Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Sampler Card

Today’s card is one of three cards included in my July Card Sampler. Place a minimum $50 order at my Stampin’ Up! online store using the host code VEKBEWZT and I’ll send you all of the paper and embellishments needed to make two of today’s card along with four more cards in two other designs. Plus, for every $50 purchase, you’ll earn a $5.00 Bonus Coupon from Stampin’ Up! You’ll be able to redeem your coupons when you place an order August 4-31.  There’s no limit to how many Bonus Coupons you can earn!  


Happiest of Birthdays


To complete the card kits in the July Sampler, you’ll need to supply your own stamp set, ink and adhesive.  For today’s card, I used the stamp set, Happiest of Birthdays.  You can use what you already own or purchase the set.  There’s nothing like seeing products in person and my card samplers are a great way to play with Stampin’ Up! products. 

The last day to sign up for my July Card Sampler is tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! Updates

  • The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine will be available for purchase on September 1, 2020.  Unfortunately the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine won’t be available until later in the year as production has been impacted by COVID-19. 


  • If you’ve tried to order ink refills of our new In Colors, I apologize for your frustration in being unable to order them. Our manufacturer of ink refill bottles has been involved in the production of medical products during COVID-19.  Stampin’ Up! will provide more inventory just as soon as they can.  Thank you for your patience.

Happy Birthday Pocket Card

Today’s card is a fun one because it’s a pocket card!  The folds create a little pocket where the Whisper White cardstock slips in.  It would be easy to add a gift card with glue dots and when the cardstock is lifted out of the pocket, ta da!, a gift card!

This card is one of the ones featured in my January Card Kits.  When you place an order with me in the month of January using the host code BCDR6NRJ, you’ll receive all of the supplies to make today’s card along with two other cards (you need to provide adhesive, ink and stamps).  All of the paper will be cut, scored, punched, die cut and ready for you to assemble! A PDF will also be included with pictures, measurements and supply lists.  If you aren’t sure how to use the Host Code, click here for directions.

This month, there’s no minimum order needed to receive the January Card Kits and PDF and if you bump your order to $50, in addition to receiving a  Sale-a-bration item from Stampin’ Up!, you’ll also receive an extra goodie from me in your thank you package.  Click here to start shopping!

Have a great day!

Birthday Blooms Gift Card Holder

I’ve been in a gift card making mood and have several more for you this week! But first, if you follow my blog, you know that for the last several months I’ve been posting Monday – Friday.  I wanted to let you know that I’m going to make a small change in my schedule and you can count on my posts Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.  I won’t be posting tomorrow but I’ll have one more way to package a gift card on Saturday.

On to today’s project!  This is a small card and will definitely fit into one of our Whisper White Medium Envelopes with some extra space. You could also tuck it inside a small gift bag and just forget the envelope!

As you can see from the picture, your gift card slides in to the pocket. 

The sentiment sits on a scalloped oval which has Stampin’ Dimensionals along the bottom edge.  That way, the top flap can tuck underneath it.  Hopefully the picture helps in understanding this.

I used Party Animal Designer Series Paper to decorate the panels of the holder.  This paper is currently on the retiring list and on sale.  It’s normally $11.00 but you can get it, while supplies last, for $6.60! 


Base:   8-3/4″ x 3-1/2″    score on long side at 3-1/4″ and 7-1/4″

(Use tear and tape to adhere the sides together to make a pocket)

Designer Series Paper:  3-1/4″ x 3″    and    3-1/4″ x 1-1/4″

Stamping Supplies – Click on any picture below and you’ll be directed to my Stampin’ Up! online store.  From there it’s easy to add an item to your cart!
