Picture Perfect Birthday - Stampin’ Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Picture Perfect Birthday Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from Kim McGillis' Blog. I just love what she has created!


Today, I will be showcasing the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Picture Perfect Party Suite of products. I just love how these fun products can add pop to any celebration. As you can see in my projects below, there are so many possibilities.    



For today's projects, I created a gift box and matching card. For the gift box, I used the Lots To Love Box Framelits Dies to cut out my box from some Whisper White Cardstock. Next, I took a piece of Vellum Cardstock and used one of the stamps from the set to stamp repeatedly in Versamark Ink. I added some Silver Embossing Powder to the stamped images and heat set them to create the party-style bottom layer of my "belly band". For the next layer, I took some Lemon Lime Cardstock, folded it lengthwise and snipped tiny slits almost all the way through to create a fringed look. I also added a thinner layer of light green glimmer paper from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper to the center of the fringed lime cardstock. For the party sticks, I simply stamped the first layer of the bow stamp in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and then used my Sponge Dauber to add some Bermuda Bay Ink to the bottom half for an ombrΓ© look. I stamped off one before stamping my intended image for a softer effect. For the second step of this stamp, I stamped the same colors in full strength.  I did the same for the other bow, except I reversed the colors. I stamped the frilly fringed image twice, one in Bermuda Bay and one in Lemon Lime Twist and added them to the base of my bows. I added one bow to the top of some wooden dowels, along with a piece of Silver Mini Sequin Trim. I used my Sponge Dauber to ink up some Whisper White Baker's Twine in each color and added them to my sticks. I stamped my "Happy Birthday" sentiment and added it to the top of my bows and added them to my gift box. To finish off my box, I added a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment and that finished off my box. 




 For the matching card I basically did all the same steps. The only difference is that I added a panel of cardstock that was embossed using the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder before adding my "belly band" and sticks. I also added some of the DSP behind the band and instead of wooden dowels, I made the sticks out of paper from the Wood Textures DSP Stack.  



This suite of products was so fun and inspiring that I created a few other projects using the colors that coordinated with this suite. I will include them below. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.
