Birthday Blooms Happiest of Birthdays


I’ve worked with the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set before with my card I posted HERE using the very lovely color scheme that’s found in the Birthday Bouquet Suite.  It’s so soft and pretty!  But now it’s time to brighten it up by creating a monochromatic card using Tangerine Tango.


  • The Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper Stacks in the various color collections is a great investment!  For $22, you’ll receive 40 sheets of beautiful 12″x12″ paper, 2 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colors (In Color configuration is 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in 5 colors.)  This bold diagonal strip is just perfect for so many looks!
  • For a bold image, I stamped the sentiment from Birthday Blooms using VersaMark then sprinkled on Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.  You’ll need an Embossing Buddy so you won’t get little flecks of black where they don’t belong!  Black Embossing Powder is being discontinued, so grab yours now!
  • The flower image is stamped using Black StazOn Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  I colored the image in with an Aqua Painter and stamp pads, then cut the image out with Paper Snips and adhered to the Circle using DimensionalsNote:  The Circle Framelits are also retiring!
  • Before adhering the circle in place, I pulled apart some of the Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine and used that behind the image.  This product is also being retired – and you can order it for 30% off!


  • Try this easy layout in any of your favorite colors.  I think it would be a great card to build a set around.  Make one in each of the ten colors in the Brights Collection, since you will have all the designer paper you need in one packet!



  • To continue with the gold accent theme, a little touch of Gold Glitz Dazzling Details sets of the flower center.  Be sure to use this product once your card is 100% assembled.  It takes a good 20 minutes or so to dry completely.

Happy Birthday Blooms



Birthday Bouquet is another beautiful suite in the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog.  Having a suite of products that coordinates perfectly completely takes the guesswork out of what to use to create a gorgeous card – Stampin’ Up! does it all for us!  I’ve only used a few of the products highlighted in the catalog, but feel free to add more!

  • A beautiful designer paper like Birthday Bouquet DSP is the perfect place to begin a card.  Here I’ve used two of these prints combined with the Blushing Bride and White diagonal stripe from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • The pretty background created allows our sweet sentiment from Birthday Blooms stamp set to shine.  Stamped in Pool Party ink and cut out with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, it’s the perfect focal point to our quick and easy card.



  • The new Pool Party Glitter Ribbon is SCRUMPTIOUS!  I was a little hesitant to order it because usually glitter means it’s stiff.  But this is so soft and ties really nicely!
  • In case you’d like to copy this layout using this designer paper or any other pretty papers, the three designer pieces each measure 1-1/2″ x 3″.
  • It seems I use the Petite Petal Punch a lot – it’s just the right touch to so many cards!



  • For one of the flower centers, I used a Metal Rimmed Pearl; the other flower center is a Pool Party button from the Subtles Designer Buttons pack threaded through the center with White Baker’s Twine.  Don’t forget your Glue Dots for adhering the button!
