Time to Celebrate!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s time to celebrate birthdays!! Today I’m going to share a FUN card created with the “Party with Cake” and “Party Pop-Up” bundle. It is really easy to use and I have some great tips to add a pop of color without a mess.

My club members did cards similar to this one, and I’m hosting a class on February 25th to showcase all the things you can do with this fun, fun bundle. You’ll find full details in my events page.

First let me show you the card ….


Start with the “It’s My Party” Designer Series Paper … you can make endless cards with this paper stack, combine that with the “It’s My Party” cardstock pack and your ready to go!!

For our greeting … I omitted the “with cake” by putting a post-it note over it before inking up the stamp, then we pulled it off so only the words we wanted were inked.

Next, I took my “Perfectly Artistic” Designer Paper (ends Monday) from our Sale-a-bration catalog to make our balloons. I love our balloon punch with 2 sizes of balloon. (Also bundles with the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set) We tied a knot in our White Bakers Twine and attached it to the balloon with a “rolled up” glue dot!

Ahhhh … Let’s get to the inside and make this card REALLY POP!


How fun is this! And it’s really simple to do.  Fold your cardstock in half and use the crease to align your die – there are tabs on the die that you align with the crease.  I used the “Precision Base Plate” to use with my dies … then used the “Big Shot Die Brush” which helps the paper release from the dies.  I LOVE IT!!!

Here’s a great tip for coloring your die cut …


Slide a post-it note behind your cut out and one over it …


This simple technique allows you to color your pop up dies without getting ink all over everything else!


Your birthday person who receives this card will love the surprise inside! This is just one of the two dies in this bundle. I have listed the items needed to make this card, click on any of the items to get the details .
