Print Poetry DSP for a Starry Birthday

Print Poetry Builder Brad Stampin Up Birthday1

Print Poetry DSP is a great new designer series paper stack found in the Spring 2013 catalog.  Among my favorite prints, is this one that reminds me of Van Gogh’s A Starry Night.  With intricate details and small crumb cake hearts, I created this Birthday Card using a complementary polka dot pattern also from the Print Poetry DSP.  The adorable embellishment is a Designer Builder Brad customized for the occasion using the cupcake stamp from the Itty Bitty Wood stamp set and adhered between the builder brad pieces.  So fun!

A Rockin’ Birthday Card

 

This is one rockin’ pink birthday card! I am very excited to share this project with you. Here, I paired Melon Mambo Cardstock with Pretty In Pink Cardstock and added some bold black details and embellished with silver using Silver Glimmer Paper and Silver eyelets. My experiment with the Crop-a-Dile continues… and another success! I don’t know how it works – but it looks great every time! This time, I made the eyelet go through all layers of the card front – which I would recommend since it helps the layers stay flat. This project was incredibly fun to create!

PAPER: Melon Mambo Cardstock, Pretty In Pink Cardstock, Basic Black Cardstock, Silver Glimmer Paper.

STAMP SETS: Blue Ribbon Wood / Blue Ribbon Clear, Everything Eleanor Wood / Everything Eleanor Clear,

TOOLS & EMBELLISHMENTS: 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Crop-a-dile (from Amazon), Scallop Dots Ribbon Basic Black, Dimensionals, Large Silver Eyelets (from Amazon).Bring on the Cake Wood / Bring on the Cake Clear.

Summer Starfruit Sparkles with Hardware

Hardware Embellishing!  This is my first project with my new Crop-a-Dile.  I discovered this tool at my local craft store (unfortunately Stampin’ Up does not sell it anymore) and I ordered it from Amazon to come with a whole case of different color eyelets.  I used the Large size to create the holes for my Scallop Dots Ribbon Basic Black.  I love adding unexpected elements to projects.  I think the industrial feel of the metal eyelets is a great contrast to the feminine bow and sparkle details.  I’m excited to keep practicing with this technique.  What a fun tool!
