Perennial Birthday for Global Design Project #125

Welcome back to my blog.  Today I am sharing some cute notecards made with the new narrow notecards

I am entering them in the Global Design Project colour challenge.

I found this colour combination a bit of a challenge because Daffodil Delight isn't a colour that I regularly use.  I was determined not to let the colour choices defeat me, and after some experimentation I came up with these cute little notecards.  I hope you like them too!

I love Stampin' Up! kits.  The all inclusive ones, such as the Lots of Happy Card Kit and the Soft Saying Card Kit are perfect to take on holiday with you as they contain all the ingredients you need, including a stamp set, to make the cards and they are presented in a pretty box.  I showcased the  Lots of Happy Card Kit in a recent class we all enjoyed making up the cards.  They are also great to make at home!

The Perennial Birthday Project Kit is going to ensure that I don't forget a birthday in the future.  The kit comprises of a gorgeous box that contains dividers, with space to record birthdays for each month, and supplies to make 16 cards.  

There is a coordinating stamp set to this kit, which is purchased as a separate item, and I have used these Perennial Birthday stamps to make my cards today.  On the first one I have used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to create the focal point. 

First, I stamped Happy Birthday in Dapper Denim on to a layer of Whisper White card and also on to the index sheet of the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  Then I cleaned my stamp before inking it up again in Berry Burst.  Next, I created the Berry Burst shadow - line up the image on the index sheet over the image on the card creating a shadow or halo just to the left.  Once happy with the placement use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp on to the actual card.  Hey presto there is a Dapper Denim image with a Berry Burst shadow!

For the background I've repeatedly stamped the dotty images in Daffodil Delight, stamping off on to scrap paper first.  The flowers are stamped, fussy cut and sparkled with a swish from the Wink of Stella glitter brush.  Basic Pearls add the finishing touch!

For this second narrow notecard the base is made from Dapper Denim card and I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends to create the background on the Whisper White layer - colour liberally with the lightest pen, add the darker colour down the centre and blend out using the lightest colour again to create the graduated look.

As before, the flowers are stamped and fussy cut out.  The flower centres are basic pearls coloured with Blends.  So pretty.  

I have had a lot of fun making cards with the stamp set.  I'll put them in my fabulous box.  I'm feeling organised!!  Do you have a list of birthday cards to send over the next few months?

Happy crafting,
