Happy Birthday!

There is a wonderful little stamp in the Annual Catalog that is very easy to over look.  This stamp is a single wood mount stamp that says Happy Birthday! The wonderful script oc the stamp makes it one of my favorites in the catalog! Stylized Birthday stamp set is perfect for all your birthday card!!!

Stylized Birthday

I just love this stamp so much.  It works well with Designer Series Paper, other stamps, and watercolor!

Today I paired it with one of my favorite Designer Series Papers, Naturally Eclectic. I love the watercolor look of this paper. And the colors are to die for!!!


Pool Party
Tranquil Tide
Lemon Lime Twist
I love theses three colors! They make the world a more beautiful place! And we all could more beauty in our lives!

  • The bold Designer Series Paper pairs well with the script of the Happy Birthday!
  • I kept the design simple so that the stamp could do its thing! The stamp is bold enough that it looks well all alone on the DSP.
  • The ombre Lemon Lime Twist ribbon brings the colors together and adds some visual interest
  • I tried adding some texture to the Pool Party layer.  Actually, several texture impressions.  In the end the plain jane paper won out!  It just goes to prove. In some cases less is more…

Each of your comments makes me smile! Please, comment HERE.

It is always fun to decorate envelopes! Expecially, when it is a special Birthday.  For the envelope I used the same DSP and the Playful Backgrounds stamp set to add a “watercolor look”.  I love using fast fuse adhesive to add the DSP to the back flap of an envelope!

The card base is a standard A2 card.  To make the base you want a piece of Lemon Lime Twist that measures 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches.  You will score and burnish it at 4 1/4 inches on the 8 1/2 side. The next layer, Tranquil Tide, is 5 3/8 by 4 1/8 inches.  The DSP layer is 5 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches.  The Pool Party on the same layer is 5 1/4 by 1 1/2 inches.  They over lap to make a layer that is 5 1/4 by 4 inches. The Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon covers where the two papers overlap.   The three happy birthday layers are Lemon Lime Twist 3 3/4 by 2 3/4 inches. Tranquil Tide 3 5/8 by 2 5/8 inches.  And Whisper White 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches.
