Broadway Birthday Bundle for the Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals June 2018 Blog Hop. This month we’re going to Pick a “B” – projects for Babies, Birthdays or Brides, that is. Be on the look out for creations using new products from Stampin’ Up!

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

A Broadway Birthday with a Trio of Brights

For today’s hop, I’ve created a birthday card with the Broadway Birthday Bundle and a brilliant pairing of bright colors. How’s that for a bunch of “B” words?! Here’s my card:

  • Broadway Bound. I adore the bright colors and festive images in the new Broadway Bound Suite of products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog. Who doesn’t love a big celebration? To see all of the products in the coordinating Broadway Bound Suite, click on the picture below: Broadway Bound Suite 11005The Broadway Birthday bundle is the shining star star of the Broadway Bound Suite and the focal point of my card – and I couldn’t love it more. Here’s a look at the Broadway Birthday photopolymer Bundle: Broadway Birthday Bundle, Stampin' Up!, 148321There’s a marquee sign, party hats, candles and bold sentiments. Do you need more? Well, I added a cute cake with the Blow out the Candles Bundle – how adorable is this three-step stamping cake (I only added color to the base of the cake and let the icing stay white):   Blow Out the Candles Bundle, Stampin' Up!, 148322
  • Build-a-Sign with Broadway Birthday. The marquee sign that’s the focal point of my card is built from three pieces – using the Broadway Lights Framelits Dies to create each. Here’s a look at the components of the sign before I assembled it on my card: Broadway Birthday, Blow Out the Candles, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, birthday cardHere’s how I build each layer:
    • I used the Broadway Lights Framelits to crop the sign with Basic Black cardstock. With one pass through the Big Shot, you are left with three pieces – the border of the sign, the inside piece of the sign and the outline of the sign in the remaining cardstock. I only kept the black border from the die.
    • I stamped my sentiment with Poppy Parade and Coastal Cabana inks on Thick Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the same dies, keeping only the center of the marquee sign.
    • I used the outline of the marque to trace a marquee sign on Pineapple Punch cardstock I snipped it out to give a base to my sign.
    • I glued the black border to the yellow cardstock and then tucked in the Whisper White panel. So fun!
  • Bright Colors. If you’re going to celebrate a birthday, you might as well have some amazing, bright colors to coordinate, right? I reached for my Brights and 2018-2020 In Colors 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers to create a base for the card in coordinating colors and fun patterns that matched the inks I used in the sentiment. What fun! If you like this combination of Poppy Parade, Coastal Cabana and Pineapple Punch, please save this:Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Poppy Parade, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch

    Thanks for the directions to making the marquee magnificent. I can’t wait to see how the Paper Pumpkin ties in with this suite. I ordered the little candles on a whim and they came yesterday. They are so cute and will attach one or three to my FIL’s combo bday and Father’s day ensemble.

  8. Brian, you did the “B” challenge Brilliantly!
    That’s because YOU and your cards are:
    Bright, Bold and Beautiful
    And, you have excellent Balance! How is that for B’s ?

  9. Boy! Bold, Bright and Bodacious! (Glad I recently order this ‘bad’ bundle!)

  10. Adorable card! Great color combo. I love how you are preparing to coordinate with the upcoming paper pumpkin kit.

  11. Awesome way to wish someone a happy birthday, love how the sentiment fits perfectly inside this marquee die cut and adding the Pineapple Punch card stock behind it is a genus idea!!
    Fabulous color combination, as always Brian.
    Thank you fro sharing.
