A Superstar kind of birthday

I finally picked up the adorable Outlines Alphabet from Papertrey Ink. You know how it goes, a set catches your eye, but you keep putting off getting it. Well, I had to sit down almost right away and put something together with it.

Anyway, it's a pretty basic card. I arranged the letters on a grid block, stamped them, then coloured them in with Copics and Spica markers. I added in a greeting from It's a Jungle Out There (I really, really like that font the Happy Birthday is in). Next I added a mat and some punched out stamped stars. I put that all together on a starry backdrop. The card is 6.5x3.875.

  • Stamps: Outline Alphabet, Star Prints, It's a Jungle Out There
  • Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, White
  • Ink:Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories, etc.: Copic markers, Spica markers, pop dots


  1. I love how clean your card turned out. The colors are great and could be used for either a boy or a girl. Its definitely making me want to get that alphabet set, too :)

  2. This is a great layout for children's card and would encompass quite an age range too. I'm just getting back into your FTL sketches Natasha - thank you for sharing those.
