Happy Stampers Birthday Card Blog Hop – Stampin’ Up!

The Happy Stampers are back today with a Blog Hop that is all about Birthdays!  I have created three projects for you today featuring the Celebrate Today stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and the Hello You Thinlits Dies.

Celebrate Today Joy Fold (2 of 16)My projects today are made using the “Joy Fold” technique.  I have been having a great time with this fold lately.  It is a wonderful way to use your Designer Series Paper for a great impact with not too much effort.  The cards today feature the Birthday Bash Specialty DSP, which I am totally in love with!

This picture shows you how the Joy Fold card opens up.  when it is closed, the card just looks like a series of layered panels, but when you open it up, you see that the fold is a bit special.

Another product that I love is the Hello You Thinlits Dies.  For my first card I wanted to pull in a little gold to match the gold balloons in the DSP.  I cut the “happy” die  from the Hello You Thinlits five times (4 Bermuda Bay & 1 Gold Foil) and layered them for a three dimensional element.

On the inside of the card, I created a little pocket for a gift card!  Isn’t that just too cute!  And, there’s still plenty of room for a little birthday message on the top flap of the card.

My next two projects are variations on the same theme.  I used the Celebrate Today stamp set and Balloon Framelits Dies to create the front of each card.  Two of the balloons are stamped directly on the card stock using the masking technique, and the third is die cut from the Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets.  I played around with variations of the Hello You Thinlits and the Crazy About You  stamp set for the sentiments on each card.

I used different variations of the Birthday Bash Specialty DSP for each card to give them slightly different looks.  For this card, I left the inside blank instead of including the gift card pocket.

Celebrate Today Birthday Gift Wrap – Stampin’ Up!

My cousin’s daughter recently celebrated her 4th birthday, and I just couldn’t resist making her gift something truly amazing with the Celebrate Today stamp set and matching Balloon Framelits Dies from Stampin’ Up! (Available as a bundle for a 15% discount.)

Isn’t that just about the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?  You’d better believe it stood out on the gift table at the birthday party!  In fact, Naomi’s mom saved it and said she is going to put it in a shadow box with some pictures of her at age 4!

I love all the details that the Celebrate Today stamp set has.  The stars and polka dots are just so cute.  Combine those with the matching die set, and this set is very versatile for a wide variety of celebrations.

In order to personalize the gift, I stamped the number 4 and Naomi’s name on some of the balloons using  the Larger than Life Alphabet & Numbers stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

I have to say, I am very impressed with myself on this one. LOL.  This gift is just so stinkin’ cute!  Although it did take some time to put together, I had a ball doing it… and really, it didn’t take as long as it looks like it did. 🙂  If you are a fan of this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the very bottom of this post following the supply list.
