Flower Fancy Birthday Pearls


This is a birthday card using the Flower Fancy stamp set. By changing out the sentiment, this could make a beautiful Easter card, Get Well card, Thank You card, or general all occasion card.

The card base is Marina Mist textured card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip and Nursery Suite DSP. Across the front, I added Marina Mist 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

As I mentioned earlier, the flower is from Flower Fancy, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White. I colored the flower in with Pretty in Pink ink and an Aquapainter. The center is colored with So Saffron. To finish, I sprayed them with Shimmer Mist and cut them out with scissors. Using Basic Pearls, I dressed up the center of the flower with the adhesive back pearls in 3 different sizes. They are adhered to the base with stampin dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from On Your Birthday in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Using the sponge dauber, I sponged Pretty in Pink ink around the edges and matted it onto Chocolate Chip card stock. Underneath the sentiment, I used more of the Basic Pearls.

“Birthday Wishes” Game Spinner Card

I think this Take a Spin stamp set is perfect for making birthday cards. Young or old, anyone would enjoy getting this type of card and spinning it over and over again. I know I do it when I’m making the cards!

The card base is So Saffron, layered with Chocolate Chip cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then, I used Nursery Suite Specialty DSP in the So Saffron/White pattern cut to 3 3/4″ x 3″. Above that, across the front of the card, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Pumpkin Pie.

I used Stampin UP Markers to color the stamp (direct to stamp), then colored in some of the images with the Markers as well. The colors I used were: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, and Daffodil Delight.

The game board is layered on a 2″ square of Marina Mist card stock, and I used the Game Spinner Hands from the Occasions Mini Catalog. For more tips and tricks on using the Game Spinner Hands, see this card I made.

Finally, the sentiment at the bottom is from So Happy for You from the Sale-a-bration catalog, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.

Take a Spin {Fun Birthday Spinner Card}

Well, Birthday season in my family has officially begun. It starts off slowly in February, then gets CRAZY in March (8 birthdays in the month of March alone) and then every month thereafter. I guess I”ll be making a lot of birthday cards!

This Take a Spin stamp set is a lot of fun. I went to town coloring in all the images with my SU Markers, both directly onto the stamp and then filling in some of the images after it was stamped.

There are 4 different stamps in the set, and the Game Spinner Hands are sold separately in a set of 12.

As you can see from the close up above, I colored the majority of the stamp with Chocolate Chip Marker, (direct to stamp)  using Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Marina Mist as accent colors. Then, I stamped onto Whisper White card stock and trimmed around the game board.

Next, I stamped the image a second time, with White Craft ink onto Marina Mist card stock, heat embossing with White Embossing Powder.

Using the cropadile, I punched a hole in the center of the game board and attached the Game Spinner Hand.  Then, I adhered that piece to the Marina Mist card stock using stampin dimensionals. TIP: If you just slightly bend the ends of the Spinner Hands upward it will spin easily.

My new favorite thing, Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim, was glued around the Marina Mist card stock with Tombow Mono Multi. I added a square of card stock behind this piece with stampin dimensionals for added stability so the game board wouldn’t cave in when you touch the spinner.

The card base is Chocolate Chip, which I ran through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The ribbon is 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Marina Mist.

Inside, I lined the card with Marina Mist and Whisper White card stock. I swiped the edges of the White in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped 2 sentiments from Bring on the Cake.
