This Birthday Piggy and the Celebrate Everything DSP

It is time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  National Cake Day is the festivity we are featuring on the Festive Friday Challenge. What is the Festive Friday Challenge?  The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List.  What is an Inspo List?  Every challenge has an Inspo list  aka as an inspiration list, that has 10 items on it and those 10 items were inspired by a particular holiday, celebration or festivity.  You need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project.  You do not have to incorporate the festivity into your challenge but if you want to, you can.  Here is a link to more information about how to participate in the challenge.


As I mentioned before we are in house hunting mode which means I have just a few stamp sets with me in our short term rental.  Can you believe that not a single one had a cupcake, sprinkles or candle!  Fortunately we were going to our storage unit and I was able to rummage through my box of stamps and pulled out the This Birthday Piggy stamp set and yes, it has a candle! 


From the Inspo List I used, birthday sentiment, candle and patterned paper.  The sentiment is from the This Birthday Piggy stamp set and it is stamped on a banner from the All That dies.  Can you see the itty bitty heart?  This little heart is from the oval hearts frame surrounding the piggy image.  The oval hearts frame, the Granny Apple Green oval frame and the Basic White oval (the birthday piggy) were all die cut using the Framed Florets dies.  Love how they coordinate and love the little hearts.  The Framed Florets dies are available to purchase now and will be officially debuting January in the 2023 mini catalog.  There are more coordinating items including the Framed Florets stamp set  (purchase the bundle and save 10% 162407), the Framed & Festive stamp set (available while supplies last), Fitting Florets DSP (available while supplies last), and the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls (available while supplies last)

The image was colored using a variety of Stampin' Blends.  The colors used-Polished Pink, Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight.  The bright and cheery striped patterned paper is from the Celebrate Everything DSP.  The Celebrate Everything DSP is a Stampin' Reward choice found in the 2022 July-December Mini Catalog.
