I love love love Jersey Shore DP from Stampin' Up. My order came in Friday and I couldn't wait to bust into this paper. Normally I don't get too excited about pattern paper. I am kinda pattern paper challenged. But for some reason I couldn't resist with this paper. I love it. As you can see I also got my sale-a-bration sets. I got two so far. Birthday Whimsy and Lots of Thoughts. I made like 8 cards this weekend and 7 out of 8 of them were with the Birthday Whimsy set. I added stickles on the cake to add some sparkle. For the greeting I inked up all but the last two lines of the stamp with the brilliant blue marker. The whole image wouldn't fit in the circle.
All three cards today can be used for either a boy or girl. That's what I think I like best about the paper. It is not gender spacific. For this one I also added stickles to the cake. I didnt' know what to do with the top of the card so I punched a couple word windows and added brads and glued them on. I think it works great. I didn't wrap them around the card either. I just cut the ends off even with the end of the card.
I think this one is my favorite of the three. I am going to do this one in my April class as a masculine birthday card. I love how the orange brads look on the cake. I didn't add a greeting yet. I was looking for the right font then I got distracted so I just left it off for now. If I haven't sold you on the Jersey Shore paper yet, stay tuned..... I have a bunch more cards to show you.
