Celebrate Today Stamp & Matching Framelits {Balloon Birthday Cards}

Here are 2 cards I made using the Stampin’ UP! Celebrate Today Photopolymer stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. They have the same basic layout and design, but I switched up the colors a bit. The first card uses the Polka Dot Embossing Folder on a Crumb Cake card stock base. The Balloon Framelits cut out my Coastal Cabana balloon. In keeping with the polka dot theme, I stamped the dots from the stamp set on the balloon and topped them off with Crystal Effects for dimension.  The “happy” is from the Hello You Thinlits and the “Birthday” is from Hooray It’s Your Day stamp set. I stamped it on Vellum with Chocolate Chip ink. A strip of Chocolate Chip card stock along the bottom and some Early Espresso Bakers Twine tied in a bow finish off the card.

The second card uses the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, crumb cake and pink pirouette card stock. I stamped the stars/confetti on the balloon in Gold Encore ink, then added stars punched from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Confetti Stars Border Punch. The sentiment is from Hooray its Your Day, this time stamped in white craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The bakers twine is from the January 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit.

{To a Classic} Birthday Card for Dads

This is a card I made for my father in law’s birthday. It uses the stamp set To a Classic. The card base is chocolate chip card stock. layered with Very Vanilla and Elegant Soiree DSP in this striped pattern.

I stamped the images in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The car and the DAD circles were stamped again on Very Vanilla scrap, cut out and adhered to the base image with stampin dimensionals. The car was colored in with Baja Breeze marker and then topped with Crystal Effects.

Around the edges of the stamped layer, I sponged some chocolate chip ink, then matted it onto chocolate chip card stock.

For a fun accent, I stamped the speedometer on Very Vanilla with chocolate chip ink, punched out the circles and matted them on Baja Breeze card stock sponged with chocolate chip ink. Then, I used a Game Spinner arrow for the center of the speedometer, and of course I put it all the way to 100 mph!

Bring on the Cupcake

The color combo used here is Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizazz and Chocolate Chip. It’s a go to combination for me. By changing up the stamps, it works for boys or girls, women or men. In this case, it was for a boy’s birthday, but just as easily could be appropriate for anyone.

I stamped the Pear Pizazz layer with Hello Friend (available July 1st) in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. “Happy Birthday” is from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Chocolate Chip craft ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I colored in the letters with new In Color Pool Party Marker.

The cupcake is a non-SU stamp that I colored in with SU Markers and topped off with Crystal Effects. On either side, I added Glimmer Brads. (I love them–I don’t use them enough!)
