Birthday Blitz - Sweet Pea

I found another way to use that yummy Sweet Pea paper...I think one of my favorite aspects of this paper pack is the houndstooth patterns. I think they are just a really classic graphic element and this package offers it in several colors.

I stamped the Happy Moments presents stamp (it's a Sale-a-Bration can earn it free with any $50 purchase) once each on scraps of three different patterns of paper (all from the Sweet Pea set) and then also on the whisper white cardstock, to serve as the base. I used my fine-tipped scissors to cut the packages out and adhered them to the base image and voila! a fun stack of presents. The patterned papers are what pack the punch on this otherwise simple to make card. The cardstock card base is Rose Red, and the stamped image is matted with So Saffron. The icing on this is the luxe satin ribbon that I just can't get enough of, and is only available through April 30th!

  1. Nice use of the designer paper, I love this!

  2. I love the houndstooth too! Gotta remember to do more paper piecing which is great for that image!

  3. Hi Michelle,
    I subscribe to your blog through Google Reader and when I clicked on Bird Punch Tulips, it could not find your blog. When I went directly to your blog, that particular post does not appear, so there might be a glitch someplace? I don't know if it is on my end or yours, but thought I would let you know in case it's your end. Love your creations!
