Something Sweet for STB!

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday everyone! It’s time for a new challenge, at Seize the Birthday and this time our “Toppings” option is Sweet Treats! But remember, if “Toppings” isn’t your thing, it’s always “Anything Goes” Birthday!

My card:

What could be sweeter than a great big birthday cake, with lots and lots of frosting! I thought this image from the Life’s Adventure stamp set, would be perfect for our “Topping” option. I pulled the fun, bright colours from the DSP I used for the background and found the perfect sentiment from the Something to Say set, to finish things off.

The inspiration for the layout, comes from this week’s sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

New Sketch at Sunday Stamps!

Happy Sunday stampers! I do hope that everyone is having a great weekend. It’s time for a fun, new sketch at Sunday Stamps!

Our challenge:

P1150990

I thought our sketch was perfect for showing off some of my favourite DSP from the All Abloom stack  - I just think the combo of colours is so pretty!

It’s hard to tell, but I did use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make my three tags. I just cut them down a little to work with the sketch. And of course, I had to add just a few more flowers to one of the tags. Although, they do look a little lost against that busy pattern, but I do love my flowers!

Please do check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to be inspired by what they have come up with! Holly (creator)MarieStephKathyaAngelAlyson and a big welcome to our newest DT member Leena!

Black and White for STB

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday everyone! It’s time for a new challenge, at Seize the Birthday and this time our “Toppings” option is Black and White! But remember, if “Toppings” isn’t your thing, it’s always “Anything Goes” Birthday!

My card:

Once I got over the idea of not adding any colour to my card (and I really wanted to add some “pop” of colour!) this card came together pretty quickly.  

I wanted to create something a bit more masculine, since I am in dire need of some. Although I didn’t add very many, I think it could also be quite feminine, by adding a few embellishments.

As always, our challenge is open for two weeks, until September 9th so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.
