Stamp Focus: Happy Birthday To You

Hello friends! 
It is my turn to share multiple projects with one stamp set over Altenew Card Blog.
I am sharing a few projects with the new musical stamp set "Happy Birthday to you".
When I first saw this stamp set, my thought was: " hello...., where have you been all my life!?". This set offers the true and correct version of the 'Happy Birthday" music, lyrics, notes and many extra musical images. In fact, if you are ever so inclined to compose music, this stamp set will allow you to do just that!  I took the stamp set for a whirl and these are my own musical interpretation!

(All products used are listed at the end of this post)

 For my first card, I simply stamped the music score and verses (in Obsidian Pigment Ink) accordingly and you will get a very musical design.

 The key to stamping this clean and orderly design is to plan out the space and order ahead. A stamp positioner like MISTI is certainly helpful. Once the images are all stamped, I added Marsh Land Washi Tape for the subtle background.

 I then die cut the Treble Love Die Set in red and black cardstock and then pieced the two together. This makes the perfect score, don't you think?

Of course, Happy Birthday to You works wonders with any of the Altenew floral images! I took out the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set and came up with this design.

 I started out with stamping the dandelion and stems ( Maple Yellow, Green Field and Just Green). After arranging the musical notes in a cluster on my MISTI, I then stamped the notes in the rainbow colors.

To ground the design, I applied the Golden Stream Washi Tape.
This provides extra shine and instant pops of colors!

To show the sharp contrast, I stamped the two sentiment in Silver Lake and Obsidian Pigment Ink.
My last card is an easy take with a simple tone on tone background stamping ( Hazelnut Crisp Dye Ink on Parchment Cardstock).

For the Treble Love Die Set, I die cut the Gradient Card Stock and white card stock. From top to bottom, I used Shades of Purple , Cherry BlossomSummer Afternoon and Red Cosmos.

 For the sentiment, I applied the Gold Foil 0.5 inch Washi Tape to white cardstock and and die cut it through Mini Blossom (with the Metal Shim). After assembling, I popped up the images with foam tape. From the next photo, you can also see the bold "Happy Birthday" (top left) card created from this stamp set.

Love the music theme!

Great music themed cards. I must say that the last one jumps out at me as it so different. Love the tone on tone look on the parchment cardstock! The many shades of the gradient cardstock are perfect with the parchment color and look great with the gold sentiment. I need to remember to use washi tape for die cuts.

Awesome set of birthday sentiments and images! Great cards!

I love all kinds of music and played the violin, viola and cello when I was young, so this stamp/die set immediately turned me on. Love, love, love everything you've done with it here. Clever designs including washi, kraft and patterned paper...they're all so different with the same theme.

Always a joy to see your work Virginia! I miss making music cards as a "yenvelope" for the piano teacher each week. Kids are grown and gone now so maybe I need to start taking my own lessons? Great inspiration here! Be well friend!
