Social Stamping | celebrate

Hello!  Thank you for joining us for another Social Stamping Blog Host – the monthly blog hop where my friends join me to share projects made with a specific theme.  Today’s theme is “celebrate”. You can see the main blog host post by clicking here and a full list of participants.  The hop aims to link by next button but if there’s any broken links or pages not going where they should, the main post is where you’ll find all the info.

I love celebrating birthdays.  Giving gifts – cards and presents – is definitely one of my love languages.  So being able to make personalised cards (and presents) is my favourite way to spend my crafting time.

I made this birthday card for my sister-in-law.  It uses the From All of Us stamp set – which I really love for so many reasons but the main one is that there’s 5 animals and 5 of us at Papercraft HQ – so it turns into a bit of a family portrait!

We’re still debating who the monkey of the family is 😛 but I decided to colour the ostrich pink and make her into a flamingo!  Perhaps a bit of a stretch, but poetic license is the beauty of making cards!  I’m definitely not a master of colouring but Stampin’ Blends make it fun to have a go!

The font in the From All of Us stamp set is awesome and it has a happy birthday stamp, so I’m happy!!!

The DSP for this card is from the World of Good Speciality for the circle and Forever Greenery for the strip.  It might seem strange to mix DSP themes but I love the contrast!!!  You’ll find in most packs that the reverse side is more subtle than the main themed side.
