OSAT Bring on the Birthdays Blog Hop

Phew! Happy Thursday to all of you! My kids are on a snow day because of the major blizzard that hit Colorado... We were lucky in that they were able to go to school for half the day yesterday just to be sent home early and have a snow day today... which also means spring break starts early!! 

This month with the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop we are hopping with the theme Bring on The Birthdays! There are quite a few of us with March birthdays on this hop. I say us because I am one! I turn 40 on the 21st! I know that it is just a number but I am mostly excited about my mom flying in to see me! Enough about that, let me show you what I have created for this Birthday Bash!!

I can't get enough of our How Sweet It Is suite in our Occasions catalog. In this suite you can find the Sweetest Thing Bundle, How Sweet Is DSP and the Sweet Pins & Tags. Of course there are a few more items in this suite but I couldn't name the all! My card starts with a fabulous base of Granny Apple Green and bright mat of Melon Mambo, I just can't get enough of these bright and cheerful colors. I have taken a piece of Whisper White and stamped Smoky Slate candies scattered across the bottom. My Pool Party Stampin' Blends were perfect for a glass like candy jar. I cut a WHOLE BUNCH of candies out of card stock colors that coordinate with the Designer Series Paper Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, but I went a bit rogue and used Daffodil Delight instead of Pineapple Punch. They are quite a few of the little candy dies, so I just cut all of them out of each color so that I had extras to use later... I placed them at the bottom of the jar as though they spilled out. To finish this card off I added a 1" strip of DSP across the top. This created a perfect place for a Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape stamped sentiment banner. 

  To coordinate with my card I have used the Window Box Thinlit Dies with Coastal Cabana card stock. I even used the candle die in this set on two of the "squares" on the out side of the box. To give this box a bit more of a party punch I have added stitched squares using the Stitched Shape Framelits using the How Sweet it is DSP. Remember those extra candies? I used a few on the box! On the top of the box I have used a 2 1/4" Granny Apple Green punched circle and layered a Pearlized Doily with a Starburst Punch of the DSP. A nice bow of Polka Dot Tulle was perfect for this party favor. Another super fabulous feature about this bundle is that the dies in the Sweetest Thing Bundle actually cut pieces of the DSP. So I die cut a cute little jar to layer on to my Sweet Tag that is pinned with the coordinating Melon Mambo Pin!
