Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Happy Birthday projects

Hi friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! This month celebrating birthdays is the theme for the projects we are sharing. These projects were created by talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we share projects with various design styles. You may have arrived from Sandra Roberts' blog. What a wonderful birthday project!

Art Gallery stamp set and die bundle

My project features the Art Gallery bundle paired with the Dandy Garden designer series paper. While I created a birthday card this versatile stamp set bundle can be used to send I'm sorry, congratulations, good luck, best wishes, and more! 
Art Galley stamps with Floral Gallery dies

I used a piece of designer series paper (DSP) from the Dandy Garden pack that features the new Misty Moonlight In Color. Then I incorporated the colors in the DSP in other elements of my card - layering a Floral Gallery floral die cut in white cardstock on a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock and using Misty Moonlight ink for the birthday greeting on another die cut from the Floral Gallery dies. 

I added bling using the Genial Gems and a bit of gilded leafing on the edge of the cardstock. I ran tape runner - in a not so straight line!- along the left edge of the DSP and covered it with gilded leafing. Although it's not particularly straight or even, neither are the lines in the DSP 😊

I'm loving the gilded leafing, I'm a big fan! Are you a fan, too? Please leave me comment sharing why or why not. Thanks!

Stamping is fun!


  1. I've got to play more with that gilding - such a nice look.

  2. Terri, very pretty card! I have not tried gilding, but you have shown me that maybe I should!

    1. Thank you! Once you start using it, you want to add gilding to every card :)

  3. Terri, what a cool card. Misty Moonlight is such a great blue. TFS

  4. wow, the gilding really adds something amazing!! And the Misty Moonlight is such an elegant and stunning choice.

  5. Love the Gilded Leafing and using tape runner or tear and tape is the easiest way to use it. It creates a lovely rich gold.

  6. Nice monotone look with a splash of gold!

  7. Great idea to use the die cut without any stamping!

  8. Love Misty Moonlight! I have not used the gold gilded leafing even though I bought it back in December! You've inspired me to try it out with Stampin' Seal!

  9. Love your card Terri. Love how you used the die cut with no stamping..Great card
