A Sketched Birthday for Carter – Stampin’ Up!

In honor of my son Carter’s third birthday today, I have some party favors embellished using the Sketched Birthday stamp set from Stampin’ Up! (wood mount and clear mount).  We are having a small birthday party at the Build-a-Bear Workshop followed by a teddy bear picnic.  I bought a red and white checked table cloth, and I wanted to brighten up the table and make it festive with some Stampin’ Up! magic!

Teddy Bear Picnic Gift Bag featuring Label Love

I found this tiny teddy bear punch in the back of a drawer (I have no idea when/where I got it from), and I decided it would be a perfect way to embellish the favor bags for the party.  A little DSP and the Label Love stamp set… and “voila” you have a cute gift bag for the guests in a matter of minutes!
