Stampin’ Friends Birthday Bash

Stampin' Friends Birthday Bash

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' Friends Birthday Bash

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!

Stampin' Friends Birthday Bash

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.

Valentine Card with Heartfelt Bundle

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.

Purchase the Heartfelt Bundle for $45.75 (that’s 10 percent discount for purchasing the stamp set and punches as a bundle) and add the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series paper for $14.50 and you qualify for one free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Choose your favorite from among exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, a punch, framelits, shiny baker’s twine, a card kit, and more.
