Light 'Em Up Birthday Bash Birthday Card

by Joanne James14. May 2015 08:05

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie And Mary and this week we have a sketch challenge for you - my favourite!

 

This is a great card for using up scraps of DSP so I set to work with my Birthday Bash Speciality DSP and Birthday Bash Stamp set to create today's card:

I let the DSP drive the colour scheme for my card so used a Crushed Curry base with a panel of Night Of Navy down the left hand side, which I then overlaid with four co-ordinating rectangles of patterned paper. I then added a piece of Night of Navy seam binding ribbon to cover the join and for my focal point stamped the candles from the 'light 'em up' stamp in the Birthday Bash set in navy on Whisper White, having masked off the words first. I coloured this with my Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry Stampin' Write markers and layered this circle onto another of Night of Navy and two scalloped circles, one each in Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral. I also punched the candle flames out of Tangerine Tango using my owl builder punch - a small touch, but looks so much better than navy ones! To finish, I stamped the sentiment, this time masking off the candles, in navy in the right hand corner.

I made this card with the ladies in my Stamp-A-Stack class last week and they loved it, so I hope you like it too. Don't forget if 'Birthday Bash' is on your wishlist, it will be retiring on 2nd June so don't leave it too late to place your order. 

That's all from me today - I look forward to seeing your takes on this week's sketch in the gallery. 

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

This is a wonderful birthday card especially with the ribbon embellishment. I also really like all of the layers you gave the stamped candles!

Aww...Birthday Bash, my current favorite!  It makes such a bright and cheerful card.  This was a great sketch for Birthday Bash since it shows off several patterns - great card!

This is such a cute card! You have convinced me to purchase the Balloon Bash stamp if only for the candles and "Light Them Up!" sentiment. (It is one of the few that I have resisted buying from the Occasions catalog...)  That awesome bow pulls the design together, too!

I love how fun and bright this is! This was a perfect sketch to use up some of our scraps, I did the same thing. Smile
