.
