Sweet Birthday

February 8, 2011 | 7 comments

The lovely Karen Thomas led me to another Challenge blog recently called The Play Date Cafe.


This is their colour challenge for the week PDCC67.


How about those colours????


This isn’t a Stampin’ Up! challenge site so we aren’t given exact colours. It’s up to you what colours you get from those shown.


The colours I’ve selected are Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink and Cherry Cobbler.  I wanted to use current colours otherwise I might have gone with Brilliant Blue instead of Pacific Point as it’s a little deeper and not so bright.


The challenge allows you to create a card, 3D item, scrapbook page, or any other form of craft item (even those not stamping and paper craft related…..).


I decided I’d make a 3D item and a coordinating card.


Here’s what I came up with.


Birthday set


The Mini Milk Carton idea is from the IB&C. Of course my colours are different and how I’ve embellished it. The layout for the card is from Clean & Simple and is Sketch #38.


Stamps: Got Treats, Party This Way
Card: Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Subtles Pattern Stack (Pretty in Pink)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point (Markers and/or inkpads)
Accessories:Rich Razzleberry 1/8” Taffeta ribbon, Big Shot, Mini Milk Carton Die.


Till next time….

    Neat projects, Nikki, and we are so glad you found us and played along! I used Brilliant Blue on my card, as I don’t have Pacific Point yet, but I thought it was neat that you and I both thought of similar SU colors. 😀 Thanks for playing with us at the Play Date Cafe this week; hope to see you again soon!
