HOORAY! Hello again friends. Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan blog hop. Lights, camera ... cardmaking. Are you ready? This round we are featuring the Broadway Birthday suite of products.
We had a big birthday in our household recently. My middle child turned 16 and is now in the process of getting his driver's license. This suite was the perfect choice for creating him a custom card. The coordinating papers have a strong color palette however I decided to take this suite a little masculine and swapped out the color Lovely Lipstick for Night of Navy & Tranquil Tide. I think this swap out looks fantastic and totally changes the look of this suite / papers.
I created this custom 16th birthday card by hand cutting a one and a six from the Gold Embossed number sheet from the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Papers. You could easily create a custom card to celebrate any year, just swap out the numbers. Since the papers feature metallic gold I opted to use the metallic gold pearls to adorn the Lemon Lime Twist frame.
I tried to match the balloon decor to Ben's card. It worked out pretty close.
Both of my cards feature the Broadway Birthday Stamp set, Broadway Lights Framelits, Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Papers & Metallic Pearls. A full list of supplies can be found below
This hooray balloon card (below) uses the same colors and would be good for any recipient. A good generic birthday card is a nice thing to have at the ready for birthday emergencies. Since I am a mom of 3 boys it seems there is always a birthday emergency (party, gift or card needed at the last minute).
Do you like this harlequin diecut background? I created this using the diamond border die and multiple passes through my Big Shot. Getting the spacing even was easy to achieve by lining up the edge of the die with the pattern openings. I was able to smooth out any unwanted die lines by passing the paper through the Big Shot once again when finished using the thin silicone rubber mat from the Big Shot Embossing Mats.
Thanks for stopping and please know I appreciate YOU and all of your lovely comments. Our next STAR is fellow artisan, Connie Collins. Have a great day!
