Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. Today is the OSAT Blog Hop Three Cheers. The design team have created lots of inspiration with a birthday theme.
OSAT Blog Hop Three Cheers
Did you miss the You Are Amazing stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! January to June Mini Catalog? You may have since it’s in the front and pictured with a kit. But, you can purchase it separately! And that’s a good thing as the sentiments are great and perfect for quickish cards. Plus, I LOVE having a speech bubble to play with!
Layers! This simple card is amped up by adding multiple layers. They add lots of visual texture with color and mixed patterns. And don’t forget the Dimensionals!
After stamping the sentiment from You Are Amazing in Coastal Cabana, I cut the top Playing with Patterns designer paper layer and the Basic White sentiment layer with Hippo and Friends Dies. This set of dies is great for the variety of shapes and sizes of labels it cuts. Check out the shape and stitching detail in the photo!
To finish the card, I used the Coastal Cabana ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack. This ribbon has a lot of body. Not to mention the great slub texture in this sheer ribbon. See the video below for a tip to make using this ribbon easier.
To accent, I added Playing with Patterns Resin Dots in Coastal Cabana.
Birthday Gift or Treat Box
The 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″ Acetate Card Boxes from the Annual Catalog make great gift, treat, favor boxes. And, they’re super easy to decorate for any or no occasion in particular. I love to decorate these boxes and fill them with a treat and tuck them into a packed lunch. The surprise treat is always met with delight!
To coordinate this box with the birthday card above, I again used the You Are Amazing stamp set for the sentiment on top.
Wrap the box with a 2″ x 8-1/5″ strip of Night of Navy. Then tie it with a piece of the Playing with Patterns Coastal Cabana Ribbon. For your layer, use the leftover piece from the Hippo and Friends die cut you made in the Playing with Patterns designer paper layer on the card above. Add the sentiment. Then finish with Playing with Patterns Resin Dots in Crushed Curry.
Enjoy the video with all of the details for creating today’s birthday card.
