Stampin' For All Design Team Birthday Challenge Projects

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the projects that were made for the Stampin' For All Facebook Group Design Team Challenge

I set the challenge last Monday an all week people have been making birthday Cards and sharing their inspiration on the group page. Today I am sharing them here with you :-) 


Stampin' Up! Bloom By Bloom Nigezza Creates


As always I made some cards to help with inspiration. I used the mats I have made using the baby wipe technique.

Then I stepped the card up a bit :-)

Time for the closeups of the groups cards :-) 


This first card was made by Susan Hardy. It looks like a shaker card. Fabulous for a dinosaur fan, such fun :-)


Susan also made this second card as well. I really love how the main card image has been cut up and stuck down with gaps between the sections. This is really effective.


Here is Susan's third card. I love monochrome, it is so classy.


This card was made by my lovely big sister, Sylvia Hamilton. I am as ever delighted that she started card making just over a year ago and seems to make more than me now! Love this card especially the bubbles.


This lovely layered Horsey card was made by Jean Schultz. The attention to detail in the card is amazing. Love all the stitched layers on the front and then stamping on the inside and the envelope makes it even more special.


This bright cheery card was made by Erika Rodriguez. I love the rainbow background and the way the letters have been coloured to match and the way the envelope has been decorated with some complimentary paper.


This clever rugby shirt card was made by Bhavana Petal. The colours match the team the recipient plays for. I bet he loves it. 


This jolly froggy card was made by Carol Ann Pendleton. I love how the frog is perched on top of the sentiment. Carol also suggested that the frog could be holding balloons which I think is a fabulous idea.



I always love to see purple cards and when they are purple butterflies that is double love! This gorgeous card was made by Karen Jane Tilley. 


This lovely card was made by Helen Chandler. I love foliage cards and I love how the lard die cut sentiment is intertwined with the die cut leaves. 


This card made it just in time to be included in this blog post. Elaine Spencer made this lovely card that perfectly colour coordinates. I do like it when that happens.


Michaela Pickering made this lovely card, perfect for a child's birthday. I do love these cup cakes and love how it has been layered up, it really makes the topper pop.


This is Michaela's second card, I love how this paper has been used for a froggy pond. It is really effective.


I added another card myself as I was doing this for a sketch challenge and thought it fitted the theme.


These cards were made by Debbie Harper. The were made for er grandson and show his 3 favourite things, brownies, cars and the X Box. Fabulous cards that I am sure he will love. 



I would like to thank everyone for joining in and sharing such great inspiration. If you like challenges then pop over and join the group there are 2 challenges set every week :-) 


I will be back tomorrow, until then ...

Happy Crafting!

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well. You may remember a few weeks ago I tried the baby wipe technique for the first time and created lots of card backgrounds. Well todays project uses one of those backgrounds. This is the one that I wiped the ink filled baby wipe across the card stock in a curve and created a sort of rainbow.

2017-2019 In Colours retire at the end of May get them before they run out

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am just reminding that pretty soon the current 2017-2019 in colours will be retiring. From the moment the new In Colours for 2019 - 2021 are announced at On Stage in April they start to sell out fast. So if you need the ink refills, card stock, stampin' write markers or ink pads then I would suggest you get them sooner rather than later.


Stampin' Up! In Colours 2017-2019 Nigezza Creates


Get them now in Sale-A-Bration 

If you stock up now then you can also get FREE Sale-A-Bration items as well.  You know it makes sense. I have just been stocking up and have bagged myself some Free items from the new release of Sale-A-Bation.

Why not shop for the items now!

Product List






I hope you found this useful as I would hate you to miss out of these products. I will be back tomorrow, until then ...

Happy Crafting!
