Birthday Bonanza DSP-not just for birthdays!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun congratulations card featuring the Sending You Thoughts stamp set and Birthday Bonanza DSP! The Sending You Thoughts stamp set is from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalog that you can earn for FREE with a $50 product purchase! I will admit that at first glance this stamp set did not make my list for SAB products, but after I went back and really looked at the catalog, this stamp set was a must for me! It comes with 9 different sentiments and you can mix and match some of them, depending on the card you are creating. So, I thought pairing this with one of the designs from the Birthday Bonanza DSP to make a fun card!

The base layer is this design from the DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Use the 1” Circle Punch to punch out one each of Mango Melody, Terracotta Tile, and Bermuda Bay cardstock to create a “balloon”.

2. Use the 1 1/8” Scallop Circle Punch to punch out one each of Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, and Coastal Cabana cardstock to create a “balloon”.

3. Cut six 3” pieces of Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

4. Make three bows using the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

5. Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay ink, cut out with the third smallest Layering Oval Die and use the second largest oval Stitched Shapes Die to cut out of Coastal Cabana cardstock to layer under the sentiment.

To assemble the card front, use liquid glue to adhere the baker’s twine to the back of the balloons, a bow to the Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Terracotta Tile balloons and set aside a moment to dry. After drying, position the balloons as shown on the DSP base layer, two scallops with one regular circle and two regular circles with one scallop, adhere the two balloons that are behind with adhesive and the front balloon with a dimensional:

Adhere the layered sentiment to the DSP base layer with dimensionals and then this completed piece is adhered to a Coastal Cabana cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and adhere a strip of DSP along the bottom:

Don’t you just love this card?? You may not need a congratulations card too often, but this is a great way to use up your DSP to have a card readily available! You could also keep the layout and just change the sentiment for a birthday card or even a thank you card!

Product List

Lovely Lily Pad first impression!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is my first card creation featuring products from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalog! I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog and this year is another hit! I mean, who doesn’t love to earn free products?? The very first “must” on my list, was the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, Lily Pad Dies, and the Lily Impressions DSP! I used all these items and the Sending You Thoughts stamp set from SAB as well. I just love the bright and cheery colors in the DSP and in case you didn’t notice, but the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is reversible! What that means is, one side is the solid or “background” and the other side is the detailed. Really makes stamping so easy, just stamp, clean, and flip over to use the other side! These stamps are not designed to “line up exactly”, but are just slightly off to give it that “artistic impression” to coordinate with the DSP.

For this card, I used this design from the DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Enough Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon to tie around the DSP, into a bow.

2. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the stamp lily background stamp in Flirty Flamingo ink, use Lovely Lipstick ink for the detailed side, and then cut out with the coordinating die, making three flowers. To give these a little sparkle, I lightly used the Wink of Stella pen to color over.

3. Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink and cut out with the third smallest Stitched Nested Label Die. 

4. Use the fourth smallest Stitched Nested Label Die to cut out a piece in Blackberry Bliss cardstock to layer under the sentiment.

To assemble the card front, I tied the ribbon into a bow towards the bottom of the DSP, adhered the layering sentiment pieces together and adhered to the DSP, and then adhered the lily’s with glue dots:

This completed piece is adhered to a Highland Heather cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink, and adhere a ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom:

Don’t you just love this Lovely Lily Pad bundle?? The paper reminds me so much of the Perennial Essence DSP and how it looks just like a painting! Since the DSP design I chose is so stunning, I decided to keep the accents simple. Don’t forget that you can earn each of these items for FREE with a qualifying purchase! This bundle will definitely coordinate perfectly with the many sentiment stamp sets Stampin’ Up has to offer! The Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalogs go live January 3, 2020, so get your wish lists together!!
