Make a Wish with Broadway Birthday Bundle

As I briefly mentioned in yesterday’s post, Louise Sharp hosted a three-day stamping event in Kiama, Australia this past weekend. One of the “surprises” of the event – guests were treated to a trio of projects I designed and a fun video I created to share these projects with them. What an honor to share with my Aussie friends. Today I’m sharing one of the three projects I created for the event. Here’s my card:

Broadway Birthday Bundle, Bokeh Dots, Stampin' Up!, Brian King

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Broadway Birthday. The Broadway Birthday Bundle is the foundation of all three of the projects I made for Louise’s event. I think it’s such a fun bundle (I call it a fundle) that you can’t overlook it. Here’s a closer look at the images and sentiments in the Broadway Birthday Bundle: Broadway Birthday Bundle, Stampin' Up!, 148321Not only does the set and coordinating dies work perfectly for birthdays, but it’s also great for other celebrations. While the card I share today is, in fact, appropriate for a birthday, there are lots of other occasions when someone might be prompted to wish. That said, I can’t wait to share the other two projects, which are (decidedly) birthday-themed.
  • A Wink of Stella Star. “Wish” comes with a dot for the “i,” but I had a different idea to play with. Instead of popping out the tiny dot from the coordinating Broadway Lights Framelits Dies, I thought it would be fun to top the “i” with a star. I painted Clear Wink of Stella onto a scrap of Blueberry Bushel and punched a star with the Twinkle Builder punch (I used the largest star on the punch). Here’s a look at this punch: Twinkle Builder Punch, Stampin' Up! 146321Just to confirm: Wink of Stella is a Brian-approved method of adding a glittery touch to a project. If you are fearful of glitter, this product will meet all of your needs.Broadway Birthday Bundle, Bokeh Dots, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
  • Beautiful Blues. Because of the mix of blues, you might instinctively think this card has a masculine appeal. The sky and water are blue – and so is Blue Willow China – but I don’t think any of these are particularly masculine. This color scheme is perfect, in my opinion, for either a woman or a man. The softness of Pool Party mixes beautifully with the boldness of Blueberry Bushel. If you like this color combination as much as I do, please save this: Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Whisper White, Pool Party, Blueberry BushelAfter I created the projects for Louise (but before Louise’s event) I shared this project with my local stamp club. Because the club met just as I returned from Alaska (and Mom stayed at my house while I was out of town), she was able to accompany me to the club meeting. If you need further proof that blues are appropriate for a woman, look a these four pictures of my club members (and Mom) sporting blue – what a fun coincidence:

Bundles: Broadway Birthday  Stamp Sets: Broadway Birthday, Bokeh Dots  Papers: Blueberry Bushel, Pool Party, Whisper White, Thick Whisper White  Inks: Pool Party, Blueberry Bushel  Accessories: Twinkle Builder Punch, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Broadway Lights Framelits Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I have more tips about this project to share – and will be back this weekend to share more about this fun project and to share the other projects I created for Louise’s event.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Such a fun card Brian and what a great mom you have. The Bokeh set is on my wish list!

  2. Curious about the Pool Party piece. Is that being held as incentive for us to read more this weekend or did I miss something! Great card – may case that one!

    • Thanks for your comments, Dianne! I’m not sure what you mean when you ask about the Pool Party piece. There’s a Pool Party panel and a piece that’s stamped with the Bokeh Dots set. There WILL be more about that stamped piece this weekend. <3

  3. What a great card Brian! AND, a fabulous photo of your beautiful Mom! I love big word dies and your card today really shows it off . Those ladies are so lucky to live close enough to you to attend your stamp club gatherings. They must be a ton of fun, especially with you as host.

    • We have lots of fun, Grace, but it is I who is fortunate to live near them. If it weren’t for this group, I’d only stamp with other people a couple times a year. <3 Thanks!

  4. Fun the background..tell Mom I said hi!

  5. Great pix of friends stamping. Awesome “wish” card, especially the star placement!

  6. Selina Kilpatrick

    So lucky to be in your “local club”! Thanks for always making us laugh and sharing your amazing cards!

  7. Stop the presses!!! There’s actually a Brian King approved way to add glitter? I may have to take to my fainting couch (and I never wear things that constrict my breathing). This card is another example of your creativity and I love it. The colors you chose works so beautifully together. Awesome job

    • Thanks so much, Robbye! I’m so glad you like it. The card needed a little sparkle, and I certainly wasn’t running glimmer paper through my punch. 🙂 <3
