Birthday Bash Sentiments

Hello and welcome! Hooray, this is the last day of the Papertrey Ink release countdown! And I am extremely happy to be sharing Birthday Bash Sentiments with you today! Birthday Bash Sentiments is not your usual sentiment set. It includes a super fun and festive mix of birthday sentiments, created by Alli Miles. This set will be available on the the 15th.

I hope to show you just how fun and versatile these sentiments can truly be...
First up, a build your own birthday cake. A few of the sentiments seemed to be just the right size to stack into a cake. Can you see it?! The bottom Simply Chartreuse layer, the middle Orange Zest, then a Spring Rain layer and topped it off with a candle from the same set.
For a bit more color I used a few of the die cut and stamped tickets, from Just The Ticket (also available on the 15th), on either side of the white panel and embellished with True Black buttons. For the next card, I couldn't help but pair these fun birthday sentiments up with a cupcake from an older set, Cupcake Collection. Started by stamping "It's A Celebration" (from Birthday Bash Sentiments) to create a pattern paper in True Black onto a white card stock circle. I love the clean and modern feel this created.
Embellished the top corner with some more fun colored tickets (Simply Chartreuse & Raspberry Fizz) and buttons (Hawaiian Shores & Simply Chartreuse).
Embellished the bottom corner with a cupcake from Cupcake Collection. Layered a Raspberry Fizz cupcake top over a Hawaiian Shores cupcake bottom. Finished it off with one last Raspberry Fizz button and attached it all to a Hawaiian Shores 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" card base.
Next up, I paired the "HAPPY" & "Birthday" with It's Official (also available on the 15). Created my own hand stamped pattern paper strip with a few images from It's Official (stamped in Versamark onto Pure Poppy) and tied some bakers twine around it.
Stamped "HAPPY" in Pure Poppy, cut each individual letter out and layered them over a bingo card (stamped in True Black) from It's Official. Attached the bingo card over the hand stamped strip and finished off the sentiment by stamping "birthday" in true black onto the kraft card base.
And finally, a bit more of a softer take. This time I paired Birthday Bash Sentiments with another older set, Life. Stamped the flower sprigs in Versamark onto Smokey Shadow cardstock and rounded the corner. For the focal panel I die cut the Spiral Note Book Page Die (also available on the 15th) from Soft Stone cardstock, stamped with note book lines in Smokey Shadow and rounded the bottom corner.
Stamped the flower sprigs onto the note book page in melon berry and nestled "Happy Birthday" and "to You" together (stamped in True Black), to create the perfect sentiment. Wrapped it with some Harvest Gold twill ribbon around the top and layered a couple Harvest Gold buttons.
So there you have it! I hope I have inspired you to pull out your sentiment sets and bring them to life!
There is much more countdown fun for you to see! Stop by and check out what Nichole Heady, Alli Miles, Niki Estes, Dawn McVey & Heather Nicholes have in store for you today!
Hope you enjoyed!

  10. Love the simplicity of the first one. I'm so drawn in by the second one's colors and striking bkgd. The third is so cool spelling Happy in the Bingo card and that twine is perfection! But the last one is my fav. I love how you tucked that big button behind the note paper and the colors are unexpected, which I love. I have to get that die. THanks for sharing!
