tiny treats: birthday & more simple sentiments and fillable frames #12

Welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink January release countdown! Today the whole design team is sharing birthday themed projects with the new Tiny Treats: Birthday set. The whole Tiny Treats series a group of stamps that is one of my favorites in the Papertrey collection. I look forward to each set that Nichole designs! I snuck some more peeks of my 2 new sets, Simple Sentiments and Fillable Frames #12, into my project today as well!

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on January 15th at Papertrey Ink.


With Tiny Treats: Birthday it is so easy to put together a whole birthday theme by choosing one of the sweet little images, a color theme, and go from there. For my birthday project, I choose the balloon image and used the colors Melon Berry, Spring Rain, and Spring Moss. This theme could be for a boy or girl and you can easily change up the colors for another look. You can even add the balloons in to a totally different theme and they work because what says birthday besides balloons?

My birthday ensemble includes an invitation, favor cup with a fun little flag, and a balloon on a stick favor that includes the party goers name on a tag.


The frame image/die cut from Fillable Frames #12 works just right layered onto the new Mat Stack 5 die cut stamped with the coordinating image from Tiny Treats: Birthday. I used a glue pen to add glitter to the scallop circle shape and the "you're invited" sentiment from Simple Sentiments fits perfectly on the Double Ended Banner die - I trimmed the right end of the banner die cut to the right card front edge after it was attached.


I put the Banner Builder Collection dies to work to make the little flag for the favor cup and the banner border around the top edge of the cup.


I repeated the main image on the invitation card front to create the tag that I attached to the balloon-on-a-stick. I found the balloon sticks at my local craft store in the party section. I personalized the tag with the Simple Alphabet set. What child at a birthday party wouldn't want a balloon on a stick adorned with their own name tag and lots of pretty ribbons?


All of the balloon images are colored with Copic markers and then glitter was added with a glue pen.
