Photopolymer Happy Birthday!

Hello, stampers. I received my Stampin' UP! order last night! Yippee! So, this morning while it rained, I played with some of my new goodies.  Four of them to be a matter of fact.  To get some inspirational help, I followed the color challenge Just Add Ink #219.   Here's the challenge:

And here's my card: 
 I used two new photopolymer stamp sets called: Age Awareness and Borderettes. These are the very first photopolymer stamps I have bought from SU. The other two new SU goodies I used are the Tiny Triangles embossing folder and Smokey Slate 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. Photopolymer stamp sets are so cool because you do NOT have to use a stampa-ma-jig to line up images!
I added the row of triangles from the Borderettes stamp set above and below the "happy birthday" phrase without using my stampa-ma-jig.  How cool is that?   Colors are: Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Smokey  Slate.
I also colored around the "happy birthday" phrase using the lightest color of Blendabilities from the Daffodil Delight family.  And then to finish off my card and to give it some sparkle, I added some Dazzling Details.  Oh so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping!


  1. Wow, what a lot of fun you've had with your new 'toys', Annette! I love the triangular elements, and the stars - and especially like the way you've added colour around the sentiment. Very cool birthday card! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!

    Great card - I am looking forward to trying out the photopolymer stamps too - and I love the idea of lining everything up with no SAMG. I love how you have positioned you little triangles from the Borderettes stamp set and I think the Age Awareness set is on my list now too. Chantell JAI

  3. This is a fun birthday card and what a way to use some new stamps! I love the little triangle boarderettes you've used. A fab entry at Just Add Ink this week.
