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.

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.
