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.

Bring on the Cake Birthday Card with Pom Pom Trim

I LOVE the Bring on the Cake stamp set and there are so many images that look great embossed. Here, I used the “Happy Birthday” stamp, with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then, I colored in the letters using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, and Pumpkin Pie Markers.

The buttons play off the paper and ink colors: Daffodil Delight and Old Olive from the Designer Buttons Brights Collection and a clear heart from Bitty Buttons. I cut out a Melon Mambo heart and attached it to the back of the clear button to make it look pink. All the buttons are threaded with white string. I colored one of the strings with Melon Mambo Marker to give a pop of color. Tiny Glue Dots secure the buttons to the card stock.

For the card base, I used Early Espresso card stock and American Crafts Patterned paper. The Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim was attached along the lower edge of Early Espresso card stock with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. Just run a bead of glue, lay the pom pom trim down and press lightly until it sticks. That layer is attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Inside, I used 2 more sentiments from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Early Espresso ink and colored in with Markers. I used some of the patterned paper and Melon Mambo card stock inside to match the front.

Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Simple Birthday Card

This is a really simple birthday card that took less than 10 minutes to make! Although simple and quick, it’s still pretty, with lots of texture thanks to the new Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Flowers.

The card base is Old Olive card stock, layered with Shades of Spring DSP in a pink striped pattern. I stamped “happy birthday” from Well Scripted in chocolate chip ink on Whisper White card stock and adhered it to the DSP. Then, I took some 1″ Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon and wrapped it around the DSP, attaching the whole thing to the card base with SNAIL adhesive.

To finish off the card, I added two items from the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt: the pink & brown flower and the green leaf. I used glue dots to attach the felt.
