Welcome to the Stampin’ Addicts Birthday Blog Hop! Can you believe this fabulous stamping community is one year old this weekend? As part of the celebration, we will be featuring a wide variety of birthday themed projects.
You may have come from Trina’s blog and her fabulous birthday gift ensemble (love those charms!) or you may be starting here. Either way the hop goes in a circle and you can start in either direction!
My daughter Eve is in first grade, and believe it or not she has THREE birthday celebrations this weekend to attend. Because of this, my projects are birthday cards for young girls — preschool to second grade. Interestingly, when I finished them I realized that every single one uses the color Melon Mambo! It’s such a great, festive, young girl birthday color!
This first card is my favorite! It is an easel card and uses Dazzling Diamonds glitter to make it so fun and sparkly! I’m not sure if you can tell, but they are covering the mane, wings, and tail.
Stamps: Pony Party
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Taken with Teal
Paper: Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Taken with Teal, Whisper White
Other: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Modern Label Punch, Movers & Shapers Punch Windows Die, Big Shot, Stampin’ Dimensionals
My second card is my husband’s favorite of the bunch. The great shape at the top is made by running the Top Note Die through the Big Shot once, then turning your paper 90 degrees and running it through again. The dress on the paper is paper pieced.

Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pad

My final card for today works not only for a young girl, but one of any age, because really, who doesn’t like cupcakes?
