Sprinkles of Life for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop – Stampin’ Up!

NEW Blog Hop Header
The Happy Stampers are back with a new color challenge!  My card share today features the Sprinkles of Life stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I’m always in need of cute cards for all the birthday parties my son gets invited to, and this project fits the bill.  I love how the stamp set coordinates with the Tree Builder Punch too!

Can you believe one stamp set can be used to create clouds, trees, cupcakes, ice cream cones, or even a basket of flowers… that’s one versatile tool!

Card Recipe and Tips:

Card Base: Whisper White Thick Card Stock – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″

Layers: Mint Macaroon 4″ x 5-1/4″, It’s My Party DSP 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″, Melon Mambo 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4″, Whisper White 3″ x 3-1/2″

Art Piece: Whisper White 2″ Circle Punch, Tree Builder Punch & Candles, Mint Macaroon 2-1/2″ Circle Punch

  • Stamp the images on Whisper White card stock in waterproof ink.  Choices are Archival or StazOn Black (I used Basic Gray Archival for a softer image).
  • I used the lids of my ink pads and my aqua painter to add the color to the cupcake and candles.
  • I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the sentiment.  Don’t forget to “huff” on the stamp to remoisten the ink before stamping.  Press down firmly for a clean image and good ink coverage.
  • I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the cupcake a little extra dimension and interest.
  • I fussy cut the candles with scissors.

And the Winner is…

I did it again!  I forgot to do the blog candy drawing with my Tuesday post.  Luckily, I remembered on my own this time, without needing a reminder from my loyal readers!  So, without further ado, the random number generator picked comment #18, which is Suzanne!  Congratulations, you are the lucky recipient of the Banner Blast stamp set and Banner Punch!  Please send me your mailing address, and I will get that to you in the mail!

Now, onto today’s project!  Have I mentioned recently how much I LOVE the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies! Last week I had a birthday party to go to and I was able to whip up this super cute gift card envelope using the Flashback DSP and the Amazing Birthday stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Amazing Birthday Gift Card Envelope (2 of 5)

 I just love how the washi tape adds a great design element to this gift card envelope!  As an added benefit, it also provides reinforcement for the folds so they will hold up better as the envelope is opened and closed!

I made a little enclosure card to match the envelope to give the gift a finishing touch!

This gift card holder is so cute and it was very quick to make! I’m sure that you can see the possibilities are endless for creating wonderful gifts with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies.  If you are a fan of this project, please pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the bottom of this post below the supply list.
