We have a fun sketch this week at the Global Design Project, and I couldn’t wait to play with it. I wanted to share a quick-and-easy birthday card (we still have to make birthday cards in the middle of all these Christmas cards, right?), so I reached for two birthday-themed stamp sets in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- 10% Off Today. Today is Day Two of Stampin’ Up!’s 10% Off Stamps and Kits promotion. What fun! By shear chance (hee hee), I used two of the discounted stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog on my project today. I love the fonts and sentiments in the Perennial Birthday stamp set – here’s a look:And I adore this lopsided cake in Blow Out the Candles – how fun is this bundle?! While the bundle is not discounted, the stamp set is (if you want to buy it without the dies). Go ahead and throw them both in your order tomorrow (as a bundle) to get bundled pricing on both (the normal 10% discount). Here’s a look at this bundle:To see all of the stamps that are sale today, click on the picture below:
- A Little Sparkle. There IS such a thing as too much sparkle – if it has glitter, then that’s too much. I find, though, that Wink of Stella gives me the shimmer I want without the mess. After I stamped the cake in black and stamped the icing in Coastal Cabana, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the icing to give it a grand shimmer. Here’s a closeup:Incidentally this cake fit perfectly inside this 1-3/4″ circle I punched along the edge of this Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.
- Bright Birthday Colors. I love Coastal Cabana (it’s a go-to for me), and I love how it works with so many other colors. The cool aqua tones play well with the cool warm aqua tones in Bermuda Bay. With Lovely Lipstick, they are a hot trio. If you like this combination of Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick, please save this:
Bundles: Blow Out the Candles Stamp Sets: Perennial Birthday, Blow Out the Candles Papers: Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Lovely Lipstick, Thick Whisper White Inks: Lovely Lipstick, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black Accessories: Candles & Confetti Framelits Dies, 1-3/4″ Circle punch, Petals & More Thinlits Dies, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
