Happy birthday to my nieces

January is a busy birthday and anniversary month in our family! Two of my nieces have birthdays and both of my sisters have wedding anniversaries. And my own wedding anniversary is in January too!

My oldest niece turned 13 last week and I used a great Power Poppy stamp set called Well Played and a CardMap from Page Maps from January to make this card for her:

The patterned paper is from a Basic Grey (may they rest in peace) B Side 6x6 paper pad. My Copic colouring is very basic!

Another niece turned 10 just a few days after her sister and I made her a rainbow layer cake themed card. Again, my Copic colouring is very basic. I used the Party Time stamp set by Power Poppy and another CardMap from Page Maps. These patterned papers are also from Basic Grey B Side. 

The stitched circle dies I used on both cards are from Cottage Cutz.

I'm entering both these cards into the Power and Spark Challenge for January 2018!


  1. Hi Gab, not sure if your going to see this....You left a comment on my card on the Scrapbook Challenge. So glad you liked the card. You were asking if I turned the card as I stamped?? I didn't actually but can totally see how you get that idea. I used the middle stamp image because I knew I could space out each layer of stamps around it easily (if that makes sense....). But you could totally do that in a MISTI, set up the stamps in one corner and turn your card each time. Would probably be much easier!!! Hope that answers your question and you find this comment!

    1. Thanks Shona ... I loved your card so much - I made my own version but I don't like it as much as I like yours!!!
