Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Build A Birthday - Artful Stampers & Just Add Ink Challenge


Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Nicole's blog. 

Look at this beautiful colour combination that we have to work with this week....they are 2/3rd Regals colours but that didn't stop me turning out a bright birthday card with the use of Build A Birthday and some washi tape. 

Here's my card...

Here are our colours....

Here's the fun sketch from Just Add Ink that inspired the layout of this card...

I also made a Delightful Dijon-coloured envelope from the In Color Envelope Paper pack using the Envelope Punch Board. I'm using this tool SO much more now due to these fun papers. They are slightly thinner than normal card stock so they fold beautifully. I stamped a tone-on-tone birthday candle onto the envelope too. :)

  2. Lovely. They are quite bright looking colours for regales anyway. 😜

  3. Very pretty. I love the addition of the washi tape and the little banners.

  4. So pretty Alison! I love the touch of pink between the cake layers and your use of white to set off these colours and all the sparkly touches too - so beautifully balanced! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  5. Such a gorgeous card and really like the colours you used, they are so pretty together. And love how you were inspired by the sketch too. A very happy card! So glad you shared this with us at Just Add Ink this week!

  6. Love this Alison! It's fresh, bright and also fun - what a great way to celebrate a birthday! Love the colour pops against all the white. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
