Seize The Birthday using Holiday stamps

Welcome to another Seize The Birthday!  Your challenge today is to use Holiday stamps for a birthday card.  I used two images from the Tim Holtz set Halftone Christmas.  The halftone tree became a pennant shape, and the snowflake became a starburst.  I stamped the pennants using Distress Inks and because the alignment wasn't perfect, I drew a scribbly string - scribbles hide a multitude of sins!  Added a die-cut 'happy' from Winnie & Walter, and 'birthday' from STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Happy.

Our Surprise Party Guest for the next two months is the very talented Tanja from Little Art Cottage.  Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for Tanja's card, and the Design Team's cards.

Fancy being creative with your Holiday stamps?  Come and join us - and if you don't want to follow the theme, you can join in anyway as long as it's a birthday project.


  1. Clever as every my dear friend across the pond! Love the glitzy `happy' :)

  2. Sweet birthday those wonderful snowflakes.

  3. So celebratory, Shirley ... and fun ... the shiny die cut is a real eye catcher! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. Great card Shirley, and I love this colour combination!

  5. This is one seriously amazing card! The "tree" banner, the snowflake 'starbursts, the scribbly string and the shimmery happy...genius! Totally genius!
