#696 – Seize the Birthday – Monochromatic

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! The challenge is to create a project related to ‘Birthday’ with or without the ‘Topping’. Its the last challenge for this year, since we will be going on a break until the new year after this. And the topping this time is, you guessed it right, Monochromatic!

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

And here’s the monochromatic card I made –

Birthday Wishes

I used Penny Black Floral Tapestry stamp. God knows how long I’ve had this in my stash, and I’ve never used it! I think I had bought it to make a birthday card for my Ma, but never used it… I don’t even remember what I ended up making then, but it definitely didn’t use this stamp. So I am glad I got to make a birthday card with it – so the original purpose has been served!! 😀

So, anyway, I used Abandoned Coral distress oxide ink to stamp the image on a simple white card case. I then used Winnie & Walter In A Word: Birthday Tiles along with Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Bases dies to make the sentiment – the two dies fit so perfectly together! The stamped part of the sentiment comes from Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs. I added a few drops of gold and silver Nuvo drops for something extra. 🙂

Hop over to the Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from our genius DT and also our Surprise Party Guest, the very talented Becca Cruger! And don’t forget to play along!!

Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂

  1. Isn’t it funny how long we can hang onto a stamp without ever getting it inky! This card is gorgeous! Love the tilted sentiments and so glad you finally gave it some love! Have a wonderful day!

  2. What a beautiful background, looks too perfect to be stamped! Glad you had an opportunity to give an old stamp some love 🙂

  3. We all certainly have stamps that we think we need and then don’t use. I think it should be a challenge to use unused stamps first. Lol Your card is certainly gorgeous and glad that you finally used it to make this card.
