Hey Spotify, Play Happy Birthday!

This idea has been circling my mind for quite some time and I’m super excited to bring it to life!

It’s my take on the Spotify Glass Plaques – but in card format. The artwork emulates the screen when listening to a song on Spotify (a popular music streaming service). I’ve cut it in black vinyl to give it a luxurious feel.

The theme for this card was inspired by the gift – a vintage typewriter plant pot. It’s for a friend who turned 40 this week and I can see it being the perfect addition to her craft desk!

The typewriter is from a retired set that I haven’t been able to part with yet – PS You’re the Best stamp set. I’ve stamped it in Misty Moonlight ink and coloured with Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight Blends.j

The flowers are from the Art Gallery stamp set, which coordinates with the background DSP for this card – Fine Art Floral. I love the texture of this DSP and it worked beautifully with my vintage theme. Turning 40 is a perfect vintage – don’t you agree!

The code at the bottom of the panel is real – when you scan it on the Spotify app it plays Happy Birthday. I love an interactive card!

Happy birthday wishes have never been so much fun!!!

What’s Your Style? PS, You’re The Best

There’s this super cute stamp set on page 48 of the catalogue that I couldn’t go past.

PS You’re the Best is quirky & fun – and so easy to make cards with!

I made two styles of card.  The first is Clean & Simple (CAS) using the typewriter as the centrepiece and a Blackbery Bliss, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate & Whisper White colour theme.

The fonts in the stamp set are a mix of vintage & classic – and include a perfect mix for a variety of occasions.  Although, secretly, I’m looking forward to getting out my typewriter and making some sentiments of my own!

It would also match well with the font in the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.


The second card is much more fussy – taking advantage of the vintage tones of the stamp set.

I’ve added in the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut DSP, Subtle Embossing Folder and some grungy background stamping.

The colours are the same – Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate & Whisper White.  The Crushed Curry DSP is from the Tea Room Speciality.

Which cards matches your style???  My typical style is much more the CAS one on the left – but I had so much fun breaking from tradition and making the card on the right!PS You're The Best | kelly kent
