Simply Sunday: Birthday Bash

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share 2 birthday cards. One is an invitation and the second a birthday card. Both of these projects are so quick and simple to make … I used the February Paper Pumpkin to make these.

Let’s start with the invitation … the “invite” portion is already pre-printed for you, and there are 12 of these invite pieces in the kit. I matted the invitation with a piece cut from one of the patterned cardstock pieces that are in the kit. You can get 2 pieces this size from the sheet and still have some left over.


I wanted a little texture on the card so I embossed the Night of Navy with the “Simply Falling” embossing folder and used dimensionals to pop it up.

Our second card is for the birthday person.  Again I used the “Simply Falling” embossing folder, I didn’t want to add much more to my card, I wanted to mainly use the supplies in the kit.


Not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber yet? Not to worry … you can easily recreate this card with some designer series paper.  I used the left over glimmer paper from the kits flames, and cut my flames using the leaf from the “Stylish Stems” framelits. There is even a smaller leave die you could use … they make really good flames for our candles.

I stamped the greeting in Flirty Flamingo ink that was included in the kit.  They sent use two spots this time … I save them all and used them when I need to edge a stamp with a different color, or when I’m using small stamps or alphabets.  They are really handy to have around.

It’s fun and easy to create with Paper Pumpkin, plus it’s on sale right now.  If you purchase the 3-month subscription, you can also chose a FREE Sale-a-bration item.

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me.

Have a Happy Sunday!

Need an Alternative?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you some alternative projects created from the February Paper Pumpkin kit. It’s always fun to see what else you can do with the original items in the kit. I’m sharing from the Stampin’ Up! Get Inspired Blog post …

This kit will help you effortlessly plan the perfect birthday surprise for someone you love. Whether you’re sending wishes their way in a card, creating party invitations, or giving a gift card, the pull tab candle cards will help you pull it off with flare!


And since the kit name is Many Happy Birthdays, here are some more ideas to keep the flame of creativity burning bright. First, using just the kit components, you could turn the many happy birthdays cards into mini happy birthday cards by making a set of tiny cards.


Next, transform the pull-tab pocket card into a literal pocket card. Just assemble the card base, trim the bottom, snip the end corners at an angle, and add some adhesive at the bottom to seal it shut.


As always, hang onto that stamp set so you can use it on future projects—like this card. The geometric line images create simple background in any color scheme.


This kit is on fire! Don’t let the fun burn out—order many more refills today, while supplies last.


The Many Happy Birthdays Kit is just in time to celebrate our fourth birthday in March! We’ve come a long way and look FOUR-ward to many happy birthdays with our Paper Pumpkin peeps.


Don’t forget, right now you can skip to the Sale-A-Bration with Paper Pumpkin! Get a 3-month subscription for just $55 and instantly qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!

Stop back tomorrow and see what I’ve come up with!

Thank you for joining me today …

Wedding Cheers …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I finally get to share with you the card I made using the “just introduced” Sale-a-bration stamp set; Reverse Words.  I wanted to do something a little different with this stamp set so here it is …


I used the “Rock -n- Roll” technique on the stamp … I started with Blushing Bride and inked up the stamp, the I “rolled” the Sahara Sand ink pad around the edges of the stamp so it left some of the pink in the center. Then I stamped it onto Very Vanilla cardstock.

I matted my greeting with the Blushing Bride cardstock and mounted it onto the base of the card.  However … before I did that, I layered some Blushing Bride cardstock onto my base and the beautiful “Falling in Love” Designer Series paper. I just can’t stop gravitating to this paper!


I wanted to pull the sparkly effect from the paper into my card. To do this I used my “Wink of Stella” to cover the entire stamped area (leaving the greeting in it’s mat form).  I then added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishment.

To carry the bling factor further into the card, I added one of the strips of rhinestones. They are fun and easy to use and it really complimented the card nicely. 

I love that this card is a slightly non-traditional wedding card but still has the special feeling.


Hope you enjoyed, and thank you for stopping back to check out my blog. Remember, the Reverse Words stamp set is in our Sale-a-bration catalog and can be yours FREE with a qualifying purchase.

Have a wonderful day …
