I was thrilled when Poppystamps Design Team member, Kim Singdahlsen, invited me to be her Guest for the January Poppy Challenge PSC#88: Happy Birthday!

You need to use at least one Poppystamps image on your entry to the challenge. Cards, page layouts, tags, mixed media and home decor projects are all welcome!

I am always adding to my collection of Poppystamps dies and stamps and used a mix of old and new that is perfect for a masculine birthday card.

I picked up the Tall Curve Background die a while ago and have been adding Tall Curve Border dies to my collection regularly ever since. The Art Deco Curve Border is my most recent addition and is cut from gold paper and adhered to navy background panels.

An Oval Fold Frame is cut from another piece of navy cardstock. This panel provides a guide for the Deco Birthday Greeting sentiment to be selectively stamped directly on the white card base. The navy portion is inked and stamped first and then the gold portion heat embossed with some of the gold overlapping the navy.

After the sentiment is stamped, the oval frame is adhered to the card base and the gold panels adhered to the oval frame.

I hope you play along with the PSC #88: Happy Birthday. A randomly chosen winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to shop for more Poppystamps stamps and dies!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Wonderful, and definitely masculine but would work for feminine as well!

  2. Gorgeous! And I love how you added the navy and gold in the sentiment to mirror how you did the dies. Thank you for being our guest - you card is perfect!!


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
