Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday to You

I used the stamp set, Happy Birthday to You, a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 order, to create today’s card.  The coordinating Birthday Dies, just released on Tuesday, were used to cut the cake and stand. These dies, along with four others, are only available while supplies last so grab them while you can! 

 

Birthday Dies

 

The cake image was stamped using a Basic Gray Stampin’ Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Usually when I’m going to use my Stampin’ Blends, I use Memento ink but I went with gray for a softer look. The blends I used to color the image were:  Flirty Flamingo (light and dark), Granny  Apple Green (light and dark) and Smoky Slate (light).  After cutting the cake with the Birthday Dies, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.

The base of the card is Flirty Flamingo with a layer of Whisper White that was embossed using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder.  Before adhering this layer to the Flirty Flamingo, I wrapped our Metallic-Edged Ribbon around the cardstock and used Multipurpose Glue to attach it to the card base.  

The sentiment was stamped in Smoky Slate onto Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered it to a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attached it below the ribbon. Using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend, I colored my rhinestones and then placed one in the middle of the three large flowers.

Quick and Easy Card with Sponging

Happy Birthday sponged

Has your week started off well?  Mine has been very busy with my daughters and granddaughter.  That’s the best kind of busy!

My card today was created with our Stamping Sponges and stamp pads.  I used Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and Rose Red.  After it dried, I stamped the birthday greeting with black Staz-On.  I added  dimensionals to the back and my card was finished very quickly!  I’m always trying to create cards that I can easily send off in the mail so although I wanted to add more to this card, I decided to just leave it as is.   If you would like to see a video on how to create this effect with sponges, let me know and I’ll make a video.

Have a terrific day and thank you for stopping by!
