April Nacho Average Blog Hop-Happy Birthday Build a Birthday

Welcome to the Nacho Average Design Team's blog hop for April.  This month, we are celebrating birthdays!

For my projects, I am featuring the stamp set Build a Birthday.


For my first project, I created a Cascading Card using Build a Birthday for the candles and Party with Cake for the greeting.  It also features It's My Party Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape.

The Cascading Card technique is fairly simple to do.  (Click HERE for directions).  The key is to measure, cut and score as accurately as possible.

I created the background for my second project using Color Me Irresistible Designer Series Paper.  I simply sponged on Black Archival ink making the design on the DSP pop.  I stamped the candles and flames on scrap pieces of Whisper White card stock and cut out using a pair of scissors.  They were then popped up on the background using Dimensionals.

 For my third project, I created a birthday cake using It's My Party Washi Tape.  I stamped the cake pedestal from Build a Birthday using Black Archival ink, then added the Washi Tape. 

Easy, Easy.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to continue on through the Hop and see the beautiful creations of our talented Design Team!
