The Perennial Birthday set and Make Your Own Designer Paper

The Perennial Birthday Kit is a winner!  We are playing with this set Monday Jan 29 at Warsaw 6pm, I have 1 place left, so RSVP quick!

You will each make 2 of the 4 cards from the kit.  Easy to put together and I think these cards have a fun wow factor. 

One person at class will win the pretty box and the box inserts.  

Here's a quick video so you can see the kit.

We will also make our own designer paper and create a card in a treat bag. 

Create your own DSP with the same Perennial Birthday set

I’ve cut the pieces 9 x 6 ½ so you have a bit extra.  Stamp in basic grey, all the flowers, turning the stamp so there’s a more random pattern.

With the dauber, tap it to the ink pad 2-3 taps, then run the dauber on your grid paper to take off excess color, then gently swipe it on your flowers.  I’m using Calypso Coral and either Wild Wasabi or Pear Pizzazz

Then cut out the treat bag with the big shot.  Fold up, adhere.

Make the card back 3 ¼ x 4 ¾ and the whisper white 3 x 4 ½, stamp the “today blooms just for you” in grey.  

Now make the belly band, it’s 1” wide and about 8 ½, wrap it around the treat bag, secure.  Wrap thin white twine (about 18”) and make a bow.  Stamp the small flower and with the dauber color in the flower and leaves.

Punch the flower out with the 1 1/8” scallop punch and then punch out the matching Calypso Coral 1 3/8” scallop circle.  Adhere together,  then add to the band with a dimensions.  

Here's a set of cards made with the same stamp set - I love the versatility of this set. 

I’m using the free Tutti Fruitti cards (free with Sale-A-Bration) with the Perennial birthday stamp set.  Ink is basic grey and the ribbon is also from Sale-A-Bration and is also free with a $50 order.

I like the variation in the cards (email me for an instruction set) and I like a little sparkle.

Not everyone love sparkle so here’s the So Saffron card without sparkle, which do you prefer?

1 place left for Monday so email me for that spot.

Happy Stamping! MaryKate
