Birthday Somethings and a Swap

Happy Friday Everyone!


We've got a great new challenge for you today on STAMP SOMETHING and a special treat too. We've given our design team the week off so we have a group of guest designers to give you some inspiration! Be sure to check out their fabulous projects! We'd like to also give them a huge thanks for helping us out this week and for all their hard work!

The challenge this week is another easy one, totally open to interpretation too. Just make a project that has the theme of Birthdays! Show us what you can do and you'll be entered into our blog candy drawing for a chance to win a gift certificate from the Coconut Scrap Shop! Get out those stamps and bring on the birthday somethings!

This is the card I made for a swap I'm participating in, which is being hosted by Samantha, the West Coast Stamper. It's a masculine birthday swap. I thought I'd share it with you today seeing as it fits the STAMP SOMETHING challenge too.

My card is pretty simple. I used the colors Baja Breeze and Night of Navy. The squares were run through the Cuttle Bug and embossed with the circles embossing folder. I then used my square punch to get the perfect square shape. The sentiment is from All Holidays, a Stampin' Up! set. The final touches were ribbon and silver brads.

Thanks for looking! Samantha, these are on their way to you! I hope you'll take some time to stamp something with us today, don't forget to check out our guest designers this week too!

Have a great weekend, happy stamping!! :)
