Birthday Ensemble

January 19th, 2008

Happy Saturday!  I hope you’re having a great weekend and have plenty of time to stamp.  🙂  It’s my turn to host a Challenge for the eclectic Paperie Birthday Party.  Every birthday needs a card and a gift so my challenge is for you to make a Birthday Ensemble – a birthday card and matching tin, box, bag or other container to either be the gift or hold the gift.


I covered a ProvoCraft lunch tin with My Mind’s Eye Confetti Party designer papers and it’s filled with cards for all occassions for my friend’s birthday.  Maya Road chipboard letters were “painted” with Versamagic Dew Drop Chalk ink in Red Magic and embossed with Irridescent Ice embossing powder.  (Holy Cow! All three of those things I just linked are ALL on sale!) The sentiment in black (“A small thing done in great Love is a great thing”) and the olive vine at the bottom are from the upcoming SU Sale-a-bration rub-on set called Love & Happiness.  White flowers from the same rub on set are used at the bottom of the card.  They went on so easily and it is so cool having them in four colors in the one package!


Before covering the top of the tin I went around the edge with a red Copic marker.  The lid was then covered with two pieces of paper and a stack of Primas was used to cover the seam.

The card is a mini tall card 6.5″ x 3.25″ to fit in a SU small open ended envie.  Cardstock used is Prism Blush Red Medium and Frosted Kiwi.  Sentiment is from Paper Trey.  I’m really excited about this bright and happy set.  I’m going to need more of this paper – it’s so FUN!

Talk about FUN…check this out…


You can win a Stampendous prize pail similar to this one (exact contents will vary) just by playing my challenge!  How cool is that?  Check out all the deets here (ETA:  I have the link in now – sorry for the delay) and upload your photo here with keyword EPBE2008by 4pm Pacific on Sunday January 20th.  Joy and Daisy will be drawing a winner from all participants of my challenge and you can enter as many times as you like – each project pair will count as one entry.  Of course you are also welcome to upload your project to your blog or SCS gallery and we’d love for you to help spread the word and invite your friends to play along as well.  In order to be entered into the drawing you must upload to the eP gallery (you have to be logged in – ask me how I know – D’oh!) and you must post a message in the eP Forum on the thread I linked above.  Winner will be announced on that thread.   Taylor’s challenge is also open through Sunday afternoon and there will be a separate winner drawn for that as well.

Also don’t forget that eP is sending a party favor of Primas out with every order placed this weekend.  And also this weekend lots of papers are on sale – here’s the info from the newsletter
