SUOC192 Picture Perfect Birthday

The theme this time on SUO Challenges is “Monochromatic cards”.  I love the Sweet Soiree Designer Paper as I’ve mentioned before, and grabbed it first when I thought about the monochromatic theme because I knew it had a couple prints with the same color tones.  AND, I love the silver accents in it!  Can’t wait until I see what everyone else has done with this theme!



Here are the details and photo inside:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • I adhered two different 2-3/4 x 4 pieces of Sweet Soiree DSP together on top of each other.
  • I wrapped some of the new ribbon available as a Sale-a-Bration item to hide the seam.
  • I used the Layering Circles to cut the scallop circle from Calypso Coral cardstock, then stamped the confetti from Picture Perfect Party with Calypso Coral Ink randomly in the background.
  • I had a Silver Metallic circle already cut out and on my desk and added it to the front.
  • On a larger Whisper White circle, I stamped the greeting with Memento Black Ink and then more confetti sprinkles in Calypso Coral Ink.
  • On scrap Whisper White, I stamped the two candles with Calypso Coral Ink and hand-cut them out, the flames I “had” to use Daffodil Delight ink.  They were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Isn’t that sweet?  I love how it turned out!  Make sure to check out the rest of the SUOC Designers to see what they have done with theme.

Thanks for stopping by!

CCMC491 Picture Perfect Birthday

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are now settled back into a routine.  As much as I love them, it is nice to get back to “normal” once they are over.  My decorations are still up, but they will come down this weekend.


We have a nice, bright color challenge for you today over on Create with Connie and Mary!  I had a lot of fun with it!  The colors in the Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper worked perfectly!


So here is my card!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top is a 3-3/4 x 5 piece of Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper.
  • Across the front is a 3/4 x 5-1/2 strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  • The greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday was stamped with Bermuda Bay on the Oval from Stitched Shapes, cut from Whisper White cardstock.  It was stamped again on scrap Whisper White cardstock with Berry Burst Ink, then the words “Celebrate” and “Fabulous” cut out and added on top of the Bermuda Bay ones.
  • The noise makers were stamped with Peekaboo Peach, Bermuda Bay and Berry Bliss, then cut out and assembled together, then added to the front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Oval was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Three of the pink Adhesive Sequins were lined up on the Bermuda Bay strip for some extra bling!


Isn’t that a fun card?  LOVE it!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary!
