Seize the Birthday Challenge #1-Feminine Birthday Sketch


Welcome to Seize the Birthday! This is our first challenge! We are working on creating both masculine and feminine birthday cards this year! As this is the first sketch of the month, please use our sketch and create a girly birthday card. 



This week we are excited to be sponsored by Whimsy and Stars Studio!!! 
This week's winner will receive two digital stamps from Whimsy and Stars Studio!


Whimsy and Stars Studio is a cheery art studio, home of illustrator Mabelle Ramirez Ortiz. I discovered stamping back in 1996 while working on a children’s book illustration project and I totally fell in love with stamping. In 1998 I began licensing my rubber stamp designs and in 2010 I expanded my designs into digital stamps. Now I have a collection of limited edition rubber stamps sets directly from my studio along with digis. I also have a collection of clear stamps (photopolymer resin) available from The Craft's Meow.


Be sure to visit Mabelle's online store to see her sweet designs! I just love them!

To learn more about our challenge guidelines, please click HERE.

The design team has some wonderful inspiration for you using Mabelle's sweet digital stamps! A big welcome to Kim Singdahlsen as our Guest Designer this week!


Won't you join us and build your stash of birthday cards?!


Challenge Rules (to keep things fair):
1. You must use the sketch and make a BIRTHDAY card. (this week we are looking for a feminine birthday card)

2. Please add a direct link to your blog or to an online gallery.


3. Feel free to use other challenges or for a stamp release, it doesn't matter, as long as you add this challenge link and sketch design to your post.


4. Any offensive posts or cards that do not follow the guidelines will be removed out of courtesy to fellow bloggers and the design team.


5. As always, please have fun and make the sketch your own!



This linky will close at Noon on the Tuesday before the next Seize the Birthday Challenge.
