Welcome to another Papertrey Ink group countdown post! We were each assigned a different image from the brand new 2012 Birthday Tags stamp set, and my image is this cute round polkadot tag with a star and celebrate banner on it. My first project is a group of birthday invitations...
I made a bunch of them, as they were so easy and quick to make. I cut the Card Base-ics #2 die, then trimmed some Aqua Mist patterned paper to slide into the tabs on the front.

I used a new stamp called By Invitation to stamp the party details.I stamped the circle tag onto Aqua Mist Patterned Paper to put at the top.

Celebrate Party Invitations:
Stamps: 2012 Birthday Tags, By Invitation
Ink: True Black, Hawaiian Shores
Paper: Aqua Mist Pattern Pack, Simply Chartreuse Pattern Pack
Dies: Card Base-ics #2
Other: Hawaiian Shores ribbon, star punch by Fiskars.

Here is a gift tag using the Card Base-ics #2 die also and the round celebrate stamp from the 2012 Birthday Tags.

I used the same stamp here in Harvest Gold (yellow), Blueberry Sky (blue) and Canyon Clay (orange) inks. Added the "to/from" from the 2012 Birthday Tags stamp set. The little lollipop is taped onto the front.

To/From Celebrate Tag:
Stamps: 2012 Birthday Tags
Ink: Harvest Gold, Blueberry Sky, Canyon Clay
Paper: Dark Chocolate Pattern Pack, white cardstock
Dies: Card Base-ics #2
Other: Canyon Clay ribbon.

Last is a birthday card. I used the round Celebrate stamp once again and turned it into an award ribbon. I die cut some felt stars for the ribbon tails from a new border die called Super Stars Borders (which you'll see more of tomorrow)! The little tag die cut from kraft cardstock with the loop at the top is new and is called Tag Sale #6.

Celebrate Today card:
Stamps: 2012 Birthday Tags
Ink: Harvest Gold, Dark Chocolate
Paper: Kraft, Harvest Gold, and Blueberry Sky cardstock, Dark Chocolate Pattern Pack
Dies: Tag Sale #6, circle punch, Super Stars Borders
Other: Basic Grey brads, PTI felt in Aqua Mist, Canyon Clay ribbon.
