Happy Birthday~Easy DIY Card~ Challenge Link is Open!

Hey There wonderful Muse Fans!

Happy Friday and thanks so much for coming by today!

It's Kim today and I have a quick and easy Birthday card idea to share and want to remind you that today the Creative Challenge link is open! The rules are HERE and the link is below. It'll be added to the sidebar ASAP as well. Basically come on back and link up your NEW Birthday card or project using rubber or clear stamps, which need to be the STAR of the show! The stamps don't have to be ours but we'd love it if they were. The link is open until the 5th of February, Midnight Pacific time. Come back on February 9th when we announce the winner!

Here's my easy peasy DIY card I made using some papers I already had in my box o' backgrounds! I love making backgrounds and cannot stand to toss scraps and... is anyone in agreements with me? I love to keep them and it takes awhile sometimes before I can bring myself to use them!

That's one stash!


I looked through my box and pulled out some pieces that I liked today.



Those choices help set the colors for the card. To add interest and texture I tore strips from the paper. This is just like Kelly Parker did in here post HERE Paper strips are so amazing and fun to layer up!


Pick a stamp and proceed to stamp all over one of the torn paper strips. Remember is does not have to be perfectly spaced or stamped. Casual is just fine. I picked our Daisy stamp. You might recognize it from my last project, HERE


Place the stamped torn paper strip wherever you like, to me if felt most comfortable on the left side. Then tear the bottom and top to be even to the edges of the base.


I used a small photobooth style stamp and stamped on another scrap of book page. Most of my stamps are not mounted. I just use double stick tape on the block, it stamps great! 


Add some more small stamping to the photobooth stamp and use the same stamp on the background, randomly. I used this flower stamp in purple for a bright touch.


I stamped Happy Birthday on another book page scrap a couple of times then picked the one I liked the best. I used the Happy Birthday from Pam's Llama plate, HERE


I used thin tape runner pieces to attach everything once I felt good about the layout.


I decided to add a little sparkle with some washi and rhinestones.


I hope you like it and that you feel inspired to play with your stamps and paper stash! Come back and share what you've made we'd love to see it!


Have an amazing day!
