Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away Birthday Card

You know when you see a stamp or bundle in a catalog and don’t put it on your wish list.

And then you start seeing amazing cards using it over and over again and then suddenly you NEED it, yesterday!

Well, that’s how I came about getting the All Squared Away Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away Birthday Card

My card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock, on which I adhered a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

**This pack of paper is HUGE and 15% off right now!!!! Grab another pack of DSP while you’re at it, and I’ll send you my 9 Tips for Using Designer Series Paper! More details at the end of this post.

I then took a Soft Sea Foam pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper, matted it on Basic White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front.

I used the Floral Squares Dies to cut out three, well, floral squares and then cut three squares from Soft Sea Foam, Calypso Coral, and Balmy Blue cardstock and adhered them over each other. I adhered the Calypso Coral one down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Squared Away Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink and added a couple of Artistry Blooms Sequins the squares.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

You can find inspiration anywhere for paper crafting.

One of my favorite places to turn to for inspiration is Pinterest. It’s jam packed with all things inspiration and not just cards.
You can find nature images and paintings and the such and you can also find a ton of color inspiration.

I’ve actually created a board just for color inspiration and that’s how today’s card came about. Check it out. You’ll even find the inspiration for today’s card that I pinned a couple of days ago!

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

My card starts off Gray Granite cardstock which I covered with a Gray Granite pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.

I next took a panel of Basic White cardstock and using the Stamparatus (which is key to getting the perfect alignment of stamped birthdays) I stamped the birthday from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set in So Saffron, Gray Granite, Pear Pizzazz, and Shaded Spruce ink.

I then matted this on a panel of Basic White and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the “happy” in Shaded Spruce ink and fussy cut it out, adhering it down with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

I next stamped the balloons from the Hippo Happiness Stamp Set in So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out with the Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the strings in Gray Granite ink and fussy cut them out.

Thanks for checking out my card today.

Isn’t this a beautiful combination of colors. You probably think masculine card when you see it (as I’ve used it today). But I’ve created the same layout, same colors, just a pretty, girly card with flowers and bling.

I’m sharing it this week in my Tips & Updates email. If you don’t already receive it, you can head over here. You’ll get to see the feminine version of today’s card tomorrow!! Don’t miss out!

I have a fun opportunity for you coming up in July – a Stamp Camp in a Box.

Think all the fun things we love about an event, but with the flexibility for you to do the projects at your leisure and when is most convenient for you.

Included in the Stamp Camp in a box will be $40 in product, 8 Make-n-Takes (6 cards, 2 other), 2 pillow gifts, and an exclusive gift. The cost is $90 which includes shipping.

The Make-n-Takes use the beautiful Plentiful Plants Bundle, which you will need to put them together. If you do not already have this bundle, you can add it to the event, which I am offering at 15% off the regular price.

You also have the option to tack on two classes – a Christmas in July and Create with Friends class for an additional fee.

If you want to go rogue and do things all on your own, you can purchase just the PDF for the Make-n-Takes.

You can find ALL the information and a form to register here. Space is limited so don’t wait!!!
