Hello! There is exciting news in the Stampin’ Up! world! The 2022 Stampin’ Up! January to June Mini Catalog is live! And it is Sale-a-bration Time again! Today I am using a FREE Sale-a-bration item for my Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card!
What is Sale-a-bration? Sale-a-bration is a promotion by Stampin’ Up! during which you earn FREE product for a qualifying order. In the USA it is $50 for most of the FREE product. There are two selections that require a $100 order. View a PDF of the 2022 Mini Catalog HERE and the Sale-a-bration Brochure HERE. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email at email@example.com.
I have a follow up on a post I did on the In The Moment stamp set and different coloring techniques. The most popular technique was the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker! I must admit that I really love to color with the Blends.
Ok, now for the Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card!
The #SimpleStamping Challenge for this month was to create a card using just Stamps, Ink and paper-and to use a Sale-a-bration product.
This card is made with the Friendly Hello Stamp Set + Friendly Hello 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is available as a set with an order of $100 USD.
Here is how I did it:
Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card:
- Basic White Card Stock (CS): 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches
- Friendly Hello DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches
- Pale Papaya CS card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
- Pale Papaya
- Granny Apple Green
- Fresh Freesia
- Balmy Blue
- Evening Evergreen
Starting with the inside of the card, stamp the flowers in Pale Papaya ink onto the 4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp in Granny Apple Green ink using the leaf sprig. Finish with the Fresh Freesia ink and the small berry bunch. Set aside.
Now we will make the front of the card. Using Balmy Blue Ink, stamp the image of the bird on the branch in the center of the 3 1/3 x 4 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “Hope you have the BEST BIRTHDAY” in Evening Evergreen Ink in the lower left-hand corner. Using the Pale Papaya Ink stamp the flowers around the bird. Now stamp in Granny Apple Green Ink using the sprig of leaves.
To complete the front of the card, stamp in Fresh Freesia Ink using the small berries.
Assembling the Card
First adhere the stamped inside panel to the inside of the Pale Papaya CS card base.
Next adhere the stamped card front to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Friendly Hello DSP.
Adhere the stamped front/DSP panel to the front of the card base. Voila! Super simple and very beautiful! Perfect for the #SimpleStamping Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a chance to try this amazing Friendly Hello Stamp Set and Friendly Hello DSP! Have an awesome day!
