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.

I really love butterflies so I appreciate this set.

The Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (DSP) is yours for free during Sale-a-bration, January 5- February 28, 2021 when you place a $50 order!

Supplies:

Measurements: Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 3 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 1/2 x 4 inches and 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches; Garden Green CS: 3 x 3 1/2 inches; Rich Razzleberry CS: 3 x 3 1/2 inches; Rococo Rose CS: 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches, 3 x 3 inches and 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 inches.

Stamping:

Stamp the bunch of butterflies on the 3 x 4 inch pieces of Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry CS in Blackberry Bliss ink.

Continuing with the Blackberry Bliss ink, stamp the frame onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS and then stamp “Thank you for your kindness” inside the frame as shown. The sentiment (and the one below) are from the new Dragon Fly Garden stamp set.

“You are an inspiration” is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink onto the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS.

Using the Garden Green ink, stamp the bunch of butterflies onto the 3 x 3 1/2 inch Garden Green CS.

Fussy Cut the above pieces from what you have stamped. Save the remaining pieces for another card. Note: If you have the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine you can cut the pieces with the Fluttering Dies.

Putting It Together:

First, adhere the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS with the sentiment stamped on it to the 3 x 3 inch Rococo Rose CS. Now adhere the 3 x 3 inch Oh So Ombre DSP to the 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 inch Rococo Rose CS.

Next adhere the 2 7/8 x 4 inch Oh So Ombre DSP to the front panel of the Rich Razzleberry CS card base. Then adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Oh So Ombre DSP to the inside panel.

Lay the inside sentiment piece where you want it and then adhere the piece in place on the inside panel.

Stampin’ Dimensionals are used to adhere the Oh So Ombre DSP/Rococo Rose CS card piece so that it covers the sentiment piece on the inside panel. Note: Only put the Dimensionals on the back of the left hand side and leave the right hand side free. Adhere the stamped frame with the sentiment as shown, again placing the adhesive on the left hand side and avoiding adhesive on the right hand side.

You can use your Bone Folder to curl the all of the butterflies wings slightly. Adhere the Rococo Rose CS butterfly to the inside panel.

Lay out the leaves and butterflies to your liking, then adhere them to the card front.

Finishing Up:

Now for the Bling! The Elegant Faceted Gems have a light pink gem that goes well with the Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry butterflies.

I added a few gems to the butterflies on the front and two to the butterfly on the inside of the card.

Viola! You have a gorgeous card to thank some one and make their day!

I really appreciate you stopping by and visiting today. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
