Seize the Birthday - use Tags

It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings Option" of using tags, big or small, on your birthday project.


For my card I used the SU Tag Topper punch to make my tag and rounded the bottom corners with a punch.  I sponged the background with Bashful Blue ink and a scalloped circle punch. I diecut the grass with MFT Grassy Edges.  I stamped this cute pig from MFT Hog Heaven and colored him with promarkers.  I fussy cut him out and then added some Wink of Stella to the cupcake icing and cherry.  The image is mounted with foam tape and the tag is also mounted with foam tape.  I added some pink ribbon and tied it with twine.  The sentiment is from the same set and is on a banner cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.  The background diecut is with MFT Four Way Chevron Cover die in SU Soft Sky CS.  The sun ray DSP is from MME Adventure 6x6 pad.  The card base is Coredinations Premium Cardstock (110#) from JoAnn's.

Now check out all the cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday and see the creative cards/tags they have made.  Hope you play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

Hope Your Day Is Sprinkled With Fun

This is my second post today.  Scroll down for my STB post or click HERE.


This card is for the JUGS Word Week (Water) challenge 

and I used this week's MFT Sketch Challenge

and The Paper Players - "You Light Up My Life"

I used MFT PI Sprinkler Girl for the image, colored her with Copics and paper-pieced her swimsuit. The sentiment is from the same set, but I cut it apart to make it fit in the space.  I masked the image and stamped grass with SU Pear Pizzazz and an old DOTS Hillside Grass stamp.  I sponged clouds with SU Bashful Blue ink and a punched scalloped circle.  The DSP is from Recollections Bold Basics paper pad.  I matted everything with black and the scalloped mat is cut with MFT Blueprints 20 die.  I used MFT Gerbera Daisy die (no longer available) to make the sun.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate you taking time to leave a comment.

I also want to welcome, Monika Reeck, as our Surprise Party Guest for the months of August and September.  Welcome, Monika!  Please stop by her blog and leave her some love! Glad to have you with us Monika.




For my card I used SU Primrose Petals CS (retired)  and Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower dies for the flowers and mat. I sponged the petals with Primrose Petals ink and shaped them with a stylus.  I added white enamel dots to the centers. The sentiment is SU Beautiful Birthday (retired).  The leaves are from SU Botanical Builders Framelits cut from a scrap piece on my desk.   I punched the border with an EK Success Border Punch.  That is it for my card.

JUGS - Let's Hear It for the Girls


I made this card for a lady at church and am entering it in JUGS "Let's Hear It for the Girls".  It is definitely a girly card, which I love making.

For my card I used Taylored Expressions Circles Cutting Plate in SU Bashful Blue.  The flowers are made with Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose stamps and matching Botanical Wings dies.  I stamped the flowers in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink on SU Naturals Ivory CS and then shaped the petals and sponged ink on the petal ends.  I added pearls to the centers.  The leaves are stamped in SU Old Olive and then sponged with Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz inks.  They are mountd with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Just Rite's Large Fancy Sentiments.  I inked around the edges to make it stand out a little from the background, and mounted it with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.

Happy Stamping,
