Happy Saturday friends! We are here with Elizabeth Price, one of the Artisan Design Team Members from Stampin’ Up! Who loves birthdays? Today we have something just for you then and of course, a giveaway too 🙂

I think every stamper has at least a few birthday themed stamp sets in their collection. In my stack of stamps, I have the Blow Out The Candles Bundle and the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set! These products are truly a perfect collection to create cards for celebrations.

Each of these birthday cards features the same elements, sponging, and layout. To start each card, stamp and softly sponge a 3-3/4”x 5” piece of Whisper White Cardstock using a Stamping Sponge and Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, and Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads to create simple and custom backgrounds.    

This “Happy Birthday” card panel is layered on a piece of Old Olive Cardstock and those two layers are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on a top fold 4-1/4”x 5-1/2” Highland Heather card base. The outline of the candles is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then each candle is filled in with Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, and Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pads. I cut the greeting out using one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Cardstocks for this card include a layering panel of Highland Heather and a card base of Coastal Cabana.

The greeting for this card is cut with one of the round Stitched Shapes Framelits. The cardstock colors for this card are a layering panel of Coastal Cabana and a card base of Old Olive. All three cards are embellished with a sliver of Silver Glimmer Paper and a Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine shoestring bow.

I am always up for making birthday cards, especially ones filled with fun and spirited colors and with products that mix and match with ease. It’s my hope that you have been inspired to stamp some birthday cards of your own!

Happy creating!
