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!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical bundle. I used the hibiscus stamp and die from this set to make a yellow flower to send a warm, tropical happy birthday message during this cold season. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the hibiscus flower and three large leaves from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tropical cling stamp set using Sahara Sand ink on Thick Whisper White card stock. I used the coordinating dies from the In The Tropics dies to cut them out. I colored the flower with Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I embossed a panel of Soft Suede card stock with the Coastal Weave embossing folder and adhered it to a Terracotta Tile card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Stitched Lace die and adhered it to the embossed panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I arranged the leaves on the lace panel and adhered them with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tropical cling stamp set on a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with Soft Suede ink. I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered the label to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue over the leaves.

I brushed the flower with clear Wink of Stella to give the flower some sparkle – so pretty! I cut a short length of Braided Burlap trim and unraveled the ends. I folded it and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I added the yellow hibiscus flower to the card front with dimensionals and finished the card front with Crushed Curry crinkled seam binding ribbon.

I stamped the hibiscus flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical stamp set with Sahara Sand ink on a panel of Whisper White after stamping off twice. I made a mask by stamping the flower on copy paper and cutting it out. I laid the mask on the flower and stamped two leaves, also using Sahara Sand ink after stamping off twice. I adhered the panel to a Soft Suede mat and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

I wanted to combine tropical rustic with soft feminine in this birthday card. The rustic is embodied in the coastal weave embossed background and burlap ribbon and the feminine is represented by the lace overlay and sparkle. I think the hibiscus combines the best of both! I hope you like it!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Happy Birthday Card

Good Morning on the last day of 2019! Today I have another sneak peek of the pretty Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle that will be available on Friday when the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog becomes available. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence designer series paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base. I cut a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die. I stamped three stems and some leaves in Mossy Meadow ink on the die cut panel. I ran it through the Scripty embossing folder.

I stamped 3 of the large tulips from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White. I cut out the flowers using the Tulip Builder punch and then colored them with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. I attached them to the embossed panel with dimensionals. It’s too bad the shine from the Wink of Stella doesn’t show very well because the effect is dramatic!

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with another Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the embossed panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed it with a pink Noble Peacock rhinestone gem. I adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the tulip flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White. I brushed the Wink of Stella over it like the flowers on the card front. I added a stem and leaf in Mossy Meadow. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Perennial Essence DSP. I adhered the decorated panel to the inside of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also stamped the tulip, stem and leaves on the left side of a Whisper White Medium Envelope to coordinate with the card.

I love the dark purple tulips in the Springtime, but sadly, there are deer nearby, so I can’t grow them very well. So instead, when the snows melt, I will be greeted by the happy yellow daffodils instead. Can we just skip the snow part?

Have fun and be safe if you are celebrating the New Year’s Eve tonight!

Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek of a stamp set that will be featured in Sale-A-Bration starting on January 3, 2020. It is the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer cling stamp set and it is so cute! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card is a birthday card from a group of people, like something for a co-worker from the rest of the office. I started by stamping the group of meerkats from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the from all of us sentiment underneath in Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the meerkats with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the ground with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I outlined the little critters with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.

I adhered the meerkats to a Basic Black mat with multipurpose liquid glue and tied Grapefruit Grove twine around it and made a bow. I cut a panel of the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper and adhered strips of the other prints in the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack on top of it with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and adhered the layered panel to a Grapefruit Grove card base with dimensionals.

I adhered the meerkat panel to the card base with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the present paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer stamp set along with the single meerkat (this is the Birthday Person!). I colored the meerkat with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer cling stamp set is one of the Sale-A-Bration choices that is FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes). Sale-A-Bration starts on January 3, 2020 with the start of the new Mini Catalog. It is the biggest Stampin’ Up! sale of the year. And these little meerkats are sooo cute!!!

Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet and Happy Birthday To You Sneak Peeks

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek for stamp sets in the new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. My card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the new Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Both of these will be available on January 3, 2020. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The background is made with the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set from the Mini Catalog. Isn’t it pretty? It is a background cling stamp set with line images just bursting with flowers. For this card, I mounted it in my Stamparatus and stamped it in Versamark ink on a Balmy Blue panel. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

Then I cut a strip of vellum with one of the Delicate Lace Dies and wrapped it around the panel, adhering it in the back with snail. I wrapped a length of the new Whisper White crinkled seam binding ribbon around the edge and adhered it in the back with snail. I adhered the panel to a Balmy Blue card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the floral cake from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set in smoky slate ink on a panel of Whisper White. This is one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that will be available FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes) starting January 3, 2020! I colored the image with Balmy Blue, Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I accented the Balmy Blue flowers with Wink of Stella (too bad you can’t see the shimmer very well) and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I added the bow made with the crinkle seam binding ribbon and three pearls.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Balmy Blue on a panel of Whisper White. I stamped and heat embossed a strip of Balmy Blue to match the front and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet is going to be an awesome addition to the lineup of background stamps, providing lots of versatility in creating a feminine florals. And one of the stamps that it coordinates with perfectly is the birthday cake in the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Both will be available on January 3, 2020.
