Seize The Birthday - Off The Edge


Time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and our theme this time is Off The Edge.  If that's not your thing, you can still play along with any Anything Goes as long as it's birthday-themed.


I die-cut a balloon (Poppystamps), sponged it with distress inks then overlapped it on my smooshed background panel, trimmed it, then added a sentiment from Uniko.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some fab Off The Edge creations, and play along with us.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #240


It's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations and today I've made a more masculine version of the Layered Cake Bake.  The background is one of Helen's stencils (Make Marks 5), and I've stamped the image then fussy cut it.  The chevron stamp is from Mixed Media Grunge, the letters are from Uppercase Alphabet Plate, and the number is from Sketchy Alphabet and fussy cut.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #239


We're back to our normal schedule at STAMPlorations following our 6th birthday party (there's still time to comment for a chance to win).

I needed a get well card for someone, and this one came together very quickly.  The background was in my stash and immediately brought to mind sky and grass.  The Birds of Paradise was also in my stash, cut out but uncoloured.  So a couple of minutes to colour, stick and then stamp the sentiment, and it was ready.

Pop in over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the rest of the team have created, and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate.

STAMPlorations 6th Birthday - Cover Plates


We're wrapping up our birthday celebration at STAMPlorations with Cover Plates.


I used the Zen Doodled Birthday Gifts cover plate to do a whole cut with lightweight pink card, then cut sections in cerise and purple, and jigsawed the pieces in.  (I sprayed the back with temporary adhesive and stuck it to my card base before inserting the coloured pieces.)  The letters are from Uppercase Alphabet die, and the number is stamped from Sketchy Alphabet.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see some gorgeous creations from the rest of the team using Cover Plates, and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win (full details n the blog).  Don't forget about the wishlist linky party too!
