Paper Players 327 and Sunday Stamps 144

Over the last few years, I've gathered up a collection of music themed items: papers, dies, embossing folders and a very few stamps. I'm not sure why music seems to be a hard area to find good stamps in but there it is. This carefully hoarded collection has been created because I have a son who is a very passionate composer and performer. Consequently, many scrapbooking layouts have been devoted to musical pursuits! Today I needed to raid the box as his birthday is this week.

For inspiration I've used the sketch at Sunday Stamps and the colour challenge at The Paper Players.

For my extra colour, I've chosen Bermuda Bay.

The musical note embossing folder I bought online a couple of years ago and is a Darice folder. It makes a good backdrop for the clef die cuts.

I cut a black and a Bermuda Bay of each clef, stacked them but offset the black to create a shadow.

So, Happy Birthday son!

Card: Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps: Stampin' Up Big on Birthdays and Labeller Alphabet
Inks: Bermuda Bay and Tuxedo Black
Other: Darice music embossing folder, Elizabeth Craft Treble Clef dies, dimensionals, black candy dot.

  4. oh, i just love this! it was the first one i noticed in the gallery :) no one i know is anywhere near as talented as your son obviously is, but i love music themes anyway, and i completely agree with you about how hard it is to find good music theme paper crafting supplies.
