Birthday Delivery Sketch challenge

Hello stamping friend! Don’t let the title of this post scare you off; you can use any stamp set to participate in this challenge.

The Paper Craft Crew design team has a great challenge for you this week:


Birthday Delivery SketchChallenge


There’s a lot of leeway with this sketch.  Remember, you can change out the focal shape if you want, or flip the sketch on it’s side, or head! As long as you stay within the basic sketch – the rest is up to you!


Birthday Delivery Sketch challenge

We’ve been having such great weather this past month, that I decided to take my project photos outside, on my deck! I hope you’re not finding that distracting.


Thanks to the wonderful Bundle of the Birthday Delivery stamp set, Birthday Friends Framelits and Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, this card came together in a SNAP! I absolutely love that these 3 products can be purchased bundled together – and you still save 10% off the combined products price! Seriously – you need to buy the Bundle, because some of the Framelits will cut out the images that are in the DSP – that’s what I did here!

Using the Big Shot with the Birthday Friends Framelits, I die cut the poodle image from one of the sheets of the Birthday Memories DSP.  That cute little present was die cut using the same set of Framelits, from another sheet of the DSP.

I tied the colours from the 2 die cuts together by die cutting circles using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, and the Layering Circles Framelits. Pacific Point and Berry Burst cardstock were used, then the die cuts layered on top of them.


Cutting a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Birthday Memories DSP, I wrapped a length of 1/8″ Ribbon in Gold. TIP: To save on ribbon, just wrap along the front, and tape the ends to the back of the front panel, using our Tear & Tape (no need to pull of the adhesive backing).   I cut a small length of 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst, snipped each end at an angle, and glued it to the back of the Pacific Point scalloped circle.

Finally, I layered all the pieces onto the DSP panel, then added a small bow of the 1/8″ Ribbon in Gold.

Of course, I just had to find a sentiment that was worthy of this adorable chi-chi poodle, for the inside!

I took the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set, and inked it in Berry Burst ink.  Don’t you think it suits that beautiful poodle, with her bow?!  The small gift box is in the Birthday Delivery stamp set. I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Pacific Point and Berry Burst to ink it up, then stamp.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
