Stampin’ Up!® Happy Birthday with Happy Thoughts Friday Fun Fold

Hello! I have a wonderful Happy Birthday with Happy Thoughts card for you today for your Friday Fun Fold. The Happy Thoughts stamp set is a great beginner set that is in the 2021 January-June Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. There is a sentiment to put on the front of the card and a longer sentiment for the inside of the card to include: Happy Birthday, Thank You, Congratulations, and Thinking of You. A very versatile stamp set!

The gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) is part of the Fine Art Floral Suite and is called-you guessed it- Fine Art Floral DSP. The little ladybug embellishments are from the Dandy Garden Suite, which I will talk more about later. This lovely handmade birthday card is fairly easy to make, so let’s get started!

Measurements

Measurements: Mossy Meadow Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 8 inches with a score line at 2 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 3/8 x 4 inches and 2 1/2 x 4 inches (for the oval die cut); Mossy Meadow CS: 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 1/2 inch and 2 3/4 x 4 inches (for the oval die cut); and the Fine Art Floral DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/4 x 4 inches.

Stamping

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out the 2 stitched ovals, one from the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS and one from the 2 3/4 x 4 inch Mossy Meadow CS. Next, stamp the sentiment “Happy Birthday” in Mossy Meadow ink onto the Whisper White CS stitched oval. Follow with stamping the inside sentiment in the Mossy Meadow ink onto the 2 3/8 x 4 inch Whisper White CS.

Preparing the Card Base

On the opposite end to the scored end, cut a banner edge. The first cut should be in the center. The second cut is from one corner to the top of the center cut. The third cut is from the other corner to the top of the center cut. Viola! A perfect banner edge every time!

Lay the Mossy Meadow CS card base on the table with the short end on the left. Position the card piece you just cut a banner edge on with the 1/2 inch score line along the right-hand edge of the Fine Art Floral DSP. That will be on the inside of the card base. The Fine Art Floral DSP is just laid down for positioning. Do not adhere the DSP yet. Adhere the 1/2 inch portion of the banner-edged card piece to the inside of the Mossy Meadow CS card base.

Now you may adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Fine Art Floral DSP to the inside of the Mossy Meadow CS card base. Follow by adhering the 2 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Fine Art Floral DSP to the card front. Note: These 2 designs are opposite sides of the same piece of DSP.

Adding the Sentiments

Now you can fold the banner-edged card piece across the card front to see how the card closes. Next you will need to position and adhere the sentiment card piece so that it lies under the banner-edged card piece when the card is closed.

Adhere the “Happy Birthday” Whisper White CS oval to the Mossy Meadow CS oval. In order to give the card some dimension, apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Mossy Meadow CS oval.

Finishing Up

To complete the card, adhere the sentiment piece to the card front. Then use Mini Glue Dots to adhere 3 of the Ladybug Trinkets to the card front. Finish the card by adhering a bow, tied with the Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim, just under the sentiment.

Viola! You have a wonderful Fun Fold to send someone Birthday Wishes!

Art Gallery Simple Stamping Birthday Card

Today is the day the new 2021 January-June Stampin’ Up! catalog goes live! The Art Gallery stamp set is great for this simple stamping Birthday card. The set is a two-step stamp which allows you to add dimension to your stamped image.

This beautiful simple stamping Birthday card is made with Merry Merlot and Flirty Flamingo ink. The Art Gallery stamp set has a variety of sentiments including: thank you, congratulations, good luck, sorry, best wishes, I miss you, and I’m thinking of you. This is a great stamp set for a beginner stamper since there are lovely images and a variety of sentiments.

Measurements

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Merry Merlot CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and Whisper White CS: 3 3/4 x 5 inches.

Stamping

Begin with the Merry Merlot ink and stamp the sentiment “Happy Birthday” as shown onto the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Whisper White CS. Switch to the Flirty Flamingo ink and stamp the large flower with less detail to the left of the sentiment.

Continuing with the Flirty Flamingo ink, apply ink carefully to the flowers on the bunch of flowers stamp. Try not to get ink on the stem and leaf.

Now carefully apply Old Olive ink to the leaf and then the stem.

Huff onto the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp the image on the right side of the Whisper White CS card piece.

Going back to the Flirty Flamingo ink, apply ink to the flowers. Stamp off the edge of the card piece to fill in the space between the first 2 flower stamps. Leave space under the larger flower for the stem and leaf.

Apply more Flirty Flamingo ink to the bunch of flowers and stamp off the edge above the initial bunch of flowers.

Returning to the Old Olive ink, stamp the leaves and stem under the larger flower.

Here is how the card piece looks at this point. Now we will add some dimension and interest.

Two-Step Stamping

Bringing in the Merry Merlot ink, apply ink to the more detailed large flower. Stamp off before stamping onto the card piece. The image is meant to be a little off but there are some landmarks that match up. It doesn’t need to be precise as it is supposed to show a watercolor effect.

Sticking with the Merry Merlot ink, apply ink to the smaller detailed flower and stamp once in the center of the large flower. Follow by stamping on top of each of the smaller flower images. It is interesting to see how this makes the card piece more interesting to look at.

Putting the Card Together

To finish the card, adhere the stamped card piece to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Merry Merlot CS, then to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.

Viola! That is all there is to this card! You could make a bunch of these with different colors and different sentiments. I like to have cards on hand to cover any occasion so I don’t have to rush to make one when a situation arises. The Art Gallery sentiments would make a great collection of all occasion cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by. My plan over the next few months is to post a simple stamping card every Tuesday and continue to post a Fun Fold Card on Fridays. I would like to add another post on Wednesday. Do you have a preference for what I should post? Let me know what you would like by commenting below. Thanks in advance for you suggestions.

Happy Birthday Fun Fold From All Of Us Stampin’ Up!®

I have an awesome Fun Fold Card for you today! This card is great for showcasing the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper(DSP) which is currently one of the DSP’s on sale for 15% off from October 1 – 31, 2020! It makes a perfect background for the From All Of Us stamp set! This is such a fun card, sure to bring a smile to the Birthday person’s face!

Measurements: Pretty Peacock Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches (card base) and 1 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 x 5 1/4 inches, 3 1/2 x 4 inches, and 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches; Pear Pizzazz CS: 2 3/4 x 3 1/8 inches, 1 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches, 7/8 x 5 3/8 inches and two at 1 1/8 x 3 1/8 inches; and the Forever Greenery DSP: 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches and 7/8 x 3 inches.

First I would like to show you how to set up the fun fold Pretty Peacock CS card base. You will need your Stampin’ Up!® Paper Trimmer to be able to make cuts in the middle of the card base. I will be showing you the measurements in the next photo. Here I wanted to show how to place the paper and put the cutting blade to cut in the middle of the paper. Place the left edge of the Pretty Peacock card at the 1 1/4 inch mark with the ruler housing the cutting blade raised. Move the cutting blade to the proper measurement (1 inch), then lower the ruler. Move the blade down to the 5 1/4 inch mark on the ruler with the cutting blade, then lift the ruler.

Here are the measurements for the Pretty Peacock CS card base on Whisper White CS so you can see them better. The solid lines are where you cut.

Turn the Pretty Peacock CS card base and make score lines where the dashed lines are shown here.

To fold the card, first make a mountain at the 4 1/4 inch score line, then a mountain at the 5 1/4 inch score lines. Then you make a mountain at the 1 inch score line and a valley at the 2 inch score line. Use a Bone Folder on all the folds to make them nice and crisp. And that is the card base.

Let’s get stamping!

The group of animals from the From All Of Us stamp set is fairly large. I find it easier to apply an even coat of Memento Black ink if I turn the stamp over and lay it on the table to ink it. Stamp onto the 3 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS.

Stamp the small branch of leaves in the Memento ink onto the upper right corner of the 3 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS.

Stamp the “Happy Happy Birthday” sentiment onto the 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Whisper White CS in Pretty Peacock ink. Try as I may, I could not get this stamp to work without leaving a halo (green arrow). Fortunately it is easy to fix.

I made sure I was applying the ink with a straight downward and upward motion. Despite that, ink was still getting on the edge of the red rubber. This makes it easy to see where to do some trimming with you Paper Snips.

Now that the excess red rubber has been cut away, I can get a nice clean stamp of the sentiment.

I used the 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch when I made this card not realizing that the punch had retired. I did try the 1 1/2 inch Circle punch and it does still fit the sentiment. The 1 1/2 inch Circle Punch is current.

I colored with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I used Bronze for the branch, and the Light & Dark Granny Apple Green for the leaves. Adhere the Whisper White CS with the branch on it to the inside of the Pretty Peacock CS card base.

You are going to laugh– I thought the bird was a Flamingo! After I colored it pink I realized it’s an Ostrich! Oh well, it is a Flirty Flamingo colored Ostrich! The beak is actually Light Poppy Parade. The markers are the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I used the Light & Dark Granny Apple Green for the turtle. The nose for the bear is Ivory and his belly is Light Cinnamon Cider.

The body of the bear is Dark Cinnamon Cider. The cute little monkey was colored in Light & Dark Crumb Cake. I colored the small bird with the Light & Dark Pretty Peacock. The beak is Dark Mango Melody. I love the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers because they are so brightly colorful and easy to blend.

Fussy cut the group of animals.

Adhere the strips of Forever Greenery DSP to the corresponding strips of Pear Pizzazz CS, then adhere them to the Pretty Peacock CS card base as shown. Adhere the 2 3/4 x 3 1/8 inch Pear Pizzazz CS to the center panel.

I used the new Foam Adhesive Sheets cut them into 1/4 inch strips to add dimension to the group of animals where I adhered them to the front panel of the card base. You could also use Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Sprig Punch to punch 2 sprigs from the 1 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Pear Pizzazz CS and 2 from the 1 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Pretty Peacock CS.

Adhere the sentiment circle to the card front by using a 1/4 x 3/4 inch strip of the Foam Adhesive strips (or a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals) and a little adhesive on the monkey. Adhere the sprigs to the back of the sentiment circle.

Yes there is Bling! There just happens to be Butterfly Gems!

I chose the Terracotta Tile colored Butterfly Gems because I wanted them to stand out.

And Viola! You have an awesome 3D Fun Fold Card to wish a “Happy Happy Birthday”!

Posted For You Stampin’ Up!® Birthday Card for beginners

Posted for You is a fun Stampin’ Up!® stamp set in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

The Love stamp in this stamp set reminds me of the Love Series of postage stamps. This Love postage stamp I believe is from 1982. I just love the colors and different flowers.

Today’s birthday card has its own Love stamp as well as some birds and flowers.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches (this is the card base), 4 x 5 1/4 inches, three 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches and 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches; Gorgeous Grape CS: 3 1/2 x 4 inches; Highland Heather CS: 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches and 5/8 x 4 1/2 inches.

Use Memento ink to stamp one of each design onto the three 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch Whisper White CS pieces. Stamp the images about 1/4 inch away from the bottom edge so they will fit in the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch.

Stamp the sentiment “Happy Birthday” in Memento ink onto the 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch Whisper White CS strip. Stamp about 1/4 inch away from the left edge of the Whisper White CS. Note: In this image I stamped too far away from the left edge. When I needed to use the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch I had to trim off a little for it to fit properly.

Punch all of the stamped images out with the Rectangle Postage Stamp punch.

Punch the sentiment “Happy Birthday” out by using the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch as shown. Do the same with the 5 /8 x 4 1/2 inch Highland Heather CS strip.

I colored the stamped images with the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 using the colors pictured above.

I used a heavy hand with the darker areas then lightly added color over the top to create a little more depth. Note: If you have a hard time sharpening the Watercolor Pencils, invest in a metal sharpener from an art supply store. I have found that a dull sharpener just makes the pencil tip crumble. Of course, that could also be due to living in the dry climate here in Arizona.

Adhere the stamped images and the sentiment to the corresponding Highland Heather CS.

Adhere the 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 inch Highland Heather CS to the 3 1/2 x 4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS. Now adhere the stamped image piece to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Adhere the sentiment to the 5/8 inch piece of Highland Heather CS and then to the card front.

To add a little dimension to this card I cut the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips and placed them on the back of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS as shown.

Fold the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS card base at the 5 1/2 inch score line using the Bone Folder so you get a crisp fold. Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS panel to the front of the card base.

Viola! You have made a lovely birthday card! Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think. What do you like about the post? Is there anything I could improve on?

Thanks for visiting. I hope you give this card a try. I found it to be very relaxing to color the images.

Seaside Notions for End of Summer Seaside Birthday Card

This wonderful summer Birthday card was inspired by a swap I received. A swap is a card that you make multiple copies of and take to a stamping event with you. There you will meet others who have made swap and you swap cards with them. Unfortunately I have lost the name of who made the swap I was inspired by.

Measurements: Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inch card base with a score line at 5 1/2 inches, two 4 x 5 1/4 inch, 2 x 4 1/2 inches and 1 x 3 3/4 inches.

I used Memento ink for the stamping and I colored with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I used the light and dark Blend of each of the following colors: Pool Party, Purple Posy, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.

Using the Memento ink, stamp the sea horse onto the 2 x 4 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment onto the 1 x 3 3/4 inch strip of Very Vanilla CS.

On one of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS pieces I stamped a row of the conch shell, then added the sand dollars.

Next I stamped the snail shell. I filled in the spaces with the clam shell. I added another conch shell on the very bottom left and top right. This is a slightly organized random pattern in my book! Ha, ha! 🙂 

Don’t do this step because it turned out to be a mistake later on but i wanted to share this with you so you won’t make the same mistake. On the inside of the card base I stamped another sea horse and two sand dollars. I recommend that you stamp the sea horse and sand dollars onto the other 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS piece.

Again do not do this step. Once I used the Stampin’ Blends to color the sea horse and sand dollars, I realized that the markers bled through to the back. Whoa! 😲 The way I fixed it is that I cut the inside panel to be 4 x 5 1/4 inches and made another 4 1/4 x 11 inch Very Vanilla CS card base.

On with the fun. Color the sea horse with the light and dark Soft Suede Blends.

For each of the shells, I decided to add a shadow to the lower right hand side. I did this by first coloring in the shell with the Light Crumb Cake Blend. I then went over the lower right with the Dark Crumb Cake Blend. Lastly I went over the area I wanted shadowed again with the Light Crumb Cake Blend to blend the light and dark together.

I repeated the process with all the shells. The conch shells are colored in Petal Pink. The snail shell is colored in Pool Party and the clam shell in Purple Posy.

Fussy cut the sea horse that is stamped on the 2 x 4 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS. Place cut up Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the tail and head, leaving the body without Dimensionals.

Adhere the body of the sea horse to the left side of the Happy Birthday sentiment. Cut a banner end on the right end of the sentiment strip.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS stamped with the sea horse to the inside of the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Very Vanilla CS card base. Use the Bone Folder on the 5 1/2 inch score line to make a crisp fold.

Adhere the other 4 1/4 x 5 inch Very Vanilla CS stamped with the shells to the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment strip and adhere in place.

Now for some Bling! The Wink of Stella Glitter Brush is perfect for adding a little sparkle to the sea horse.

Viola! You have a fun end of summer Birthday card to send off to someone special. I just love the sparkle!

Thank you for visiting theresas-treasures.com today. I hope you enjoyed this end of summer card. I am looking forward to some cooler temperatures, but here in Arizona it may be quite awhile. Good thing I can craft inside!
