Time to celebrate!!! Someone is turning three years old this month!
Happy Birthday, Paper Sweeties!
In honor of this happy occasion, Paper Sweeties is having a month-long celebration! You are definitely going to want to join us for this celebration because, not only will Debbie be revealing 4 brand new, adorable stamp sets and 3 coordinating Sweet Cuts die sets this month, but there are going to be prizes--All Month Long, beginning with a Happy Birthday Inspiration Challenge:
Abigail is all decked out in her best party dress, from the Jelly Bean Time stamp set, for this special birthday party, including pink pearl jewelry. She is colored with Copics and I used Liquid Pearls for her jewelry. The dress is paper pieced, and I colored the sash then added sparkly Stickles on the flowers there, and on her shoes. Her party hat, cake, and gift are from the Celebrate stamp set. The cake stamp was perfect for Paper Sweeties' third birthday, with it's 3 candles, and, of course, for Paper Sweeties, there is plenty of pink, sparkly frosting. I fussy cut the gift from a piece of patterned paper and colored the bow and ribbon with an opaque gel pen. The white dots are made with a Snow Marker, which added a fun texture. The table was paper pieced using a stamp from the I'm Having a Tea Party stamp set.
For the birthday banner, from the Hello Friend stamp set, I stamped the banner image twice onto patterned paper, then die cut it with the coordinating Sweet Cuts die in the Be Happy set. Then, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with Versamark ink, and sprinkled it with both gold embossing powder and pink (Kunzite) glitter. I had to heat it from the back to keep the glitter from blowing away, but I really like the subtle touch of pink it adds. You can't see it in this photo, but after adding the sentiment to the banner, I cut just that center section out and popped it up with foam tape onto the other stamped and die cut banner.
Here's the inspiration photo for the Happy Birthday challenge. Don't those colors (and the cupcakes) look yummy? ;)
The inside of this card has the same white frame as on the front of the card, and I've added a patterned scalloped border inside on the top edge. The sweet little balloon is another image from the Celebrate stamp set.
You won't believe how cute the rest of the DT's cards are! Be sure to check them out. Also, Paper Sweeties Alumni Designers are joining us for this most special of occasions, and you'll definitely want to see what they've created, too!
