I am guest designing again for Ink to Paper/Papertrey Ink. I have a few projects to share showcasing products from the January and February 2020 Releases.  

For my first card, I started with a top folding Select White card stock base. I used a piece of the Simple Impressions Celebration pattern paper.  I die cut a frame using Shape Shifters: Circle #1 die. I sponged some distressed oxide tumble glass in the center and along one edge.  

Next, I die cut all the pieces from Sweet Celebration Die.  I also used To Die For Sentiments: Birthday Dies for the little loopy vine tendrils.  I used Select White card stock.  

I used sponge daubers and detail blending tools to color and accent the leaves, strawberries, and flowers. I used Pure Poppy InkBerry Sorbet InkBright Buttercup InkGreen Parakeet ink, and Ripe Avocado ink.  I accented the strawberries with a white gel pen.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

For my second card I started with a harvest gold top folding card base.  I used a piece of Confetti Toss pattern paper.  I die cut the cupcake elements from Select White card stock and used sponge daubers and detail blending tools to color the elements.  I used Raspberry Fizz ink,Hibiscus Burst Ink, Sweet Blush Ink, Lemon Tart ink, Harvest Gold ink, and Summer Sunrise ink.  I used the Sweet Celebration Die for the white flowers.  I used Border Bling: Lots of Dots die for the circles I added to the centers of the flowers using aqua mist card stock.  

I sponged a piece of white card stock with Raspberry Fizz ink, Hibiscus Burst Ink, Sweet Blush Ink going from darker at the bottom to lightest at the top just like the cupcake.  I die cut the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment using To Die For Sentiments: Birthday Dies.  I finished this card with a few clear sequins.

For my third card, I started with Select White card stock.  I die cut two of the leaves from the Sweet Celebration Die to use as a stencil to create the background.   I used Simply Chartreuse inkGreen Parakeet Ink, Ripe Avocado ink, and Prairie Grass inks and sponge daubers to color my background.  I added a few splatters using some espresso ink, green ink, and gold ink.  I added the stenciled panel to a side folding ripe avocado base.  

Next, I die cut the frame using true black card stock and the Border Bling:  Skinny Dotted Frame Die twice and glued it to the top to frame the card.  I die cut the "Happy Birthday" using To Die For Sentiments: Birthday Dies with true black card stock.
