I heart Papers Birthday Bash Day #2

I Heart Papers Birthday Bash
I was asked to play along today, to help celebrate the I heart Papers Birthday.  For today's card, I made a stair step fold card.  They are really fun to do if you like to make scene cards.  This is a cleaner look for a stair step card (I'm sick and it was so hard for me to make anything), but you can dress it up and add lots of embellishments, stamps etc, to suit your taste.  Everything I used on this card, can be found at the I heart papers store.  The sentiment was made by using some Just Rite stamps, and the flowers are from the Earth Love chipboard elements set.  Head on over to Deb's blog I'm sure she has a beautiful card to share with you today!!  Scroll down to the bottom to see how you can win some fun prizes!

IHP Birthday Bash Challenge —Day 2

When you’re inviting guests to your party, you really want an invitation that will grab their attention!  One way to do that is to create a cool, funky fold, so...

Our challenge for you today is to make a card using a non-traditional fold. Remember, everything this week has to do with birthday celebrations...so be sure your creation is birthday related!

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 IHPBB2. 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.

Here are the hosts for each day.  Be sure to check their blogs on their scheduled day to find out that day’s challenge.  You can also check the main IHP Birthday Bash page at the store.  It will be updated daily.
