More Birthday Inspiration

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink June countdown! 

Today's group post is focused on birthdays!  I bring you a look at the Hooray stamp set and papers by Lizzie Jones. This is an occasion to celebrate!  Every item being showcased today, by the PTI design team, is something to get excited about.  You're gonna love it all!  
Check out the birthday ensemble I've assembled for you today, and be sure to hang in there until the end, I've got a peek of my new Ahoy stamp set too.
This adorable party hat is perfect for the star of the day.  It was created using the Party Hat die and embellished with a few stamps from the Hooray stamp set.  It was topped with an adorable little poof created with a bit of black baker's twine, here how to make one of your own.  Also stapled a couple ribbon ties into place before embellishing.
The aqua mist grossgrain ribbon was glued and scrunched into place with some hot glue.  Black die cuts, from the Party Hat die, were used to finish off this special hat.
This Cupcake Box die is the cutest!!!  It was cut from pattern vellum, wrapped with raspberry fizz baker's twine and topped with a die cut "birthday".  The black cardstock sentiment was simply tied into place with the bow.
A matching card to finish off the ensemble. 
My inspiration for today blog post actually began with this little link, or the photo above. It sparked the card design, the colors used, and the pop of black that I chose to work with.  
The Hooray stamp set and papers were a perfect match.
These die cut layered stars are from the Party Hat die. 
As I mentioned above, here a quick look at my new stamp set... Ahoy.  This picture does this simple card no justice, the watercolor stamping for the waves look so much better in person.  I've got to catch the sun in just the right spot during the day to get the best photos, I obviously caught it at the wrong time for these shots.  Anyways, the waves were stamped in a color combo of aqua mist, spring rain and smokey shadow.
I topped it all off with a die cut rope and anchor and finished the card off with a sentiment.  All done up in smokey shadow ink.

Well, that concludes today's look at the new Hooray stamp set and papers, and the Ahoy stamp set. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning June 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.

  4. The ribbon on the party hat makes it special. I love the "ahoy" party stamp because it is so hard to find stamps appropriate for men.

  5. Brilliant party project Maile.
