Celebration Inspiration

Welcome to Day Five of Papertrey Ink's November release countdown. Up today: birthdays and other celebrations. We've got quite a line-up of new birthday-themed stamp sets and dies that you're sure to love!

Today's featured products, along with the rest of the November release, will be available at 10 pm EST November 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

My first card features Scene It: Celebration, Birthday Cheer, and Type Strip Numbers III. I started by die-cutting a handful of the banner in a circle (using a Scene It: Celebration die) and stacking theme together. Next I stamped the banner sentiment, from Scene It: Celebration stamp set in Orange Zest. I used the same die-cut and cut a banner circle from red card stock and a pattern from Maile's new Ombre Stripes paper collection, then pieced them in above and below the banner. I added another layer to the circle stack, the one with the stars. It has been stamped in a combination of Limeade Ice and New Leaf. 

The "celebrate" die-cut is from Birthday Cheer. I've enjoyed Holiday Cheer so much, so I was super excited to see this in the November release.

To personalize the card a bit, I added a "27" using the Type Bits Strip die and the Type Strip Numbers III stamp set.

Stamps: Scene It: Celebration, Type Strip Numbers III, Birthday Style

Dies: Scene It: Celebration, Birthday Cheer, Type Bits Strip, Birthday Style

Ink: Limeade Ice, New Leaf, Orange Zest, Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores

Paper: white, Limeade Ice, New Leaf and Pure Poppy card stock; Hawaiian Shores Dots patterned paper; Ombre Stripes Paper Collection

Other: white crochet thread, ink blending tool

Next up is a fun tag to celebrate a 21st birthday. I started by die-cutting a tag base out of Lizzie's Confetti Toss Paper Collection using the Tag Sale #3 die. In the back is a mini slide frame that I die-cut and stamped using Heather's Mini Slide Frame stamps and dies. These are so adorable and such a fun little accent!

The celebrate die-cut, once again, is from Birthday Cheer. I die-cut it from Limeade Ice and sponged on some New Leaf ink. "Your big day" is stamped in VersaMark on vellum and white embossed. For an embellishment I added a ballon from Birthday Style and a string that I die-cut using the Balloon Strings die set.

Stamps: Birthday Cheer, Mini Slide Frame, Birthday Style

Dies: Birthday Cheer, Mini Slide Frame, Tag Sale #3, Birthday Style, Balloon Strings

Ink: New Leaf, VersaMark, Summer Sunrise

Paper: Confetti Toss Paper Collection; Pure Poppy, Limeade Ice, white card stock

Other: True Black baker's twine, enamel dots, foam adhesive

For my last card, I couldn't wait to try some DIY confetti stamping. Lizzie's Confetti Toss set is so fun. The combination of tight and loose confetti groupings, as well as the little individual dots, makes  the stamping part effortless.

The balloons are from Birthday Style, plus Balloon Strings. The sentiment was done with the Birthday Cheer stamps and dies.

Stamps: Birthday Cheer, Birthday Style, Confetti Toss

Dies: Birthday Cheer, Birthday Sytle

Ink: Autumn Rose, Limeade Ice, Sweet Blush, VersaaMark

Paper: Autumn Rose, white, and Limeade Ice card stock, Luxe Silver card stock

Other: white embossing powder, silver sequins
