Happy Birfday!

Like most stampers, I do not ever have a birfday card on hand when it is someone's birfday. Like this little panda, for example. I don't have a card for him.

Photo courtesy The Telegraph. And my mother.

Or my friend Sam. Whose actual birfday it is. And who is not a panda.

What I DID have, is this insanely adorable little birfday stamp from PaperWorks Co. It has been making me happy sitting in its package on my desk for weeks, and voila - I now have both a means and a motive for a birfday card. The packaging for this little stamp has the image all beautifully colored in, and I mostly copied the color scheme from that cute image. Actually, the packaging of these stamps is so darn cute I had to email the owner about it. They put as much design talent into it as goes into the stamp, which I thought was super cool.

I colored it with Copics and used my framed scalloped oval die to make the shape and the border. The border is October Afternoon's Seaside collection. The first 200 people in their booth got an 8 x 8 package of this at CHA and I screamed right at them I was so excited.
I'm hoarding it now. :)

The background is a Tim Holtz embossing folder (I think.. Why aren't those things labeled?) on Crumb Cake cardstock.

So happy birfday panda, Sam and whoever else has a birfday today! I hope you get a large colorful cake made of ice and dyed vegetables that you can eat in your birfday suit!

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :) Want to see my other blog?


  1. Cute, Lydia. Yes, that looks like one of Tim's. I use Sharpie Markers to write the name on my embossing folders and store them in a box alphabetically.

  2. Love the cute card! How fun. glad to have you back from CHA and bloging on a regular basis.

    Missed you!

  3. Cute card. I'm sure Sam will enjoy the card.
    I too wish the folders, etc were labeled at the factory. Going to follow Melody's suggestion this afternoon.

  4. That adorable panda is named Su Lin. She just celebrated her 5th birthday at the San Diego Zoo. Her little sister turned 3 and her little brother turned 1 the same week. Su Lin will be sent to China in a few months as is required by China of all the pandas born in the U.S. per the terms of the loan agreement between China and the U.S. zoos. Those of us in San Diego will miss her.
