Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have a cute, colorful birthday card made with the new Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies bundle from the new Stampin’ Up! January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. The Bonanza Buddies photopolymer stamp set has the cutest little critters and the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper has fun colors with pretty party designs. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post with the sizes of cardstock used.

The lay out for my card is based on the sketch in CAS(E) this Sketch #354:

I adhered a panel of the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper to a Bermuda Bay card base. I added another strip of the DSP (the one with the balloons) along the side. Then I used the tag die from the Bonanza dies, that is part of the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies bundle, to cut tags from the speckled light Bermuda Bay and birthday candles paper in the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack. I offset the tags and adhered them together with multipurpose liquid glue added some Crushed Curry seam binding ribbon to the top tied with the metallic Bermuda Bay twine. This twine is from the Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins pack that is FREE as part of Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order.

I adhered the tags to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped and die cut the lion from the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies bundle next. The lion is made with 3 stamps – one with the body and head, one with the mane and tail tip and one with the face. I stamped the body and head in Daffodil Delight, the mane and tail in Mango Melody and the face with Memento Tuxedo Black, all on whisper white card stock. Then there are two dies – one with the head and body and one with the mane and tail. So I cut them out using the dies – giving me four die cuts. I adhered the face to the mane and the tail tip to the tail. Then I adhered the body to the tag with multipurpose liquid glue and the face and mane on top with dimensionals. Then I stamped the hat in Poppy Parade ink and the Pompom in Bermuda Bay ink on a scrap of Whisper White and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I die cut the hat a little crooked so I used my paper snips to straighten it out and adhered it to the lion’s head with multipurpose liquid glue.

I die cut two of the pennant banners from the Birthday Bonanza DSP and adhered them to the bottom, using multipurpose liquid glue over the tags, and dimensionals over the background. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Bermuda Bay card stock. I trimmed the ends and adhered it to the card with multipurpose liquid glue and a piece of a dimensional.

I decorated the inside by stamping the balloons in Memento Tuxedo Black, Bermuda Bay, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies stamp set and added a strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP to the bottom before adhering to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies bundle has so many stamps and is so versatile for creating birthday or party themed cards. The little critters are so cute and the dies are so versatile with a tag die and party banners. And coupled with the pretty Birthday Bonanza designer series paper, you have perfect compliments to make cheerful, fun projects for kids of all ages!
