Birthday Blueprint card set

I decided to put together a card gift box using Tim Holtz Birthday Blueprint stamps. I started off with the party hat, which I created for a challenge here. I used a few of the figures I coloured during my holiday to create the cupcake and present cards. And finally I used paper piecing for the balloon card. 

I stamped the cupcake and present onto watercolour paper using Stazon black ink. I coloured the present using Tim Holtz markers in Mowed Lawn and Seedless Preserves and an aqua painter to create a watercolour look. I coloured the cupcake using Stampin' Up markers in Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride and Tim Holtz distress marker in Peacock Feathers and Iced Spruce and a blender pen. I stamped the sentiments from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. The DSP is from Papermania Happy Birthday to you. I stamped in black onto the background papers and attached the coloured and fussy cut images using dimensionals. 

I stamped the balloon in black onto Stampin' Up Summer Smooches DSP and fussy cut the balloon. I stamped the balloon again onto white cardstock and attached teh balloon using dimensionals. The sentiments are from the same Sentiment Sampler set as above. The description for the chalkboard card is here.

For the box I used the same measurements as I used previously here. I stamped each of the birthday stamps on the top of the box and finished everything with a purple cardstock wrap and a bow I made from purple ribbon from my stash. I also stamped to make matching envelopes.

Oh and if you think that it looked like there is a snake in the background of the cards, that's just because there is a snake in the background of the cards. Our little girlie was out stretching her... herself while I was taking the pictures. Isn't she cute!
