Accordion Album & Copic Birthday Card

I wanted to do some Copic colouring last night, and so stamped and coloured these images made by Purple Onion stamps. I always like how much you can fit on Karen Burniston's Sizzix Accordion Album - by adding on as many panels as you like. I also used the Frame & Label, Bracket die to cut the surrounding patterned paper, and white central panels. The cloud die is by Papertrey Ink.
 Papers were mainly from Crate Paper's Story Teller 6x6 pad (and I'm putting the card into Simon Says Stamp & Show's 'A little paper' challenge).
I used Distress ink round the edges of each section and outer frame, did paper piecing with the stamped images, and also made my own little flowers for the layered flower - to go along with Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge to use three different techniques.


  1. Oh my cuteness! I love this! Like, one of my favorite Helen projects ever! The stamps are colored perfectly and I love the layered way you did the banner, how it travels across two pages, the sweet little birdie holding the balloon, and that super cute bunny!

  2. I LOVE this card, I LOVE those stamps I have to get them!
    Thanks for sharing

  3. I recently discovered your blog and really enjoy it. Your creations are wonderful, very inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing them.

  4. Oh, this is flippin' adorable. ADORABLE. I'm such a fan of your work, and every time you post a creation with a Sizzix die it makes me want to run into my studio and play with mine. You are so inspiring!!
    Thanks for sharing your talents with us.
