more birthdays by the numbers and tag-its #10

I am almost done catching up with my Papertrey Ink November release projects. Today I have some more cards to share using my Birthdays by the Numbers and Tag-its #10 sets.


I am loving this color combination of Sweet Blush, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, kraft, and a touch of Scarlett Jewel. The cupcake is sitting inside the round frame from Tag-its #10 and for the sentiment, I combined the "birthday" from Tag-its #10 and the "wishes" from Birthday by the Numbers.


The kraft paper piece is stamped with Mega Mehndi Medallion, tied with a bit of Sweet Blush stitched ribbon, and finished off with a sweet little tag using Tiny Tags II. I am thinking that this card layout switched our with several color combinations, would fill my basket of much needed birthday cards. For a more masculine version, I could swap out the flower tag with a more basic shape or star tag.


Hana has lots of friends that will be having 9th birthday parties in the next several months and so I am all set for the next one that comes up! This card uses a By the Numbers die on the circle frame from the By the Numbers set. I added a strip of Bitty Dot patterned paper in Raspberry Fizz that I die cut the one edge with the Pinking Shears border die.


I stamped the cupcake bottom in Fresh Snow ink and then added the color to the polka dots with a Copic marker.


Here's a sweet simple birthday card I made with my Tag-its #10 set. I stamped my own balloon patterned paper with a little selective inking.


One of my favorite images from Tag-its #10 is the little "happy" pennant border. I colored in the pennants with a Copic marker and then used a glue pen to add some glitter.


Here is one last card set made with the By the Numbers set. For one card, I used the cupcake as the focal point on the card, but for the other I stamped a whole background paper piece with the cupcakes. I personalized the one card with the recipients age and the set includes numbers so you can customize your card agewise however you want!


I have one more post to share with you after this with the remainder of my November release projects and I will share that with you after the senior design team challenge post tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!
