Cake Soiree Birthday Card Idea

 

Design Ideas for the Cake Soiree bundle in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions catalog are truly endless!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card idea with you, but you could change the greeting to create a wedding or anniversary card, too!

 

Cake Soiree birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

I have used the Cake Soiree bundle (pg 12 in the Occasions catalog) to create the cake and stand, and then I added some vellum embellishment pieces from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit on pg 13. 

For something a little different, I created this card on Smokey Slate and Basic Gray cardstock... it coordinates nicely with the silver accents.

I also used the silver striped washi tape from the embellishment kit on the left side of the card with a strip of Silver glimmer paper and some Berry Burst silver metallic edge ribbon.

I stamped and die cut the cake on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut the cake base with Silver Foil paper.

 

You'll enjoy the 10% savings when you buy this stamp and die bundle!!

Birthday Memories 85th Money Gift

 

Ron 85th birthday 2017 We are blessed to have celebrated both of our dad's 85th birthdays in September!!  What an amazing blessing to still have my dad and Eric's dad with us!!  You may remember this blog post with the Mini Pizza Box birthday idea for my dad, when we celebrated his 85th birthday in September.

<< this is Eric's dad and his wife as they celebrated his 85th birthday in September.   We were gone on the stamping/scrapping cruise, but were able to be with them a couple weeks before.

 

Do you love that shirt!?  "It took me 85 years to look this good"!! :)

Today I am sharing the $85 gift I made for Eric's dad for his birthday.. I totally forgot to take a photo of the front, but here is the inside of the folder with the pockets full of 85 $1 bills.

 

 

Birthday Memories 85th birthday gift idea - Stampin' Up! designer paper and Birthday Friends framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut the Happy Birthday thinlit die using Pacific Point and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and cut it apart so that I could put 85 in the middle.  The 85 is die cut with the Birthday Memories paper and the large numbers framelit dies. 

TIP! Adhering the Multipurpose Adheseive sheets to the carsdtock and paper first is a huge help in adhering these dies to any project.

Before you think it's weird that I put the poodle on here,  they have a large cuddly doodle named Zoe... so this big poodle reminded me of her... I hope Ron and Jean figured that out when they saw this :)

 

Birthday Memories 85th birthday gift idea - Stampin' Up! designer paper and Birthday Friends framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

The fun die cut animals, balloons and cake are all from the Birthday Memories pack of Stampin' Up! designer paper!  Did you know it's currently part of the buy 3 get 1 FREE sale in October!?  The matching Birthday Friends framelits make this project a breeze!

I drew the balloon strings with my Journaling Pens.

Creative Pizza Box Birthday Gift for my dad's 85th birthday

 

 

Jim Burns 85th birthday cake, celebration Sept. 2017We recently had the amazing pleasure of celebrating both of our dads 85th birthdays!

We celebrated with Eric's dad a few weeks early when they came up to the Bay Area to visit, and we celebrated with my dad in So. Cal. in September. Eric's dad also had a big family celebration while we were gone on our cruise last week.

We are So blessed to have both dads turning 85 in the same month!

I will be sharing the card/gift I made Eric's dad in a future post, but today I am sharing a fun gift I made for my dad!

Our family gathered at a restaurant in Sierra Madre in early September to celebrate my dad, Jim Burns (yes, he's the artist). 

I wanted to do something with $85 since it was his 85th birthday, so I came up with the idea of putting 85  $1 bills into mini pizza boxes from Stampin' Up! and I came up with this fun way to package it.  I hope it gives you some fun ideas for doing something similar!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box stack - special 85th birthday gift with photos and $85 inside by Patty Bennett

 

I stacked 4 Mini Pizza Boxes, and decorated the top one with the Happy Birthday framelit die cut in Island Indigo cardstock,  as well as with pieces of the Year of Cheer paper and some gold and silver edged ribbons. 

In the top box, I made an accordion fold out of a bunch of 3x3 photos... and die cut 85 with the large numbers framelits and silver foil paper.

Happy Birthday Year of Cheer Card Idea

 

Happy Happy Birthday Copper Foil Card idea, featuring Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer paper!!

 

  Year of Cheer happy birthday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! copper and silver foil paper by Patty Bennett

 

This is my final project share featuring the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog Year of Cheer Suite, and I thought I'd share a non-holiday idea and show you a birthday card idea today!

I used the Happy Birthday thinlit die, Silver foil paper, and the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to die cut "happy" for this card.  I also cut a layer of fun foam with the same die and attached the 2 layers together to give it dimension!

Put your multipurpose adhesive sheet onto your silver foil cardstock, then die cut, then you can just peel it off and add it to your project... so quick and easy and no messy glue.

I stamped Happy Birthday and the banner on thick Whisper White cardstock in Black Archival ink and Cajun Craze ink and die cut it with the Bunch of Banners dies to complete the Happy Happy Birthday sentiment.

  Year of Cheer happy birthday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! copper and silver foil paper by Patty Bennett

 

You might have noticed lots of "festiveness" happening on this card.. I layered a foil snowflake, a starburst punched layer of silver foil paper, metallic enamel shapes and die cut layers of the Year of Cheer "fireworks" pattern paper under the birthday greeting, and along side of it on the card.. I really wanted this to be special!! 

I also added the copper Year of Cheer pattern to the bottom 1/4 of the card and silver tinsel trim.. wow.. sparkly!!

Happy Birthday Card for Eric!

 

My sweet hubby celebrated his birthday at the end of July, and of course I sat down to stamp a card for him.  I had this image of 2 adirondak chairs from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layer thinlit set in my mind... 2 chairs side by side at the beach... well, you see.. I was thinking, "what a great anniversary card"..... um  HELLO>>> it's his birthday not our anniversary!!  GEESH!!  So... luckily  before I finished the card I just grabbed the Happy Birthday stamp from the Window Shopping stamp set and made it a birthday card.. but seriously.. I don't know WHAT I was thinking!?  LOL!

 

Happy birthday card featuring Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers adirondak chair die cut.  Beach scene card features Color Theory ombre paper, by Patty Bennett

 

We had a great birthday weekend celebration complete with a trip to the Oakland A's game with fireworks, meals out and time spent with friends! We tried a new Italian place near us that was really good!

Eric birthday july 2017

 

So anyway.... a few tips for you if you want to create this card!

  • The texture image from the Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture stamp set is awesome for "sand".  I stamped Crumb Cake ink onto a torn piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the "sand"
  • The Color Theory paper stack is great for creating a sunset sky and ocean water!!  Sponge some Pumpkin Pie ink onto the (yellow) Crushed Curry ombre paper for the sunset looking sky.
  • The Fine-Tip glue pen works great to make the sunshine and lemonade glasses "wet" and glossy
  • Die cut the adirondak chairs out of the Wood Texture paper stack for realistic looking wood chairs.
  • The palm leaves and grass are stamped using images from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.

Can you see that awesome "sand"?  I love it!  So glad I pulled out the Touches of Texture stamp and tried that!

I used the swirl stamp from the Swirly Bird stamp set for the sun.  After stamping it in Tangerine Tango, I added glue from the Fine-Tip glue pen over the image and let it dry to make it glossy. I did the same thing for the 2 die cut lemonade cups - added Fine-Tip glue after stamping to make them glossy!

Birthday Party Hat Card Idea with embossing paste

 

Hip Hip Hooray, it's a happy birthday card!! :)  This fun stamp set just called out to me in the new 2017 Stampin' UP! catalog!  It's on page 72 and it's called Celebrate You! I love the party hat and the fun font in the Happy Birthday greeting!

 

Birthday Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Celebrate You stamp set with party hat and embossing paste background by Patty Bennett

 

I just knew that this card would deserve happy, peppy colors, so I selected the high contrast of a black background with my 2 favorite new In Colors:  Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst!

 

Birthday Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Celebrate You stamp set with party hat and embossing paste background by Patty Bennett

 

 I stamped the party hat twice, once in Lemon Lime Twist and once in Berry Burst, then just cut the "pom pom" off the top of the hat and added it with a Stampin' Dimensional to the top of the hat!

The background of the card is Stampin' Up! embossing paste mixed with Lemon Lime Twist reinker and added with the Pattern Party masks onto the Basic Black Cardstock.

1 youtube If you haven't tried out the Stampin' UP! embossing paste yet, please WATCH MY VIDEO here!

 

 

The embossed piece is layered onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock then everything is layered onto a thick Whisper White top fold base card. 

 

Birthday Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Celebrate You stamp set with party hat and embossing paste background by Patty Bennett

 

The greeting was really easy.. just stamp Happy Birthday with Berry Burst ink onto Whisper White cardstock, die cut with a layering oval die, and layer onto a layering oval scalloped Lemon Lime Twist piece!! Super cute!

The card is finished off with a piece of printed Lemon Lime Twist paper from the Fresh Florals paper stack and some Berry Burst crinkled seam binding ribbon!  I also added several rhinestones to the card for a little BLING!

More Celebrations Duo embossing folder cards

 

Thank you for your kind comments about my Stampin' Up! Celebrations Duo embossing folder video (here)!

I showed you these 2 birthday / celebration cards in that video, and wanted to give you more details so you can make them using the embossing folders and the Candle Border Punch!

 

Happy celebrations duo embossing folder birthday card ideas from Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' Up! Supplies

 

On the candle card (above left) I created a fun border with the new Candle Border Punch (2017 Occasions catalog, pg 7, or HERE in my online store).  I also used the Birthday Bright set.

For the card on the right, I used a greeting from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

I used the punch to punch a scrap strip of Crushed Curry cardstock and then layered it over another scrap that I had added 4 strips of Washi Tape to!  Creates such a fun colorful candle border!!

I simply embossed the word HAPPY on a 2"x4" piece of whisper white cardstock  and then stamped "birthday to you" from the Happy Celebrations stamp set.  The stars are enamel shapes from the Brights and Regals packages.  Everything is layered onto patterned candle paper from the Party Animal package (pg 5 in the Occasions catalog, #142738).
