Star Birthday

August 20th, 2012

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend.  I managed to clean off my stamping table which always makes me want to stamp.  🙂  Here’s a birthday card I made for a great friend of ours.  He’s a graphic designer, so I figured he could handle some bold colors and patterns.  LOL!


This card features the new TE stamp set Doodle Notes plus the Notepaper A la Carte stamp and the Notepaper and Clipboard Taylored Die set.  I am so in love with this clipboard die idea right now along with the Notepaper and Grid Paper A l a Cartes…I mean…MINIATURE OFFICE SUPPLIES!!! Love it!


I stamped the Notepaper image onto TE Choice White cs by inking it up with Pool Party ink and then using a Riding Hood Red SU marker direct to rubber to color the line down the side of the stamp.  Then I die cut it.  I stamped the Doodle images in Memento black ink and colored with Copics.  Of course you have to be mindful that the Pool Party ink will smear.  I covered the star with yellow stickles.  The back piece of the clipboard is simply a rectangle of Espresso cardstock with the corners rounded.  I shaped the clippy die cut by wrapping it around a pencil and then popped it up on a foam dot.  Row of stars was created with the TE Reach for the Stars Border Die. Finishing touches include Bronze Viva Pearl Pen, orange Kaisercraft rhinestones, and brown Doodle Twine.  Patterned paper is Echo Park.

I didn’t take a photo of the inside as I was rushing out the door to church with this card in hand.  Inside it says “Birthday Wishes” and there is another diecut star border.

It’s funny, when the Doodle Notes set was in development (concept by Jen Shults, illustrated by Nancy Mckinney) we talked about it being primarily for creating notes for kids’ lunchboxes. Sounded cute, but I assumed I wouldn’t  have much use for it.  However, I LOVE this set.  It’s SO FUN and really super versatile.  I just love it when that happens!


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

    I know what you mean about wanting to stamp after you clean off your table. Trouble is, I usually run out of time after a good cleaning. Love the card and how you put together all the elements. Ideal for your graphic arts friend!
