Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Birthday Bash and Amazing Birthday


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I made this card with the Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper and the Amazing Birthday stamp set. The patterns are very bold so it doesn't need a whole lot of embellishment. 

The bow was made using the Bow Builder Punch - so cute! I did a little bit of paper piecing with the stamped sentiment just to add some colour and layers. 

Here are the fun colours for this week's challenge:

I used the sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch to help me out this week. :)

  1. So fun...love the Bow Punch and the variety of colors on the Amazing Birthday greeting! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  2. Love the bow and all of the paper piecing. You made a gorgeous card with just one stamp!

  3. This is such a fun card! Perfect for both challenges! I'm wishing I would have gotten that bow punch. Funny your cards make me want to go shopping! ;)

  4. I love, love, love your card Alison - I don't know why, but the blue swirly paper just makes me think of a pinata being burst and this sentiment popping right out (bizarre I know!) I think it just gives the card so much movement. As for the bow - so cute!

  5. Well, I'd say your card is ridiculously amazing! I love that Navy DSP....so cool!

  6. This is a really great use of that stamp and these colors! I love how you used just a little of the Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral so those elements really stand out. Great card!

  7. LOVE.IT! This is such a fun card! Into my faves!

  8. I love this bright happy card!! The combination of this set, the sketch and the colors to create such a fun card worth celebrating! Love it!

  9. This is fabulous! I love that wonderful bold background!! Thank you so much for joining us at the Deconstructed Sketch!
