A little birthday Mojo

A little birthday Mojo published on No Comments on A little birthday Mojo

Having my company in town last week was so fun but of course that meant that stamping just didn’t happen.  I guess that is part of summer…and the visits are one of the best parts of this time of year.  Today I needed to get right to work, though, because I need a card for a birthday party tomorrow.  Where else to turn on a Monday when you are looking for inspiration but Mojo Monday??!!  Their sketch number 151 is another great one. 

I have made a few other cards with the new Play Date DSP from Stampin’ Up but making birthday cards was my reason for getting it.  The first time I saw this paper, I envisioned playing with the numbers to highlight a specific birthday year.  The best part…it actually worked as I had it in my brain.  Usually, I have to move paper around and see it together to make it work so this was quite a happy thing for me!  As I am sure you can tell, the birthday boy is turning 7.  I used the single-tone Chocolate Chip number sheet for the focal image and then cut the number 7 square out of the multi-colored number sheet.  The DSP really does all the work here.  I used the words from my Teeny Tiny Wishes set, stamped it on the Tempting Turquoise sheet and punched it out with the Large Word Window punch.  I added the Modern Label underneath the Word Window and punched out another to split in half as the “border” beneath the Turquoise panel.  I kind of like how that turned out and that it gives a continuity.  It seemed like something was missing so I added my new favorite accessory…well, my second favorite because SU ribbon is like an addiction for me…the new Designer Buttons.  Done, done, and done…love it when that happens! 

The best part about this paper is that the number sequences guarantee that I can make other variations of this card for other birthdays.  While I know that most of this will be lost on a 7 year old boy, his mother is one of my club members who will surely appreciate it!  I hope you find this card as fun as I do.  Have a great week!
