Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker. It’s Friday, yippee!! And, we’re celebrating birthdays. I’ve got a no layer, simple stamping Happy Birthday card and a stepped up birthday card to share with you.
Happy Birthday Card
The Happy Birthday To You stamp set
is a FREE Level 1 product during Sale a Bration.
That cake is so lovely, you may want to include it on cards
for all kinds of celebrations!
And coming February 1 are,
the coordinating Birthday Dies.
They will allow you to take the Happy Birthday To You stamp set
to the next level!
No only can you cut out the stamped images, but there are some additional texture pieces that you will love adding to your creations.
For this no layer birthday card,
you’ll start with a Whisper White Note Card and Envelope.
Stamp the cake image from Happy Birthday To You
in Smoky Slate.
Then, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy.
Using the stipple stamp, add random clusters of dots in Night of Navy after stamping off 3 times.
Tip: I stamped off on Grid Paper, a text weight. It takes on ink at a different level than cardstock.
Tip: Line the card up on your Grid Paper and use the grid lines to help line up the sentiment. OR, use your Stamparatus.

Stepped Up Happy Birthday To You Card
A friend was celebrating her 50th birthday last weekend.
And the lovely Happy Birthday To You stamp set
was perfect for making her card.
It’s not often I get to see someone open one of my cards —
it was lovely to see the delight!
She’ll be continuing her birthday celebration at Disney,
so that was the impetus for the color scheme –
Basic Black, Real Red and a little Granny Apple Green.
You’ll start by embossing with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.
Stamp the cake and flowers from Happy Birthday To You.
After coloring the flowers with Stampin’ Blends,
use the coordinating Birthday Dies to cut out
the stamped pieces and berry accents.
Stamp the sentiment, then fussy cut with your Paper Snips.
And layer everything up with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
You’ll love no white peeking out on this stunning black card!!
