IHP Birthday Bash ~ Day 5 Challenge!

Happy Birthday i{heart}papers!
Today, along with Megan/Chris Veneruso and my friend Debbie Fisher, I am one of the hosts for the Day 5 Challenge. Sooooo.... what is the challenge for today? Well, another very important part of the party is the food you prepare! Therefore, the challenge for you today is to make a card, scrapbook page, 3-D item, etc. using stamps or papers that feature food and/or drinks! Remember, everything this week has to do with birthday be sure your creation is birthday related!

Today's Inspiration ~ Now my creations today happen to be actual food, but don't feel like you need to do that. I love putting parties together so I decided to make some yummy cupcake toppers and treat bags perfect for a little girl's birthday party.

Project Details ~ For the cupcake toppers, I simply cut out circles using my Nestabilities from this adorable strawberry pattern paper by Best Creation called Strawberry Kisses. I layered the circles on a scallop circle and attached them to some lollypop sticks. Then I finished them off with a little bit of bright green silk ribbon by May Arts and cut the ends with pinking sheers.

Treat bags ~ I took the fantastic new lable die from the Ribbon Tag Trio #2 by Nestabilities for the front of the bag. I also cut out an oval shape to layer on top and then hand cut some strawberries from the Strawberry Kiss pattern paper. I finished off the tag with some coordinating ribbon & used my long rectangle scallop Nestabilities to trim the top of the treat bag.

Challenge Details ~
Before you begin, take a few minutes to review the challenge guidelines! You’ll want to follow these rules to maximize your points and qualify for the opportunity to WIN the prize for today’s challenge and the Grand Prize, all announced on the last day of our festivities!

To qualify for the prize of the day, all you have to do is upload your challenge card/project to Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) and/or Paper Craft Planet (PCP) with the appropriate tag so we can find it. Today’s challenge tag is IHPBB5. The daily challenge winners will be randomly selected at the end of the week.

To qualify for the Grand Prize of being IHP Guest Designer for the month of November, here’s how it will work: Every challenge card/project you enter will earn you points (see below), and one with the most accumulated for the week the Grand Prize winner. So the more challenges you enter, more points you earn — and the better your chances of winning the Grand Prize (and the bigger the value of your Guest Designer box will be)!

You will have until October 25th to post your work, and you can enter as many challenges as you like, but you CANNOT combine challenges in one project. All winners, including the Grand Prize winner, will be announced at the Birthday Bash on October 26th.
