Happy Birthday, Everyone Makes Garden Impressions for Retro Rubber

Cheerful Birthday Card Featuring #HappyBirthdayEveryone, #StitchedAllAround, #Birthday, #OhSoSucculent, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

 

We have a great sketch challenge for you over at Retro Rubber that will definitely inspire you. The design team had so much fun that you need to see their creations if you haven’t already. I am always needing birthday cards and love the beautiful font in the Happy Birthday, Everyone stamp set, which was a host stamp set in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog. Then, using some very pretty dies and the brand new Garden Impressions designer paper, this card was done quite quickly. This new DSP is a must-have in my opinion and part of the fantastic Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale going on through July 31. I couldn’t resist inking up a brand new stamp set for the inside sentiment, Stitched All Around. It’s available soon and has coordinating framelits. What a fun bundle!

My Secrets to Making This Project
  • I really wanted the DSP to take center stage on this card and think that was achieved. The best secret to this pretty card is using a sponge to place the liquid adhesive to the thin spaces of the paper on the thinlits. The liquid adhesive will allow you to move and manuever the pieces to get it exactly where you want it. It also keeps the glue from being so thick that it oozes out from under the piece, which will be seen even after it dries.

A Tropical Nonagenarian Birthday Card using Pop of Paradise and Number of Years

Tropical Birthday Card Featuring #PopofParadise, #NumberofYears, #BigOnBirthdays, #Birthday, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

Are you ready for a new challenge? Hand Stamped Sentiments has a wonderful photo inspiration for summer! I love these colors together, don’t you? I had a friend needing a birthday card for her mother who turned 90 years old. Since she lives in Florida, it just had to be a tropical card and these colors were perfect for her. Although Pop of Paradise just retired, it hasn’t left my stamp stash. Flamingos are wonderful and remind me of the years I lived in Florida many moons ago.

My Secrets to Making This Pop of Paradise Project
  • I first had to find the right colors to use but inking the flamingos in Flirty Flamingo was kind of a no brainer LOL! Looking for a good designer paper for the tropical feel I wanted led me to Best Year Ever DSP (retired a few years ago), which fit the bill perfectly. Cutting the card base to make a card that was 5 1/2″ square, I then cut and adhered the Coastal Cabana as my first layer.
  • The fun thinlit from Swirly Scribbles collection cut both the DSP as well as Soft Sky, then both were adhered to the card base.
  • I inked the sentiment in Coastal Cabana and cut it with Oval framelit die. The numbers and flamingos were inked then cut out with coordinating dies and popped up on the card with dimensionals.
  • To balance the card, I inked up the leaves in Coastal Cabana, then cropped them out and topped it with a pretty Flirty Flamingo flower adorned with a black rhinestone.
