Just Add Ink #368 – Twist (Birthday for Christmas)

I’m not sure I’m the most popular person on the Just Add Ink Design Team at the moment after suggesting this juicy little challenge!

Who’s up for using a Birthday stamp set to create a Christmas card???

Image may contain: text

To meet the guidelines of this challenge, you must use a set that is traditionally used for birthdays (or contains a birthday sentiment) – and use it to make a Christmas card!!!

Of course, making a Christmas card with just a birthday set is tricky, so feel free to add in another set to tie your project together.

I used the Birthday Delivery stamp set – which I have been promising myself to get inky for a while now.

The characters are just so cute!

Here’s the sweet little girl looking in on a lit up Christmas tree…

The ‘greetings’ is from the same stamp set, but I’ve borrowed the Christmas from Santa’s Sleigh stamp set.

The white on white embossing paste was a lovely texture for my wall…

Please join us for this fun challenge.  It seems a little strange at first – but embodies what I love about challenges – it stretches your creativity to a really fun place!

Enter your creation over at the Just Add Ink blog.

The other design team cards are here too – there’s a great assortment of wonderful creativity.

Hopefully they loved the creative challenge as much as I did!

Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop: Birthday Theme

It’s my birthday, which makes it the perfect reason to have another team blog hop!

With all the originality I could muster, the theme for this hop is ‘birthday’!

Be sure to click on the link at the end of each post to take you to the next blog or Facebook page and see what the talented Paper Adventures team have created.


It’s super handy having your birthday in the same month as pre-order!!!

Happy birthday to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am most excited about the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle.

I have been waiting for a Happy Birthday Thinlit – and the coordinating stamp set is stunning (to a font nerd like me).

So of course, it was first on my pre-order list!

Using this bundle, and the cute little girl stamp from the Birthday Delivery stamp set (another new catalogue gift… from me to me!), I made this gorgeous balloon overload birthday card.

I love that many of the new Stampin’ Up! products coordinate with products we already have – like the Balloon Bouquet punch!

And how amazing is that birthday thinlit!!!

And did you spy the cuter-than-cute bow holding all the balloons together?

Blank of course, so I can fill it in once I've worked out just how much I need!

Pre-tied bows in the 2017-2019 In Colors are available on 1st June!


Since I’m all into buying my own birthday presents – I make it very easy for my family – I thought a gift voucher was in order.

This is the gift voucher holder I made to keep it safe…

I carried over the theme of the little girl and colours from the balloons.

You’ll notice the voucher has been left blank… so I can fill it in once I’ve worked out just how much I need!
