Birthday Cheer

Birthday Cheer is a fun stamp set that is in the 2019 Stampin’ Up!® Occasions Catalog.  It has a matching set of dies that are amazing (even though I did not use them on this particular card). This set has everything you need to make some cute birthday cards including some sentiments with a fun font.  Of course, If you have been following my blog at all you have probably noticed that I purchases most everything in this catalog.  I love it all!

To make this card, I first stamped the present in Bermuda Bay Ink and fussy cut it out (fussy cut means cut by hand in case you didn’t know).  Then I colored it using the Highland Heather, Pool Party and a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock out of one of the circles in the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.  I popped up the present using some Dimensionals and then attached this to a circle I had cut out of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink and then cut it out using a Rectangle Stitched Die.  This cut out was not quite long enough to go across the card, so I cut it in half and adhered half of it to one side of the card and the other half to the other side and adhered the present over it so you could not tell.  I used the 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in Gorgeous Grape.

Birthday Cheer

A couple of weeks ago I showed you how to make quick and easy cards in five minutes that anyone would appreciate giving.  I decided after doing that series I would make a couple of cards for the more advanced stamper who has more time and more supplies.  Stampin’ Up!® calls them Avid Stampers.  These are people who have to own everything and do a lot of stamping.  I call them obsessive stampers!  I can call them that because I am one of them.  Whenever a new catalog comes out, I have to hold myself back from buying everything at once. It is a tough thing to do!

To make this card I used a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog called Birthday Cheer.  This stamp set has some awesome dies called Detailed Birthday Edgelits.  You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  One of the dies in this Bundle cuts out the gifts at the bottom of my card all at once.  I just think this die is adorable.  Another one in the set cuts out an edge of cupcakes which is just as cute.

The colors I used for this card are Lemon Lime Twist (oh I am going to miss this one so much when it retires in May!!), Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel.  I cut out the presents die in both Blueberry Bushel and Balmy Blue.  I attached the Blueberry one to the piece of Lemon Lime cardstock and then filled in the various pieces from the Balmy Blue piece.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
