Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Birthday Bash Blog Hop. This month’s hop features birthday cards. Everyone has a birthday, and we always need inspiration. If you are following along on the hop, you have arrived from Lisa Ann Bernard’s blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below, and continue to Heidi Collins’ blog.
Here are the projects I created for this month’s hop.
Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Suite
My inspiration comes from many places, and a version of today’s card can be found in Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. It uses brand-new items from the Tropical Oasis Suite found on pages 38-40. There are many fun, beachy, tropical elements to the suite: from the stamp set to coordinating dies, the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, Braided Burlap Trim, and the ever-so-cute Tropical Oasis Trinkets.
Here’s a link to the catalog: January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.
i just love everything tropical, so this suite spoke to me. My favorite flamingo images can be found on a couple of sheets of 12 x 12 paper included in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. This birthday card could be used for both males and females.
The card is layered on a Crumb Cake base and includes a patterned piece from the Tropical Oasis DSP. I stamped the palm trees (found in the Timeless Tropical stamp set) with Early Espresso ink and cropped them with the palm tree die from the In the Tropics Dies. The birthday sentiment is stamped with Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White card stock. I punched the image with Stampin’ Up!’s Timeless Label Punch. I added a small strip of Mango Melody for some color and added a bit of Linen Thread tied in a bow.
In addition to the birthday card, I decorated one of Stampin’ Up’s Mini Pizza Boxes. This 3D item makes a perfect gift card holder!
I carried the birthday card design to the box, using pieces of the Tropical Oasis DSP, the palm trees, and the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop today. Please let me know if you have any questions about the card or the pizza box. I’m happy to help. Look for a list of products used (and links to my online store) at the very end of today’s post.

Who needs Valentine card ideas? It’s about a month away! Stampin’ Up!’s Heartfelt Bundle offers a perfect combination of a stamp set and two punches to get the job done. Add a package of the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper and you’re good to go. I love that the DSP has a couple of sheets of heart images that can be punched directly from the paper. This card features one of the hearts, and I layered it on a scallop heart punched through Silver Foil.

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season
I’m sure I’ve said this before: I love so many things in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog. I started playing with the Snowman Season Bundle, and I’m hooked. The stamp set has a coordinating Snowman Builder Punch and really fun Designer Series Paper — Let It Snow.
The Snowman on this card was punched directly from the Designer Series Paper. I included a hat punched from Black Foil and a background with the Real Red Glimmer Paper. You can also punch a hat design directly from the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper.
Order the punch and the stamp set together and receive a 10 percent discount on the bundle. Also, through September 30, I’m offering free shipping on all orders more than $30. Order directly from my online store at kimquade.stampinup.net or contact me directly to place your order. When you order online, I’ll send you a check to reimburse for your shipping costs. This is a great opportunity to get a few of the items on your wish list.
