Hi there! It’s STILL Papertrey release time (I have such a great time with these extended release periods!!) and today I have THREE projects for you using Initial Sentiments: Birthday, Ways to Say: Birthday, and Kay’s Critters: Cuddly Cat.
For my first card I decided to attempt a fun cutout around the giant “HB” sentiment for a unique design. I lined the interior with Limeade Ice cardstock for a color pop and used the circular images to add to the sentiment.
STAMPS: Initial Sentiments: Birthday
INK: Black, Smokey Shadow, Raspberry Fizz, Limeade Ice, Hawaiian Shores
PAPER: Stampers Select White, Limeade Ice
My second card is one of my favorites from this release. I used the “birthday” die from the “happy birthday” die set to create a sentiment window but left it open to show the Hibiscus Burst cardstock show from underneath. The floral Gran’s Garden accents are the perfect focal point to counter the sentiment on top.
FLORAL HAPPY BIRTHDAY

For Kay’s Critters dies I found myself increasingly obsessed with my kitty, Gypsy. So much so that I decided to create her a little toy to go along with the gift tag I made. Unfortunately the polka dots that are stamped on the tag in Soft Stone are too subtle for most of my images, but they add the perfect amount of faux texture to my simple kitty tag. I have quite a few friends who have kitties and I love buying them little treats and toys so I will definitely be making more of these. 🙂
I made the toy so it separates from the tag easily and can be played with right away! 🙂 I tested this one out with Gypsy and she’s a big fan. She also loves it when you dangle it from a stick hehe
