Welcome back to day two of the January release at Papertrey Ink. Today, we are introducing you to Birthday Tag Kit + Birthday Background & Birthday Celebration stamps + Love to Layer: Decorative Bracket dies + Iconic Birthday stamps and dies + Birthday Celebration dies. For me, birthdays are the biggest category of cards that I create for so, these new stamps and dies are a welcomed variety!
This background stamp is a great way to create a quick card! I stamped it with a pigment black ink then added clear embossing powder. You can add the color blending before or after the stamping/embossing step (I did it before).
The scalloped edge die and the dry embossed strip are so versatile to use with many card designs.

INK: Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin, Kitsch Flamingo, Peacock Feathers distress inks; Versafine Clair Nocturne
PAPER: Bristol Smooth Surface, White, True Black

Celebrating a birthday? How about some cute packaging to present a gift?! I started with the Scallop Top Gift Box die and layered up some patterned squares with some sweet little iconic birthday images. To close the box, I used aqua and white seam binding with some polka dotted tulle ribbon. I'm so sad that I can't find a source for more tulle ribbon as my supply is quickly dwindling.

PAPER: Sugar Shoppe (Doodlebug Design patterned 6x6 pad); Lovely Lady, White

That's it for today. Come back tomorrow and we will show you some "home" themed stamps and a gorgeous new bloom for the Into the Blooms series! ~Wanda
